Indie adventure “The Blackwell Epiphany” preorders start today; game will release April 24 for PC
“We help. It’s what we do.” For seven years, this has been Rosa Blackwell’s refrain as she scours the New York City streets for lost souls in need of saving. Rosa and her spirit guide, Jazz-era ghost Joey Mallone, help the recently dead find peace and cross over – but their work comes a price. And they’re about to learn just how high that price is.
On Thursday, April 24, indie developer Wadjet Eye Games will release The Blackwell Epiphany, the fifth and final game in the long-running Blackwell adventure game series. Starting today, this final chapter can be preordered for $14.99 from http://www.rosablackwell.com/preorder. At launch, the game will sell from the Wadjet Eye website, GOG, and Steam.
