Neuro-biologist Dr. David Styles is one of the main characters in the game: Ever since losing his wife in a terrible car accident many years ago, he has become a recluse, leaving his English mansion Dread Hill House only on rare occasions.
One day student and street artist Samantha Everett shows up on his door step unexpectedly, at a time Styles just happens to look for a new assistant. Sam gets the job. Coming from America, she has been travelling most of Europe for the last few years, so she can really use the money. Her first assignment involves finding six volunteers for an experiment planned by Styles at Oxford University.
The experiment begins harmless enough, but soon strange things start happening. Styles is visited by his beloved, but deceased wife. Now it is up to Sam to solve the mysteries of Dread Hill House.
In Gray Matter, the player takes control of Dr. David Styles as well as Samantha Everett as they are trying to unveil the secrets and find the truth.
The Xbox 360 version of Gray Matter will be released simultaneously with the PC version. The game’s control system has been adjusted to fit the console’s requirements – other than that, Gray Matter’s PC and Xbox 360 versions are absolutely identical.
Gray Matter author and adventure game veteran Jane Jensen is happy to see Gray Matter coming to the Xbox 360: “With the Xbox 360 release, Gray Matter can reach a broader audience, especially people who don’t play PC games very often. I’m very excited to see Gray Matter expanding to other platforms” , she said.
