Hi all. The long awaited update to Blackwell Epiphany is finally here. The latest version includes the following changes:
- “Softly, softly” achievement can now be properly activated.
- Fixed bug in conversation with Jim Peebles where you could be stuck talking to him with no way to progress or exit the conversation.
- Fixed bug where you could download the Trollgate app before you knew about it, breaking the sequence of events in Emil’s office.
- Removed duplicate Joey when he reports back to Rosa after finding the ghost in the gym.
- Removed duplicate images of Kendra and Mary when certain animations are played.
- Fixed bug where Rosa could end up in the wrong outfit, which caused a crash.
- Fixed crash when Rosa left the snowy balcony on her own while Tanya is following Joey.
- Improved response for asking Heather about Tanya.
- Solved tweening glitch which caused “Call” button to occasionally be added invisibly in the bottom right of the screen in the first flashback, causing a crash.
- Maggie’s parole number is now only added once.
- Maggie can no longer be identified before meeting her.
We took extra care to ensure that the patch does not invalidate save games. So if you are in the midst of playing and want to update, you don’t have to worry about starting over.

Slowly but surely, we are porting our entire catalog to everything we can think of. And now Blackwell Legacy, Blackwell Unbound, and Blackwell Convergence are now fully playable on the iPad and iPhone! So if you ever wanted a ghost in your pocket, your day has arrived:
Blackwell 1: Legacy
When Rosa Blackwell’s aunt Lauren dies after twenty years in a coma, Rosa thinks the worst is over. This all changes when Joey Mallone, a sardonic ghost from the 1930s, blows into her life and tells her that she is a medium with a family legacy to uphold (whether she likes it or not). And when a series of suicides occur at a local university, Rosa — still coming to terms with her new responsibilities — finds herself an unwilling detective in this gruesome mystery.
Blackwell 2: Unbound
The 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 again…
Blackwell 3: Convergence
A new film opens to rave reviews, despite its bloody history. A beautiful uptown office remains unoccupied, despite its prime location. A downtown artist berates himself for selling out, while a Wall Street investor congratulates himself on a job well done. Just normal life in the big city? Or is something more sinister binding these events together? Bizarre connections are a dime a dozen for the Blackwell family, but just how far back to they go? Medium Rosa Blackwell and her spirit guide Joey Mallone are about to find out.
Android, Mac and Linux versions will follow very soon!

It is with immense pleasure that we announce our next game. In partnership with Grundislav Games (of Ben Jordan fame), we bring you…
A Golden Wake
Coming Fall of 2014 for PC!
The Roaring Twenties: a bygone era of glitz, glamour, and promise. Nowhere is this more apparent than Coral Gables, Florida. The real estate market is booming and even an ordinary guy like Alfie Banks has a chance to strike it rich.
But with the mob on his back, the Great Depression on the horizon, and the Sunshine State’s idyllic waterfront only a hurricane away from total devastation, Alfie finds much more than he bargained for.
Based on actual events and featuring real life locations and historical figures, you must guide Alfie on his journey to reach the top of the real estate game as he deals with shady salesmen, cutthroat bootleggers, corrupt politicians, and much more, all while swept up in the events surrounding the inception of Coral Gables, The City Beautiful.
You can check out the new trailer, screenshots, and more game details over on the Golden Wake page.
So the first four Blackwell games were just chosen for a Steam flash sale during their big summer blow-out. This discount remains online for only eight hours. At the time of this writing, there are six hours and fifty-seven minutes remaining. So if you want to purchase the first for Blackwell games at the cheapest price they’ve ever been, now is your chance! -Dave and Janet
