The 1993 release of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers was something of a departure for Sierra, which was, and is, better known for light-hearted fare like King's Quest, Space Quest and Leisure Suit Larry. Even so, the supernatural horror adventure about a New Orleans bookstore owner was a hit, spawning two sequels and, soon, a 20th Anniversary Edition remake.

Veteran game designer Jane Jensen and her indie studio, Pinkerton Road, have been working on a 20th anniversary remake of the classic Sierra point-and-click adventure Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers since last year. After co-designing King's Quest VI in 1992, Jensen got her first shoot at designing and directing her own project. That game was Gabriel Knight, the story of a New Orleans writer who investigates a series of ritualistic voodoo murders and discovers he’s the descendant of a long line of monster hunters. Pinkerton Road plans to launch the Gabriel Knight remake in early fall.

Jane Jensen recently spoke to PC Gamer about what's changing in the Gabriel Knight remake, the revival of the Sierra brand, and her hopes for a new game starring everyone’s favorite N’awlins Schattenjäger.
