Shadowgate Getting Remade for Android, iOS, Mac and PC

Shadowgate, the classic adventure title that was a PC/Mac hit, is getting remade by the creators, Zojoi. This remake of Shadowgate is coming to many platforms including Android, iOS, Mac and PC- no word on a console version (the original did hit the Nintendo NES and Game Boy Color and ranks high with gamers that played it). This remake though, this is how remakes should be done.

For those that do not know, Shadowgate is a first person adventure pitting you against the evil wizard that is trying to destroy the world. This new game is just that, a brand new game, not a port, not an “HD” update or anything of the sort. There will be brand new puzzles, for get breezing through with your skills gained from the original, and a new story with a full digital orchestral soundtrack. This is an all new Shadowgate.

“Dave and I are incredibly thrilled to be returning to Castle Shadowgate after all these years,” said Karl Roelofs, design director at Zojoi. “When we created the MacVenture series, we knew we had something special on our hands – the initial response from gamers around the world was overwhelming! Shadowgate has remained near and dear to not only our hearts but to those who remember the haunting original, greatly evidenced by the support our Kickstarter campaign generated. The past few years we have been hard at work re-building and updating the Shadowgate experience and cannot wait to inspire, challenge, and terrify an entire new generation of players.”

Shadowgate will come with many in-game and Steam achievements for you to find. The team developing this understand that achievements are a big thing in gaming today and are obliging gamers with plenty to explore the game world and earn.

“Discovering amazing indie game developers like Zojoi and helping power their success is exactly what Reverb Triple XP is all about,” said Tracie Snitker, president of Reverb Triple XP. “We see the tremendous potential in delivering Shadowgate to today’s gamer and we are working side-by-side with Zojoi to create customized programs for this unique game. We continuously evolve our initiatives to be ahead of the curve with versatile, aggressive marketing and PR strategies for indie developers around the world.”
