The Blackwell games are old school point-and-click adventures created by indie developer Dave Gilbert, who grew up playing Sierra's Gabriel Knight games and reading New York crime writer Lawrence Block. Four installments have released for PC since 2006: The Blackwell Legacy, Blackwell Unbound, Blackwell Convergence, and Blackwell Deception.
Though each game has its own self-contained story and investigative gameplay, the series has also followed Rosangela Blackwell's transition from skeptical newbie to seasoned medium. The Blackwell Epiphany
is likewise designed to stand on its own while providing bittersweet closure for players who have been with Rosa and her spirit guide, jazz-era spook Joey Mallone, from the beginning.
On April 24, when The Blackwell Epiphany launches, those who pre-order the game will receive several special bonuses: an exclusive video interviews with voice actors Abe Goldfarb (Joey) and Rebecca Whittaker (Rosa) discussing their work on the series; an exclusive New York City video tour with series creator Dave Gilbert showing and talking about the real-world locations that inspired the Blackwell games; an exclusive virtual invite to the Blackwell Epiphany launch party - streamed live from Dave's apartment the evening of April 24 (iIncludes a hangout / Q&A session with members of the dev team); The Blackwell Epiphany MP3 soundtrack; and a free Blackwell Epiphany Steam key that can be redeemed at launch.
