Phoenix Online Studios has released a new teaser page which offers a few images and a description of the events at the beginning of Jane Jensen's upcoming Moebius: Empire Rising. Jensen's first adventure game since 2010's Gray Matter, and the first she has completely overseen since Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned in 1999, lets players step into the shoes of Malachi Rector, an antiquities dealer who becomes embroiled in a mystery when he takes a job from a secretive government agency.
In Moebius: Empire Rising, players will step into the shoes of Malachi Rector, a high-end antiquities dealer with a photographic memory, a genius for history, and an uncanny talent for discerning genuine artifacts from cheap knock-offs. At the request of a secretive government agency, Malachi flies to Venice to determine whether a recently-murdered woman resembles any particular figure in history. Why would the U.S. government offer him $50,000 to perform this odd job? Why does a stranger he meets randomly in the desert seem like someone he's known all his life? And how come every time Malachi lets down his guard, someone tries to kill him?Moebius: Empire Rising will be released on April 15.
In the layered mystery of Moebius: Empire Rising, players will travel the globe with Malachi and his bodyguard, former special forces operative David Walker, to analyze suspects, make historical connections, and piece together clues to uncover a conspiracy the U.S. government and other covert agencies will defend at any cost. A modern adventure game styled in the vein of recent Sherlock Holmes and James Bond thrillers, it merges classic point-and-click puzzle solving with Malachi's unique deductive powers and the sophisticated storytelling Jensen's games are known for.
