Gray Matter

 

Atmosphere and a strong story combine to make a memorable adventure game.

Gray Matter’s weaknesses are primarily technical: The character animations seem a little bit stiff, and the motion-comic-style cutscenes are jarring compared to the game’s graphics elsewhere. But this isn’t the kind of game which is played for...

Prosaic puzzles take the edge off this point-and-click adventure's absorbing melodrama.

Enjoyable mystery plot ; Interesting stage magic and parapsychology themes ; Good-looking Oxford environments

Has there been a more feverishly anticipated adventure game than Jane Jensen's Gray Matter? The only one I can think of is Riven in 1997. Myst fans had to endure four long years for their sequel. Jane Jensen fans have had to wait about a dozen years...
