English | PC | 2014 | 1.36 GB
Genre: Adventure, Indie
Now, nearly 30 years after the original version haunted Mac and NES gamers, the original development team behind that timeless classic is back with a full re-imagining of the original Shadowgate. Much more than a port, the team at Zojoi has painstakingly redesigned the game from the ground up, adding in tons of new mind-bending puzzles, lots of new rooms with stunning hand-painted 2D graphical detail, and more objects to interact with and help you along your quest.
Decide how YOU want to play this new, re-imagined Shadowgate! Want the modern adventure experience? Use the wheel-based icon command system. Want the retro experience? Employ the Classic command system and turn on the retro graphics, soundtrack, text box, and room transitions. Want a more cinematic experience? Switch to Immersive mode by auto-hiding the UI and using customizable hotkeys to explore the castle. Or mix and match the options to satisfy your play style. In Shadowgate, there are plenty of new features and fun throwbacks to the original version to satisfy veteran adventurers and newcomers alike!
Halloween Update Patch Notes
Key updates include:
-- Alternate Command System: In addition to the Classic/Retro command system, we now offer an additional way to interact with the game world: a modern icon-based system. Immersive (Hide UI) mode, keybinds and locking are still available in this mode.
-- Casual Game Mode: Perfect for those unfamiliar with the Shadowgate universe. The game is very forgiving, offers unlimited torch life and generally keeps the Grim Reaper at bay.
-- Ironman Mode: Perfect for advanced players. In this mode, saved games are disabled, requiring you to complete your grand adventure in one sitting.
-- Show All Objects: For those that want a bit of help, this key bind highlights all objects in a room.
-- Quick Load Option: This additional key bind is for quick loading a saved game.
-- Tutorials and Hints Changes: The tutorials and hint text have been overhauled to be even more helpful.
-- UI Elements: The UI elements are adjusted in size to offer more visibility of each scenes. Also, the Load/Save dialogues have been relocated for ease of use.
-- Additional Achievements: Gotta catch them all, Ironman, Seven Angry Dwarven Miners, Signal the Castle, Book Collector, Pyromaniac and Pumpkin Hunter.
-- Retro Graphics Option: A pixelated filter has been added for those who wish to play the game in retro graphics mode. This fun extra is easily turned on and off in the settings or via a keybind.
-- Destroyable Objects: Key objects cannot be destroyed in easier difficulty settings.
