Tucked in at the bottom of a Wadjet Eye press release announcing the final game in the Blackwell series for PC today is the news that the supernatural mystery franchise is coming to iPhones and iPads “this spring”. The adventure games imprint has already ported over sci-fi escapade Gemini Rue (to great acclaim from us) and synagogue-saving saga The Shivah.
The soon-to-be five Blackwell games comprise one of the most respected adventure game series in recent memory. You play as psychic medium Rosa Blackwell and her 1930′s wiseguy sidekick Joey Mallone as they travel around New York helping troubled ghosts find their way to the afterlife.
Presumably Wadjet Eye are going to be porting the pentalogy in order starting with the Blackwell Legacy. I’ll be sure to let you know when there’s a proper release date nailed down. In the meantime, read Phil’s September interview with the husband-and-wife team at the core of Wadjet Eye.
A trailer for the Blackwell series is below.
