Gabriel Knight is a series of point-and-click adventure games developed and released by Sierra On-Line in the 1990s. There are currently three parts.
- Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
- The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery
- Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned
The Beast Within was produced as full motion video (FMV) game with real actors (Dean Erickson as Gabriel Knight and Joanne Takahashi as Grace Nakimura), the other two parts featured a comic look and voice talents of such well-known actors as Tim Curry as Gabriel, Mark Hamill as Mosely, Leah Remini as Grace, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. as Wolfgang Ritter and Michael Dorn as Dr. John, a proprietor of a voodoo museum in central New Orleans.
Cult Following of The Beast Within due to RocketBeans' Spiele mit Bart series
The second release, The Beast Within received in a boost of Fannish activity after German Youtube web channel RocketBeansTV did a complete play through to the German dubbed version of the game as part of their Spiele mit Bart series in 2016 which resulted in various audiovisual memes and production of fan works, especially in Fan art. The game takes place in Bavaria and Munich and in the original version, some actors attempt to speak German in their dialogues, the results (weird stressing of words and a sub-par German localisation) lead to unwanted comedic effects which made the second installment to some kind of cult-hit in parts of the German-speaking Gaming community. The complete play through was also aired on the channel Tele 5 who is known to air B- and trash movies like Sharknado.
