Bestowers of Eternity / The Blackwell Legacy series
A series of adventure games centered around members of the Blackwell family and the ghost Joey Malone, created by David Gilbert
. The Blackwells solve mysterious cases together with Joey, a ghost who has lived with members of her family for many generations, and is passed on to a new host when that person dies.
The series was started in 2003 with the freeware game Bestowers of Eternity
, but never continued. In fact, the game ends when Rosangela Blackwell first meets Joey. In December 2006, the commercial title The Blackwell Legacy
was released. It is partly a remake of the original game, but continues the storyline as Rosangela and Joey go on their first assignment.
In July 2007, blowie released the parody The Crackwell Legacy
as a freeware AGS adventure game.
The series was continued in September 2007 with the release of Blackwell Unbound
, a prequel to the previous two games, starring Lauren Blackwell. The content of this game was initially a part of The Blackwell Convergence
, as a flashback, but cut eventually. When it grew too big and it would take too long to develop, Dave Gilbert returned to the cut part and decided to expand it and turn it into a full game, prior to the release of Convergence
in July 2009.Related links
