The Anglophile Adventure could turn out to be even better than the other projects. I suspect a castle and intrigues at the royal court, Jane Jensen style. Might be worth having that before Gray Matter 2. Perhaps not so much sci-fi or paranormal, still, it could be a very nice adventure, full of the beautiful English countryside which is one of the reasons why I live in England.

You can read this however you wish, but what Jane says in this interview is certainly promising for something related to Gabriel Knight in the future, even if it is not Mystery Game X. We might even get some news within a month or two, that is very soon:

"Jensen admits that she's pitched executives on a new Knight game twice since 1999. Following a merger with Sierra owner Vivendi, those rights now belong to Activision. With Activision recently opening up the Sierra archives to allow Telltale Games to create a King's Quest reboot, there could be hope for Gabriel Knight once more."

"I have talked to them again recently," Jensen says, "and I think there's a good chance that it's going to work out. It's not going to be ..." She pauses, weighing her words. "I think there's a good chance that we'll be doing something with Gabriel Knight in the future." There's the hint of a smile in her tone. "Just give it a month or two."

The interview is dated 7 May 2012:

And this on 9 May 2012:

"With the extra funding coming in, Jensen and Holmes have promised that work has started on a second, untitled game they’re temporarily calling “Mystery Project X.” That game is distinguished from Moebius in that Pinkerton Road will not be publishing the title. While Kickstarter contributors will still receive a copy of the game as part of their pledge, “Mystery Project X” will be distributed by an established game publisher and Jensen has intimated that Pinkerton Road will not retain the license to the game."

"That Pinkerton is partnering with a publisher for “Mystery Game X” is strong evidence that the game will be in an established series. When we last spoke with Jensen, she said that she hoped that Pinkerton would eventually get to work on Gabriel Knight 4, a sequel fans have been waiting on for thirteen years. Activision Blizzard became the owners of the Gabriel Knight franchise after acquiring Sierra in 2008."

http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/jane.../#ixzz1w4t537Ja

I read in another interview that Jane started Pinkerton Road Studio because she was not willing to give the intellectual properties of her games anymore, especially Moebius. The fact that she has the IP of Gray Matter even though it was published at DTP proves she is serious about it. Mystery Game X is therefore something she does not have the rights to and probably can't get them. It cannot be any of the 10 ideas she had recently for Pinkerton Road Studio, it cannot be Gray Matter II or Anglophile Adventure.

If it is not Gabriel Knight 4, it could however be something she worked on at Oberon, one one those casual games she developed and feels would do a great adventure. It would certainly be a way to bridge the gap and merge together the casual game and the adventure markets, something she said she is keen on.

Why would I be exited, she said we'd be excited, about a causal game I never played being converted to adventure game?

GuybrushThreepwood, this is true. In that case I can only think it is something related to Gabriel Knight. We will have to wait and see.

Would people prefer a remake of GK1 or a whole new Gabriel Knight 4?

After all, maybe there is a way to simply keep the voices and music of GK1 and only remake the images?

Personally, I would prefer a new game, as I've already played GK1. It could be GK4, GM2, Anglophile or something else. Doesn't matter, as long as it's a new Jane Jensen game. A GK1 remake would be nice, but I personally don't need one. However, since it seems it's leaning in that direction, I can accept it if it will introduce new audiences to the GK series and perhaps bring GK4 that much closer. And if I hadn't pledged, I would purchase it irregardless. smile

I am with Venus and others on this one, I would rather see a Brand New Game rather than a voice update on an Old game, We are Overdue for a new Good Old adventure game, so please, Pretty please with honey on top, Make a new GK4 or GM2, and if there is any $$ left over, then do the voice over for GK1.

I get very confused reading some of the threads about GK4 ....

Does anyone actually "have the right" to make a GK4 ??

Well since Activision now have the IP (the rights) to the GK series, I guess they could, if they would smile

Btw - can anyone get the pinktertonroad.com to load properly?

I think it's under some sort of BOTS attack lol

Still no issues here, either. Have you tried using a different browser?

Has anyone received any reply from the Pinkerton Road forum website? They have a CSG closed forum (I'm a member..or at least donated 50.00 to the CSG Moebius project) and have never been able to access the CSG forum as it is password protected. All messages to the webmaster and the contact email listed have gone unanswered. Jane J, do you read this forum?

You can email me at: edited out by BET
