Point-and-click adventure games have become on mobiles over the past couple of years, and one of the classics is set to make a comeback later this year when Zojoi brings Shadowgate back to the masses. Today, they kicked off their closed Beta and launched a new Storyline Trailer to celebrate.
Whether you played Shadowgate on the Mac or NES, the game is widely considered a classic. Needless to say, people got excited when the Kickstarter got under way back in 2012, and it’s been a long road to the closed beta. If you backed the game with the Novice tier or above and signed up for the beta you should be good to go.
Those who purchased the Hero tier straight from Zojoi are should be getting a notification about the beta as well, and if you don’t fall into either of those categories there’s still hope. Zojoi’s site has three pre-order options available, and the Hero tier will get you Beta access for $24.99 along with other goodies like wallpapers, a digital soundtrack, and an early release of the finished game.
Shadowgate is expected to hit the PC, Mac, and tablets sometime this summer, and the final product will set you back $19.99 when it goes live. As a fan of the NES version, it’s going to be interesting to see how fans take to the revamped classic as a lot of folks have high hopes for this one.
