The only site so far is in German (but it's easily navigable).

Cool... thank you!

I hope they put up a new trailer soon. The one on display looks more like a tech demo to showcase movement and perspectives, albeit with some nice backgrounds and music.

Hopefully, if there is a second trailer, it'll be a more in-depth preview of the game.

Of course I have but it'd be interesting to see how it all works out in a game.

People walk weird in that game. Have you ever seen someone walk up or down the stairs like that?

Oh yeah! They all look like they're scrambling for their dear life. I hope their movement patterns have been tweaked, though. It looks so weird!

Normally you bend forward a bit when you walk, and when you walk the stairs you bend a bit more, but these people stay straight upright. That makes it look very weird.

Anyone knows if it will be released in the next couple of months or is it delayed?

I'm sure that with Jane Jenson's reputation for storytelling there'll be a lot more to it than that.

I wouldnt be sure about that ,what she have done about adventures left in past century like Tim Schafer and his Psychonauts trivia, they used to be great can only give credits for that.

Well, we can only try to hope that Gray Matter will be good 'cos who knows? Lots of things can go right or wrong in a game though I hope she learnt from GK3.

Well, since she didn't design the mustache puzzle I don't think there's anything she had to learn.

What, woman does things? No way!!
Really, how unimaginative.
I think the story outline sounds promising.
I don't think we know enough to be able to make a judgement, though.

Oooh... okay cool.

Btw, I was looking at the screenshots and was wondering about this: It says the background screens are 2d but they look 3dish. Does this mean the screens were first rendered in 3D and then converted to 2D format?

And hopefully, the bg screens won't be totally static like many more recent adventure games.
