Overview: Blackwell Deception is the forth installment in my favorite point-and-click adventure series in this century. The Blackwell series definitely has a special place in my heart. Deception tells the story of Rosangela Blackwell, a not-so-novice medium, and Joey, a spirit stuck with the Blackwell family, and they both go about solving mysteries in NYC and investigating cases related to ghosts who couldn't move on to the afterlife.

Pros:
  • Despite having ghosts and all, characters are very realistic, well-developed, deep, interesting, funny, and loveable
  • The story is interesting and solving the mysteries is really fun
  • The puzzles are kept to a sober level of difficulty, but there's no handholding, either
  • The dialogues and the voice acting are really outstanding, I can't stress it enough. And this game has no problems with different volumes like its prequel.
  • Has a very interesting mechanic in which you combine clues instead of just items to solve puzzles, and that works really well with the investigation theme. This feature is even improved in this game.
  • Once again, you get to control both Rosa and Joey (whose roll is even bigger now), adding a lot to the puzzles
  • Having the smartphone to do research and call makes the game flow even better than the previous games
  • Beautiful, beautiful retro graphics
  • BGM is awesome, probably the best so far in the series, or at least as good as Unbound

Cons:
  • No in-game way to change the resolution
  • Alt+tabbing and alt+escing kinda screw the game (keyboard stops being recognized, some dialogues get cut down in a split second and you can't listen to/read them anymore), so you'll probably have to quit it and load it again to solve it

Bought on: I got it on a trade for another game key/link I had. Its full price is US$ 9,99 (R$ 16,99), and it's been as cheap as 90% off on Steam.

Verdict: This game is the last game in the series I've played so far (will start Epiphany right after I finish this review). Deception is considerably better, longer, and more clever than its prequels. It's really fun and brings you back to old-school adventure games, while still bringing fresh elements to the table. If you're into classic point-and-click games, you most definitely have to try it! I had played it a few years ago and it was still fun to replay it now. Don't forget to play the other titles first! While you could play Deception as a standalone game, you'll miss a lot if you haven't played them.

Congrats, Wadjet Eye-- while the previous Blackwell games play like shoddily made rush-jobs, 'Deception' is a damn fine experience. Bravo! I'm glad to finally be able to recommend something from this series-- just wish it didn't take 3 previous flops to get to this point.

Adding more artists to the repertoire definitely paid off. The change in visual style for the 4th installment in this series is refreshing; all my previous gripes with the art (rough animation, bad perspective/pixelation, flat atmosphere) have all been fixed-- and beautifully. The art/animation in 'Deception' is tight, stylish, and consistent.

The upgrades on sound (FINALLY; a pop filter! ...and proper mixing!) are fantastic. Gameplay is more refined & intuitive; a nicely updated GUI with more preference controls has been added-- even the writing & dialogue/timing are more solid and entertaining.

Newcomers, grab this one! If you're curious about the earlier games, I can only suggest buying the 4-pack Blackwell bundle if Steam offers it on sale again-- otherwise, you're better off watching a "let's play" of the the first three chapters.

There are multiple references to previous storylines that may otherwise be lost on the unfamiliar in 'Deception'-- but all in all, it stands alone as a fun & original supernatural mystery that any adventure gamer can enjoy.

I am a huge fan of all the blackwell games, and I can honstly say: buy this aswell!

I see they have made some updates on the graphics when it comes to the picture of people who is speaking,but kept the charm of 8-bit on the rest of the game! (me like)

The story is interesting, but I feel the beginning is somehow comfusing, since you're starting right away on a mission (as an intro) and then the text for the intro pops up. (After that ofc, you are free to play the game). I do believe that If you haven't played the other games, or read this, the intro can be kinda confusing. And you will/can be confused about how to do things or play thie game, since there is no tutorial.

Other then that, the game has some (very) small annying parts, were you have to click _exactly_ at the subject you are suppose to click on. If not, they will tell you they can't do anything about it, and you will be misslead and guided to endless wonder on what you need to do next.

Besides this the story and the "puzzles" are pretty good. You ofc, need to think a little, but it's normal logic! :)

I would recommend this game to the lazy ones, looking to pass the time. The game is quite simple, so it isn't really a challenge, but the story is interesting, especially if you like scifi stuff.

The fourth and penultimate Blackwell game oozes confidence. The decent voice acting and improved graphics power a compelling story which again reveals some backstory. Each game in the series has provided an intuitive leap in terms of storytelling and puzzles, cleverly layering the characters so that you really feel you know them. As well as a solid story in its own right, this game sets up the fifth and final Blackwell episode (sad, but it's better to wrap up a strong series than give us diminishing returns). Ah, I'm gonna miss these games. Don't forget to check out WadjetEye Games' website.

My personal score 8/10.

Here we have another game in Blackwell series. If you are not familiar with these series let me introduce you to the Bleckwell world. These are Adventure - Point&Click games with many great puzzles that will make you think hard. You are in a role of psychics that has to help the lost ghost(s) to find a way.

About the Blackwell Deception:

It's a 4/5 game in Blackwell series. You get in a role of Rosangela Blackwell that is working for a City Post. You and your companion Joey have to stop a guy named Gavin from killing inocent people. To do that you will have to resolve various puzzles, and save some lost ghosts on their way. On your way you will get a chance to:

- Face plant a baby in a door
- Blow on random people just for fun
- See the ghost kissing
- See ghosts having sex (almost)
- And many, many more

I would recomend you playing this game, and all the games from Blackwell series.

if your into point and clicks adventure games you can't go wrong with the Blackwell series.
they are ghost / detective stories where you'll need to swap between the 2 to hunt for clues.
kinda of serous stories with humor based on dialog between a shy shut in girl and her disgruntled ghost.

마침내 블랙웰 시리즈의 4편까지 모두 마무리했네요.
스토리 전개가 너무 궁금해서 한번 잡으면 무조건 끝을 보게 되더라구요.
또 네 작품이 도전과제 달성이 쉬운 편이어서 모두 달성하였습니다.

이번 작품은 기존의 2, 3편에 비해 썩 만족스럽진 못했습니다.
1-3편까지는 각 작품의 스토리가 연계되는 부분이 있어서,
3편 소감에서 언급했던 것처럼 1,2,3편의 분위기가 기-승-전 식으로 고조되는 느낌이었는데,
이번 4편은 조금은 동떨어진 스토리가 아닌가 하는 생각이 드네요.
(5편이 나와서 이 평가를 수정하게 되면 좋겠습니다.)
또 4편 내의 스토리로 한정하더라도, 상황과 상황을 연결하는 고리가 조금 부실하지 않나 싶습니다.
그리고 조이의 과거에 일어났던 일이 현 상황에 영향을 미치게 되는데,
그 일이 무엇이었는지 게임에서 밝혀지지 않아서 의아하기도 했네요.

그렇지만 퍼즐의 난이도나 게임의 볼륨적인 측면은 기존 시리즈에 비해 한층 나아진 것 같습니다.
또 스마트폰(무려 이름이 마이폰)의 도입으로 인터넷 검색이 더욱 빈번하게 사용된 점도
편의적인 측면에서 환영할 만한 부분이었습니다.
게다가 무려 키스씬까지...(?!)

아무튼 근 며칠간 블랙웰 시리즈로 아주 즐겁게 보냈네요.
이 시리즈가 여러번 번들로 풀려서 가지고 계신 분이 많은 것 같은데,
딱히 할 게임이 없다 싶을 때 한번 가벼운 마음으로 즐겨보시길 추천합니다.
(영어도 그리 어렵지 않아요!)

하나의 갈등 국면이 마무리 된 이전작에 비해 또 다른 갈등과 위기가 심화되는 네번째 작품.

최근에 나온 시리즈이니만큼 직접 휴대전화를 들고 다니며 활용하는 모습을 보여준다. 노트 필기나 검색, 이메일 등 전작에서 활용했던 기능들을 어느 장소에서든 휴대전화를 통해 쉽게 활용할 수 있게 되었다. 시대가 변화하여 새로이 나타난 첨단 기술을 게임 안에서 재치있게 활용하는 모습을 유감없이 보여준다.

줄거리는 더 길어졌다. 그러면서도 유연하게, 그리고 치밀하게 짜여진 모습을 보여준다. 전작과는 다른 형국의 줄거리를 보여주는데, 등장하는 적들도 저욱 비밀스러워치고 치밀해졌으며, 대립 양상 또한 더욱 첨예해졌다. 덕분에 전작들보다 더 안정된 몰입감을 보여준다.

첫 작품부터 전통과도 같은 도트 그래픽을 유지하면서 출력되는 텍스트는 보기 편해졌다. 옛것을 적절히 보존하면서 불편한 점을 조금씩 개선한 적절한 사례가 될 수 있을 것이다. 640x480이라는 지금으로썬 어마어마하게 조그마한 해상도는 불편한 점이지만.

게임을 풀어나가는 해결법도 조금씩 치밀해지고 복잡해진다. 줄거리가 조금 어설펐던 첫 작품과는 다른 의미로 어려운 부분. 이런 어드벤쳐 게임들이 다 그렇지만, 이 시리즈의 게임들도 '알면 쉬운데 모르면 어려운' 난이도를 보여준다. 공략이 존재하긴 하지만 가급적이면 최대한 스스로 고민을 해 보자.

게임의 갈등 국면이 절정으로 치닫고, 여러 복선과 암시들을 통해 결말을 향해 달려가는 느낌을 주는 블랙웰 시리즈 네번째 작품.

I purchased Blackwell Deception as part of the Indie Royale Bundle and to be honest, I didn't know the game beforehand. It's an old school Point and Click graphic adventure, a genre that's lacking nowadays. No need to say it far exceeded my expectations. I hadn't played a P n' C Adventure this good since the Chzo Mythos collection by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. Surely there are other great recent games like the Secret of Monkey Island HD remakes, Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse or Hector: Badge of Carnage but they're nothing new. On the other hand, Blackwell Deception is a breeze of fresh air. If I had to describe it I'd say it is a mixture between The Secret of Monkey Island (the boat segment is clearly inspired by the Pirate LeChuck), Maniac Mansion (the supernatural part of the game), Broken Sword (the ambience) and Beneath a Steel Sky (the gadgets Rosa uses, the disco scenario).
The characters are well built and the side dialogues make you know them better if you give the effort. By the end of the game you will really care about what happens to the protagonists (hint on a sequel) .
The puzzles are inventive and well thought-out even though I would have liked to see more item combinations. The "switch character" system can become a little confusing in the not so obvious bits because you'll need to analyze the effect Rosangela and her "spiritual guide" have in each single object to figure out a solution. There's one particular puzzle where you'll need to click the same object for an indetermined amount of times until you succeed, it's kind of random so you might get stuck in that part for some minutes, but it's really nothing serious.
The soundtrack is excellent, the trumpet songs reminded me of Dire Straits final studio album On Every Street.
The game has some replay value, you will probably miss 2 achievements during the first playthrough and then you still have the commentary mode to finish.
I got BD for about 4€ with 3 other games (AVSEQ, Oil Rush and To The Moon) so I consider it was a hell of a deal. Unfortunately I started playing the Blackwell saga from the fourth chapter so I didn't know much about characters' backgrounds/side stories but that's not the game's fault.
I've bought The Blackwell Bundle from Steam since then. I'd recommend this saga to any Graphic Adventure enthusiast

First of all, I must say I feel a bit cheated. The game runs natively in 640x480 resolution, but other than the title screen and one unused background mentioned in the commentary mode, all art is point resampled from 320x240. It shows and is such a pity, especially given that the background art used ingame is pre-rendered, so it should be a cinch to up-res it natively.

Also, the whole medium/psychic bashing was extremely heavy handed. I'm all for social commentary, but there's a fine line between this and irrational bashing and I feel this game crosses it at times. Yes, mediums are con artists. This does not mean they feast on child flesh, drink human blood for breakfast, etc, etc.

Speaking of crossing the line - Joey has been getting meaner and meaner with each game and some of his lines here are downright abusive. Not sure how to feel about that.

Other than that, another improvement from previous game. Really loved the implementation of commentary mode, and it actually had some good insights into development this time instead of n-th musing about how Dave Gilbert met this or that voice artist. Being able to use phone to look up clues was amazing, since you had to travel to PC apartment to do that in previous games, killing pacing in the process.

Some nice, simple puzzles - nothing akin to Donkey Cart puzzle in Discworld or Cat's Mustache from Gabriel Knight 3, everything was really logical. A few conversation puzzles as well, and few instances of needing to combine clues. Good hint system if you ever get stuck, although I still had to look some things online once or twice - though take it with a grain of salt, since I never was good with actual adventure game 'gameplay' - I play them mostly for story/conversations.

Personal 'not feeling ripped off' price point: $5

This recommendation is for the whole series. The Blackwell series are a bunch of charming adventure games about a woman that discovers she's actually a spirit medium and with the help of her ghostly assistant is destined to help souls cross to the afterlife. What really makes the games stand out is the writing and characters. The characters are likable and develop over the course of the series, biggest example being the protagonist, Rosa, who starts off as goony social r*tard but as she eventually accepts her family's calling she becomes far more confident and outgoing. The plots for the games make for some real solid supernatural mystery stories and they even take pages from New York City's history books and actually add some lesser known real people from the city's past into the plot. If you like adventure games definitely check these out, especially because the fifth and final game isn't too far away

I also really recommend Primordia and Resonance, which the developer, Wadjet Eye, help publish. I'd make separate recommendations for them, but I own them on GOG so I can't.

“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 fouth installment builds up on all the positive from the previous games. I find the story to be the best yet, with some parts being especially touching. There is improvement on the puzzles, most were well-designed and a couple just way cool! Voice acting, characters and music score/sound effects are all excellent. Also, what an ending!

Before anything I just wanna say that the only other game I've played from the series is Blackwell Unbound. I probably should have played the other 2 first before Deception but that's not too big of an issue.

As someone who has finished Unbound recently, I can see the differences (for the better) that the Developer applied into Blackwell Deception. A few small quirks were improved upon such as being able to move to the next map without having to switch to the Spirit Medium.

I especially liked the format in which the cases were presented in this game. You get thrown right into a case as a 'tutorial' and then given a few more cases that all eventually converge to one larger idea. I am glad that the Developer finally decided to reveal a bit of information on our ghostly companion and did so in a way that would keep players interested.

The one thing I didn't really like was how the commentary mode had large bubbles showing up all over the screen. I realize that you can turn it off but if you are trying to go for 100% during the first time, it's a little bit unpleasant. I like listening to the commentary but I'm not fond of the bubbles (the bloopers were funny though).

It also would have been nice if some of the phone features were used more. I didn't need to read a whole lot of mail so that feature felt a bit underused.

Overall the game was an even better experience than Blackwell Unbound. Finishing this title has me excited for the 2 other Blackwell games on my list. The combination of Joey and Rosangela seemed a lot smoother than with Lauren.

I have never been into Adventure games really, however I gave this game a try and I am glad I did. It has a very interesting premise and is a lot of fun to play. I recommend checking it out if you are into this genre, or would just like to try something a little different. It has an interesting story and it really makes you think.

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. *****
