Jane Jensen about Gabriel Knight:
“I’m thrilled to be back at work on Gabriel Knight and to bring this classic game to a new generation of players,” says Jensen. “It’s a designer’s dream to be able to enhance the game and bring in more New Orleans flavor than technical limitations allowed us to in 1993. It’s going to look and feel like a brand new title. But never fear, 100% of the original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is here. I hope both existing fans and new players will love it.”
In 1993, a rash of ritual voodoo murders took place in the swamps and back alleys of New Orleans. With local police baffled, only one man was equipped to solve the case: Gabriel Knight, owner of a French Quarter bookstore, struggling novelist, and an unwitting descendent in a long line of shadow-hunting Schattenjägers. Armed with little more than a sacred dagger and talisman, his N’awlins drawl, and his own irresistible brand of charm, Gabriel Knight quickly became a gaming sensation when Sierra On-Line released his first adventure, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers ®, in December 1993.
Twenty years later, the charismatic shadow hunter is making a welcome comeback thanks to the work of Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen’s development studio, Pinkerton Road LLC, which licensed the Gabriel Knight IP from Activision Publishing, Inc.
The Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers-20th anniversary edition is planned as a digital download for PC, Mac®, iPad®, and Android™. The game is being reconstructed from scratch with all new retina display quality visuals and voice recording,in a development process overseen by
