Viva Media (the US-based publisher that brought S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat stateside) has signed a deal with dtp Interactive to release Jane Jensen’s Gray Matter in North America. It is scheduled for both an online and retail release in February.
Some of Europe will also be seeing the game at roughly the same time but Germany, Austria and Switzerland have been playing Gray Matter since mid-November! Note that this is the PC release being talked about. The promised Xbox 360 version is seemingly nowhere to be seen.

Releases for other countries are still not known but hopefully it’s not too far away. In the meantime, there is a demo, which is tucked away in our file archive, that takes you through the entire tutorial and all of chapter three!
About Gray Matter:
Gray Matter is the first adventure game by renowned author Jane Jensen since the release of Gabriel Knight 3: the story mixes eerie goings-on with supernatural events in best Jensen-style. Neurobiologist Dr. David Styles is one of the game’s central characters: since losing his wife in a horrible accident some several years ago, he has become a recluse, seldom leaving Dread Hill House, his English country estate.
When student and part-time street performer Samantha Everett shows up at his doorstep, she unexpectedly becomes his assistant. Hailing from America, she has been traveling through most of Europe the last couple years. Her first task: finding six test subjects at Oxford University for one of Styles experiments. The experiment starts off innocently enough, but then inexplicable incidents start mounting.
Players control both Dr. David Styles and Samantha Everett in their bid to uncover the secrets and find out the truth. Gray Matter tackles questions concerning the nature of reality and the power of the human mind in constructing the world we take for granted.
