• magisterrex Retro Games

    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

ReBlog: Jane Jensen Returns with Cognition

Anyone remotely familiar with the beautifully crafted Gabriel Knight series recognizes the name Jane Jensen when they see it, and should get a small spasm of joy at the thought of her involvement in a new gaming venture.  The game stars Erica Reed, an investigator with a supernatural ability to “read” objects to “see” where they’ve been, who handled them, and what happened.  She’s chasing down four serial killers, The Hangman, The Wise Monkey, The Cain Killer, and The Oracle.  Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller will be released in episodic format, which Sam ‘n’ Max and Tales of Monkey Island have recently showed is a good choice for an adventure game franchise.  And as if the involvement of Jane Jensen is not enough, so too are artist Romano Molenaar (X-Men, among other work) and Phoenix Online, the developers of the King’s Quest homage, The Silver Lining!

The project is currently looking for funding through a Kickstarter campaign.  Give them a visit, and if you can afford it, a few dollars, too.

As ever, thanks to Gnome for the information that I’m sharing with you!
