Black Book is an RPG with card game elements (creating our own deck). Independent studio Morteshka, known for its narrative adventure game The Mooseman, is responsible for creating this production.

The action of the game takes place in the 19th century, in the Russian town of Perm, north of Chyhyryn (the location designs are based on maps from that historical period, coming from the Historical Museum of Perm). The inspiration for the plot and atmosphere was Slavic folklore, and more specifically the so-called Bailichka - tales alleged encounters with ghosts. Konstantin Shumov, an ethnographer and expert in this field, acted as a consultant.
