So as I've notice, and I'm sure that there are those of you out there who have noticed as well, there seems to be this re-emergence of the adventure genre, especially on the PC, and especially the point and click variety. Well in an interesting move it would appear that quite a few developers out there want to help shed light on this phenomenon. Starting today and then continuing once a week for four weeks a new video shall be revealed for your viewing pleasure. Now of course you are probably wanting some of the juicy details so have at this little morsel of awesomeness:
As we begin preparing for the release of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers® 20th Anniversary Edition, Pinkerton Road and Phoenix Online are starting a 4-week web series called “Rediscover the Adventure,” featuring both veteran and newer adventure game designers discussing the genre, it’s comeback, their influences and where it might be headed. Starting this week with a look at the original Gabriel Knight, series designer Jane Jensen is joined by Agustin Cordes (Scratches, Asylum), Ragnar Tørnquist (Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey), Laney Berry (The St. Christopher’s School Lockdown), and Charles Cecil (Broken Sword Series) in highlighting the game’s unique place in adventure game history, their favorite moments, and what influence the game has had on them.
