Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition launches in October, preorders open now

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.


Jane Jensen's Moebius now has a demo, full game out April 15th

Sad Update: I've been informed that Moebius' secretive organisation is no longer called F.I.S.T. It is now called F.I.T.A. I don't know how to process this information.

Jane Jensen's Moebius is out soon, and to coincide with the occasion there is now a Jane Jensen's demo to keep us Jane Jensen's occupied in the meantime. The demo gives us the opportunity to step into the sharp-suited, beanpole body of one Malachi Rector (not pictured above), who just might be the best-named game character this side of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's intemperate villain 'Hot Coldman'. Expect to click on things, talk to people, and save a handsome man from hanging in order recruit him to your globe-hopping mystery squad - it's all in a day's work at the following link.

Cognition episode three hits next week; play as an investigator AND a serial killer

Katie Williams at

Look, the next season of Dexter is just too far off. I want my annual dose of serial killer thoughts and blood spatterings now. Good thing May 16 will see in the third chapter of episodic adventure gaming series Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller. The titular heroine, an FBI agent, is homing in on the killer that's stalked her for two entire episodes. Just why does this guy want her dead, anyway? We'll find out next week, because we get to play both as Erica and the killer. Suspenseful!
