[Update: Developer Wadjet Eye has ended the promotion early. "Over 30,000 steam keys were stolen overnight," the account tweeted. It states that people masked their IP to get multiple keys, so it had to end the promo early to avoid more issues with payment processor BMT.]
How about a free point and click PC adventure game with spooks and hauntings to celebrate this Halloween? To encourage people to buy the rest of the Blackwell series, Dave Gilbert is currently giving away The Blackwell Deception for free. Anyone who has played the prior three games will love it a bit more, but since this chapter has a story that stands by itself you won't feel too left out if you know nothing about the history shared by Rosa and Joey.
The Blackwell Deception was part of the Indie Royale Fall Bundle last year, and you can read our write-up of the game here. The version featured in this particular promotion is DRM-free and comes with higher quality character portraits, so hurry and grab it if you've never bought it before - this offer ends on November 1st (Friday) 11:59 PM Eastern Time. To do so, just head on over to the game page and click on the "Buy Now" button to download.
