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 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.

Rmt, Thorsgoats feels the same way, and sadly GK1 was also the only game he didn't care for, though I did "force" him to finish the whole thing so he would know the origin story before playing the other two. lol He also felt the same way I did about Tim Curry in GK1, though he liked him better in the third game. smile Needless to say, he is very interested in the remake and thinks it looks great.

Mad, don't get me wrong, I do think he did a great job, and I think he's a terrific actor in general. It just wasn't how I personally envisioned Gabriel. And no need to reiterate, as I think your opinion is the common one, and Thorsgoats and I are the "freaks." wink I know most people really loved him in that role, and I have no desire to take that away from anyone.

I suppose I just think of games more like plays than movies, if that makes any sense. In general, I think more than one actor can play a role very well, and the writing is what matters most. There are exceptions for me - Sarah Hamilton as April Ryan, Melissa Hutchinson as Clementine, Dominic Armato as Guybrush Threepwood - so I see how many people could be very attached to Tim Curry as Gabriel. I just think there are other actors who could also pull the role off well, and I'm not overly concerned about them using different actors, knowing that they've chosen a great studio to work with. smile

When I first played GK3, I must admit I was dismayed that Dean Erickson was not the voice of Gabriel Knight. Since I never played the first one, for me Gabriel could only be Erickson. But then Tim Curry did such a great job of it, that he too became Gabriel Knight for me.

Venus, I do intend to play GK1, I think I will wait until after I played the remake. I believe I will then appreciate the nuances more. I hope I'm not wrong and should instead play it before.

And for me right now Tim Curry is Gomez Addams in Addams Family Reunion which I watched recently. It was such a disaster of a film, he is the only thing in it that made watching it bearable.

But he was excellent in Clue, and this is a film worth watching.

Rmt, I think you'll be fine, as the script for the game should be exactly the same. In fact, there will be new puzzles in the game, so in a way, you'll be getting more. smile Actually, it would be interesting to see the opinion of someone who has played the remake first. Maybe you'll become more attached to the new cast. smile Out of curiosity, which is your favorite of the two games you've played? Mine is definitely the second, followed by the third and then the first. They are all outstanding, though. smile

For a very long time GK2 was me favourite, but in time I came to prefer GK3, playing it again every two years or so. I find it very soothing to go to France and investigate the country side, it is like a holiday each time I play it.

I intend to visit Rennes Le Château soon, and I already went to Germany to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria. However it was closed to visits and instead I visited the other castle right in front of it. Lovely place on New Year's Day, with snow and icicles everywhere.

That is dedication for you, how much these adventure games have become a part of my life.

I live 18 miles from the lost Crown locations and have been to all of them apart from one! The net hut and harbour cottage are very creepy!
Anhk will more likly be a better bet for any questions on lost crown locations!

I can hardly wait for the Gabriel release.

I never could understand how Gabriel Knight
didn't translate to the big screen. Even the
small screen would be great. He is such a good
an interesting character.

Hopefully someday before 20 more years pass
we'll see Gabriel and Grace in a new adventure.

And how fabulous could a film trilogy of Gabriel Knight prove to be ??
As good as the Indiana Jones series, in my opinion !! yay

Better than Indiana Jones, because it would not be mindless action where Indiana sleeps just like that with the main heroine after a few insults have been exchanged. Have you seen the films recently? I was astonished at what we considered so great in the days. But hey, I guess it was very successful.

But a Gabriel Knight series would have real emotions in it, and more complicated relationships with more elaborate plots. It would be fantastic.

Well, a lot would, of course, depend on who got to direct the films, which actors played the vital roles and no doubt many other factors besides !! grin

So there's no guarantee we would get the interpretation WE might want rolleyes

The Indiana Jones films were always advertised as "full on action" so no misconceptions there - and given that they were smash hits, a lot of people must have enjoyed them as just that yes

[Plus, in fiction, especially modern fiction, people do seem to jump into bed with each other after the flimsiest of introductions !! lol]

For all of you who are anticipating the remake of GK1, here's Jane Jensen on why there's a resurrgence of Adventure Games.
It includes some shots of the anniversary edition that aren't in the trailer.

Thanks, Gil. The more people who buy the remake of Gabriel Knight 1 this summer, the more likely it will be, I think, that we see a Gabriel Knight 4. I'm certainly looking forward to playing the remake. wave

Yes, I do agree traveler that Gabe looks too sweet and girlish & am surprised at him not being portrayed as more rugged but.....

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've just read recently that the voice actor for Gabe is a great fan of the series & has managed to emulate Tim curry's voice well enough to hardly tell the difference. If that's true then the combination of that with Gabe's appearance could work in the game & possibly be very appealing? Also Gabe will still retain his original personality.

GK4 would be more to the point.


I completely disagree - although the graphics were probably very good for the time I think such an excellent game deserves a lot better now it's possible!
I had to play the original in windowed mode & even then the game was very pixellated.

I have read that if the game is successful there are no plans to remake either GK2 or GK3 but a GK4 is on the agenda!
