About the Blackwell Mystery Series
Wadjet Eye's Blackwell adventure games star Rosa Blackwell, a spirit medium committed to helping troubled souls cross over, and her spectral sidekick Joey Mallone. The duo has appeared in four indie adventure games since 2006: The Blackwell Legacy, Blackwell Unbound, Blackwell Convergence, and Blackwell Deception. Their fifth and final adventure, The Blackwell Epiphany, will release for PC and iOS early next year.
In Blackwell Deception, an unexpected tragedy leads Rosa and Joey to a shady ring of street psychics who are preying on the gullible and milking them dry. When people begin dying, only a genuine psychic (and her wayward spirit guide) can help the victims' confused spirits find peace. From a seedy downtown nightclub to a penthouse apartment to a luxury yacht on the Hudson, the team traverses New York City to unearth the truth about this underground world -- including some secrets Joey would rather keep buried.
