Dodane przez crouschynca dnia 10.06.2013 18:31

This walkthrough contains steps required to complete Blackwell Unbound and some additional activities. During the game you may work on both cases at the same time, so you don’t have to do all things in such order as I have described.

Table of contents:

    In the search of new tasks
    The ghost saxophonist
    The ghost woman on the construction site

Use the second topic (Isaac Brown) several times. Eventually Mitchell refuses to give more information, but now you know that Brown had a sister. Choose Isaac Brown’s sister from the notebook, but you won’t get any new information. After closing the notebook, ask for the article about Isaac and use the next topics which appear on the screen.
  • Go to Johnny Ivory’s.
  • Ask Cecil about Isaac’s sister. Sharpe becomes angry.
  • Switch to Joey and click on Cecil. The ghost will say something important about the pianist.
