One of the best Adventure games is getting a re release. Sadly with a new voice cast though...
I understand that the great Tim Curry will not be reprising his voiceover role in the game. In fact you've had to re-record and re-cast the entire game. Why is that?
Tim Curry was great! We didn’t have the original audio files, and at the time Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers shipped, the audio was pretty compressed. So to just strip it out of the original game didn’t yield a good quality. We had to rerecord. Because it’s been twenty years, most of the original actors would not sound the same and also the cost of getting that original cast was prohibitive. We really lucked out with Sins of the Fathers in 1993 because it was one of the first video games to use Hollywood actors like that, so everyone gave us a smoking deal (including SAG)! For the remake we used Bay Area Sound, who have done a lot of games with Telltale including Sam & Max, Tales of Monkey Island, and The Walking Dead. So we were in good hands and got good results.
