Hi Jennifer!  I'm glad you like the games. :)

Yes, there are plans for a fourth Blackwell game.  I've kept mum about it for now because I have two other projects to get through first (Puzzle Bots and another game for PlayFirst), and I've learned the hard way not to take on too many projects at once, so we're taking it slow.  I can say that it's in the designing stages and we should be hitting production next year once Puzzle Bots is off our plate.

A guy who knows a guy who's the cousin of the guy who does repairs on Dave's vintage-motorcycle collection told me the story of the 4th one is about Notorious BIG's ghost so you need to win against him in a epic freestyle battle kind of like the insult swordfighting in Monkey Island.

its gonna be pimpin!

Is there any update on the 4th Blackwell game?

I have in my head "April" for some reason, not sure why.

I was just curious as to any updates there might be.

Greatly looking forward to playing it!!  :)

i think he just finished to code the last scene. Here's the last thing he said on twitter.

So. Blackwell Deception is now fully playable. With lots of bugs and placeholder art, but still. FULLY. PLAYABLE.

Any ETA Dave ?

Hi everyone.  Dave here.  You're not incorrect, Susan.  I originally had April in mind, but that was before I realized how much followup work there would be after Gemini Rue launched!  It slowed things down quite a bit.  Fortunately, the game is selling way beyond expectations so we're still very much in business, but it prevented me from working on Blackwell 4 as much as I would have liked.  Things have settled down on the Gemini front so over the last few weeks I've been doing nothing but Blackwell.

And like Frederic09 reported, I just finished doing a "rough" version of the game, which means you can play from the beginning to the end.  There are still a lot of bugs and some placeholder graphics (and no voice acting), but just being able to play through the thing is a major milestone.  It feels like a real game now!  As always I hesitate to make an "official" release date until I can say for certain when it will come out.  When I do that it inevitably comes out late. :)  But just between you guys and me, say... June?

That SOON?! I thought it'd be at least October/November - you work fast!

Looking forward to it, anyway!

That's like a tankard of coffee! That should last a good bit.

Gemini Rue was a gateway drug for Wadjet eye games .. After that I bought and played through the entire Blackwell series and I must say I am down right Impressed :D. And now I hear there will be a 4th one so soon!

It's nice to see that the 90's isnt dead. Im glad you guys exist! Keep doing what you're doing!

Well, like everyone else here I'm sitting on tenterhooks waiting for an announcement (any announcement). We know that the voice acting for Rosangela and Joey is over, and that the rest of the characters are being worked on.
So my question is: could you throw us a bone Dave? Any bone? Tenterhooks are extremely uncomfortable to sit on.  ;)

Hah.  Well, since you guys have been so patient, here are some exclusive VO clips that I've imported:

Joey and Rosa, after saving a ghost

Rosa tries to talk to a police officer

Joey chats up a ghost in a nightclub
