It's not the first time, nor the second, but a timeless adventure such as Shadowgate is always welcome to be remade again and again. At the helm of this new version is Zojoi, a company founded by Dave Marsh and Karl Roelofs who coincidentally are also the original creators of the original game.

While they promise to keep all the classic adventure and puzzles intact, they are also stating that they will go further to really kick things up a notch, with high res artwork, tons of new puzzles and rooms, object specific animations and a new dual soundtrack, with the choice between a cinematic score or the original NES soundtrack which is regarded as one of the classic system's finest. The game is planned for Windows, MAC, and iOS.

Zojoi earlier had a Sherlock game on Kickstarter and Shadowgate will follow suit, so if you long to enter the castle and play with the wizard's stick, keep up with their Facebook for more news as the Kickstarter launches this Friday. Now bring back Deja Vu and have The OneUps do the soundtrack, kthx.

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back

I really enjoyed watching Clementine's tale unfold over the course of The Walking Dead Season 2. It managed to establish a different tone than the first season, which makes them rather hard to compare bit by bit. But in terms...more
