About The Special Edition Pack includes Shadowgate and The Special Edition Upgrade DLC
Shadowgate is one of the most well-known and beloved point-and-click adventure titles in gaming
history. As one of the original titles in the popular MacVenture series that went on to be celebrated
on the NES, GBC, and Nintendo 64, Shadowgate quickly endeared players with its fantastic atmospheric
soundtrack, perilous locations to progress through, countless puzzles to solve, and more ways to
gruesomely die than gamers previously thought possible. Thrust into the role of "The Seed of Prophecy,"
players travel deep into the living castle, in hopes of defeating the evil that dwells within – the
dreaded Warlock Lord.
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.
