Reverb Triple XP and the Zojoi development team have released new assets for the re-imagined Shadowgate, which is a new PC/Mac/iOS/Android game based on the late 80’s MacVenture series game of the same name. In 2012 the original duo behind the fantasy adventure title launched a Kickstarter to reboot the franchise with modern visuals and new designs, and now Karl Roelofs and Dave Marsh are proud to show off what they accomplished with the funding.

When asked about the project Karl Roelofs said:

“Dave and I are incredibly thrilled to be returning to Castle Shadowgate after all these years. When we created the MacVenture series, we knew we had something special on our hands – the initial response from gamers around the world was overwhelming! Shadowgate has remained near and dear to not only our hearts but to those who remember the haunting original, greatly evidenced by the support our Kickstarter campaign generated. The past few years we have been hard at work re-building and updating the Shadowgate experience and cannot wait to inspire, challenge, and terrify an entire new generation of players.”

The new Shadowgate will offer 4K-capable visuals and an insane amount of brain busting puzzles as the original, plus you’ll be able to interact with all sorts of in-game objects to help aid your quest through Castle Shadowgate. If you loved point-and-click style gameplay, then you should definitely check out what Shadowgate has to offer. Head on down below to view a few new screenshots from the game. You can also check out a new trailer for the game above.

Shadowgate is slated to hit the PC, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms later this summer. The game will retail for $19.99, but if you pre-order it now you can get it for $14.99. To find out more details, or to place your pre-order, head over to the game’s official site.
