Fall In Love With Death In Shadowgate

August 21st - via: cliqist.com
Last week, I was given a chance to explore Zojoi’s reimagined Shadowgate for the first time. If you look at my preview, you can see that I was quite impressed with how the game was shaping up. But now we need to take one last look at the game and ask ourselves that very important, burning question: does Shadowgate live up to its name? (Read More)

Shadowgate Is Going To Be Dark, Dreary, and Unforgiving.

August 16th - via: cliqist.com
When I first stepped into Castle Shadowgate, I was young enough to fear its every corner, its every turn. It was the first videogame world I’d experienced where every choice you made—even something as insignificant as picking up a book—could lead to your demise. Despite fearing it, I was absolutely enthralled with the game. There was just something about those dark, twisting corridors that made it hard to leave, especially with how amusing some of the deaths were. (Read More)

Zojoi’s Karl Roelofs Discusses Shadowgate

May 22nd - via: cliqist.com
Zojoi’s Shadowgate is an upcoming reimagining of the classic title of the same name, originally released in 1987 for the Apple Macintosh (and later in 1988 for the NES). It’s a point-and-click puzzle adventure game where even something as simple as picking up the wrong object could mean certain death. Zojoi received $137,232 in crowdfunding back in November 2012 for the project, well-exceeding its $120,000 goal. (Read More)

Shadowgate Gets Closer To Reality

March 6th - via: cliqist.com
Good news for anyone that’s been wondering what happened to Shadowgate since it was Kickstarted back in November 2012. Zojoi, the team behind the prettier-than-the-original first person RPG, have announced that their creation has hit the Alpha milestone. What’s that mean exactly? As detailed in a lengthy update on the Shadowgate Kickstarter page it means that all of the main gameplay features are now present, and that the long awaited Beta is that much closer. (Read More)

June 20th - via: blogs.houstonpress.com

Interview: Dave Marsh on Shadowgate Kickstarter. "We definitely will keep that sense of danger around every corner"

November 10th - via: pcgamesn.com
I was more than a little excited to hear last week that a remake of the classic point 'n' click dungeon crawler Shadowgate had landed on Kickstarter. So I couldn't pass up the chance to talk with one of Shadowgate's designers, Dave Marsh. He's been with the game every step of the way since it was first released back in 1987 for the Apple Macintosh, and for each of Shadowgate's successive ports to a wide spread of platforms.I was trying to think about its closest modern day counterparts and, while it clearly shares a lot with other adventure games, I think it's got more than a little in common with Hotline Miami. You begin the game at the doors of Castle Shadowgate and you must make your way through its dark corridors and dragon infested caves to confront the warlock who's been terrorising the kingdom, to get there, though, you must first learn the patterns of the castle, overcoming each rooms' puzzles, learn the best order to approach its dangers. Especially as every wrong decision ends in a gruesome death; even taken too long about progressing sees your torch burn out and your character trip and break their face. Plus, it had a soundtrack that's equally compelling. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

November 2nd - via: rockpapershotgun.com
The British are coming! Lock up your tea, crumpets, biscuits, mild sexual innuendo and depressing postcards of empty beaches, because the toodle-pipping rotters need all that and more to fuel their infernal game-machines. The beginning of the Britstarter era brings a great deal of tempting prospects for your perusal – for starters, we’ve got the spirit of Bullfrog, the sequel to The Ship, a martial arts masterclass, dark fantasies and a dash of tweedpunk robo-horror. Never change, fair isles of wonder, never change. (Read More)
