Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

We’ve almost—not quite, but almost—reached the point where Mac gamers won’t have to wander the halls of the Los Angeles Convention Center wondering what to do next after their first day at E3. As game lineups continue to be announced, more and more are including Mac compatibility. Phoenix Online, for example has three games on display, all of which will be released for OS X, and one that has also hit iOS.

The iOS compatible game is The Last Door: Collector’s Edition, which is currently available. The forthcoming games are the humor-filled fantasy RPG Quest for Infamy (due out June 26th for Mac and PC), and the voodoo murder mystery Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Remake (coming in the third quarter of this year).

I bet you want some details, right?

The classic adventure game masterpiece Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers returns! Roguishly handsome Gabriel Knight, a struggling author and owner of a struggling bookstore in New Orleans, is investigating the Voodoo Murders for his new book: a series of savage ritual killings surrounded by voodoo trappings. But his search into the dark underbelly of New Orleans will reveal far more than who’s behind the killings, as Gabriel is drawn to the beautiful and aloof Malia Gedde and learns the secrets of his family history and must his own destiny if he’s going to survive.

Return to the glory days of role-playing and adventure in Quest for Infamy, a humor-filled fantasy epic styled in the vein of classic PC RPGs, where you play the charming villain. Blending turn-based combat and spell-casting with puzzle solving and adventure, players can choose from three character classes—brigand (strength), rogue (stealth), or sorcerer (magic), each with unique storylines and adventures—in one of the largest retro role-playing experiences ever. Adventurers are invited to explore a world of hand-drawn wonder, as they wind their way through trap-infested dungeons, battle slavering beasts with swords or custom-made spells, and lie, cheat and steal their way to infamy.

You’ve never truly felt what it’s like to be alone in the dark until you’ve played The Last Door: Collector’s Edition, a low-res, high-suspense horror adventure that’s won multiple Best Games of the Year awards, which Penny Arcade calls “a love letter to H.P. Lovecraft.” The Last Door: Collector’s Edition features exclusive new scenes and puzzles, enhanced graphics, unlockable bonuses, and remastered sound in a special must-see edition of the popular point-and-click adventure. Exploring ancient manors, decaying tenements and twisting underground warrens with lamp and magnifying glass, four terrifying episodes of occult and otherworldly horror invite you to investigate Victorian England’s deepest, darkest secrets.
