Jane Jensen’s next project is Moebius

Pinkerton Road has announced its first project – Moebius, a metaphysical sci-fi thriller adventures expected in March 2013.

Moebius was chosen from among other pitches by Kickstarter backers of Jane Jensen’s new, crowd-funded studio, winning 61% of the vote. It’s a point and click adventure played from third-person perspective, and will sport Casual and True Adventure modes.

The game’s protagonist is one Malachi Rector, an antiquities dealer who travels the world finding and researching artifacts, using a knack for “sensing the soul” of an object. After disaster strikes, burning down his manhattan base of operations, Rector signs on with millionaire Amber Dexter to investigate a mysterious sequence of events.

“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,” the pitch informs us.

Pinkerton name dropped a couple of other Jensen projects to set the tone – her novel Dante’s Equation and best-known series, Gabriel Knight – as well as TV series Fringe.

Should Pinkerton Road reach $300,000 in funding it will endeavour to release Moebius in March 2013. Check out Jensen announcing the winner below, as well as a couple of concept art pieces.
