The Blackwell Legacy thoughts

The Blackwell Legacy is a point and click mystery game, first released in 2006 and forming the first of the Blackwell series, five games in total and completed as of April 2014. In short, I now want to play the rest of them. The Blackwell Legacy comes in at 3 hours to complete, and whilst…

Murdered: Soul Suspect thoughts
