If you are a fan of classic point-and-click games, you may be happy to learn that Gabriel Knight 3 is celebrating its 20th anniversary this week!

Released in 1999 and the final game in the trilogy, Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned featured some great voice acting, 3D graphics, and to this day tells one of the more grandiose stories in gaming. Let’s take a moment to look back at the series and some of the things that made Gabriel Knight 3 so unique.

Gabriel Knight is a classic point-and-click series from the 90s

The series originated way back in 1993 with the release of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers – also a point-and-click adventure title. The story and game were created by Jane Jensen, who also worked on King’s Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow. You play as Gabriel Knight, a writer and bookstore owner who takes his craft seriously. More than that, he finds out he is a Schattenjäger, or Shadow Hunter, and uses that new responsibility to solve mysteries and other-worldly issues.

The first game has Gabriel solving mystery and murder in New Orleans and featured such voice actors as Tim Curry, Mark Hamill, and Leah Remini.

The second title, Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within (originally called The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery), followed and was released in 1995. This title updated the graphics from standard-for-the-time pixelated scenes, The Beast Within utilized full motion video (FMV) throughout the game. It also saw the replacement of many of the voice actors, including Gabriel himself. In 1996, the magazine Computer Gaming World named it their Game of the Year.

These days, almost every game is a roleplaying game. You collect and upgrade loot in shooters. You progress through skill trees in stealthy action-adventures. And you earn experience points in basically every genre under the sun.

But it wasn’t always this way – there was a time when RPGs stood apart. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, for instance, was marked out by a strong connection to the world of tabletop roleplaying, a heavy emphasis on player choice and problem-solving, and a quality of writing that often towered above what the rest of the industry had to offer.

Which makes it all the more tragic, then, that it was the game that ultimately led to the demise of its developer. Bloodlines was a game that was so ambitious – so ahead of its time – that it killed the studio that sired it.

Troika Games may not be a household name today, but the studio was home to roleplaying royalty. Founded by three of the key members of the Fallout and Fallout 2 development teams, Troika’s output included The Temple of Elemental Evil, an RPG based on a classic Dungeons & Dragons scenario, but it was the strikingly original Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura that really earned Troika a reputation.

Like most RPGs of the time, however, these games made use of a zoomed-out, isometric perspective. For its next game, the team at Troika wanted to place players face-to-face with its cast of characters. And when publishing partner Activision suggested that Troika create a followup to Nihilistic Software’s well-received Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption, Bloodlines began to take shape.
