Jane Jensen is giving andventure fans a chance to ‘reap what ye sow’ and become part of new studio Pinkerton Road’s agriculturally-inspired business model.
The adventure game writer behind Gabriel Knight recently launched a Kickstarter campaign where contributors can choose the first-fruits of the year’s gaming harvest or, at the fifty dollar level, recieve all of the games the studio produces over the coming year.
She calls the model "community supported gaming", fashioned after community supported agriculture, which provides regular baskets of fresh produce to subscribers.
The campaign target is $300,000, and currently stands at $80,000 with 42 days to go.
Jensen has provided three game concepts to entice potential backers, and those who contribute sixteen dollars or more will get a chance to vote on which they’d like to see first.
Jensen’s husband, composer Robert Holmes, who wrote the music for Grey Matter and Dying for Daylight, will write the score for the games.
Pinkerton Road will be based at the couple’s farm in Lanchester County, PA.
