Wadjet Eye’s point-and-click adventure The Blackwell Deception has been spruced up and turned loose as a Halloween freebie.
Wadjet Eye has released a lot of really good point-and-click adventures over the years (and one or two that weren’t so good, but never mind that), among them the four games in the Blackwell series: Legacy, Unbound, Convergence and Deception. They’re older games – Legacy was released in 2006 and the most recent, Deception, came out in October 2011 – but adventure games tend to hold up pretty well to the passage of time, and most Wadjet Eye games have that old VGA visual style to them anyway.
If you like that sort of thing, or even just think you might, you can pick up The Blackwell Deception right now at absolutely no charge. All you have to do is bop over to the Wadjet Eye website, click on the Blackwell Deception link in the menu and then select “buy now.” You’ll be immediately taken to the download page, where you can select your link of choice and be on your way.
And this isn’t “just” the Blackwell Deception, oh no; this is the updated version, with higher quality character portraits! Okay, so maybe that’s not the most Earth-shattering update ever, but hey, it’s free. The Blackwell Deception Halloween freebie will be available until 11:59 pm EST on November 1.
