The blurred text on the poster is quite obvious. What the hell?

Very interesting.

Curious if it says "From the creator of Gabriel Knight" (or similar) though the man in the trenchcoat raises my eyebrow.

Very interesting.

I can only hope.

edit: Text under "Pocketful of R___" says "Animated Graphic Novel...", so I don't think this is a game. The top line ends with "adventure game," so I figure it says, "Based on the best-selling adventure game," or something like that.

edit 2: Maybe it is a game, I don't know. It would make sense why Activision gave the KQ green light to Telltale and not Phoenix Online...

I got the impression that Telltale has the rights to make any of the Sierra properties.

So this will be another fan game if it is a game and not a graphic novel.

I'm pretty certain the writing above the title "Pocketful of..." says ".... creator of Gabriel Knight." Presumably, "From the creator of Gabriel Knight."

Which would lead me to guess that it isn't a new Gabriel Knight game, but something to do with Jane Jensen...

Squinting a bit, the text above the title seems to read "The word of Gabriel Knight" - could it be that, instead of violating Jane's wishes against someone else doing a GK game, this is a Blake Backlash mystery?

Alternately, it could also say "The World of Gabriel Knight", as in set in the same universe but with a different main character - making the unidentified man... Mosely, perhaps?

welll...i clearly see the text "from the studio that brought you the silver lining" (the fan KQ game)
so that makes me cautious.... but what is going on here...... very strange.

This reminds of after GK3 came out when everyone on the Sierra forums and elsewhere was trying to decipher what
Spoiler:
Grace's note @ the end of the game said. It was something like, "I've gone to study with ___(the monk)."
.

In the words of Sam Everett, this image is a "classic misdirect."

Ok, let's try to sum it up here:

The title presumably says: "The World of Gabriel Knight" and below - A Animated Graphic-Novel... adventure from the studio that brought you King's Quest IX: The Silver Lining

Now, if we know that recently Jane Jensen had been playing Silver Lining everything is going in the direction of cooperation between Jane Jensen and Phoenix Online in some kind of a new GK project

I don't like the Silver Lining fan stuff, far too amateurish. Doesn't spell any good if Jane is considering some kind of "cooperation". But unless someone has real proof I don't believe it for a moment. My impression is that she was just being polite with her carefully worded, noncommittal comments: It was cool to be reminded of the ‘land of the green isles’ again and some of those old characters. It is an impressive thing to achieve with volunteer workers and little to no budget. Good work.

so in other words... this poster was made years ago and isnt relevant in any way....



edit: actually it deeply amuses me that we learn in those forum posts that this was from a time when the game was still called KQ9. That means the dialogue for years has been "what series will we hijack next???"

As much as I dislike TellTale's style, please, oh please not POS. Anyone but, even TellTale over POS. If they thought that KQ fans were too critical, wait until they face the ire of GK fans over the same amateurish juvenile crap.

Why random chucks of a mock-up poster dating from many years ago was published is beyond irrelevant. It's probably a VERY good thing it isn't happening however, considering what POS did with King's Quest.

While I did love the old Sierra properties back then, I don't feel they necessarily need to return. At least not when produced with melodramatic and cheesy stories nor an episodic assembly-line manufacture. Those are best reserved to sitcoms and Reese chocolate cups. Sierra-style games require deeper artistic and technical means.

yeah seriously i probably wouldv flipped out if they launched a gk project without jane jensen. Im annoyed with what they did with KQ, but nobodies allowed to mess up GK, except for jane

Anyway, that post has been removed from facebook it would seem.
