Another new release today is Jane Jensen's Moebius: Empire Rising, a paranormal adventure game for PC and Mac. It's a "story-driven interactive thriller" and first in an original series from Phoenix Online Publishing.
This point and click adventure is full of puzzles and we play as an antiques dealer and historian, contracted by a secretive agency. What could be fishy about that?
"Moebius is the story of Malachi Rector, a brilliant antiques dealer and historian whose photographic memory and eye for deduction transforms locations and clues into interactive puzzle pieces and historical patterns. A secretive government agency has tapped Malachi for an unusual assignment: fly to Venice and assess whether a recently murdered woman resembles a particular historical figure," reads the press release.
"As Malachi soon learns, this seemingly innocuous request is linked to a powerful paranormal theory the U.S. government will protect at any cost - and the more he discovers, the greater danger he faces."
"Enter David Walker, a former Special Forces operative Malachi randomly encounters in his travels. David's exactly the wingman Malachi needs: calm under pressure, an experienced bodyguard, and good with a gun. In fact, the typically distrustful Malachi can't shake the feeling he's known David all his life. But as Malachi learns more about the Moebius Theory and his unwitting role in history, even their growing bond might not be enough to protect him..."
Moebius: Empire Rising is available through, and other digital stores.
