Game Introduction – Moebius: Empire Rising

Moebius: Empire Rising is a point-and-click adventure game developed by Pinkerton Road.  In this game, you’ll take on the role of genius Malachi Rector as he explores a mystery centuries in the making. Gamezebo’s walkthrough will provide you with detailed images, tips, information, and hints on how to play your best game.

The Basics

Interacting with the World

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Moebius is a classic point-and-click adventure game with modern updates.  To interact with an object on screen, simply click on it.  If it’s interactive, the action wheel will appear, giving you a variety of options to choose from.  The icons on the action wheel are as follows:
  • 1) Eye / Examine: This will examine the object you clicked on.  Usually Malachi will just look at it and provide a short comment.  Sometimes you’ll enter a close-up of the object.
  • 2) Speech bubble / Talk: This allows you to talk to a character.  It’s used to initiate dialogue.
  • 3) Inventory / Combine items: This action combines your currently active inventory item with the selected object.  For instance, if you were holding a key and used it on a locked object, it would unlock the object (assuming the key fit).

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • 4) Gears / Operate: This “uses” an object directly.  For instance, operating a closed door would open the door.  Operating a computer would turn on the computer and have Malachi try to use it.  Sometimes you’ll enter a close-up of the object.
  • 5) Brain / Analyze: The brain icon is used to analyze people or things.  Usually this will send you to a separate data analysis screen where you will complete the analysis.  Sometimes Malachi will analyze objects directly as soon as you click on this icon.

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • 6) Hand / Take: The hand icon indicates you will pick something up or take it, usually adding it to your inventory.  Sometimes Malachi will only take part of an item: in the above example, he does not take his suitcase, but opens it up and takes his passport when you use the “take” icon.

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Interactive items will display a hot spot identifier containing their name when you scroll over them.  You can also see all hot spots on screen by opening the menu and using the hotspot bull’s-eye or by pressing the spacebar.

 

Moebius: Empire Rising

 

  • You can access Malachi’s inventory by clicking on the box in the upper-right corner of the screen.  If he has an item currently active, it will be visible here.
  • From within the inventory, you can do the following:
  • 1) Eye / Examine: Examine an inventory item.  This provides a short description of the item.
  • 2) Magnifying glass / Close-up: Use this to zoom in on an object.  Can only be used on certain objects, such a photographs.
  • 3) Inventory / Combine items: Use this to combine two items within your inventory.  Items that can be combined will glow softly when a combined item is selected.  This is honestly not used very often, but will be required to solve a few puzzles in the game.
  • Note: Malachi always has his smartphone in his inventory.  This acts as a usable item version of his phone if you need to “use” your phone on something or someone.  The actual phone, which we discuss below, is accessible by a different menu.

 

Smartphone

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Malachi does almost all of his work on his smartphone.  To access his phone, click on the upper-left menu tab and choose the phone icon.  You’ll have a number of options:
  • 1) Phone keypad: This opens the keypad for dialing numbers freestyle.  Hardly used but a normal part of a phone.
  • 2) Contacts: Where Malachi’s contacts are stored.  From this menu, you can either text or call a contact.  You’ll usually know when you need to contact someone as Malachi will mention it directly.
  • 3) Text messages: Keeps a log of all text messages Malachi has sent or received.  Useful for reviewing the story or what you need to do next in certain situations.
  • 4) Notes: The notes section is tied directly to the hint system for Moebius.  When you first enter this area, you’ll be warned that doing so will turn on hints (beating the game without using hints awards an achievement).
  • 5) Projects / Dossiers: This is where Malachi keeps track of his current assignments and their personal dossiers.  As you collect data on the person or object in question, it will be added to their file.  Once you have enough data and can analyze them, you will do so from within their dossier.
  • 6) Internet search: Malachi uses this frequently to gather additional data on subjects or objects of interest.  If you’ve learned something new recently, it might be wise to look it up online.
  • Anytime new data has been added to your phone, a green dot will appear on the smartphone icon.  This can be anything from new data points in a dossier to a new potential internet search.  Whatever area has new info will also have a green dot.

 

Data Analysis

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • One of the recurring puzzles in Moebius is data analysis.  Malachi has three primary types of analysis at his disposal and will automatically use the one that best fits the situation.  The game will provide a short tutorial on how to complete data analysis for each new type, but here’s a brief overview:
  • In-person data analysis: Used when you meet a person and click on them, then select the brain icon.  Malachi is essentially sizing them up.  This can lead to an easier interrogation or simply more information on the character.
  • You’ll be presented with a view of the person and a number of potential data points, indicated by the blue squares with an eye icon on them.  Click on a square to open the potential analysis options.  You’ll be given a description of what Malachi sees, and asked to make your analysis—click on one of the three choices to make your selection.
  • After you’ve analyzed all the available data points (the number varies per person), click “Finish.”  If you got all points correct, the analysis will be complete and you’ll receive a detailed overview of the person at the top of the screen.  If you missed any points, you’ll be asked to make fixes.  There is no punishment for making a mistake and you can correct selections as many times as necessary.

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Project / dossier analysis – person: Used after you’ve collected enough data points on a person that is part of a larger assignment.  You’ll almost always be comparing that person to historical figures to find the closest match.
  • You’ll be presented a list of data points and historical figures that match those points.  You need to narrow down the options to the top three.  Essentially, look at which figure’s picture shows up the fewest number of times and click the minus button on their photograph to remove them.  Do this for all the least-often represented figures until you have just three.  After that, you’ll need to select the one with the most corresponding data and then select “Finish.”

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Project / dossier analysis – object: Used after you’ve collected enough data points on an object that is part of a larger assignment.  You’re usually trying to figure out if the object is authentic or not.
  • As with the in-person analysis, you’ll be given a number of data points on the object that you need to analyze.  Click on these points and you’ll enter a more detailed view of the area.  You’ll also be shown a number of potential matches to that type of object.
  • Scroll through the potential matches until you find the one that fits best.  Usually this is a visual match more than anything else.
  • After you’ve analyzed all the data points, select “Finish” and you should receive the same appraisal that in-person analyses do.  If any points were incorrect, you can go back and fix them.

Tips and Strategies

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Dialogue is essential in Moebius.  You should talk to everyone you meet, and almost always exhaust every dialogue option they have.  Many dialogue options will open additional trees of dialogue that you’ll need to exhaust in order to complete assignments.  When in doubt, just go through all their dialogue options in the order they are listed.
  • You can double-click during a cutscene to skip it.  This is most useful to know for the opening sequence, which plays every time you launch the game.

Moebius: Empire Rising

  • Moebius contains an overall points system similar to that found in classic Sierra games.  The total number of points possible in the game is 676.  Points are awarded for a variety of things, from progressing the plot to picking up items, and are sort of like an in-game achievements system.  When you do something that earns points, the point bar will usually pop up on-screen briefly.  You can beat the game without scoring all 676 points.  This walkthrough will note what actions add points to this total and our total points as we progressed.  The final point total for this walkthrough is 667.
  • There are a few different ways to approach certain sequences in Moebius.  The options aren’t too different and ultimately lead to the same conclusions, but you will usually get different amounts of points for each (or potential achievements).  We’ve noted some of these in the walkthrough below.
  • You can die in Moebius.  It’s fairly rare, and related to specific events, but it might spring upon you unexpectedly.  Be sure to save often.

Chapter 1: Into Your Hands
