Get Your Old-School Adventure on With the Blackwell Series

on January 14, 2012 10:00 AM

Indie games developer Wadjet Eye Games has released four of their old-school point-and-click adventure games in the Blackwell series on Steam. The games revolve around the Blackwell family legacy, where the main character not only finds out that she is a medium for ghosts, but that she is stuck with a ghost who requires that she help cure New York City of its supernatural issues.  The games voice acting in the trailer is a bit questionable, but the sprite based graphics appear to an awesome throwback to the great days of adventure gaming past.  You can watch said trailer after the jump.

 

If that trailer interests you, the four games are on sale on Steam right now, available as a pack for $14.99 currently (they’re usually $19.99), or separately for $3.75 a piece (normally $5). The games have been updated a bit from when they were initially released, with added commentary, achievements, and most important stability for modern systems.
