Jane Jensen's Moebius gets a haphazard trailer


1:00 PM on 04.03.2013



I'm glad that I refrain from judging a game on its trailer, especially its first one, because the alpha trailer for Jane Jensen's Moebius is... well it's not great. Camp, full of dodgy, forced accents, and poorly put together -- it doesn't engender confidence. 

The randomly thrown together scenes look lovely, though. It's reminiscent of Cognition, which makes sense given that Jensen is working on Moebius with Cognition's creators, Phoenix Online.

The trailer might be a bit rubbish, but the premise remains compelling, especially for fans of Gabriel Knight. The appallingly named Malachi Rector is a history buff with an eidetic memory, and he uses his skill to evaluate antiques. He finds himself hired by a shady government agency to look into the life of a dead woman, and gets sucked into a globe-trotting adventure that raises questions about history, time and space, and destiny. There's an underground fortress, too, and I love those things. 

Moebius is being developed for Mac, PC, iPad and Linux, and a demo is coming out at the end of June.

Here are some screenshots and a trailer for Moebius

I've remarked before about how the adventure game genre didn't necessarily need an injection of life but it's no surprise that Kickstarter definitely attracted big names to return to the genre. Moebius is the return to the a...more

Spontaneous pole dancing in The Wolf Among Us

Former Destructoid Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester left us years ago, but even today his presence is felt on the site. This morning, he linked to what was originally thought to be a hysterical bug in The Wolf Among Us that you'v...more

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...more

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...more
