Moebius: Empire Rising has an impressive adventure game pedigree thanks to creator Jane Jensen’s genre-defining work at Sierra, and on the Gabriel Knight series specifically. Her commitment to quality writing, characters, and plot in each Gabriel Knight entry opened the point-and-click adventure up to explorations of deeper, more mature subjects that have persevered through modern entries like those from Wadjet Eye. Moebius maintains this focus on writing and story, playing out like a page-turner mystery that also happens to be filled with ingenious puzzles and challenges.

Moebius: Empire Rising hat mich gut unterhalten. Es machte Spaß, etwas andere Rätsel zu lösen, Menschen zu analysieren und Fakten zu sammeln. Über die grafischen Schwächen konnte ich hinwegsehen. Gerade bei einem Adventure gibt es Wichtigeres: eine spannende Story und eine dichte Atmosphäre. Hier bemüht sich Moebius wahrlich und irgendwie möchte man auch immer weiterspielen. Aber so richtig springt der Funke dennoch nicht über. Dafür ist die Charaktere etwas zu flach, die Technik zu veraltet und die Story lässt zu viele Fragen offen. Ob das reicht, um aus Moebius wie geplant eine neue Adventure-Reihe zu etablieren?

While a lot of this package doesn’t quite add up, the story and interplay of characters is quite fun in Moebius: Empire Rising. It feels as if there is a much better game in here somewhere, which will perhaps come about in a sequel one day. For now though Malachi and co are fine company if your looking for a distraction.

Îmi este greu să recomand în acest moment Moebius. Dacă vreți un joc de aventură bun, doar ce-a apărut Gray Matter pe Steam, este tot un joc Jane Jensen, mult mai reușit la fiecare capitol. Când o să îi mai scadă prețul, poate. Sau dacă vreți tare, tare mult o poveste de la creatoarea lui Gabriel Knight. Nu e o poveste rea, doar că nu prea sare în evidență.

The recipe for a good adventure game is there, but the measurements are all wrong. Rector is too flawed, the puzzles are too easy, the metaphysical elements get too ridiculous are not well explained - everything is just off. Had I not known that this was the work of Jane Jensen, I honestly wouldn’t have believed it. And when there are so many adventure games coming out during this renaissance, it’s hard to see why anyone would choose this over, say, The Walking Dead or one of Daedalic’s traditional, bloody hard adventure games.

Народная поддержка и неограниченная творческая свобода породили монстра. Будь Moebius: Empire Rising квестом от безвестных новичков, мы бы хмыкнули презрительно и успокоились. Но осознание того, что это убожество вышло из-под пера заслуженного ветерана индустрии, наполняет душу первобытным ужасом.

I imagine there will be mostly mixed reactions to the game, especially the phoned in ending, but my personal experience as a history and sci-fi fan was that the game was enjoyable and my interest has been piqued for potential future installments of the series.
