I’M SO EXCITED. As a young gamer, one of my favorite games was the Gabriel Knight series on the PC. There was nothing like playing a creepy point-and-click game on the computer in the middle of the night when I should have been sleeping. Those who played this classic title will remember trying to solve mysterious murders in the spooky setting of New Orleans as the main character, Gabriel Knight, voiced by the amazing Tim Curry. Unfortunately, Curry will not be reprising his role – all of the voice actors have been recast. I’m still excited to see the return of some of my favorite characters such as Grace, Gabriel’s irreplaceable “assistant,” and his best friend, Detective Mosely.
For those who never played, all you need to know is: video game, old school point-and-click, murder, voodoo, New Orleans.
So far the game is expected to be released in mid-2014 for the iPad, PC, Mac, and Android. I want it on my iPad NOW!
