About This Game

Street psychics. Their blinking neon signs are everywhere, promising love and wealth and happiness. They make a fortune preying on the gullible and milking them dry. So when these victims begin dying and leaving confused spirits behind, it can only take a genuine psychic (and her wayward spirit guide) to clean up the mess.
From seedy downtown nightclubs to penthouse apartments to a luxury yacht on the Hudson River, Rosa and Joey will unearth the truth about the underground world of street psychics. Including some secrets that Joey would rather be left buried.

“Spiritual services, huh? Why do I always end up with the nuts?”

The Blackwell Deception is the fourth of five parts in the Blackwell series. In comparison to the predecessors the atmosphere and story are presented in a more serious and sinister way. Another strong point is the development of the sophisticated and charming characters.

The ability of combining clues has been reinstated and well implemented in a few conversation puzzles. Another improvement is the introduction of the mobile phone, which allows you to search for clues and information on the run, instead of travelling to the PC in your apartment.

The commentary mode has also been improved by providing icons on the screen you can click upon, resulting in a less intrusive way of telling background information.

The is the fourth game of the series. This is my favorite one so far and it has the best storyline of all.

You have alot of new gadjets to play with and alot less backtracking. It is also alot longer than the other Blackwell games and has some very interesting characters. The voice acting of the new characters are kinda meh though, I can still hear that cheap microphone noise, but their story is amazing! The puzzles are more complex than the previous ones and it's just enjoyable as usual!

I really like where this series is going and I cannot wait to play the fifth to finish the story! The only real con to this serie was the resolution, which hopefully will be improved in their future games!

All the Blackwell games are worth playing for their stories, consider the series if you like point-and-clicks! Be sure to start with ''Blackwell legacy'' of course!

As always with the Blackwell games, it is a fantastic classic point and click adventure game. You should play the whole series if you like the genre.

Another great addition to the Blackwell series, Deception is nice and familair (in terms of narrative style and what you can expect the game to look and feel like). It's good to see some more back story in this one to reignite your intial interest in Joey's character and help round out the characters and make them seem more real. The script in this one is great for interactions between Joey and Rosa (banter, as Dave Gilbert describes in the commentary) and the introduction of a new type of threat (besides a rogue ghost) makes it tantilising to think of what the next game will contain. Great soundtrack and visuals on this one, and I do like that they brought back the 'notebook' clue management system with Rosa's phone. As a side note, it's good that they limited the amount of content in the commentary mode for this one, there was just way too much in the last game when you found the unlock for them. Also nice to see what the voice actors look like but they never do look how you'd imagine compared to how they suit their characters. *****

Surprisingly enough, this game is really great. It has a creative story and gameplay, amazing voice acting, and is a pretty good challenge for fans of point and click games.
