Classic Point-and-click Adventure ‘Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers’ Getting Remade for Desktop and Tablets in 2014

Gabriel Knight is a trilogy of point-and-click adventure games released by Sierra in the ’90s, and today the series creator Jane Jensen has announced that the first game in the trilogy, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, is getting remade for its 20th anniversary and will arrive on desktop and tablet platforms in 2014. Just for fun, Jensen’s studio Pinkerton Road which is handling the remake has sent along some screens of the new version along with screens of the original for comparison. Check out the new screens on top with their original counterparts below.

I played and enjoyed plenty of adventure games in the ’90s, but never actually played anything from the Gabriel Knight series. It sounds like it has a pretty dedicated following of fans, though, so I’m stoked that a remade version like this 20th anniversary of Sins of the Fathers can give people like myself a second chance to experience a game that might have slipped past them the first time around. For those original fans who are stoked for this remake, hit up the official site where there is an FAQ which might help answer some of your questions, and keep an eye out for this remade adventure to land in mid-2014.
