Yes, I have found and played both Blackwell games and also the demo for The Blackwell Convergence. They are great games! It is true that they have a certain nostalgic appeal for those of us who played the old Sierra and LucasArts games, which I did and enjoyed immensely, and that explains SIERRA and INDY (for Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis from LucasArts) with the M to make it feminine. Having said that about nostalgia, I will add that the Blackwell series has an appeal that is strictly Dave Gilbert's vision for his games and it is very up to date and maybe even ahead of the trend in the way the storyline, the characters, the voices, the gameplay interaction and everything all fits so well together. None of that [blip] that you get where it is just filler to make a game last longer. These games have a very special appeal to my way of thinking and feeling about them. I hope your walkthroughs will encourage more people to play them.
Okay, I looked the word up in my dictionary and it isn't there so it is a slang word, but not as bad as that blip makes it seem. At least I don't think so, but then my imagination can run riot when something has been censored.
