It matters a lot!
The human brain. So close, and yet so distant – our greatest collective mystery. Through neurology we study the gray matter firing away underneath our skulls. The billions of neurons, relentless, setting off electrical impulses to travel an endless network of the human nervous system; dictating, in its apparent chaos, our every single sensation. It’s a biological process so sophisticated, that it has earned the right to call itself “I”. In the endeavor to unravel our own brains, we’re fascinated with that which fools us: the supernatural, memories, sleight of hand. Our perception of reality often inconsistent with the factual, or the rational. Perhaps it’s this weakness that holds our key to understanding the human condition. Perhaps it is not a weakness at all?
Gray Matter tells the story of Samantha Everett, a young female illusionist searching for her lucky break on a road-trip through europe. When mechanical failure brings her to a halt in the middle of nowhere, she crosses paths with the mysterious and troubled neuro-biologist Professor David Styles. He quickly draws Sam into his world of the inexplicable and the terrifying, where scientific research dabbles in the supernatural. The game is a classical point and click adventure by all accounts. You’ll explore the authentic, beautifully hand drawn streets and interiors of modern London and Oxford, accompanied by an elegant, haunting soundtrack. See through the eyes of Sam and Professor Styles as your progress through logical, masterfully crafted puzzles that will never have you reaching for a walkthrough. Sam’s unique skill set as a magician introduces an original twist on the gameplay as well, allowing you to carefully plan, then execute your illusions and get precisely what you need… out of anyone.
