Drox Operative: Invasion Of The Ancients Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

GameBanshee has posted a new preview of Soldak Entertainment's Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients, the first expansion for the starship action RPG. The add-on will focus on a galactic invasion by the older races known as Ancients. Players will have to defend both the Drox Operative Guild and the younger races in the galaxy from the sinister threat.

The titular new element added in this expansion pack are the mysterious Ancients, old alien races long thought to be exterminated, now returned to the universe to take vengeance on the new rules of the stars. In theory, this should throw an interesting new element into the galactic relations - a faction that bypasses the diplomacy system and represents a threat to all races regardless of who they are could certainly spice things up.

As a rare random event, they will show up to stage invasions on the sector you're playing in, attacking in waves to wipe out entire solar systems. This introduces an interesting "monkey wrench" into the existing relations between races, as one particular faction you're courting might suddenly get half its empire wiped off the map if you weren't there to help protect it, forcing you to reconsider your plans for victory.

Gabriel Knight: Sins Of The Father Remake Coming In 2014
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, a 20th anniversary remake of the classic Sierra Online adventure game from the 90's, will be making its way to Macs in the middle part of 2014. Jane Jensen, original creator of adventure, has licensed the Gabriel Knight series from Activision and her indie studio Pinkerton Road will be bringing the game to modern machines. The 20th anniversary edition will include all new retina display quality visuals and voice recordings, a remastered soundtrack by original composer Robert Holmes, as well as some special edition content.

In 1993, a rash of ritual voodoo murders took place in the swamps and back alleys of New Orleans. With local police baffled, only one man was equipped to solve the case: Gabriel Knight, owner of a French Quarter bookstore, struggling novelist, and an unwitting descendent in a long line of shadow-hunting Schattenjägers. Armed with little more than a sacred dagger and talisman, his N'awlins drawl, and his own irresistible brand of charm, Gabriel Knight quickly became a gaming sensation when Sierra On-Line released his first adventure, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers®, in December 1993.
 
Twenty years later, the charismatic Schattenjäger is making a welcome comeback thanks to the work of Gabriel Knight® creator Jane Jensen's indie development studio, Pinkerton Road LLC, which licensed the Gabriel Knight IP from Activision Publishing, Inc.. The Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th anniversary edition is planned for a mid-2014 release as a digital download for PC, Mac®, iPad®, and Android™. The game is being reconstructed from scratch with all new retina display quality visuals and voice recording, in a development process overseen by Jensen.
 
"I'm thrilled to be back at work on Gabriel Knight and to bring this classic game to a new generation of players," says Jensen. "It's a designer's dream to be able to enhance the game and bring in more New Orleans flavor than technical limitations allowed us to in 1993. It's going to look and feel like a brand new title. But never fear, 100% of the original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is here. I hope both existing fans and new players will love it."
 
The revamped Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers will feature the same mature storyline and puzzle solving as the 1993 version, with research assistant Grace Nakimura, the inept Detective Mosely, and the local color of New Orleans supporting Gabriel's paranormal investigation. Stunning high-res (2048x1536) 3D graphics will replace the original 640x480 resolution pixel art, presenting the authentic New Orleans environments with more detail than ever before. The remake will also have a remastered soundtrack by Robert Holmes, the game's original composer, and will include special edition content.
 
Pinkerton Road has been working on the Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th anniversary edition under the working title "Mystery Game X" for about a year. The studio also has a brand new adventure game, Moebius, slated for release in 2013.
 
About Gabriel Knight
The Gabriel Knight series originated at Sierra On-Line, a pioneer of point-and-click adventure games, in the 1990s. Charming Schattenjäger Gabriel Knight and his long-suffering sidekick Grace Nakimura starred in three critically-acclaimed games: Sins of the Fathers (1993), The Beast Within (1995), and Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned (1999), as well as two novel adaptations penned by series creator Jane Jensen. The series is known for its mature storylines and layered characters, with supernatural mysteries and puzzle-solving gameplay drawn from real-world legend and historical events. All three Gabriel Knight games earned high review scores and industry awards including Best of E3, Best Story, Adventure Game of the Year, and Game of the Year from publications such as Computer Gaming World, PC Gamer, Gamespot, CNET, and others.
 
About Pinkerton Road
Jane Jensen and Robert Holmes founded Pinkerton Road in 2012 to create narrative games for tablet and desktop computers. A game designer and writer, Jane is best known for her work on the Gabriel Knight® adventure games and hidden object games such as Dying for Daylight. Robert is a composer, producer, musician, and strategic digital marketing executive whose music has appeared in numerous video games. The studio is working on two adventure games: Moebius, which was funded with a successful Kickstarter campaign, and the Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers® 20th anniversary edition. The studio has also released a children's ebook, Lola and Lucy's Big Adventure, for iPad.
