"Blackwood Crossing has an amazing story with great characters and themes that explored some sorrowing aspects of life."
7.5 / 10.0 - Gamerheadquarters
"With its story and atmosphere Blackwood Crossing gives an original adventure and provide various emotions to the player. Even if it has a few problems such as a few loading times, a slow moving speed, a short game time, PaperSeven's title transports you into the world of Scarlett and when the final screen arrives, you only want to keep on playing. We look forward to play their next game which, hopefully, will correct the few flaws of this first soft. "

“Blackwood Crossing pushes the boundaries for narrative-driven indies.”
Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person adventure game. A haunting tale of intrigue and mystery.
You play as Scarlett, a teenager finding her way in the world. You wake up, disorientated, to find yourself and your younger brother, Finn, inexplicably travelling on a moving train.
But when a mysterious figure appears, it’s clear that this is no ordinary train ride. It’s the beginning of a magical voyage, steeped in life, love and loss.
Navigating this powerful drama - where the world, and your abilities develop in extraordinary ways - you are forced to examine your relationship with Finn. You are orphans, and your relationship has always been strong. However, adolescence has opened the door to new interests, and you’ve been growing apart.
As you gradually uncover the depths of Finn’s anguish, the consequences of your remoteness become shockingly clear.

I've mixed feelings about this game. The game itself is pretty good. I liked the art-style. The gameplay is fairly simple but enjoyable and the soundtrack is pretty good. However, the game is only around 2 hours long, which is very short especially for its price. There are also some resolution and aspect issues but those can be changed via Steam's launch settings. I would also like to change the FOV (Field Of View) but that's also not possible. With all these issues there is no other way for me to rate it 3 stars.
