Moebius: Empire Rising is the first in an all-new series of paranormal mystery adventures from award-winning game designer Jane Jensen, creator of the bestselling Gabriel Knight series and Gray Matter. Players will step into the shoes of Malachi Rector, a brilliant antiques dealer and historian whose photographic memory and eye for deduction transforms locations and clues into interactive puzzle pieces and historical patterns to put together. By bringing shocking insights and evidence together, players will learn a startling truth about space and time in this metaphysical thriller: Our actions are but a single thread in a larger pattern of life and history, and it’s up to you to stop others from pulling their strings.

Return to the glory days of role-playing and adventure in Quest for Infamy,a humor-filled fantasy epic styled in the vein of classic PC RPGs, where you play the charming villain. Blending turn-based combat and spell-casting with puzzle solving and adventure, players can choose from three character classes-brigand (strength), rogue (stealth), or sorcerer (magic), each with unique storylines and adventures-in one of the largest retro role-playing experiences ever. Adventurers are invited to explore a world of hand-drawn wonder, as they wind their way through trap-infested dungeons, battle slavering beasts with swords or custom-made spells, and lie, cheat and steal their way to infamy.

Lovecraft.” The Last Door: Collector’s Edition features exclusive new scenes and puzzles, enhanced graphics, unlockable bonuses, and remastered sound in a special must-see edition of the popular point-and-click adventure. Exploring ancient manors, decaying tenements and twisting underground warrens with lamp and magnifying glass, four terrifying episodes of occult and otherworldly horror invite you to investigate Victorian England’s deepest, darkest secrets.
