Gabriel Knight creator launches Kickstarter
Reap the rewards of funding a studio for a year.
Game designer Jane Jensen who is best known for her work on the Gabriel Knight adventure game series and Gray Matter has started a Kickstarter campaign seeking $300,000. Unlike the regular campaigns that start on the site, Jensen is attempting to fund a studio called Pinkerton Road for a year. The idea is termed Community Supported Gaming and is similar to Community Supported Agriculture schemes. Backers will subscribe to the studio for the year and get access to all games released.

If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, backers will get an original adventure title on PC in March 2013 and Lola and Lucy’s Big Adventure (a kid’s e-book/game written by Jane) which will be released this summer. If $600,000 or more is raised, backers will also get a second adventure title due in June 2013.

Those who pledge $16 or more will be eligible to vote for the first project undertaken. The concepts battling it out are Gray Matter 2, Moebius and Anglophile Adventure. Voting will commence on May 1st. As with all Kickstarter campaigns there are a range of levels with differing awards. They range from access to the games and updates up to lunch with Jensen and an in-game character.

For more information on the concepts, the idea of Community Supported Gaming or to donate to the project, visit Pinkerton Road’s official Kickstarter page.
