Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned

Easter eggs


Rennes-le-Chateaux bookstore

Look at the book store window. Jane Jensen (the woman who wrote and designed each Gabriel Knight game) can be seen. Also in the window is Gabriel's book he wrote about the Voodoo Murders. If you have Gabriel look at it he'll say "Wow, isn't he some famous author or something?"




Kurt Cobain burried at the cemetery

When you enter the cemetery, look at the tomb stone in the far right corner (just past the large tomb where Gabriel hides to observe Prince James' men). Make sure your game resolution is set high and you can read the faded name, Kurt Cobain (the legendary singer, songwriter and guitar player of grunge band Nirvana), though the year of birth and death are off by a few years (1969 - 1995 instead of the actual 1967 - 1994)




Ashtray sand

At one point the game designers are pulling a little joke with the gamer. At the train station of Couiza, there is a tipped-over ashtray with a paper laying in the ashtray sand. Any thorough adventure gamer would of course like to know if anything of importance is written on it. There is indeed something on it - "Why are you poking around in ashtray sand?", to which Gabe reacts "Oh... haha..."




Gabriel Knight 4

Search "GK4" or "Gabriel Knight 4" on S.I.D.N.E.Y. to see what Gabriel's next adventure could have been about - ghosts.




Not Roger Wilco

When Gabriel follows Roxanne into the supply room (Day 3: 10am - 12pm), try to operate the cleaning tool in the corner of the room. Gabriel will say "You must be confusin' me with Roger Wilco", the protagonist (and janitor) of Sierra's Space Quest series.
