The first game in Wadjet Eye's Blackwell mystery adventure series.

Rosa Blackwell's humdrum life is turned upside-down when she discovers she is a medium with the power to talk to the dead.

With the aid of the wise-cracking Joey Mallone, the family spirit guide, she sets out on a quest to lay to rest the ghosts of New York City.

But is Joey as well-intentioned as he claims? And why is her family bonded to him, generation after generation?

"The Blackwell Legacy" is the first in the critically acclaimed Blackwell series. It is followed by "Blackwell 2: Unbound" (available now!), "Blackwell 3: Convergence" (available now!), "Blackwell 4: Deception" (coming soon) and "Blackwell 5: Epiphany" (coming soon)

Just Adventure - "It leaves most independently developed games for dead." - A-/B+

Adventure Gamers - "By the end of the game, [Rosangela Blackwell] is a main character you want to spend more time with." 4.5/5
Gameboomers - "An unusually compelling psychological study for an independent game to undertake."
Gamezebo - "A thought-provoking and detailed plot."

So buggy is almost unplayable


So so so many bugs. The worst one is that Things don’t appear in the notebook as you discover them so you need to constantly reboot and consult walkthroughs to discover what was meant to happen.

It’s also extremely short and not very complex.

But you need to play to joeys first appearance to at least get an understanding of the premise for later games.

You’re better off buying a cheap pc copy than buying the iOS version.

Fun adventure


I really enjoyed this game, very Monkey Island-esque! Looking forward to playing the others.

Great story


I'd played two Wadjet Eye games before this, Resonance and Gemini Rue, and while I don't think this game quite matches up to their greatness, it's still a very enjoyable yarn. The puzzle solving aspects are on the lighter/easier side, and the story is short length, but the atmosphere and fleshed out characters more than compensate.
