Blackwell Convergence is the third game in Blackwell series and it continues at the same pace, still being adventure point-n-click. Another solid title of ghost-helping, albeit with removed Notebook combination feature that was making it more unique.
The game still runs on quite old adventure engine, even if it's updated. It still means that you may encounter small glitches, though... I don't remember any, unlike Blackwell Legacy. The engine still has this anti-aliasing applied to scaled sprites, ruining pixel-art somewhat, but scaling is rarely used in this part. Pressing Shift+Tab, commonly used for Steam Overlay, will make the game to instaskip all the dialogues, you can fix it by just pressing Tab. No real support for widescreen, but at least image isn't stretched.
The game has quite a modern game design to it, as you can't die or get stuck in a dead end because you didn't pick some item hour ago. The game keeps ability to switch between Rosa and Joey (sidekick ghost who can only blow air). Ability to combine clues in notebook is gone completely this time around, which is shame, as it was unique part of it. Notebook is still there though. But it added investigative feature where you can search Internet (and mail), which means that you get to type things that you may figured out, great!
Pixel-art and animations are better than in Legacy, this time even backgrounds look top-notch. Animation for character portrait is missing though. The setting is taking on more of rainy and yellow color this time around and it keeps a bit of jazzy feel in music of Unbound but more modern, relaxing. Though, it feels more forgettable. I still think that soundtrack in Legacy was superior.
And once again the game will start with quite a motion, this time with included short intro case, so you will have easier time starting playing than in Legacy. Then you are off to mostly wandering and chasing a mystery, maybe even saving some ghosts, getting your villian along the way, and a familiar one at that. The scope of a game feels larger and you will even get to explore moer unique locations and character. It does have one loose end that never got properly explained: why certain ghost babbles like another character sometimes. Yea, it's hinted how it got there, but never clearly explained. But yes, it's a little bit more on wandering side. The puzzles make sense by now fully and you getto type your clues in computer.
Also, Rosa trying to act more confidient and doing strange jokes is still cute.
And yes, once again it comes with a commentary mode, great! Well, if forget that once again the focus is on voice acting. Also comes with extra voice acting bloober. Nothing as much of extra content as in Unbound.
Another solid adventure, another solid game which has it's own charm. This and Blackwell Unbound are connected by plot, so try to not play Convergence before that one. Though this one felt as weakest entry for some reason, but technically it's a good game.
