After launching her own indie studio, Pinkerton Road, and launching a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2012, Jane Jensen’s new adventure-mystery title Moebius: Empire Rising will be releasing April 15 this year.
I briefly mentioned this game already in the news about Phoenix Online Publishing as they will be handling the duties of publishing the game (but only very briefly). Responsible for working on games like King’s Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned, Gray Matter, and Dying for Daylight, Jane Jensen has made quite a name for herself in the adventure game department. Moebius: Empire Rising will be the first time Jensen has overseen a game’s development since 1999.
Moebius: Empire Rising will place you in the role of Malachi Rector, an antiques dealer who is hired by a government agency to determine if a deceased woman shares any resemblance or identity with a famous historical figure. Aided by bodyguard David Walker, you’ll work to analyze suspects and clues related to this event.
Moebius: Empire Rising is joint-developed by Jensen’s studio, Pinkerton Road, and Phoenix Online Studios. After the game releases on PC and Mac, the game will see a release on Linux, iOS, and Android around the later part of this year.
