A few days ago Adventure-Treff posted my interview with Jane Jensen and I thought I should tell you about it.
The interview is rather short and focusses on her time at Sierra, but I hope you'll enjoy it! smile

Thank You for the interview.
One question: You don't mention Gray Matter at all. Why is that?

Glad you like it! smile

@smulan
There is a reason why I don't mention Gray Matter.
I did another interview with Jane before that was all about Gray Matter therefore I wanted to focus on Sierra and Gabriel Knight this time. smile

The first interview was a video interview that was filmed at the voice recordings of Gray Matter that I visited as a guest. It's not only Jane Jensen, but also the voice actress of Sam and the director of the voice recordings. The video has 3 parts. If you want to see it you've got to look for the Jane Jensen part. I don't remember when the interview with Jane starts.

Great interview! I especially liked the description of the opera sequence in The Beast Within.

thanks JV. If I had to vote for the best adventure game of all time it would have to be The Beast within or maybe one of the Monkey Island games. I loved how Jane let you play as both Gabriel and Grace. The plot was awesome and I think Beast was the first game that I played where I actually thought of the characters as real people.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Really a good interview. I am especially interested in the last year that Sierra was in existance before Vivendi destroyed the company. I would love to hear an interview with Roberta or Ken Williams about that subject.

Very interesting interview and information. There never was and probably never will be another series like Gabriel Knight. praise

thanks so much for sharing, JackVanian!

Shame there weren't any Gabriel Knight 4 hints...


There's definitely definitely definitely no logic to human behaviour.
