Gabriel Knight HD concept art
Fans may recall that in the 1990s, there was a series of point-and-click adventure games created by Sierra Entertainment. These games, titled the Gabriel Knight series, focused on the adventures of a New Orleans author and bookstore owner named Gabriel Knight, who finds that his destiny is to become a Schattenjäger, or “Shadow Hunter”.
Gabriel is joined by an assistant, sidekick, and yes, even (sometimes) romantic interest Grace Nakimura, who plays a major supporting role in the first game, Sins of the Fathers. She shares Gabriel’s role of protagonist in the latter two games, The Beast Within and Blood of the Sacred, with the player alternating between Gabriel and Grace for different portions of these latter games.
You may be reading this and wondering, “Why is he bringing up such an old game?” Well, the answer is quite simple. We’ve learned today that Gabriel Knight will be making a triumphant return in HD. This HD version will be available on PC, Mac, and iPad, and should be available next year!
Are you excited about this news? Or did you never care to play the series in the past?
