Quote:
Mount Joy, Penn. – October 15th, 2014 – Pinkerton Road Studio today announced that Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers® 20th Anniversary Edition (www.GabrielKnight20th.com) has shipped for PC and Mac, and is now available for purchase online for $19.99 from major online retailers such as Steam, GOG.com and the Phoenix Online Store. Gorgeous high-res 3D graphics, new playable puzzles/scenes, a remastered soundtrack, and exclusive behind-the-scenes bonuses from concept art and storyboards to making-of interviews are just a few of many captivating new features to be found in this brand-new edition of the award-winning classic, which critics consistently rank among the best games of all time.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition builds upon and greatly enhances one of gaming’s most storied adventures, reimagining the groundbreaking voodoo murder mystery, first released in 1993, for an entirely new generation of fans. Allowing players to experience the award-winning tale through the lens of a stunning visual makeover, and adding entirely new backgrounds and puzzles, it offers a must-see mix of new and familiar challenges alike.

Key Features:

• Experience the award-winning voodoo murder-mystery in stunning high-res 3D
• Adds new puzzles and scenes to familiar challenges
• Includes remastered soundtrack by original composer Robert Holmes
• Enjoy special extras and bonus edition content

As struggling author and bookstore owner Gabriel Knight, players will investigate a series of savage ritual killings in New Orleans and their connection to voodoo’s sinister mysteries. The deeper they dive into master storyteller Jane Jensen’s tale of terror and suspense, the closer they’ll come to discovering the secrets of Gabriel’s family history–and unfolding his destiny.

As part of a special launch celebration, publisher Pinkerton Road Studios and developer Phoenix Online are hosting a Launch Day Google Hangout at www.youtube.com/POStudios today at 2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific/7 PM GMT. More information can be found at www.GabrielKnight20th.com.

Pinkerton Road and Phoenix Online have been leading up to the game’s launch with a 10 Days of Gabriel Knight Countdown, featuring screenshots, music and free content downloads, including a new Gabriel Knight short story, “The Temptation”, the first official addition to the Schattenjäger’s story since 1999’s Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned. Fans can catch up on the various releases and activities here:

Thanks, Ana. happydance I got my GOG key, but so far it's not showing up in my library. Usually, even if a game isn't released yet, it shows up so the extras can be downloaded. Oh, well, downloading my Phoenix key in the meantime. lol I'll e-mail support if it hasn't shown up by the time it's out.

Hi, Ana!

Thanks for the heads up. I can't believe that I'm so excited about a game I played over 20 years ago, but I'm really looking forward to visiting New Orleans again.

I pre-ordered with GoG, so I'll check this afternoon to see if the download is available.

Mine still isn't showing up in my library. sad Looks like I'll have to e-mail them.

In the meantime, I've started the Phoenix version, and got a nice surprise when watching the credits. Dr. John is played by Dave Fennoy, a.k.a. Lee from The Walking Dead. rah I thought that sounded like his voice in the beta. He's such a fantastic voice actor and perfect for that part. happydance

Hi, Richard!

I just checked GoG and it's still not available for download. I'll check later this afternoon. You'll have to post your first impressions since you'll probably be playing shortly.
