Metaphysical Mystery Tour: Moebius

Shoulders of doom

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 mystery machinima. Although I feel like I've been assailed by awkward animations and hammy voice acting, John's hands-on with the game makes me keen to play it - "It was peculiar to be experiencing all the silly tropes of the genre, but realising I wasn’t fighting against it to have a good time. It was just letting me." Hurrah! Now, prepare to hide from the janky shoulders of doom.

My favourite dialogue is right near the beginning: "We're not looking for her killer, only the facts of her life...document any connections you find to any figure in history".

Yes, thinks Mr Rector, that sounds sensible.
