The Adventure Company to Work with Legendary Game-Storyteller, Jane Jensen

World-Renowned Writer to Guest at E3




Toronto, Ontario, May 13th 2003 – The Adventure Company today announced it has an agreement with Jane Jensen and the company she co-founded, Odyssey Digital Entertainment, to write and produce an exclusive new title. Terms of the deal were not discussed.



Jane Jensen has made a massive name for herself amongst gamers, especially the legions of fans that adored her Gabriel Knight Mystery Series. Renowned for writing some of the most story-intensive games of all time, Jane has the ability to capture the gamer’s imagination.



“I’m truly delighted to be working with Jane, we’re all massive fans here,’ commented CEO, Richard Wah Kan. “She brings an amazing level of intensity to adventure games.”



Jane is currently in the midst of the design process of this next game, and although untitled, ‘Project Jane-J’ will be a mystery that takes the paranormal very seriously. Based on mind-altering experiments of a reclusive doctor, the story throws a young female student deep into a world telepathy and clairvoyance, where nothing is as it seems. Like CSI’s use of forensic science, the game and story-line will be based on real neurobiology and psi research.



The game-play will be a combination of investigative, third-person adventure game play, Myst-style logic puzzles interspersed with some arcade-style sequences. The title is expected to be on shelves in Q4 2004.

Great news, and nice to see The Adventure Company working with Jane! Good to hear a bit more about the story too, since that had not been revealed before.

Now the hard part, waiting until late next year to get a hold of it!

P.S. Um, Jane... if you need beta testers, just give me a call! laugh

This is something that I've known about for almost a year... ever since I posted Jane's request for emails to the richfx.com address. I've waited all this time for this announcement, keeping this a secret, so as not to jinx or disappoint anyone or any hopeful news on a signed contract. I can only wish for the best, for Jane and the team she picks, to design and develope this new game and/or series.

As for the Mods here.... HI! smile
