If we have some extra buffer in the funding, we would love to provide our games in these languages and others. We know a lot of Jane's GK fans are European and we want to them to be a part of this new studio.
UPDATE: We have an offer from Words of Magic, the translator of Gray Matter, to do French subtitles for us to support the campaign, so we will definitely have a French subtitled version. Thank you, Thierry!
UPDATE #2: We have also received offers for subtitles written in Portuguese and Spanish. Thank you very much Monica, Goncalo and Josue!
UPDATE #3: We have an offer from Paolo at indies4indies to provide Italian subtitles for this project. Thank you very much Paolo!Last updated:
Yes, there will definitely be a Mac version.Last updated:
If we get at least $400K there will be a Linux version.Last updated:
The downloadable game of Moebius will be offered DRM free.Last updated:
Although Jane is involved with this series as a story consultant, Cognition is being produced by Phoenix Online and it is not a Pinkerton Road release. So it will not be included in our CSG season.Last updated:
Our goals for the studio are really very simple! a) to make the games we're passionate about making, b) to have control over the production and quality so we are proud of the final outcome, c) to have a direct connection to our players and d) to retain the IP so that we can make more games in the series that you, the fans,decide you really like. Doesn't that sound like the way things ought to be?Last updated:
A small, core team, including Jane and Robert, will be located at the Pinkerton Road HQ in Lancaster County, PA. We have two excellent external development teams lined up to do the production work, teams Jane has worked with to ship great games in the past.Last updated:
A 3rd person adventure game like the one we're planning would normally cost at least twice that. But we are putting in some funding as well, and the team is taking less up front in exchange for rev share. So this project already has committed believers behind it. The last piece we need is you!Last updated:
Yes, we will also sell the games in the regular channels, but our CSG members will get them before any other release - plus you'll get all of the exclusive bonuses that go along with being a CSG member.Last updated:
We would love to do Gabriel Knight in the near future. Because that IP does not belong to us, it's not a given. Having our own studio, and successfully shipping a title, will make obtaining the rights more likely than ever before.Last updated:
We needed help managing our CSG members. Can you imagine sending builds to 10,000+ different emails? Kickstarter manages all that for us, so we can easily run a campaign drive and post updates as often as we like.
Since we made that decision, a lot of kickstarter campaigns for other games have launched. We considered waiting, but in all honesty, we don't think the tide of Kickstarter projects is going to abate anytime soon.
It's like this – publishers have been the bouncer at the club door for a long time, deciding who got let in and who did not. Now, with crowd-funding, it’s as if someone's opened a back door. It’s no surprise that there’s a rush of people who want to go through it. Support the projects you want to see happen and wish the rest good luck. And let’s thank our lucky stars there’s a new way to get games financed and broaden the spectrum of what this industry creates!Last updated:
"Pinkerton Road es el nuevo estudio creado por Jane Jensen y Robert Holmes. Se centrará en la creación de aventuras gráficas con elaborados guiones, un cuidado arte conceptual y un sistema de juego sencillo e intuitivo. El estudio usará el (CSG) 'Comunidad de apoyo al Juego' para financiar y desarrollar sus juegos.
Jane es la creadora de la saga Gabriel Knight, el reciente Gray Matter entre otros y varias novelas entre las cuales destacamos "La Ecuación de Dante". Robert Holmes, el marido de Jane, financió Sins of the Fathers y ha escrito la música de muchos de sus juegos, como compositor y ahora miembro de la banda Scarlet Furies.
Cualquier persona puede participar en este proyecto a partir de 1 dolar. A mayor donación, mas extras recibiréis como agradecimiento, como descargas, camisetas y conciertos.
¡No dejes pasar esta oportunidad para que el género renazca!"Last updated:
About timing on the the shipments:
-- Our CSG members will get the games before they go to retail, so naturally we will be anxious to get them to you. If you are at a tier that gets physical copies of the games, you will get each game before it is about to release.
-- "Everything else" physical (T-shirts, sketches etc) we will try to mail at once time to save on shipping. That package will go out as soon as we can manage it after kickstarter has wrapped up (which may still be 1-2 months to get all the goodies manufactured, etc)Last updated:
At the $100 tier you get: Moebius in a 'big box' (unsigned) and Mystery Game X on DVD/jewel case.
At the $200 tier you get Moebius in a 'big box' and Mystery Game X in a retail box, both signed by Bob and myself.
The $200 tier at the right currently says a 'big box of all this seasons games'. That description was written at the time this campaign started, before we even had an idea there would be a Mystery Game X. You cannot modify the text on reward tiers in kickstarter.
At that time we said if we reach $300K in funding, we will do ONE game this season. If we reach $600K we will do TWO games this season. So the way things stand ($350K), you would only have gotten ONE big box game, Moebius.
The publishing deal for Mystery Game X came later. This kickstarter is not funding that game, a publisher is funding it. I managed to get some free units for my CSG members. But that will not include a big box edition. I don't have final say over what their retail box looks like, nor do I have the right do to my own "big box" edition. However, I have done my best to get my members the retail box, which we will sign for you.
