Reviews

“It’s pretty much the perfect ending, both wrapping up and nailing a series that’s been going from strength to strength since it first appeared way back in 2006.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“The stakes are immense this time around. Rosa and Joey deal with more difficult cases and emotions than they’ve previously had to tackle. The game seems to be the longest yet and features a wide variety of locations to explore and characters to meet.”
Hardcore Gamer

“Its strong storytelling and solid puzzles will win you over.”

About This Game

A dead man’s soul cries out against the force of a ferocious blizzard. He cries for help. He cries for answers. Then he screams as he is torn apart like damp tissue paper.

This wasn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last.

The police are powerless to stop it, so the duty falls to the only ones who can. What force could be so powerful – and so malevolent – that it would destroy the very core of a life in order to get what it wants? Rosa Blackwell and Joey Mallone mean to find out, even if it means risking themselves in the process.

Blackwell Epiphany concludes one of the best point and click adventure series in years. It's amazing how the series developed for all this time. Each game in the series kept getting better and better. And this applies to every aspect of the games - the puzzles, the graphics, the sound design and dubbing cast and so on.

The story in this one takes a really dark turn and it takes it graceully. The ghost stories are moving and much deeper than anything you've seen in games made by Telltale per example.

One thing's for sure - I will miss Rosa and Joey very damn much.

There are very few video games that have made me question and look introspectively at my life and the Blackwell series is one of them.

In between the devastating and the heart wrenching is a story about a friendship and a love-letter to New York City.

The Blackwell series have been my gateway drug to adventure games, but since my adventures have begun nothing has quite captured a place in my heart like they have.

The Blackwell series is a very very good point and click adventure with pretty good voice acting.You need to play them all to really feel the story and the depth of the characters. The Finale(Epiphany) was FANTASTIC(you may shed a tear). Its one of those games where the toil of playing all those hours actually felt meaningful in the end. The Voice acting was satisfying enough to make you forget its actually a point and click game.
Some solutions to some puzzles may not be that obvious at first, but if you dont get it,plenty of guides there.

Since almost all the blackwell games have similar mechanics, didnt think of writing different reviews for each of them.

9/10 for the series. Writing this after playing all the 5 episodes.

Kudos to Dave Gilbert and The whole Team.

You want ending? Blackwell will give you ENDING. The Blackwell Epiphany is the final round of Blackwell adventuring, and they make a point of going out with one, if not several, bangs.

Rosa and Joey are back once more, even more dedicated to their cause following the events of Blackwell Deception and tracking a case that feels a bit heavier than their earlier workload. Things quickly spin into an even more grim situation, where bad times seem contagious and things are steadily getting less and less good, both for our plucky protagonist and, eventually, all of New York City.

Of the entire Blackwell series, I'd say this round's change of sprite art is my favorite, and the portraits are up there in the ranking as well. Puzzles felt a bit easier this time around, but it could just be having gotten used to Blackwell logic after already finishing four other games in the series. There's not much I can say beyond that without spoiling, though I will say you might expect at least one twist if you've been paying attention thus far.

Possibly the best adventure game I have ever played? Nearly all Wadjet Eye games are brilliant. Really poignant end to the Blackwell series which I think is an absolute must for any adventure game fan.

-Puzzles are of perfect difficulty
-Voice acting great
-Art beautiful
-Writing wonderful
