Without the voice of Tim Curry, it will be like a "different" game for me and not a "re-vamp" but I am still very much looking forward to it rah

Time Curry had a stroke. As much as we'd like time to stand still somehow it doesn't and some of our favorites are no longer available to entertain us.

Well, maybe taking the voices from a game is different from taking them from an ancient record, I don't know.
But I'm listening right now to the Sextet from Lucia di Lammermoor with Enrico Caruso and Amelita Galli-Curci.
It was recorded sometime around 1920 and was remastered.
You can tell from the orchestra that it's old but the voices are beautiful.

Just saying.

Gil.

I love to see old games come back renewed. I never got to play the Gabriel Knight series so I am really looking forward to it.

I think remaking more of the old games and just up grading the graphics would be fantastic! Games like the Myst series and the first few Tomb Raider games would be wonderful to replay with updated graphics while keeping the rest of the game environment and story in tact.
Congrats and Good Luck Jane Jensen! I'm looking forward to playing!

Yes, I was very sorry to hear that Tim Curry had suffered a stroke, oldman. It was reported on our UK news at the time frown

Tim Curry is still working -- he has completed several projects since the stroke in July 2012. smile He's very much alive and well.

What about using the voice of Dean Erickson, who was Gabriel in GK2? The character sketch for Gabriel for the remake certainly resembles him. From his webpage at
http://deanerickson.com/
it looks like he's not in acting any more. But who knows, he might enjoy reprising his role as Gabriel.

It sounds like Tim Curry is recovering, but maybe not enough to do the voice acting yet. I hope he makes a full recovery. I'd assumed he was too much in demand to do Gabriel, though that may not be the reason.

Edit -- That's good news, Rushes.

Laurie, they are saying that they hope to see the release of this game somewhere around the middle of next year. wave
