Gabriel Knight Celebrates Its 21st Anniversary With New Comic Book
In celebration of the 21st anniversary of the release of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers®, Pinkerton Road Studio and Phoenix Online Studios, developers of the recent 20th Anniversary Edition remake of the game, yesterday announced the release of a brand new comic book version of the short story “The Temptation” by Jane Jensen at www.GabrielKnight20th.com. Also available in short story form, “The Temptation” is the first new story in the Gabriel Knight series since the third game, Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned, was released in 1999.
A complement to Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers: 20th Anniversary Edition, recently released for PC and Mac, “The Temptation” takes place six months after the third game in the series, and finds the Schattenjäger back in Germany, alone, with Grace having left for parts unknown, and wondering just what one does after fulfilling their destiny. A new mystery pulls Gabriel out of his malaise to investigate in the countryside, but this new hunt will reveal more than just what threatens this town, and opens up what could be the next chapter in Gabriel’s journey.
“It’s been such a pleasure to work in the Gabriel Knight universe again and write a new story,” says Jane Jensen, creator of the Gabriel Knight series. “I hope there’ll be more stories to tell soon!”
Chapter 1 of the comic book adaptation is available for free today at www.GabrielKnight20th.com, with Chapters 2 and 3 coming as free downloads in January 2015. Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers® 20th Anniversary Edition is on sale now as part of the Winter Sale at Steam and the Phoenix Online Store (store.postudios.com) at a discounted price of $16.99, and is also available at GOG.com and other online retailers.
