Shadowgate is back! The point and click game that surged in popularity for the Ninentdo NES, GameBoy Color and later on the Nintendo 64 systems, is making it’s return. With the power of Kickstarter, industry titans Karl Roelofs and Dave March are completely rebuilding the Shadowgate saga and bringing it to today’s advanced technological and graphical capabilities.


“Dave and I are incredibly thrilled to be returning to Castle Shadowgate after all these years,” said Karl Roelofs, design director at Zojoi. “When we created the MacVenture series, we knew we had something special on our hands – the initial response from gamers around the world was overwhelming! Shadowgate has remained near and dear to not only our hearts but to those who remember the haunting original, greatly evidenced by the support our Kickstarter campaign generated. The past few years we have been hard at work re-building and updating the Shadowgate experience and cannot wait to inspire, challenge, and terrify an entire new generation of players.”

Nearly 30 years later, indie game developers Zojoi and Reverb Triple XP are teaming up to bring Shadowgate re-imagined and updated for today’s gaming landscape. Check out it’s pre-release trailer below!
