UPDATE - Here is what became of the generous giveaway: Halloween giveaway Horror story.

No tricks, just treats! Get Blackwell Deception for free as a Halloween treat here.

View the updated screenshots here!

Act fast, this deal expires Nov. 1 at 11:59pm Eastern.

Quote:
Happy Halloween from Wadjet Eye Games! The indie developer has just updated their retro-style, point & click PC adventure The Blackwell Deception with higher quality character portraits. And how better to celebrate Rosa Blackwell's favorite holiday than by giving away the full, updated game?

Of course, anyone who already bought Blackwell Deception from Steam, GOG, Desura, or directly from Wadjet Eye will get free access to the updated version. Here's the "trick or treat!" part -- for everyone else, Wadjet Eye is offering Blackwell Deception totally free through Friday, Nov. 1 at 11:59pm Eastern.

To pocket this Halloween goodie:

1) Visit http://www.rosablackwell.com
2) Click Buy Now to add Blackwell Deception to the cart
3) Enter Boo (or Boo2) in the discount code area and the price will change to zero

Just like that one house on the block that hands out full-sized candy bars, this is news worth spreading! Tell your friends. (Or else Rosa and Joey might have to come over and toilet paper your house. Just saying...)

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.



Happy Halloween!

I just finished playing the four games in this series and really enjoyed them. I liked the game play and story, and the voice-overs were very good. The graphics are not high-res, but are just right to support the atmosphere of the game. Can't wait for Epiphany (BW#5) to be released.


I point, therefore I click.

Hi Ana; Is this only for US customers? I tried the code BOO & it said it was invalid. I have the first three & I don't have this one.

Try Boo2 as it says in the first post if Boo doesn't work. It should be for everyone.

Hi Ana; neither code worked for me, so I went to the forums & found out that it was offered at Steam as well, but people were collecting several Steam keys to sell to others later. From the information I gathered on Wadjet Eye forums, hackers stole 30,000 Blackwell Deception Steam keys. That had to hurt Wadjet Eye big time. So maybe this is why the code for me & as well others from the forum will not work anymore. Why are people so cruel & greedy?? I'll buy the game later on because I want the games to continue, so I hope this did not hurt the company too much.

This is strange, because I didn't have to add anything to a cart, nor type in any code whatsoever. I went to the link in Ana's post, clicked on Buy Now, and was given a link to download straightaway. The game installed and now plays. No questions, no code. think

The need to use a coupon code was removed at some point yesterday due to server problems, but then overnight people exploited the giveaway and Dave had to take it down entirely. frown

He's going to post on the Wadjet Eye website in a little while explaining what happened.

Hi Rushes; either code this comes up in red: The discount code you provided cannot be used at this time (The discount scheme, to which this code belongs, is not active). Did you go to Wadjet Eye & read some of the post there? It is heartbreaking & I find it hard to believe that there are so many thieves out there. Oops, sorry Fov; I was just a little slower than you in posting.

Thanks for explaining, fov; the code didn't work for me either. I am very sorry that this generous offer backfired on Dave.

"Tell your friends" was taken too literally, it seems. What a shame.

I feel so bad for Dave. I understand what he is going through. The frustration of trying to do a good deed and some evil person will take advantage.

I had put off buying this series for too long and after hearing what happened I'm happy to finally pull the trigger and purchase. So awful this had to happen but it's the least I can do to support Wadget Eye after such a nice offer! smile
