    Originally announced in 2011, Black Death was to be a survival horror game from the indie developer Darkworks, intended for release on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Set in a town on the east coast of the United States, the game would have taken place during a mysterious pandemic caused by encroaching black fog. The player was to be one of the few not infected by the fog, who would then search for a way to stop the fog, either killing or curing the infected along the way.

    Following financial troubles, Darkworks liquidated in October 2011, effectively cancelling development of Black Death.

    A number of weapons were shown in promotional screenshots for Black Death, as well as in the game's demo. Among these were melee weapons, a pistol, a shotgun, and a "Chemical Blower" which could be used to spray various chemicals onto enemies.

    Unlike ammunition for the game's standard firearms, the chemical blower could be fueled with chemicals found in the game environment, with different chemicals having different effects.


    The game's soundtrack was to be composed by the band Low Distortion Unit.
