Veteran adventure game creator Jane Jensen has named her new Pinkerton Road studio's first project: a third person point-and-clicker called Moebius.
Apparently it's a metaphysical sci-fi thriller drawing inspiration from both J J Abrams TV show Fringe and Jensen's classic Gabriel Knight series.
You'll step into the shoes of globe-trotting antiquities dealer Malachi Rector who's been hired by a shadowy figure called Amber Dexter to investigate the death of a young woman in Venice.
The situation duly snowballs from there, with a much wider mystery unraveling.
There'll be two game modes - Casual Adventure and True Adventure. The former will offer hints and general hand-holding, while the latter promises to adhere to the adventure games of old and throw the player in at the deep end.
See below for a few pieces of concept art.
Providing Pinkerton Road successfully reaches its stated goal of $300,000 from crowd-funding site Kickstarter in the next month, the game is scheduled for release in March 2013. It's secured $173,563 at the time of writing, with 32 days of fund-raising left. No confirmed platforms have been announced.
Jensen's last release was PC and Xbox 360 adventure Gray Matter, which launched to measured acclaim back in 2011.
