Excellent news for fans of point-and-click adventure games: , the newest game series from Jane Jensen, creator of the popular PC adventure game series, will see its first installment show up in playable form at the Leipzig Games Convention later this week.  Jensen describes Gray Matter as a “paranormal/investigative series…updated to be more unique and cutting-edge, dealing with Matrix-like questions about the nature of reality… the power and potential of the human mind.”

Of special note is Jensen’s decision to design the game in 2D.  She explains, “For an adventure game, you want atmosphere. Moving the camera is not only unnecessary, but [also] a real detriment for many people. Studies have shown that women and older people don’t like moving a camera in 3D, and these demographics are an important part of our audience.”

Perhaps the pure adventure game isn’t quite dead.  The first chapter of Gray Matter, currently subtitled Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made Of, is scheduled for a first quarter 2008 release, courtesy of publisher dtp.
