It’s been 5 years since I reviewed the original title during the Halloween gaming special week, so it took quite some time for this new version to be made. The Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers-inspired gameplay and story about the titular journalist who discovers something about her family and tries to unravel a dark mystery in a small town largely remains the same, although now there are more than 700 new dialogue lines and a longer ending.
In addition to more storytelling, the small town setting just got bigger with more areas to traverse and puzzles to solve. Controls have been improved, while character animations, lighting and shadows as well as weather effects have also been tweaked. A remixed and expanded soundtrack is the icing on the cake and if one wants more customization of the bike the journalist drives around with, then 5 designs should do the trick.
The game is out now on PC, Android, and iOS with a 10% launch discount that lasts until November 2, 2021, at 4 PM UTC. If one already owns the original game, then the the price will be 50% off permanently. The soundtrack can also be bought separately, but without any discount.
