Shadowgate Returns! (Again)

The recent PC do-over of the classic old point and click dungeon-explorer Shadowgate is coming to consoles on the 11th of April. That means you can buy it for your Switch and explore the big scary castle on the move.

I’ve got a real soft spot for this game. It’s not perfect, but it’s atmospheric, difficult and very old-school. It’s full of hard puzzles, red herrings and unfair deaths. But there’s just something about it. A kind of nostalgic magic.

I recommend checking it out if you’re interested in old games made new (but not too new).

Here’s a wee video from back when the Kickstarter for the remake launched, with the original designers talking to you like a couple of friendly old das.
