Shadowgate: 25th Anniversary Edition

"The last thing you remember is standing before the wizard Lakmir as he gestured wildly, creating archaic patterns in the air and speaking something of a quest and the dreaded Warlock Lord. Now you find yourself in a dark wood with a secret entrance to a castle looming before you."

So begins the legend of Shadowgate - the granddaddy of all 'point and click' fantasy adventure games! This unique adventure paved the way for a host of adventure games to follow, sold millions of copies and has been ported to nearly 10 different platforms - including the fan-favorite NES.

Zojoi, and the creators of Shadowgate, are proud to announce the development of Shadowgate: The 25th Anniversary Edition! This gorgeous version of the game has been updated with new puzzles and hi-resolution artwork while still retaining the essence of the original. Developed for iOS and Android devices (as well as PC and Mac), this game will redefine the first-person adventure game for the 21st century.

We will be posting screenshots in the next couple of weeks so be sure to sign up for our Newsletter!


I am so excited for this release. Shadowgate has been hands down my favorite NES game ever since I was a kid, it was the first adventure game I can remember playing and I never thought I would see the day that this series would return. Day one purchase for me.

OOOoooooh. I hope they do the same with Shadowgate II aswell. It would be a shame to get one and not the other.

This looks awesome. Looking through the screenshots, I thought, "How do I get to the room above me?" I remember solving that puzzle when I was nine, but I have absolutely no idea how to solve it now...

If anyone is interested I recently discovered a Shadowgate Facebook page where Dave Marsh, the creator of the game, is an admin. He has been posting new screenshots now and then and the art looks amazing!

Does anyone have a release date or a price for this? I'm screaming for a pre-order!
