About the Game

When Rosa Blackwell's only relative dies after twenty years in a coma, she thinks the worst is over.  This all changes when Joey Mallone, a sardonic ghost from the 1930s, blows into her life and tells her that she is a medium.  Whether they like it or not, it is up to them to cure the supernatural ills of New York in this critically-acclaimed series of point-and-click adventure games.
When three NYU students kill themselves one after the other, nobody thinks that a sinister force is at work.  Nobody but fledgling medium Rosa Blackwell and her new spirit guide Joey Mallone.  It's trial by fire as they set these troubled spirits to rest.

“Evil doers beware! I’m Joey Mallone and I command the power of light breezes!”

The Blackwell Legacy represents the first of five parts in the Blackwell series. It is a solid point & click adventure game with an interesting female protagonist and a promising storyline.

While most of the puzzles are easy to solve, some of them do not work out as intended, resulting in a break in immersion (e.g. the dog in the park).

Fun fact: Game developers always hire their family and friends to do the voice acting.

Supplement: After playing all five parts of the Blackwell series I must confess, that it is a very charming adventure with wonderful characters and great writing. And with every episode it is getting better and better. Just give it a try.

I'll keep this short. Dave Gilbert is basically the guy who got me interested in point & click games again. The game just got a new patch with additional commentary etc as well, so.. Personal recommendation coming here: Get this first game & then, when you realize how good it is.. buy the rest of them.

Just one heck of a solid old school adventure game. Great start to the series and I'm glad I got around to actually playing it.

Such a well done point-and-click adventure for so little money. I just feel it should be more popular. It's a nice start to a series I'm eager to know more about.
