The acclaimed Gabriel Knight adventure series is set to return with a brand new twentieth anniversary remake of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. 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.
Twenty years later, the charismatic Schattenjäger is making a welcome comeback thanks to the work of Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen’s indie development studio, Pinkerton Road LLC, which licensed the Gabriel Knight IP from Activision Publishing, Inc.. The revamped Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers will feature the same mature storyline and puzzle solving as the 1993 version, with research assistant Grace Nakimura, the inept Detective Mosely, and the local colour of New Orleans supporting Gabriel’s paranormal investigation.
The Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th anniversary edition is planned for a mid-2014 release as a digital download for PC, Mac, iPad, and Android. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
