App description: 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+
Strategy Informer - "If this were a TV show, one watch of this and any TV network would commission a full series."
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."

Going to check this out on the strength of Gemini Rue. Loved it so much! Hopefully this is of similar quality.

My wife found a crashing bug in the last scene. You can interact with the flask on the ground before it's there (invisible).

In case this happens to anyone else: You need to do something first.

Just completed it, and I loved it. Looking forward to the commentary/extras and the rest of the series.
