Rosangela Blackwell has a secret.
Only Joey Mallone knows what that secret is,
and Joey is the Blackwell family ghost who can only be heard or scene by Rosangela.
Sounds like an airtight secret right?
You see the creator has decided that the ladies of the Blackwell bloodline should be haunted by Joey and together they are to assist spirits who get stuck in the realm of the living move literally into the light. Sounds a little Ghost Whisperer? Let it slide. The game is an old school point and click style narrative puzzle game. Ask the right question and make the right moves to advance the tale. the Blackwell Legacy was released in 2006 and The Blackwell Convergence in 2009, the graphics are more along the lines of something produced in 1990. This doesn’t hurt it at all(isn’t retro graphics a thing now?). I enjoyed the story enough to play through the first game in under 4 hours. I was recovering from a leg injury and sort of strapped to my couch, but, this wasn’t the only game I took a shot at (Detective Grimoire was the other that I liked and will note). At present I am an hour or two into The Blackwell Convergence.
Here is what I like:
The art is nice.
The story is well done.
The music is enjoyable.
With a little thought the game settings and events could lead to some very heavy thinking.
Oh, and if you hurry the whole set may still be on sale on steam!!!
Hello peoples of Landroval, … whoops.
I mean internet peoples of the blog-o-sphere.
I want to combine the three blogs I have and find a reliable easy to set up offline editor.
Was using BlogDesk at one point and this just no longer works.

. This morning was my first bike commute in weeks. The temperature was cool. It was nice. The full moon was visible through a few clouds. Happy to be back on my bike.
Bought a car a few months ago. Really cramping my style. lol.
Looking to get back into a bicycle commute.
In other news, working on maintaining and expanding personal and spiritual growth.
Looking to become more involved with my AA, religious, and creative networks.
Working on a board game with a bike messenger theme.
Also working on learning some programming in conjunction with using RPGmaker xv ace to create a DS or early rpg style game which is centered around characters I created in other blogs. This means that I am shifting my creative focus from writing. The writing was not coming along well and left me feeling stifled and frustrated. I like fantasy worlds and settings so I hope the rpg project will lay the ground work for expanding my characters and lead to some short story writing. No big dreams here, just want to continue the little universe I have created in mediums I enjoy.
There must be poets who go unsung.
There must be poets who shouldn’t be sung.
That’s the plan.
We are just imitating the divine.
We need unread letters and awful poetry
The same way that
life seems to need death
Letters are nothing but compost.
Till a flower blooms
And someone’s sweetheart smiles
After hearing words pulled up from the dirt.
