Moebius review

One of the higher profile Kickstarters in the Great Wave of 2012 was Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen's half-million pot for her new Pinkerton Road Studio. The first project to emerge from this, in collaboration with Phoenix Online, is Moebius: Empire Rising. A brand new adventure game featuring a genius antiques dealer and a worldwide, history-spanning mystery. Is it any good? Spoiler: No, it's astonishingly…

Where Time Becomes A Loop: Moebius Demo Released

Our John certainly enjoyed Jane Jensen's Moebius when he got to play it last year, but how has the adventure game changed over the last eight months? And do you truly trust John anyway? You can test both Moebius and your gamepatibility with John through a demo for Jensen's new point-and-clicker, available now for Windows and Mac.

Metaphysical Mystery Tour: Moebius

I watched the new trailer for Jane Jensen's Moebius between the gaps in my fingers, afraid that it might be as frightening as the last video of Malachi Rector's adventures that slipped out of my monitor and into the screaming recesses of my brain. The little that I saw confirmed what I'd expected - the haunting qualities remain. Moebius looks like a Sims 3 murder…

Hands On: Jane Jensen’s Moebius

As RPS drop-out Kieron tweeted the other day, "We are the generation who funded more point and click adventures, and we'll get what we deserve." He was expressing frustration at the woeful lack of funding for Satellite Reign (FUND IT!), while seemingly so many adventures are seeing that green, green light. But what of those adventures? For all of last year's fuss, little has appeared…

Daytime Soap Or First Trailer For Jane Jensen’s Moebius?

This trailer is rubbish! That doesn't mean the game (the result of Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen's successful Kickstarter) will be, of course. But the twangy music and exaggerated, funny-accent-based-acting seems straight out of Days of Our Lives. Also, when the unconvincingly English lead character introduces himself as Malachi Rector, I hear Malachi Rectum. Because I am a child. (Also because of his faux-posh-Brit accent).…

Kickstarter Katchup

This makes sense as a thing to do. With so many gaming Kickstarters running, for games we're genuinely interested to play, let's have a look to see where they all are this weekend. The headline news is that Grim Dawn has finished its run, with just shy of double its target reached. Below you can catch up on Moebius, Xenonauts, Tex Murphy, and many more.…

Moebius Money, No Problems

Hmm, maybe we need to somehow add a live Kickstarter ticker feed to the site to save ourselves a trinity of blogging. The ritual seems to be: 1) news of returning dev/series via crowdsourcing 2) interview with said dev 3) news that funding targets have been reached. Reaching step 3 today is Jane 'Gabriel Knight' Jensen, whose new studio Pinkerton Road is working on GK-inspired…

Interview: Jane Jensen’s Pinkerton Road Adventure

After years of working on casual games, Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen is using Kickstarter to help launch her own studio - Pinkerton Road - which recently held a vote amongst contributors to decide its first project. That's now going to be an adventure called Moebius, which you can read about here and add your pledge to to the pot. I caught up with her…

Jane Jensen’s Next Game Is Moebius

And still they come. Jane Jensen's Kickstarter has been going for over a week now, and is steadily bringing in the cash. She's after $300,000, and has almost reached $173,000 with a month to go. It seems pretty likely she'll hit it, but what is it going to be? Well, a cannily released email has finally made me take notice by saying it's a "spiritual…
