The creators of Shadowgate are developing a new version of the first-person fantasy adventure game and are looking to raise $120,000 on Kickstarter to realize their project.
This new Shadowgate is not a port, the devs stressed, but a re-imagining that includes many new features, updates and additions that will add even more to the mythology and expand upon the original story of the the “grandaddy of all ‘point and click’ fantasy adventure games.”
Rooms: More than 60 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
First Person Adventuring: Utilize your inventory, spell book, mapping system and on-screen help to complete your quest
Commands: Intuitive command-based UI allows you to interact extensively with the environments
Storytelling: Features the same great storytelling you expect from a Shadowgate adventure
Cinematic Score: A full, digitally-orchestrated 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
Animations: Environmental and object-specific animation bring each location to life
Platforms: Supports Windows, Mac, iOS and Android tablets
With 30 days to go, Shadowgate already has just under $24,000 of funding, as of this writing, meaning it’s already 20% funded. If you want to contribute or learn more, head over to Kickstarter now.
