Shadowgate Greenlit!
Description
Release date: Early 2014
Welcome, my friends, to Shadowgate!

"The last thing that you remember is standing before the wizard Lakmir as he gestured wildly and chanted in an archaic tongue. Now you find yourself staring at an entryway which lies at the edge of a forest."

So begins the legend of Shadowgate - the granddaddy of all 'point and click' fantasy adventure games and NES FAVORITE! This unique adventure paved the way for a host of adventure games to follow, sold millions of copies and has been ported to nearly 10 different platforms!

Zojoi, the creators of Shadowgate, are proud to announce the RE-IMAGING of Shadowgate! While we love all of the versions of the game (especially the NES version!), this new game is not a port. We are relaunching the franchise and have added tons of new puzzles and twists to Shadowgate! Stunning new rooms have also been added - as well as familiar locations, many that we are redesigning to provide a new play experience while retaining the essence and fun of the original. The game is being developed for PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices, in hopes of bringing back the first-person adventure game genre!

Shadowgate features:
  • First Person Adventuring: Utilize your inventory, spell book, mapping system and on-screen commands to complete your quest
  • Rooms: Tons of Beautifully illustrated rooms featuring both new and familiar locations, offering a new play experience
  • Puzzles: Lots of new and updated puzzles that seamlessly expand on the original game
  • Difficulty Levels: Three different difficulty levels that actually change the game play experience and puzzle structure
  • Commands: Intuitive command-based UI allows you to interact extensively with the environments (includes features like key binds, command locking/unlocking, retractable/maximizable HUD, etc.)
  • Storytelling: Features dramatic cut-scenes and all the same great storytelling you expect from a Shadowgate adventure
  • Cinematic Score: A full, digitally-orchestrated, dynamic soundtrack by composer Rich Douglas
  • 8-bit Score: A second retro soundtrack featuring Hiroyuki Masuno's original NES composition
  • Soundscapes: A complete atmospheric and puzzle-based sound design
  • Achievements: Dozens of in-game achievements to find and unlock
  • Animations: Environmental and object-specific animations and particles bring each location to life
  • Platforms: Supports Windows, Mac

Any chance we could get a re-boot of Uninvited as well? That game enjoyed killing me about as much as Shadowgate! Will definitely be buying this, in any case.
