Black Box of Doom in action.

The Black Box of Doom is a bug encountered while playing the GOG.com Albian Years edition of Creatures 2 in Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10. Upon launching Creatures 2, a black box appears and takes up much of the player's screen, making the game unplayable. Minimising the Creatures 2 window does not also get rid of the Black Box of Doom. The player must quit the game in order to get rid of the Black Box of Doom.

Using Ctrl-Alt-Del to go to the Security Screen and then canceling out has also been reported to remove the Black Box of Doom, although using the Security Screen gives rise to the Invisible Hand Bug.

Please note that this is not the Black Screen of Death.
