#5 takes us back to the adventure genre with the end of the Blackwell series. Despite its retro look and feel, smart writing and design are hallmarks of the series.
With news surrounding big names in the adventure genre like Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Jane Jensen’s Moebius and Doublefine’s Broken Age, it may be easy to overlook the conclusion of a fairly recent adventure series. The Blackwell series done by Wadjet Eye Games has reached the end of its five game story with Blackwell Epiphany and manages to deliver an excellent conclusion to a classic throwback.
This week I was joined by Dave Gilbert: founder of Wadjet Eye Games, makers of more traditional adventure games, without the insane puzzles.
