Noted game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight
) revealed the first project her new Pinkerton Road studio
will take on, after fans who pledged money to her Kickstarter voted on the title.
The Sierra On-Line veteran plans to create several games if her studio raises at least $300,000 on Kickstarter (she's so far received $172,000 in pledges). The first PC game her studio will create is Moebius
, a point and click, third-person adventure with a 2D graphic novel look.
Jensen describes it as a metaphysical sci-fi thriller in the vein of TV series Fringe, her own novel Dante's Equation, and the Gabriel Knight
series. If her Kickstarter campaign
reaches its $300,000 goal, she will release Moebius
in March 2013.
If Pinkerton Road raises over $600,000, it will begin working on a second adventure title this year -- possibly one of the other two concepts that backers voted on, Gray Matter II
or Anglophile Adventures
