The lights are on
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The point-and-click adventure was designed by Jane Jensen and published by Sierra On-Line. Jensen's new studio, Pinkerton Road, is handling the remake.
The title was the first in a series of third-person adventures featuring an author that follows the investigation of a series of murders. The title takes place in New Orleans, and the remake features updated art and re-orchestrated music along with behind-the-scenes material.
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father will be released on PC, Mac, iPad, and Android in mid-2014. Pinkerton Road's first title, Moebius, is scheduled to arrive before the end of 2013.

Our TakeAs a fan of the genre, I'm excited to see a resurgence. Not only are there fantastic new titles from developers like Telltale Games, but remakes like this will bring the great storytelling of the Gabriel Knight series to a new audience.
