Thought you guys might be interested that a new Dave Gilbert adventure will be coming to Playfirst's download portal. (Dave Gilbert made The Shivah and the Blackwell games.) There aren't a ton of details available yet, but I ran into Dave and some folks from Playfirst at GDC yesterday and I've posted what I was able to get out of them here.

Also, Nintendo announced yesterday that Telltale is working on a new episodic series for WiiWare. It's not Sam & Max, but will be an adventure game with a similar episodic format. More details on this project will be forthcoming!

Good for Dave Gilbert! I also hope this new Adventure makes its way to Mac as well!

Thanks for posting this!

Thanks fov!

Wonderful news about a new game from Dave Gilbert. There are many fans of the Blackwell games here. grin

I hadn't read that the new WiiWare episodic game from Telltale is an adventure game. That's GREAT! Will you be able to get it via the WiiShop Channel?

I guess I'm one of the disappointed Blackwell fans since this means I will have to wait longer for The Blackwell Convergence! I am happy for Dave Gilbert though since I realize this is part of his dreams coming true. Also I'm very curious as to what the new game will be like and will it eventually make its way to Big Fish Games?


To love is to be happy with!

sierramindy, I'm sure the new game will be on BFG since they already carry many Play First games.

I am a little disappointed that Convergence won't be coming out as scheduled but very happy that Dave gets this opportunity!

Hi Gerry -- the Blackwell games are Indie adventures by Wadjet Eye Games (developer Dave Gilbert). The website is here.

You can read the reviews of the first two Blackwell games here and here.

Thanks everyone! Being published is like entering a whole other world, but Playfirst has been awesome so far.

When you started doing games did you hope to get this far Dave?
