It’s been a long time coming but Moebius: Empire Rising is finally about to launch. This was one of multiple games that were financed due to the Pinkerton Road Kickstarter campaign in 2012. Headed by adventure gaming icon Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter), fans funded the project to nearly 150%.
Moebius tells the story of an antiquities dealer named Malichi who gets mixed up in a very strange tale. Murder, conspiracies, and history seem to be favorite themes of Jensen’s which means existing fans of her work will feel right at home. What does that mean for modern adventure gamers? Moebius is a point and click styled adventure game, although Malichi’s deductive powers might lead to unique types of puzzles.
April 15th is when the PC and Mac version of Moebius will launch. Android, iOS, and Linux versions are targeted for later this year.
