The new adventure game from the creator of Gabriel Knight shows off some new screens at GDC 2014.

From the creator of the Gabriel Knight series, Jane Jensen, Moebius: Empire Rising is a new point-and-click adventure game that’s been developed by Phoenix Online Studios, under the supervision of Jensen herself.

In the game you play Malachi Rector, an upmarket antiquities dealer with a photographic memory, a brilliance for history, and the ability to spot fake artifacts from the real ones. When the U.S. government approaches you to examine whether a recently-murdered woman in Venice resembles any figures in history, you begin to wonder why.

As Malachi you will travel across the world with your bodyguard, David Walker, to uncover the truth of a conspiracy that the U.S. government and other secretive agencies are hell-bent on keeping under wraps.

Take a look at some of the newly released screenshots from GDC (Game Developers Conference) 2014, and the new trailer below.
