Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Blackhaven a year ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 12 weeks ago.
The intern you play is Kendra Turner, a sophomore interning at the Blackhaven Hall Historical Society, the site of a ruined 18th century mansion, burned during a spectacular Revolutionary War battle and the home of Thomas Harwood, an American Founding Father. As you investigate the museum’s exhibits you discover the official story is untrustworthy in light of secrets you uncover.
Play involves investigating the ruins of the massive colonial home and farm, restored in a gleaming modern glass and steel reconstruction. You browse and interrogate a large gallery of historically accurate artifacts, paintings, and furniture. As you dig deeper it soon becomes your job to uncover the suppressed stories locked away, by reading letters and documents based on real surviving history, from the dawn of the United States to the present day.
Blackhaven was developed in partnership with historians and scholars including HBCU faculty and students.
Blackhaven contains strong language and written descriptions of violence and racism. Although these are not visually graphic, the developer suggests ages 14+ for the content.
12+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Although younger players could play this game, in terms of the mystery and investigation, some older maturity is required to process the descriptions of violence and racism.
