Leipzig: Gray Matter
Story and gameplay details have been announced for Gray Matter, the new adventure game from Gabriel Knight designer Jane Jensen. The central protagonist is Dr. David Styles, an English neurobiologist. In the wake of his wife's accidental death, Styles has retreated to the sanctuary of his home at Dread Hill House. The game's events kick off when he receives a visit from an American named Samantha Everett. She's a student (slash street performer) who wants work as a research assistant; as the two begin to work together however, Styles' wife comes to haunt them, and the player will switch between the pair as they plumb the depths of Dread Hill. Styles' puzzles will revolve around the human mind while Everett's will make use of her street magic. The game is in development at Hungarian outfit Tonuzaba Entertainment, and should ship for the PC at the end of 2007.
