Viva Media has announced it’s acquisition of Gray Matter, and is working with dtp Entertainment to bring the long-awaited title to North American shores.

Gray Matter, as you already know, is the first adventure game to be released by author Jane Jensen since Gabriel Knight 3 hit in 1999.

The story follows neurobiologist Dr David Styles, who, after losing his wife in an accident, has become a recluse, and rarely leaves his English estate, Dread Hill House.

American student and part-time street performer Samantha Everett shows up at his doorstep, becomes his assistant, and must find six test subjects at Oxford for one of Styles’s experiments.

Eerie, supernatural incidents soon follow, as players control both Styles and Everett as they uncover secrets and find out the truth.

Gray Matter is scheduled to be released in North America in February both online and through retail outlets for $29.99. There’s a demo available on the game’s official website.

  • Intel Pentium IV 1.6 GHz processor or similar
  • 512 GB of RAM
  • Windows XP/1Gb of RAM WindowsVista/ Windows 7

    I’ve already played and completed it. It started poorly, got really good, and then ended a bit flat. Still, well worth playing.

    Yeah,the beginning with the rabbit was kind of nonsense i guess. But when you get control over the guy, i started to enjoy it alot. All the puzzels made sense too. That’s my main complaint about adventure games, alot of those puzzles and item combinations never really make sense.

    I’ll buy this. The few reviews i read spoke about a 10 to 15 hours game length and overall just very good.

    The guy was great. I just hated the female protagonist. In essence, her reasons for hoodwinking everybody into potentially dangerous brain tests were pretty inexcusable.
