Wadjet Eye fans to experience a Blackwell Epiphany this fall

Wadjet Eye Games can be forgiven for being busy lately publishing such acclaimed titles as Resonance and Primordia (both winners in our 2012 Aggie Awards presentation, but we'd sure like to see the next adventure from Dave Gilbert himself. Fortunately, there's a new one now on the horizon, as the popular indie developer has now formally announced Blackwell Epiphany

In the fifth Blackwell paranormal mystery:

A dead man's soul cries out against the force of a ferocious blizzard. He cries for help. He cries for answers. Then he screams as he is torn apart like damp tissue paper.

This wasn't the first time, and it won't be the last.

The police are powerless to stop it, so the duty falls to the only who can. What force could be so powerful - and so malevolent - that it would destroy the very core of a life in order to get what it wants?

Rosa Blackwell and Joey Mallone mean to find out, even if it means risking themselves in the process.

As seen in the game's first screenshots, Epiphany will feature the same retro pixel art aesthetic of its predecessors. Series fans will also be pleased to know that actors Abe Goldfarb and Rebecca Whittaker will both be reprising their vocal roles as Joey and Rosa.

There is currently no firm release date for Blackwell Epiphany, but it's not too far off, as Gilbert is projecting a "fall 2013" launch.

Wow, it looks awesome. I love the cold winter theme. Hope this one is a little bit harder puzzle wise than the previous Blackwell games.

I gotta start catching up on these. I’ve only played the first game in the series so far. Loved the game itself, but it would freeze almost every five minutes, forcing me to restart and lose unsaved progress. This became quite annoying as it persisted throughout the entire game. Everyone says the game’s too short, but due to all the freezes, it took me some time to finish, and actually felt long enough^^ I allready bought the second and third game, I hope there are less bugs in those.

Dag, it’s your computer, not game bugs.

You may be right, but I find it hard to believe, considering that I’ve never had a similar problem with any other game.
