Classic adventure game ‘Shadowgate’ makes its way to consoles Fall 2018

A mere thirty one years after Shadowgate’s debut on the ‘Apple Macintosh’, it’s returning on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. The plot is very 80’s, tasking the player character, the last survivor of a line of magnificent and heroic kings, with defeating the Warlock Lord before he can summon the hellish demon Behemoth. The game isn’t just being rereleased, developer Abstraction Games are making sure the transition from 1987 to 2018 will be smooth as possible. This includes streamlined User Interfaces, new puzzles, new object interactions and much more.
