Jane Jensen Kickstarter Will Produce 2 Adventures

Jane Jensen's Moebius and Pinkerton Road Studio Kickstarter is now loaded with even more stuff.

The best news is that the Pinkerton Road Kickstarter will be producing two new adventures, rather than just one. The second game is only called Mystery Game X at this point, but it will be included as part of this kickstarter.

We know that the first game selected from a list of proposal by Kickstarter backers will be Moebius. The story of the game is described on the kickstarter as:

Malachi Rector is an antiquities dealer who hunts down artifacts all over the world. After his upscale Manhattan store is destroyed in a fire, he's hired by billionaire Amble Dexter to investigate a series of events and document them in his meticulous way.

The first event is the death of a young woman in Venice. She was found hanging from a bridge. As Rector investigates her life, compiling facts for his dossier, he realizes that the beautiful and talented young woman -- and the interrupted path of her life -- had great hidden significance. It appears that Amble Dexter and his associates are playing with the fabric of life in a way Rector never imagined was possible. Even he, Rector himself, is part of a larger pattern. He must figure out who is doing what, and whether their intentions are for good or ill, before he can decide if he will play his pre-scripted role -- or try to change the outcome. This is a metaphysical thriller ala Dante’s Equation and Gabriel Knight.

The backer bonuses have been increased as well. The $200 tier still gets a big box release for the games made by Pinkerton Road, but the big box of Moebius has also been added to the $100 tier. In addition, the $100 tier also will get a high-res digital art print of this year's art, signed by Jane and Robert.

There is also new concept art for Moebius, which looks pretty impressive:

If you are interested in these games, there's still eight days left to back Jane Jensen's Moebius and Pinkerton Road Studio Kickstarter
