Wadjet Eye Games’ Long-Running Blackwell Adventure Series Concludes Today with The Blackwell Epiphany
PC download available for $14.99; series will debut for iPhone and iPad in June
NEW YORK – April 24, 2014 – Independent developer Wadjet Eye Games is proud to announce that The Blackwell Epiphany is now available as a PC download. This final installment in their flagship Blackwell mystery adventure series sells for $14.99 from Wadjet Eye’s website, Steam, and GOG.
When her aunt Lauren died, Rosa Blackwell inherited a unique family legacy: the companionship of a jazz era ghost named Joey Mallone and a talent for helping the recently-dead cross over to the other side. Through four previous adventures — The Blackwell Legacy, Blackwell Unbound, Blackwell Convergence, and Blackwell Deception — players have seen the toll this work takes on the women of the Blackwell family. So far Rosa has managed to hang on to her soul and her sanity, helping numerous spirits along the way. But that’s about to change in The Blackwell Epiphany when she and Joey go up against a malevolent force that literally tears souls apart. Is their partnership strong enough to withstand this final trial?
The Blackwell games are mystery adventures with point-and-click investigative gameplay and retro-styled pixel art graphics reminiscent of the classic Sierra and LucasArts adventure games. Each installment has a self-contained plot that can be enjoyed independently, with an overarching series storyline following Rosa’s transition from skeptical newbie to seasoned medium. Likewise, The Blackwell Epiphany is designed to stand on its own while providing bittersweet closure for players who have been with Rosa and Joey from the beginning. For those who want to catch up on the adventure before embarking on the finale, the earlier Blackwell games are available individually or in a 4-pack bundle: http://www.wadjeteyegames.com/store/
