The sequel to Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers.

From Wikipedia:

The storyline weaves together werewolf mythology and Bavarian history with sexual intrigue and businessmen's quest for their primal roots. The game's two lead characters are Gabriel Knight—the seemingly less-than-bright but smart-as-a-fox mystery writer and bookstore owner—and Grace Nakimura, his less-than-trusting assistant. Knight has inherited a castle in a small German village and the title of Schattenjäger ("shadow hunter" in German) that comes with it. It has been a year since the voodoo murders case (The Sins of the Fathers) and the local villagers implore him to investigate the mysterious death of a little girl—caused, they believe, by a werewolf. Knight and Nakimura's search for clues takes them to Munich, King Ludwig II's famous Neuschwanstein Castle, Altötting and Bavaria's forested countryside. Their efforts lead them to uncover the truth about King Ludwig's mysterious death and discover a lost Richard Wagner opera, written by Robert Holmes (composer of music in the game).

The game is divided into six chapters and the player controls Gabriel and Grace alternately between the chapters. They conduct their investigations separately for the most of the game, only joining forces in the finale.

It comes on 6 CDs, which have been transferred to Toast images and archived with StuffIt.

"The Riddle of Master Lu" ? Not this time, but I have seen it, for too much money. I still keep them in my Watch list, just incase they one day reduce the price to something bearable.

Yeah they can be expensive sometimes. Currently watching a lot of stuff, but it's all up around £10 / $15 each on a good day, sometimes £25 / $40. Not going to pay that.

This pristine box of GK2 was an eBay purchase last week, £0.99. I have a few more like that lined up to finish in the next week. Got another 3 CD adventure a few days ago, for £0.99 of course, quite rare, as it was only ever released in Europe. More details on that when it arrives.

I second that. Awesome upload and probably a lot of work getting these six discs up there. Kudos to bertyboy!

Respect for your effort, bertyboy! A recommended, if not; 'must-have', for anyone unfamiliar with these games.
