Jane Jensen’s next project is Moebius

Tuesday, 17th April 2012 01:14 GMT By Brenna Hillier

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.

    Interesting to see if Jane Jensen protagonist fits the sexist criteria just as it did in Gray Matter. Someone should to her and let her know that as a woman, she shouldn’t be creating impossibly curvy females in videogames.

    Or something. :)
