    YES!!!!!!!!!
    I love your games but after trying the on the comp and on the tablet, i must say, playing on the tablet makes for the best, most experience.

    When I played gemini rue with my headset on and tapping the screen, it was an experience like no other

      Cool 🙂
      Now, when will Epiphany be released? I really thought both would be available simultaneously… hope it won’t be too long till we can get it 🙂

        Epiphany is coming! We are optimistic that it will happen quicker than Deception took. As I have mentioned elsewhere, Janet’s health this year has really taken a toll on our productivity. She is not *quite* back to 100%, but is getting close.

        That said, she’s got Epiphany running on the iPad and it’s looking pretty sweet. The biggest issues are slowdowns (those snow effects are really resource intensive!) so as soon as she gets that working on all iOS devices, we’ll release.

          Glad to know! I’m looking forward to play both games!
          As for her health, may she recover soon! Health problems are horrible 🙁
          Thanks for answering!

          My daughter keeps asking me when this is going to come out. I needed something to bribe her with to finish up one of her school classes, so today I thought, “Let me go check if there is any news on the Blackwell game.” Bingo. I doubt I will see her again until her assignments are done and she comes asking for the iPad.

            That’s what my parents did for me when I was a kid, so it’s kind of appropriate.

              Just finished Deception. Another cracking game in the series, these games have really maintained a high standard. Will be snapping up Epiphany as soon as it is released on the iPad.

                Android?

                • Dave Gilbert on 28/09/15 @ 9:04 am

                  Eventually!

                    All your games are simply pieces of art.
                    It is so obvious that you poured your soul into them.The storyline, the Atmosphere, the gameplay.. They all give an unique experience.
                    Just bravo man….bravo.

                      I finished Deception on the iPad the other day. It’s brilliant. Love everything about the series. Looking forward to Epiphany!

                        Please, remember the Linux port! 😀

                          Gosh, thank you. It’s hard to know how to reply to messages like yours except to say that they inspire us to keep making these games in the first place.

                            We haven’t forgotten!

                              Hey! I finished Deception waaay to fast… Again, I just got sucked in to this game just like I did with the other Blackwell games and could not stop playing! 😉 I just love everything about the games you guys make! I just downloaded steam on my computer and I think I’m going to buy Resonance soon! Played the demo and it was really interesting! I am playing Deception with commentary on right now and heard you ask what us players thought about the Joey & Jamie kiss and I think it was really fascinating and cool, and I would love to see more of those kind of things happening to Joey or Rosa 🙂 I think you guys knocked it out of the park with this game! And it’s sad to think that the next game will be the last 🙁 I could play these games forever. Well that’s what I wanted to write, I commend you all for doing such a good job with all the games you make!! Keep up the good work! Love from you number 1 fan from Norway! ❤️

                                  Looked on the App Store and the Blackwell Series is not on sale and blackwell legacy is not free. How come was thinking of buying it

                                  • Dave Gilbert on 26/10/15 @ 2:28 pm

                                    The sale only lasted until Blackwell Deception was launched, which happened a month ago. Sorry!

                                      Hello, dear friends. Big fan of the series and of Dave´s work. I live in Peru, so I buy everything through Steam. How come Deception is still only available for Windows? Is the iOS release only for portables? Thank you.

                                        I have the the app on my iPhone and it’s freezing when Joey gets done talking to Jamie for the first time at the club. When I try to exit the club it freezes in the same spot every time. I have to restart my phone just to start the game over. Please fix this!

                                          Hi there, howdy, hello. So, um, I love the Blackwell games and – brace yourself – I’ve come to nag you all about maybe getting this Androidable. I know you are all hard at work doing things that may or may not relate to ‘droiding games, but I just thought I’d leave a gentle nudge. I’m not too proud to beg, but I will if need be.

                                          Keep up the good work, etc.
                                          Sincerely,
                                          A fan with an Android. <3

                                            We hope to! Sadly, the company that usually handles our Android ports isn’t really around anymore. So we will have to find someone else before we can even consider it.

                                              Bummer. :/ Thanks for the update! I hope y’all find a good, gonna-stick-around-and-do-the-job-right company to convert the games for you!

                                                Sadly we are not sure. The company that handled our Android ports is no longer in business, and we have yet to find another company that will give us the same royalty arrangement. To be fair, the arrangement we had was so in our favor that I’m not surprised they went out of business. 🙂
