Look up Battle of Waterloo on Rosa's smartphone.

spoiler in white

You need Joey to blow on the a/c unit to make the room hot. The younger Mrs. Haines (sorry, my brain is gone on the names right now!), will open the door leading to the corridor. Then get Joey to walk down there with the kid following. Rosa can finally escape.

Previews / Re: Deception: New background style

I definitely think you've gone the right way, Dave. The problem with the shots in the first post is it looked like the sprites were not actually in the scene, like bad CGI!
With the new ones, they definitely look more part of the background.

So looking forward to the new game!

It's been a while, but IIRC you need to get Paul's as Charlie's is in his e-mail.

Oh yeah, I completely understand the games are not made for the casual portals, but (IMO) it would be a mistake to completely discount them. You know you have real fans on there (like me!) and they would love to buy the games directly from here, but some of them can only afford the $6.99 price tag. I think I have bought them all from you, myself, but it must be a boost to the books to have a large number of people buying, albeit at a lower price.
Yes, HOGs is where's it's at at the moment, but people are also calling out for a darned good point and click because these come at a premium and so not many make them to the casual portals (understandably).
I don't know if you read the article by Joel on Gamezebo about the decline of casual games, the points you've made are exactly the ones being made. People do need to be prepared to pay more for a quality game, but they either refuse through stubborness or these economic times are stopping them.

Anyway, enough rambling! Looking forward to the news!

By lowering production values I'm not considering turning Rosa and Joey into stick figures (although that would be an interesting style on its own!).  The style I'm thinking of going for is along the line of Ben Chandler's work (Ben's actually on board to work on another project of mine).  His style is very simple, but very evocative.  But we're still in the early stages, so as with everything... we'll see!

I like that style muchly!
And I like the look of that game. Summer 2010? We're there!  :D

Haven't checked in for a while and there's new posts!
I must say I would buy any Blackwell game (or WEG game for that matter!) no matter how it looked.
However, as you know, I keep a close eye on what people on BFG are saying and I know that they do not like it if a game looks dated.
So, I guess it's really are you making it for the fans or would you also like to get casual gamers looking for a good game in that net? Because they are great games, but some people just can't see past the graphics. I've seen some quite nasty posts about only playing for a few minutes and quitting because of the look.
Hope this helped and give us the next game soon!  :-*

Chit Chat! / Re: Looking for games with audio commentary

The special edition of Monkey Island 2 also has audio commentary (plus bonus art!). Also by Telltale if Im not mistaken.

You are, I'm afraid. LucasArts is doing the special editions, nowt to do with TellTale and you will be able to buy through Steam (7th July, can't wait!).
