Adventure Game Scene of the Day - Friday 15 August 2014
The Blackwell Epiphany (2014) is the 5th game about ghost Joey Mallone & his ‘host’ Rosa Blackwell who between them help restless spirits move on to the afterlife. In this longer & more intricate story the duo investigate why some souls are being ripped apart which eventually leads to an exciting finale but one that sadly concludes this excellent series.
Although an improvement on previous games I’m not a fan of the graphics but for me the interesting plot, puzzles & game-play along with wonderful voice acting, witty dialogue & a great jazzy soundtrack more than compensated!
One of those games I found way too talky. Half an hour into the first game I realized I had been clicking through dialogue almost the whole time, and promptly uninstalled. Sometimes I consider giving the series another try, and maybe someday I will.
There might be a lot of dialogue in it, but it is usually short, concise and straight to the point without any lengthy expositions and very well written, and that is more important than the actual amount of dialogue IMO.
It is also not only the best in an already great series, but also a very clear candidate for the Best Game Aggie this year.
