About this gameThe year is 1973. The sound of a lone, ethereal saxophone drifts over the Roosevelt Island promenade, while a series of accidents plague a midtown construction site. The citizens of Manhattan take no notice of these events, let alone think they are connected. Embittered medium Lauren Blackwell and her spirit guide Joey Mallone are the only ones who believe that there is anything strange going on, and they are the only ones who can stop an enigmatic killer from striking againâ€¦ Price: $9.99 (digital download) or $20.00 (CD-ROM)

AGS Panel Review
"A strong follow-up (actually a prequel) to Blackwell Legacy with some substantial gameplay improvements (you can now control two characters) at the cost of some graphic quality. The trade-off is well worth it."

HOW MUCH IS IT!?
I NEEEEEED HIS LAUNDRY LIST!
This was a good game, a great game and the re-playability...well it's there. (commenting on the full game, not Demo as I have never played the demo)
Dave Gilbert has reached the stage where he could publish his laundry list and he would get a bestseller.
And you know why?
Because even his laundry list is bound to be excellently written.
This is the first Gilbert game to actually play more like a game than an interactive story, losing none of the qualities of the previous Blackwell game. Great graphics (though not quite as great as Legacy), great soundtrack, and - the best thing - quality actors reading quality lines. The Blackwell series is the closest thing the indie scene has to a Gabriel Knight series - and we're extremely welcome for it!
