Hey all,

I just started playing GK1 and in the manual I read that the graphic novel (that was included in the original boxed version of the game) provides a good backstory.

GOG's version of GK1 doesn't provide this novel, but it is available for free from a website that claims to be a GOG affiliate. It's quite hard to read (the quality is pretty low) but with some effort it can be understood.

I currently don't have enough rep to post the link, but it can be found on the website called

I hope I'm not violating any copyrights by posting this. If I did, I sincerely appologize. My only intention is to help other fans of the GK series complete their experience. Because of the site's affiliation with GOG I thought it would be no problem.


I also found a version of a much better quality, but that's on a fan community page. With copyright issues in mind I will not post a link to that, unless I get approval for that.
Does GK1 really work well on Windows Vista 7? do you have to play it in DOS?

Old DOS games, like Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers run on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 by launching via DOSBox, an MS-DOS emulator that comes packed with each game. You don't have to worry about a thing, the less you think about it, the better, just install the game and launch it, DOSBox is integrated with the game and does its magic without you even knowing it. All you need to do is install the game and click the brand new Gabriel Knight executable or shortcut, and the game runs.

That's one of GOG's main features, making every game run out-of-the-box on modern operative systems and computers.

Being a fan of the series for all of these years, I didn't even know there was a graphic novel (I bought the game well after it initially came out).

Thanks for posting about it, the place I ended up downloading it from does link to GOG so folks can legally purchase the game outright.
The graphic novel is also available to download from, which is the official homepage of the former owners of the company, so it is probably in the public domain.
