Pinkerton Road has an iffy track record in terms of developing games, in much the same way that the historical Pinkertons had an iffy track record in terms of human rights. To be fair, though, that track record consists of only one game, and while they await their UN tribunal for Jane Jensen’s Moebius: Empire Rising, a Jane Jensen Adventure by Jane Jensen, they’ve seen fit to release a second title. This one doesn’t even mention “master storyteller Jane Jensen” until the bottom of its steam blurb. And while that description might seem like hyperbole, it is technically applicable in that Jane Jensen did tell a masterful story that one time back in the ‘90s, and this happens to be that same story repackaged for the new millennium. Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition is one of them fancy HD remasters that are all the rage these days, and that’s good news, because with one of the greatest adventure games of all time to to serve as their basis, even the team behind Moebius would be hard pressed to churn out a bad game.
They sure as hell tried their hardest though.
