Designing A Gabriel Knight Spin Off -

Post by Tawmis » Mon Jul 09, 2018 3:36 pm

Just because I think these threads are fun for discussion -

If you were tapped as someone who had to make a Gabriel Knight spin off - using one of the existing characters that isn't a main character (so in this case, no Gabriel and even no Grace) - who would you make it about?

Essentially it'd be a way to create a game to develop and focus on another character, other than the main character(s).

So if you couldn't think of a game idea, who (aside from the main character(s)) do you wish you knew more about?

Hmm... how about Mosely? ;) All we know is that he went through a messy divorce from his wife (he tells us so in GK1). We also know that he's tough, friendly, devoted to his friends, and likes traveling. Unfortunately, Gabriel is adept at playing pranks on Mosely - so he isn't too bright.

That would be cool - get some background lore brought into the game!

"Hey man," (takes a hit) "I must be really trippin'... because man... that's either a hairy dude... or a werewolf."
"Hey, pass that over," (takes a hit), "Maybe it's like... Hairy Potter?"

(Double joke - Harry/Hairy ... Potter... because Pot...?) :lol:

Are we to assume that you will show yourself the way out?

Emilio Baza.

You know, Jesus is being Jesus, and Gabriel is fulfilling his duty as being connected in a bizarre way to Jesus, but Emilio essentially is like a Jesus... in them modern days. But he restrains himself from using that power as he stole it. So it isn't his to use. But what if... he was put in a position where he had to make immensely difficult choices NOT to use that power. Like... saving all of existence.

Anyway.

"I am enjoying the sun immensely, thank you."
