Gabriel Knight – Sins of the Fathers is another classic adventure game from Sierra. It features a pretty significant voice cast (for the time period) with Tim Curry, Leah Remini, Mark “Luke Skywalker” Hammill and Michael “Warf” Dorn. It has a very strong story focused on mysterious murders which are based in voodoo in real life New Orleans places.

I get crackling in this game in DosBox, but it’s not fully integrated in ScummVM yet (can’t handle the movie files). Also the movie files are really small in resolution, so I double the size for this intro and mixed footage from Scumm and DosBox to get the result.

From Wiki:
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is a 1993 point-and-click adventure game developed and published by Sierra On-Line, it’s the first game of the Gabriel Knight series. Sins of the Fathers is a point-and-click adventure game, played from a third-person perspective and is set primarily in and around New Orleans and includes such real life locations. The game follows Gabriel as he follows the police investigation into a spate of killings which apparently have voodoo overtones. Gabriel is hoping to use the investigation as the basis of a new novel, but as the days of the case progress, he is drawn much deeper into a mystery which links the murder spree to the underworld of voodoo myth and practice, and towards a beautiful and mysterious New Orleans socialite.
