And the vote is in!

Check the concept arts HERE.

Quote:
Veteran game designer Jane Jensen launched Pinkerton Road Studio just two weeks ago, and this weekend the project’s early backers got to vote for the first adventure game the studio will make. Drum roll please… with 61% of the vote, the winner is Moebius!

Jane is running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Moebius’s development. As of this writing, we’re more than halfway to the $300k funding goal: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1005365109/jane-jensens-pinkerton-road-2012-2013-csg

Backer rewards include behind-the-scenes involvement in the development, downloadable and physical copies of Pinkerton Road’s games, and “design bibles” from Jane’s Gabriel Knight days. (More rewards will be added this week!) If enough funds are raised, Pinkerton Road will pursue a second adventure game this year as well.

Okay, enough of the backstory! Here’s the scoop on Moebius...

The Story
Moebius is a metaphysical sci-fi thriller in the vein of Fringe, Jane’s novel Dante’s Equation, and (of course!) Gabriel Knight. Antiquities dealer Malachi Rector hunts down artifacts all over the world and compiles dossiers on their history. He has a knack for sensing “the soul” of an object. After his upscale Manhattan store is destroyed in a fire, Rector is hired by millionaire Amber Dexter to investigate a series of events and document them in his meticulous way.

The first event is the death of a young woman in Venice, who was found hanging from a bridge. As Rector investigates her life, he soon realizes that this beautiful and talented young woman -- and the interrupted path of her life -- had great hidden significance. It appears that Amber Dexter and his associates are playing with the fabric of life in a way Rector never imagined possible. Even he, Rector himself, is part of a larger pattern.

Malachi Rector must figure out who is doing what -- and whether their intentions are for good or ill -- before he can decide whether to play his pre-scripted role or try to change the outcome.

Game Details
Moebius will be a point and click, third person adventure game with a 2D graphic novel look. The game will have two modes: Casual Adventure and True Adventure. Casual Adventure mode includes hints, a hotspot revealer, and a simplified interface. True Adventure will be more of a challenge along the lines of Jane’s past adventure games (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter). Assuming Pinkerton Road meets its $300k funding goal, Moebius is planned to release around March 2013.


Happy Gaming!

I wonder if Ms. Dexter is ambidextrous? laugh

It sounds like the kind of intricate story that I particularly enjoy.

Thanks Ana! wave

Heh... waiting for Jane to confirm the name, it might actually be Amble Dexter. It showed up both ways in the PDF, chances are one is a typo. (Unless they're a hilariously named married couple!)

Amble and Amber Dexter! I like the idea! Maybe they aren't married but are good/bad twins?

I picked Moebius myself, but I really hope we see all three of them at a certain point.

Oh wow. These sound like so much fun! Can't wait for more news and wondering if the games will have that "Gabriel Knight" "feel" to them. smile

Thanks!

I messed up and joined too late to vote. Oh well. Moebius is most likely what I would have voted for.

Jane has now added e-books for the novelizations of Gabriel Knights 1 and 2 for the $50 and up backers. I am just so excited for this!! I've wanted to read those books for a long time, but I've had the hardest time finding them. Now I'll finally be able to read them. happydance

I thought kickstarter didn't let you edit the rewards.

She said we'd be excited about second game. That mean Gabriel Knight 4?

It's very mysterious! Probably not, but we really don't know anything yet.

It's intriguing to watch the sudden acceleration in numbers of backers. Is anybody taking notes about this phenomenon? lol

BTW -- MIT Technology Review has featured crowdfunding as one of the top 10 emerging technologies.

Becky, one of the main factors was Update 22 here:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/leisuresuitlarry/make-leisure-suit-larry-come-again/posts

That, as well as Jane announcing a second game being made. + Panic :-)

Updated my pledge to $50. Want ebooks. And there is always slight chance Mystery X is GK (though I don't think so now because of #4 on "Simple Truths...")
