Title: So, the next Blackwell game...
Post by: johnnythewolf on January 16, 2012, 08:53:57 PM
When is it coming out?

Naaah, just kidding...  ;D

On a more serious note, though, Deception ended on quite a big cliffhanger. So I guess it's safe to assume there will indeed be a fifth game sooner or later. But judging by the game's climax, it looks as if everything is gearing towards a final confrontation between Rosangela and the "bad guys", whoever they are.

Does that mean that "Blackwell 5" is going to be the final installment of the series, at least chronogically?

Like Boromir once famously said:

One does not simply defeat an entire evil brotherhood or whoever they are.

Hey, perhaps a sixth Blackwell could involve evil ghost clowns or Cthulhu.

I want to do at least two more.  Perhaps three, depending on how much story I can cram into one game.

I would love a game about Joey's life. That could come once Blackwell Series end for good.

Well, the way Dave has framed the picture as of Deception, there's room for virtually unlimited Blackwell games. It's a bit like Assassin's Creed.

Yeah, except how many stories can you cram between a timespan of about five days? You know, seeing as it's about that many days before the supposed end of the world is supposed to be in the game or something.

I'm talking about Assassin's Creed here by the way.

Getting way off topic here, but I looove Assassin's Creed.  Even the not-as-good-but-still-pretty-good AC Revelations.   I got the impression that Desmond was living entire lifetimes within the Animus, but only an hour or two passed in the real world. 

Interesting story.  Thomas Regin (Blackwell composer) introduced me to Jesper Kyd (Assassin's Creed composer) at the Game Developer Conference a few years ago.  I didn't realize who he was at the time, but I was retroactively psyched to meet him once I did. :)

Haven't had the chance to play either Brotherhood (let alone revelations) Revelations, due to economic issues :P, but I'm a huge fan of the first two games. I can spend hours just running around rooftops.

LiK Chan, I presume?  Welcome to the forum!

I'm working on it. :)  It's in the nebulous design stage right now, which means it's out there but I have no idea what shape it'll take yet.  But once I have more information I'll definitely share it.

Hopefully it will take the shape of an adventure game.

Or a sphere. I love spheres. Although not in the shape of an eyeball please. I have phobias relating to eyeballs.

Heh, I just finished them all up last week, as well. Thank you, Indie Royale!

I'm not entirely sure if a game based completely on Joey is really necessary. I mean, Deception practically told us outright "this is how he died", and that also gives a little insight on just who is made a Spirit Guide (although we have no idea why Joey was never given any training, unlike Madeline). I'm actually much, much more interested about the "mistake" that the Aunt made-- the one that Joey alludes to in Legacy. We never saw that in Unbound, and it wasn't touched on in Convergence or Deception (unless I totally missed something).

Ah, well, whatever it is, I will be anxiously awaiting it!

Would be nice to see yet another Blackwell prequel, with Dani Marco and Lauren Blackwell back. Or maybe the grandmother, if she did anything? Since she was a denier.

Either way, another game with Lauren would be so very nice. A small break from the too sarcastic/heavy Rosa/Joey combo, at least.

Blah. Assassin's Creed & Assassin's Creed Revelations are the ONLY true ACs released so far. An exotic Middle-eastern setting, an Assassin guild, Altair in both games (Revelations also contains AC1 missions explaining much).

Hollywood style AC2 with its templar sissies - they practically DO NOTHING to any citizens, they are just playing political games and backstabbing each other - unlike the first AC where templars were leg-breaking, serial-stabbing, publicly denigrating and then killing, breaking rules of their faiths, poisoning parties, and torturous bastards. And more than that. AC2 sissy templars are nothing compared to AC1.

Decadent AC2 is simply not an AC. Brotherhood and AC3 are catching up, especially considering that the Brotherhood introduced a real assassin guild (unlike AC2 yet again) and templars were much darker than AC2.

And no - don't mention the draconic online-locked DRM they shipped AC2 with. So wtf? Assassin's Creed Revelations not so good as... what? Brotherhood? Actually all ACs seem good except AC2 and AC4 with its FarCry/PiratesOfTheCaribSomething bullshit. ;)

They are probably too lazy to make assets for the FarCry AC clone. (AC 4 Black Flag.) That's excusable for indies, but not for milking AAAs like them. :P /offtopic

You can put me in the list with those seeking more about Joey and Lauren, and what went wrong. I don't seem as satisfied with Joey's past as Midnight, but, perhaps, I didn't spend as much time talking (and listening) as I should have. It seems to me that, as regards Lauren, an individual helping lost souls along their way might have had a problem with pushing someone off a balcony. Whether that has anything to do with Lauren's breakdown, I don't know. But color me curious about that portion of the story.
