That's what I hear.Im really looking forward to playing this again. The first time I played was on floppies and there were no voice overs so that will make quite a difference for me I think. Anyway I loved the game, its one of my all time favorites. smile

So, it doesn't bother anyone that Gabe looks so sweet and girlish and 'flat' in the remake?
Quite frankly, there's something wrong with the way his head is constructed, as if it were done by someone who isn't really very good at anatomy.
Take a look at the original portrait and the new one side by side.

It also interested me that there are no voices in that very brief trailer.
The developers must be expecting some blow back from the new voices; I can't think of another reason not to at least let us hear Gabe.

I'm always too critical, you may think, but I thoroughly enjoyed GK1 with it's messy, masculine, self-absorbed Gabe and I didn't and don't understand the need for a remake of an excellent game.
GK4 would be more to the point.

I know it's very unlikely to happen since Tim Shafer isn't the type, IMO, to go back and fix what doesn't need fixing or replace arguably the best ensemble voice acting ever, but if a "modern" version of Grim Fandango ever comes out you really will hear some squawking from me. grin

Tim Curry had a stroke almost 2 years ago. I don't know if he'll be up to voicing this one.

Tim Curry can speak fine. He is having some difficulty moving around, but his voice and health is good.

You can check out his Official website here.

No, per Jane Jensen, it was not cost effective to get the original actors and they are using Bay Area Sound as the voice studio. You will be hearing familiar voices from many Tell Tale games.

Though Im a fan of Tim Curry, Im glad he wont be voicing this game. His cajun accent in GK3 was awful. And I think many others felt the same way.

Just my opinion.

I personally thought the screen shots looked good. smile

Wow, this game looks beautiful! happydance

As for the debate about Gabriel, I'm perfectly fine with his look and with him having a new voice. Plus, I believe they are using the same studio that TellTale uses, and they have fantastic voice actors. (I also have this dream about Melissa Hutchinson as Grace, though I know that's most likely not going to happen. lol) While I think Tim Curry is a great actor, I was never crazy about him as Gabriel. He seemed too obvious in his nature to me, more creepy and than sexy, and I wondered what it was that Malia saw in him. (I realize I'm probably in the minority on this. wink) The only time I was really attracted to Gabriel was in The Beast Within, and even then, I found Von Glower a lot more alluring and intriguing. Even so, I find Gabriel Knight to be one of the best written characters in adventure gaming, and a remake is not going to change that.

I also agree that the game didn't need a remake. In fact, I was hoping that Mystery Game X was a new Jane Jensen game, but now that I've seen the screenshots and heard about additional puzzles being added, I'm looking forward to this one even more than Moebius. thumbsup

Hi Venus, I posted a few posts above you about the voice actors. You will indeed be hearing many of the same voices as in the Tell Tale games.

Ana, clearly I didn't read that post thoroughly enough. Sorry about that.slapforehead It still seems pretty unlikely that they'll use their most famous voice actress for Grace, but I can still hope. grin In any case, I have no worries about the voice acting if they're using Bay Area Sound. thumbsup

The trailer looks really good. I got the email about the trailer as well and it also included a really good trailer for Mobius which is also good.

I'll definitely be picking up a copy. I still have the original game in its twin triangular box.

I do think GK1 needed a remake, because I sat a few times trying to play it, and every time I stopped because somehow I could not get into such an old game. And yet, I am one of the greatest fans of GK2 and especially 3, and I loved Tim Curry in that last one.
