Blackwell 1: Legacy introduced us to Rosa Blackwell.
She was an interesting character. An isolated and introverted girl thrust into uncomfortable social situations by her job as a newspaper reporter, and her newfound ability to talk to ghosts.
But this sequel takes a strange turn, jumping back in time to 1973. This time we play as Rosa's chain-smoking aunt Lauren.
It's an interesting bit of backstory to add to Rosa's character. Lauren is incredibly important to the present-day Rosa, and she has a very different personality to her niece - she's confident, confrontational, and used to her new gig.
This oddly-placed prequel is a scrappy game with some frustrating puzzles, but it's still an absorbing little ghost story
