Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is Getting Spruced Up for its 20th Anniversary Edition in 2014

Posted by Rob Rich on October 11th, 2013

As seems to be the trend these days, another point-and-click adventure game is getting the HD rerelease treatment. Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition is currently in development and slated for a mid-2014 release. The original, which was released back in 1993 by Sierra, and details the exploits of a writer/book store owner as he attempts to find inspiration for his novels while investigating local murders. Sounds a lot like a TV show, actually.

"I'm thrilled to be back at work on Gabriel Knight and to bring this classic game to a new generation of players," Jensen said in a press release, "It's going to look and feel like a brand new title. But never fear, 100% of the original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is here. I hope both existing fans and new players will love it."

This special 20th Anniversary Edition is being recreated from the ground up (with supervision from the series' creator, Jane Jensen) and will feature enhanced graphics, new voice recordings, and a remastered soundtrack from the original game's composer, Robert Holmes. Sins of the Fathers is set to release on the iPad next year.

Call of Duty: Strike Team Gets Deployed On iOS, Comes With A Single Player Campaign and Survival Mode

So, there is a new Call of Duty game that arrived on iOS today. Yeah, it pretty much came out of no where. Almost as if it were a "ghost!"

It's called Call of Duty: Strike Team and it's been built from the ground up for mobile devices. Pocket Gamer reports that it features both third-person and first-person viewpoints that can be used throughout a campaign and survival mode.

Call of Duty: Strike Team enables the player to switch out of the first-person view when things calm down on the battlefield and use third-person for missions that require a little bit of recon for coordinated squad based attacks. Wow, I pretty much just mentioned Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Ghost Recon in one sentence. Ok, I really need to play it now!

Players are able to customize their squad's weapons, perks, and body armor so that they can build a team that fits them best. It's probably important since players are going to be traveling all over the world while experiencing many cinematic moments which are surely full of explosions and chaos. There is only one thing that seems to be missing - multiplayer! What the shazbot is up with that? At least there is a leaderboard for survival mode...

o Baxter – This shy little guy provides a place to store all of your belongings you don’t want on your island but are too precious to part with.
o Young Willy – Willy’s own wish came true… he wanted to be a kid again and that lucky Wishin’ Well paid out handsomely! Now everyone is reaping the rewards with a new Luck Meter and premium top prizes.
o Hugo – Master Eon’s assistant, historian and librarian always knows what tomorrow’s Element of the Day will be.
o Cherry – She has a hop in her step and a way with the Elemental Totems. She doubles the amount of Totems (that means more wish stones)!
