Pinkerton Road Studio today announced that the highly-anticipated Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition, a modern remake of one of Sierra ‘s greatest adventure games of all-time, is expected to be available for purchase on PC and Mac on October 15th.
As the press release reads, this high-definition update of the adventure game classic Gabriel Knight adds brand new puzzles and scenes, gorgeous new high-res backgrounds, a remastered soundtrack, and more New Orleans flavor to the beloved original story, plus exclusive new behind-the-scenes material including original concept sketches, articles and brand new audio interviews with Jane Jensen and members of the original Sierra development team to provide a more complete view on the Gabriel Knight series than has ever been available before.
Preorders are now available at Steam, GOG.com, the Phoenix Online Store and more at 15% off the $19.99 retail price, and include the pre-order exclusive soundtrack by Robert Holmes.
In anticipation of the release, starting on October 6th, Pinkerton and Phoenix will be running a “10 Days of Gabriel Knight” countdown with a host of new assets releasing daily, including screenshots, music downloads, cutscenes from the game, and a brand new Gabriel Knight short story by Jane Jensen—the first new addition to the official Gabriel Knight canon since 1998.
Jane Jensen, creator of the series, said:
“It’s been a dream to be able to work on Gabriel Knight again, and I’m so exciting to bring it to a new audience. I think it looks amazing and it has all the classic gameplay.”
Cesar Bittar, CEO of Phoenix Online and producer of the project, added:
“Gabriel Knight is the reason why I became a developer. It was a groundbreaking game that showed the power of Jane Jensen’s storytelling.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
