I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this game. The Blackwell bundle happen to pop up on sale on steam back in March and decided to take a plunge and buy it. I had to look up which game came first though so i could play them in order. I can say this though, I was pleasantly surprised! Its rather short when I look back on it but given how often I was stumped and unsure what to do….I felt I got quite a bit more time out of it. Plus, there is quite the replay value in choosing different options too. The one thing I really liked though is that it felt more like an adventure, almost like disc world.

When Rosa Blackwell’s only relative dies after twenty years in a coma, she thinks the worst is over. This all changes when Joey Mallone, a sardonic ghost from the 1930s, blows into her life and tells her that she is a medium. Whether they like it or not, it is up to them to cure the supernatural ills of New York in this critically-acclaimed series of point-and-click adventure games. When three NYU students kill themselves one after the other, nobody thinks that a sinister force is at work. Nobody but fledgling medium Rosa Blackwell and her new spirit guide Joey Mallone. It’s trial by fire as they set these troubled spirits to rest.
