Quote:
SAN JOSE, Calif. - April 15, 2014 - Phoenix Online Publishing™ has today released the critically acclaimed paranormal mystery adventure game Moebius: Empire Rising for PC and Mac. Players can enjoy this all-new tale by Jane Jensen, creator of the Gabriel Knight® video game series (and hailed as "the Agatha Christie of adventure games"), for just $29.99 via Phoenix Online's website (http://www.POStudios.com), Steam, GOG and other online stores.

A sophisticated, story-driven interactive thriller, Moebius: Empire Rising is the first in an original series of titles from renowned game designer and novelist Jane Jensen. Her award-winning Gabriel Knight adventures have been ranked among the best games of all-time, and her 2003 sci-fi novel Dante's Equation was nominated for the Philip K. Dick award. After nearly a decade designing casual games based on franchises such as Agatha Christie and James Patterson's Women's Murder Club, Jensen appealed to her fans on Kickstarter and crowdfunded more than $435k to make Moebius: Empire Rising. These funds were used to develop the game in partnership with indie team Phoenix Online Studios, which is publishing the title under its new publishing label.

Moebius is the story of Malachi Rector, a brilliant antiques dealer and historian whose photographic memory and eye for deduction transforms locations and clues into interactive puzzle pieces and historical patterns. A secretive government agency has tapped Malachi for an unusual assignment: fly to Venice and assess whether a recently murdered woman resembles a particular historical figure. As Malachi soon learns, this seemingly innocuous request is linked to a powerful paranormal theory the U.S. government will protect at any cost -- and the more he discovers, the greater danger he faces.

Enter David Walker, a former Special Forces operative Malachi randomly encounters in his travels. David's exactly the wingman Malachi needs: calm under pressure, an experienced bodyguard, and good with a gun. In fact, the typically distrustful Malachi can't shake the feeling he's known David all his life. But as Malachi learns more about the Moebius Theory and his unwitting role in history, even their growing bond might not be enough to protect him..

With its narrative- and puzzle-driven gameplay, Moebius: Empire Rising draws you into Jensen's signature storytelling as only a video game can. Piece together the links between past and present to discover the secrets the government is hell-bent on hiding. In addition to today's PC and Mac versions, Moebius will release later this year for iPad, Linux and Android.



Happy Gaming!

John Walker on Rock, Paper, Shotgun gave Moebius a...well, let's call it a less than sterling review.
Whether you agree with him or not, he's certainly entertaining. grin

Btw, don't read this if you don't care wot he thinks and definitely mean to play it.
There are spoilers.

Gil.

Thanks traveler, I had read that excuse for a review earlier - I got the impression the reviewer was in a bad mood at the time or like a lot of 'old skool' AG fans criticises everything that doesn't fit the criteria of AGs they've enjoyed in the past! lol He is a very good descriptive writer (seriously) as you can tell from his reviews of the most recent South Park, Lego & Barbie games. Yes he has also reviewed favourably a couple of other more recent AG games but his comments about the story-line in Moebius are so hypocritical as he seemed to really like Thief which he also described as having a ***** story but really enjoyed because of other non-adventure elements! So please take no notice of that review folks as the game is gorgeous!

I totally cracked up, chrissie, when he said that (something in the game) caused his brain to crawl out of his head into a corner and shoot itself.
Like him or not, John Walker definitely has a way with words. lol

I think this is the quote you are referring to traveler! rotfl
"And so begin their adventures, as they attempt to identify a woman who might be a bit like some other woman from history, for a reason so stupid that upon its reveal my brain crawled out of my head, into a corner, and shot itself."

Okay, that was a funny comment but not very professional - and I'm really not interested in self-indulgent & opinionated views from a reviewer who can't leave them out & can't just get on with using their excellent writing skills to present the pros & cons of a game in balance!

Quite honestly, I feel as though we are reading two different reviews because I did not find it entertaining at all.
