Gabriel Knight Countdown Day 9

Behold, a 14-minute video starring Jane Jensen


Written by on


Here, Jane discusses the differences between developing a game in the early 90s and today. We also see her playing some of the 20th Anniversary Edition, revealing the improvements and updates to the original as well as some of the reasons behind the additional content in the remake.

In the video we see Gabriel’s new diary, the hint system, new puzzles, some familiar locations now updated as well as new screens not found in the original.

As Jane plays and comments on the game, she grants us insight into many of the decisions that carried through the game’s creation. The 20th Anniversary Edition could not have been possible without her vision or the community’s support.

Tomorrow, both a new generation and longtime players will be introduced to Gabriel Knight, the wait is nearly over!

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
