Jane Jensen's point-and-click adventure series Gabriel Knight is coming back next year -- that's the impact crowdfunding has had on adventure gaming. Jensen's Pinkerton Road is remaking the original title, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, for PC, Mac, iPad, and Android as part of its 20th anniversary. It's painful to think that the '90s were so long ago.

It was actually Activision, the license holder, who reached out to Jensen for the remake after the company decided now was the right time. It's being developed by Phoenix Online Studios, the team working on the Kickstarted Moebius, under her direction. You might also remember this studio as being the one behind The Silver Lining, a King's Quest fan game.

The main differences for the revised Gabriel Knight are audio/visual. The artwork will be more suitable for modern-day resolutions; the music is going to be redone by the game's original composer, Robert Holmes; and the voice cast is all new. That latter element is being handled by Bay Area Sound, who worked with Telltale on The Walking Dead and Tales of Monkey Island.

It's fantastic to see the series in the limelight again. Even better that it's not being funded by fans.

Is P.T. a work of art, or a pixel-hunting exercise in frustration?

When P.T. was announced at gamescom a few weeks back, no one really jumped for joy. Billed as a "playable teaser," the interactive trailer was very much a game, and come to find out -- it had many elements of old school ...more

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more

Want to watch 35 minutes of gameplay from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

With gamescom now behind us, you'd figure that CD Projekt RED would keep a tight lid on all things related to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But apparently not, as it would seem. A week after the show, the developers decided to un...more
