August 14, 2014 — With just one week before the launch of the re-imagined Shadowgate, adventurers will need to drum up their courage as they venture into the depths of this mystical, living castle. Death waits at every corner and gamers will see just a few ways to die in this new “YOUR DEATH” trailer – be it from deadly dragon fire, piercing arrows, or clumsy decision-making, be ready to meet the Grim Reaper again and again!
In Shadowgate, intrepid gamers step inside the dark halls of Castle Shadowgate as “The Seed of Prophecy,” the only one who could hope to defeat the traitorous Warlock Lord that dwells within. Designed with compelling cut-scenes that greatly expand the original Shadowgate universe, gamers navigate from room to room via the classic first-person perspective, using their wits to survive the dangerous traps, devious puzzles, and ruthless enemies. If successful, they can assemble the Staff of Ages, a powerful relic capable of keeping this ancient enemy from destroying the living castle and the world of Tyragon itself.
Shadowgate will be available on August 21 for PC and Mac through Steam.
