It’s A Sad Thing That Your Adventures… Oh, Shadowgate Is Coming Back?



Wow, Shadowgate. That brings back memories or throwing torches at wraiths and smashing a mirror only to end up in another dimension. Shadowgate was an early point and click adventure game where players wandered through a castle using items and spells written backwards to solve puzzles.


Zojoi, a newly formed studio with members from the original Shadowgate and "MacVentures" team, wants to create a re-imagined version of Shadowgate for the 21st century. The new Shadowgate will have new puzzles and apparently items you actually hold in your hand. The 8-bit chiptunes from the NES version are also included for the sake of nostalgia.


Before anyone gets to play the new Shadowgate Zojoi needs to raise money to make it happen and right now they’re about $100,000 short of their Kickstarter goal. For $10 early birds can get a copy of Shadowgate for PC or Mac. $60 gets you an iOS or Android version, soundtrack, and digital art book. If you want to see the Grim Reaper taunt you again – here’s the pre-order page.
