If you played PC games in the 1990s, chances are that you at least sampled a few titles in the point ‘n click genre. And one of the top such clicker games back then that would leave you scratching your head would be Gabriel Knight. And 20 years after the first game arrived, comes news that a remake of the classic Sins of the father is on the way.
Planned as a mid-2014 digital download, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the father is getting rebuilt from scratch, and will boast sharper visuals and audio. “I’m thrilled to be back at work on Gabriel Knight and to bring this classic game to a new generation of players,” said series creator Jane Jensen to VG247.
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.
Jensen’s studio, Pinkerton Road, has been working on the game for over a year now, and say that it will also have a re-mastered soundtrack from original game maestro Robert Holmes. I’m kind of amped for this. I loved the original games, and this is the kind of remake that I dig seeing.
