Phoenix Online to develop Moebius!
« on: November 20, 2012, 03:05:55 AM »
The cat's out of the bag, I'm very happy to announce that Phoenix Online will be developing Jane Jensen's next masterpiece, Moebius!

We've been working on the title for a few months now, and things are coming together really nicely.

For a sneak peak, take a look at the official news from our site here!

W00t!

LOL, god willing, no!

This has been REALLY exciting to work on, and the game is shaping up really well. Getting to see a Jane Jensen game come together is exciting enough, but to be part of that process is even better! I think people will really enjoy this one :)

Cool! I knew you were doing some work on it, but I didn't know you were actually developing it. It sounds intriguing. Will it be episodic?

I was wondering when Phoenix would formally announce this. Very cool news. :)

edit - removed my second comment since it's just speculation, and we should talk only about Moebius here. Either way the test footage from Sunday looked really great. Happy for all involved.

Congratulations to all the Phoenix Online crew on this terrific assignment and collaboration!

Quite a few CSG backers -- myself included -- were under the impression that Signus Labs was the development team for Moebius, as Jane's videos a few months back led us to believe. However, if the quality of Cognition in any indication, I am more than happy to learn that you guys are making the game instead.

Again, congratulations! :)

Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

This is absolutely a perfect fit - and this is just good news for the backers of the project and the fans in general.  PoS has proven themselves to be a competent and professional production team, as well as being a bunch of talented and great peeps.  Honestly, I really feel great about having you helm the production of Moebius - this really ensures that the game will not only be completed,  but will be of the quality people want and expect out of adventure games these days.

Big kudos to you guys.  Proud of the success that has come from all your hard work.

Tribe: that turtle is the best! I love it!

Bt: Aww, thank you! We are super psyched about it, obviously. :)

Congrats!  You guys have come a long way with your dreams. Cognition is getting some great reviews, so I'm sure whatever you do with jane will be great as well.  Keep it up, looks like adventure games are having a resurge

Congrats!  I think that you are gaining a lot of fans.  What does this mean for TSL episode 5?  Will it be further delayed, or not effected by the Moebius project?

It'll stay right on track with its current schedule. It's got a fabulous team working on it but it's still primarily a team of volunteers giving freely of their own time. It's coming together quite nicely and looks really incredible in the new engine, I think everyone is really going to love it.
