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.”
