Title: Blackwell Epiphany
Post by: EranaIsMyGuide on December 09, 2012, 02:33:36 PM
I really wish we could see more about the next Blackwell game. I just played through all of them again and i can't wait.

P.S. i really liked the more chiseled look joey had before deception.

I'm with you. I can't wait for it to come out. I'll be jumping on the pre-order bandwagon. I'll want it on Steam, too, so hopefully it goes right through, since they have the previous four. Of course, that's no guarantee, lol.

If I get a chance before it's released I'll run through the first four again, but if it gets released and I haven't played them again, I won't be able to wait. I'll just dive right in and replay all later. Sort of like I do with series of books.

That is from Alex Whittington of Tasteful Comics (http://tastefulcomics.com/#thecomic). His humor is definitely... interesting!

I think we all know good things need time :D I'm looking forward to the commentary about the earmuffs and winter outfits, it looks so like Rosangela

Thanks! It's still in the design stage, although we've got the first section pretty set in stone (which is why there's art created). The one side effect of publishing games like Da New Guys, Resonance and Primordia is that I have had almost NO time to work on my own stuff. That will all change in 2013.

We originally gave Rosa a hat but she lost a lot of her iconic look, so earmuffs became the thing! People are thinking it's some kind of bluetooth headset, but I don't think Rosa is that savvy.

That what I was thinking to, a hat or some kind of cap would make her less distinguishable due to limitations of graphics. Earmuffs still show her hair (which is the main part of her appearance thus being called RED by Joey) still it's kinda old fashioned (Rosa never seemed like she went with the latest fads) and nerdy perfectly fitting her style. I can see joey goind wild on these, though he should have seen her with them already...he is with her for a few years already right?
Please eep up the good work :D

I always think of Rosa as being around 5 years behind the current trends.  I remember seeing the whole "long-sleeve t-shirt under a short-sleeve t-shirt" a LOT around 2005 or so, which is why I gave her that outfit in Deception. Likewise I saw a lot of those overcoats with big belts around the ribcage a few years later. Which is the coat she's got in the next game.

I'm really looking forward to seeing if Joey learns more control after his encounter with Madeline, who by the way looks more corporeal than other spirits and was able to touch Rosa  ???. Maybe some new tricks to help in their investigation.

Well Joey already showed stuff Madeline seemed incapable of, like manifesting the bond between him and the medium as his tie, since he never had some kind of teacher, implying the spirit guide isn't chosen by random, many things he does know he does subcontiously.
What we already have is Rosa developing her power (sadly she'll never fall through the prtal again) and several kinda os different mediums and powers like Gavin.

Usually in stories where you have powers that aren't explained you do some unpredictable things without thinking but if you focus and try you can do even more. Despite his tie Joey didn't know how to use it like bringing himself back to Rosa without Madeline. I am curious to see what Rosa can learn to do too but Joey is by far my favorite.

Oh wow. Rosa looks like a badass in that trenchcoat (earmuffs notwithstanding).

Likewise I saw a lot of those overcoats with big belts around the ribcage a few years later. Which is the coat she's got in the next game.
That makes sense. I can't see Rosa making an effort to keep up with current trends. Her dorkiness is part of why I identify with her so much. She's a wonderful heroine.

Also, this post made me remember that Legacy came out in 2006 or so, which means I've been playing these games since I was 14. That's kinda weird to think about.

Haha. Wow. That doesn't make me feel old at ALL! ;D

Seriously though. That's kind of cool to hear. It's always nice to hear from people who started playing these games when they came out, as opposed to those who only discovered them recently via Steam or GOG or Indie Royale. It's folks like you who got me through those "early dark years." So thank you.

No problem. :) It's been wonderful to see Wadjet Eye become so big in the last year or so. I've been hearing about the games you've been publishing on some of the most mainstream game websites around.
