The 20th Anniversary edition of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers comes out early this fall for PC, Mac, and iOS. It’s been completely rebuilt on the Unity Engine, with an updated soundtrack, new dialogue, extras sprinkled throughout, and the return of material that previously didn’t show up until the sequels.

The original Gabriel Knight was a pioneer in its day, a dark point-and-click mystery adventure with supernatural themes.

Jane Jensen and Robert Holmes, who helmed the original, are back for the anniversary edition, developed by their own Pinkerton Road Studio and published by Phoenix Online. (Be sure to check out our interview with Jane Jensen about the difference 20 years can make.)
