Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person game. This game opens the door towards a magic world, where intrigue and mystery are the two words that best describe the overall atmosphere.

As a player, you’ll take on the role of Scarlett, a teenager finding her way in the world. You wake up only to find yourself and your younger brother inexplicably travelling on a moving train. You don’t know how exactly the two of you got on that train in the first place.

Then a mysterious figure appears, and you realize that this is no ordinary train ride. It’s the beginning of a magical voyage, that challenges you to navigate through life, love and loss. The gameplay requires you follow Finn and a mysterious figure, while solving some puzzles along the way.

Blackwood Crossing is a powerful drama that will definitely make you change your perspective on the relationship you have with your loved ones.

Unfortunately, the Blackwood Crossing gaming experience hasn’t been a smooth one for all gamers. Players report that the game is sometimes affected by a few technical issues and limitations.
