What is 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 first-person fantasy title paved the way for a host of adventure games to follow and quickly made its way into the hearts of gamers all across the world. From its humble beginnings on the Mac 128k in 1987 to smart phones in the early 2000′s, the game has been ported to over ten different platforms!

Zojoi, the creators of Shadowgate, are proud to bring you the RE-IMAGINING of Shadowgate! While we love all of the versions of the game (especially the NES version!), this new game is NOT a port. We have relaunched the franchise, adding tons of new puzzles and twists to Shadowgate! Stunning new rooms, as well as familiar locations, have been added- many redesigned to provide a new play experience while retaining the essence and fun of the original. Kickstarted by thousands of backers, the game is being developed for PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices and will ship in August of 2014.

Whether you are a long time fan or a new adventurer, we hope that you will grab a torch and join us as we travel into the labyrinths known as Shadowgate!
