      I played the first chapter yesterday. I love the story, the music, the dialogues and the atmosphere it creates. What I really dislike is the bad character animation. Malachi walks really unhumanly. It sometimes looks like he has a disability. How could you accept this, with your sense of quality?

      I don't know about anyone else, but ever since I downloaded the Moebius soundtrack a week ago or whenever it was you sent it out to backers, I've been playing it over and over...I think the music is fantastic... Mr. Holmes hit it out of the park on this one. And I love the song over the opening credits. Ok, going to play the game that I just downloaded. And even though I played the beta, and mostly know how it all goes, I must say I'm excited to be hanging out with my old buddy Malachi Rector once again.

      Is anyone having trouble getting their keys for the game? I got the e-mail saying the game was ready for download. I used the link in the e-mail to go to the Phoenix Online web site and entered my e-mail address (the same one associated with my Kickstarter account). It said thank you and told me that I would get an e-mail with a key but I didn't receive anything. I've tried 3 times now and never get an e-mail with a key. Anyone else? Am I doing it wrong?

      I just wanted to say that I really like the opening cutscene. It gives you a sense that the game is actually starting as opposed to how the demos just dropped us in.

      And it's skippable which is even better for replays :)

      Creator Juha Meriruoho on April 2

      Extremely easy to choose the reward. Really a lot more interested in Moebius than Gabriel Knight remake since the original GK1 which I own on cd and through GOG is already perfect with excellent graphics and the best possible voice actors Tim Curry, Mark Hamill, Leah Remini etc.

      Really hoping that we can get a true GK4 in the future. Hope Moebius is great and that it will provide Pinkerton Road Studio the funding to make a new GK game in the future with Tim Curry.

      @momomomo I know what they wrote, and that does not match what is written on the game page, so whats up ?

    26. Missing_small

      Creator Momomomo on March 30

      About Linux support, they wrote that they will release the game on pc/mac first as they need to update the Unity engine to a newer version that support Linux export... and updating your core engine prior to release something usually is a bad move :P

      First release, then update Unity, solve any problems that would come from updating and then release the Linux port! So it seems it coming, but a bit later.

    27. Missing_small

      Creator AKM on March 30

      no linux version available as demo: http://store.postudios.com/products/moebius-empire-rising-pre-order

      http://www.postudios.com/company/games/moebius/ shows PC/Mac and coming soon to IOS and Android

      despite your kickstarter page saying:

      "If we get to $400K: We’ll add a longer, fully cinematic opening sequence / trailer that will blow you away and help us get people lining up to buy the game, setting the tone for this new Pinkerton Road series. PLUS Moebius on LINUX!"

      so as a Linux backer I would like to know what is going on ?

      All appears very unnatural and stiff. First in Cognition, now in Moebius :(

      Creator Marty - GK 20th! on March 29

      I can't speak for anybody else but I was never in this for a T shirt or that other stuff. I'm just glad I played my part on bringing GK back, unknowingly of course since it was a mystery at the time. I must have played GK2 maybe 5 times over the years. Sure it had some bromantic undertones (I'm not gay by the way) but I loved that element of the game all the same, loved the part Gabriel finally gets into the hunting lodge and meets Von glower and the rest. As I said earlier I didn't play the original GK so this is going to be special when I get to play it.

      Matt, there is no lesser version.

      Perry, to my knowledge activation paid jane to make it, why would they not release it?

    33. Missing_small

      Creator T W on March 27

      Did they ever send out the shirts? Supposedly I was getting 2 shirts and a bunch of other stuff and got none of it.

    34. Port.small

      Creator Matt Donatelli on March 27

      So the backers demo is different from the obviously better GOG exclusive? Or are they both the same? Not sure what to think if we get the lesser version.

      When will backers be getting their GOG keys? It's just gone up for pre-order there with a preview/demo. There is a precedent that was set when Resonance was releasing that suggests we might get 'pre-order keys' now rather than waiting for the release.

      I'm not exactly sure what's going on. I've been away for awhile. The only thing I know at the moment is that Moebius is finished and will launch on April 15th. CSG will be getting the game a few days before that time, which is great. I don't know what was going on with Gabriel Knight remake. Were we getting a copy of that game as well and now Activision is blocking the release? What's the deal with that game? What's this IPad kids game Sean speaks about below? Give me all the details. Thanks.

      Hi Marty, We don't get to spend as much time watching the boards and forums as we would like at this stage in the game, but we try:) We know it's been a long haul, but we feel the results in the two games will be worth the wait! In terms of your questions, We want to see how these two games go before we make firm plans for what's next. The good news is there are several options given the worlds of GK, Grey Matter, and now Moebius. Whether another KS would be a part of that is yet to be defined. We would love to do another open house at some point, hopefully to celebrate two very successful games in 2014. We'll keep you posted!

    39. Gray-matter.small

      Creator Marty - GK 20th! on February 25

      Note: I pledged half of the 250 on here and then later added to it through the Pinkerton road website, Greta made sure that I was logged on the 250 level for rewards. Looking forward to some goodies. Can't remember what they are now though!

    40. Gray-matter.small

      Creator Marty - GK 20th! on February 25

      Hi Robert/Jane, so happy to see that you still check this forum out after all this time. really proves to me that you are 100% committed to not just making games, but delivering to your chosen gaming community. I am so happy that moebius is now ready to be shipped and ecstatic that GK sins gets a facelift, having never played the original (but I did play 2 and 3). I backed this project at 250 dollar level but unfortunately could not join you for the open house due to me being in the UK and a bit skint!

      I have 2 questions if I may.... Firstly, do you intend to create a new kickstarter for moebius 2 (with a vote for GM2 etc) or is it going to be funded by the income from this years releases? Secondly is there going to be another open house? I believe they were going to be an annual event.

      As a final bit to my message, I would like to pass on my congratulations on reaching delivery of moebius and wish you massive success after it's release. Long May your success continue.

    41. Robert.small

      Creator Robert Holmes on February 24

      Guys, I'll try and be as helpful and clear as I can on these issues because we really really do want folks to be getting the very most we can deliver for them. First off, There ARE two games, Moebius AND GK. We have, and are investing our own funds to ensure that happens. There are many KS out there that got bigger budgets then we did and are still struggling to produce one game. We are delivering two.
      Secondly, the Linux version IS coming. the reason for the delay is we have to upgrade the Unity engine in order to do Linux, and we don't want to do that before we ship because when you upgrade to a new engine ther are always lots of disruptive issues, which would just delay launch further. Trust me, nobabody wants these games out more than we do, and we are excited to be getting them out!

    42. Officer_b.small

      Creator Tomimt on February 24

      The whole Game Cycle thing was always the weak spot of this Kickstarter and I do think many people didn't pledge because of that. I know it took a lot of time for me to decide if I'd back this or not, as I just didn't trust the model and in an extent I was correct about it.

      At first I did pledge on the 50 dollar level, but in the end I decided to drop down to 16 dollars. I am glad that I didn't drop out completely, as it is nice to see Jane doing adventures again, but after all this time, I can't really say I am that exited about this project any more.

      Just read the GamingOnLinux comments and Jenson has released a statement saying that a non-Linux release has nothing to do with Activision (which makes more sense although backdoor deals with MS are not unheard of it appears not to be the case here...as far as we know).
      However she does make an interest statement which while perhaps legally correct you have to read carefully. She states the kickstarter fund was for Morbius only. Well..not entirely true. It was suggested that CGI would be doing 2 games in their cycle and comments implied (but didn't say directly but many people took as such) that MysteryX was part of the cycle. So what we have is wording suggesting 2 games in the release cycle when there was in fact one.I am disappointed in these kinds of slippery loopholes.MANY People had the same impression and I feel it was done to get more money. Many people would have stuck with the $16 tier and as I won't be running any potentially non-drm free programs on my windows test/gaming box. (It doesn't even see the Internet more than once every 3-4 months :D) It left a feeling of mistrust. While Jensen's isn't the only campaign to suffer from misleading wording of this kind, it sends a clear message to us, and not a very good one.

      @Palindrome Bob Technically an IP Holder can do anything that doesn't violate any existing federal or state laws in the US or violates any laws in foreign countries that are on the distribution list. Short of that, the sky's the limit. The real question is why? I posted a comment with two theories. The most likely being they think it's easier to expose code (or hidden DRM?) in Linux. And perhaps it's true. (As Linux is open source)

    45. Photo2d.small

      Creator The Evolutionary on February 20

      To me that means one of 2 possibilities:

      1. Activision has a deal with MS which blocks it from Linux (It would be a MS move...but hopefully Windows 8 (horrible) with better alternatives (macOS, Linux/Android) will fix that).

      2. Activision wants to push some kind of DRM. Although there are ways of hiding code in Linux builds/binaries, it is more likely to be exposed in that environment.

      Gut feeling, Activision is worried Linux = DRM/code exposure. Why else would they block a platform that they themselves are not putting money into developing for? Comments folks?

    46. Officer_b.small

      Creator Tomimt on January 13

      Depends really from the contract they've made. It all is about the contract and it does look like Activision has the final say on the platform question when it comes to Gabes return.

    47. Kittygaot.small.small

      Creator Palindrome Bob-XSF-I'm in AGL589-AA496 on January 2

      So the question is: can the IP-holder block a release on a certain platform, even after they gave the green light for the remake?

      Does Activision actually one stakes in Gabriel Knight?

      I've just read the the Gabriel Knight remake is being block by Activision for Linux. Is this true?
