Gabriel Knight: 20th Anniversary Edition

Developer Pinkerton Road Studios has officially announced it is developing a remake of the acclaimed 1993 adventure game Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. The remake will be made to celebrate the game’s 20th anniversary. It is planned for a release on mobile phones, PC and Mac sometime in 2014.

The game, first announced on the official Pinkerton Road Studios website, is being made in cooperation with Activision. The company has held the rights to the Gabriel Knight franchise and, after talks with Pinkerton Road Studios, have granted permission for this remake to be made.

Jane Jensen, the creator of Gabriel Knight and one of the co-founders of Pinkerton Road Studios, in an interview with Adventure Gamers, revealed that very little will change very little from the original.

“The story is the same, obviously, and I think the story itself created a lot of that feeling of foreboding and dread that players experienced in the first game,” she stated. “For the art we definitely tried to stay true to the spirit of the original but since we have such better resolution, to work in a lot more New Orleans flavor and voodoo flavor where we could.”

New elements revealed include special features, real-time atmospherics and other minor gameplay additions. The biggest enhancement will be a totally rerecorded voice-over track being made with help from award-winning audio production studio Bay Area Sound.

“We were not able to use the original recordings [from the original game],” Jensen said in her company’s decision to totally rerecord all the voices. “We didn’t even have the original recordings, and the audio in the game itself was very compressed, so it was impossible to just strip that out.”

Developed and published by Sierra Entertainment, then known as Sierra On-Line, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers was first released in 1993. The point-and-click adventure game told the story of Gabriel Knight: a book seller and writer who becomes embroiled in a series of Voodoo Murders in the city of New Orleans whilst writing his latest novel. When he discovers those responsible, Knight must

Upon release, it received great acclaim from critics and players for its highly developed story, high production values and engaging gameplay. It was followed by two more well-received sequels also made by Sierra Entertainment.

The remake will be the latest title in the Gabriel Knight series. The franchise has remained inactive since 1999 with the release of Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned. The sequel was the last to be developed and published by Sierra Entertainment before their bankruptcy which led to the rights to Gabriel Knight being purchased by Activision.
