Episode 14 – Gabriel KnightSeptember 30, 2012
A little late, but here I am with episode 14! This time around we chat about the great paranormal mystery adventure game series, Gabriel Knight.
Project Eternity is a kickstarter RPG made in the vein of late 90′s PC RPG’s like Icewind Dale and Planetscape: Torment. If you like that style of game, check it out!
Sword of Fargoal 2 is an attempt (again on kickstarter) to bring back the Sword of Fargoal roguelike dungeon crawler from the Commodore 64. Again, if this type of game is your bag, give it a look!
Finally, in Steam news, the demo for the new X-COM: Enemy Unknown game is available for download. The full game is due to release on October 9th, 2012.
We then have two great listener emails where we go back and chat a bit about Command & Conquer.
Now, on to our main topic for the week, Sierra’s Gabriel Knight series. I go into great detail about the first game, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. We talk story, gameplay, tech focus and the rest. In dev story I go into the rest of the games in the series as well.
I end off with a live performance of some soundtrack music from the first game.
You can get all three GK games on GoG.com:
Next time, we check out an interesting 1993 tactical strategy series, Syndicate. Hope to see you then!
