DescriptionMoebius: Empire Rising is a 3rd-person point-and-click adventure game written by Jane Jensen, creator of Gabriel Knight series and Grey Matter. The game was funded as part of Jensen and Robert Holmes' first Kickstarter campaigned CSG (Community Supported Gaming) cycle with their 2012 founded Pinkerton Road studio. Much of the development was also done by Phoenix Online Studios, known for their Cognition episodic series.
Tagged both "A Metaphysical Thriller" and "Paranormal Mystery Adventure" by the publisher, Moebius follows the globe-trotting escapades of Malachi Rector, an antiques dealer extraordinaire who makes his living appraising historical artefacts for high-paying customers. Joined by ex-military Captain David Livingstone Walker as brawns for Mr. Rector's brain, the duo is drawn into high-stakes political intrigue and paranormal theories regarding the nature of history: why does a secret government agency hire Malachi to compare the facts of life of a recently murdered young woman to other women of history?
Apart from standard point-and-click adventuring of inventory and dialogue puzzles, Moebius offers challenges centred on analysing people, and matching them with known historical persons and facts of their life. Malachi also makes much use of his cell phone in investigating persons and topics, and keeping in touch with his clientele. The game blends two- and three-dimensional graphics, and employs cutscenes with cinematic aspirations.
