In a time when adventure games relied on high fantasy, science fiction and humor, Gabriel knight took a multitude of risks. It dealt with religion, dipped in one of the most controversial periods in western history and did not shy away from mature themes. It was a brave entry in a medium that at the time was still often viewed as childish and immature.

With the upcoming launch of the 20th Anniversary Edition, we asked several prominent indie developers and adventure gaming legends their experiences with the Gabriel Knight franchise.

We are giving away a boxed copy of the original Gabriel Knight signed by Jane Jensen.

When it comes to video game sidekicks, few are as memorable as Grace Nakimura. Her role expanded throughout the Gabriel Knight trilogy, taking her from being little more than a source of information in the first game to practically an equal by the end of the third title.

In 20 years much has changed technological-wise. We take a look at the visual updates and improvements in the upcoming 20th Anniversary Edition of Gabriel Knight.


October 1, 2014 - Gabriel Knight: The Game Changer

Considered as a break from past Sierra games, Gabriel Knight – Sins of the Fathers’ plot centered around a novelist researching on voodoo related material for his new book. Taking place in then-present day New Orleans allowed Jane Jensen to weave a setting with a strong backstory and personality. Voodoo in New Orleans is closely tied to African religions, Christianity and slave trading – topics which even to this day most media tend to shy away from.
