NEW YORK - October 12, 2011 - Wadjet Eye Games, an independent developer and publisher of retro-styled adventure games, is announcing the release of Blackwell Deception for PC. This continuation of the supernatural Blackwell mystery series is available today from http://www.rosablackwell.com as a $14.99 PC download.
Blackwell Deception is a modern adventure game with a retro feel, thanks to its 2D pixel art graphics, classic point-and-click gameplay, and engrossing mystery storyline featuring two playable characters. The setting is present day New York, where street psychics have set up shop on every corner to prey on the gullible and milk them dry. Rosa Blackwell -- a true psychic -- sees right through the pricey scams these so-called "healers" are running. And when she and her ghost-partner Joey Mallone start bumping into confused spirits who consulted street psychics during their final days, the duo realizes that more than money is at stake. Now Rosa and Joey must help the restless ghosts find peace and expose the truth before more innocent people are killed.
" Blackwell Deception has been a long time in coming, and I'm excited to finally deliver. I truly think it's the best Blackwell game so far," says Dave Gilbert, Wadjet Eye Games' CEO and creator of the series. "During its two years in production, a lot of care has been put into the story and puzzles to ensure that Blackwell Deception can stand alone. So new players will be able to jump right in -- but old fans should feel like no time has passed at all."
Special DVD offer: In addition to the standard download version, a limited edition DVD containing all four Blackwell games and bonus content is currently available for $24.99. Immediate download access to Blackwell Deception and free worldwide shipping are included in the price. Wadjet Eye will continue to take orders for this limited edition DVD through this Sunday, October 16. After this special offer expires, Blackwell Deception will only be available in downloadable format.
