Shadowgate really deserves to live on. One of the best games on the NES in my opinion.

I had the Gameboy Color port when I was little but was surprised to learn that the NES version was a port of the original Apple version.

I think... I want to back this but probably shouldn't...

Why a remake? I'd prefer a new one.

And i'm surprised to learn that it was on the gameboy color.

A great Haloween game.
I can't afford anymore kickstarters ;_;. But seriously this is pretty impressive news. I'm surprised to see another shadowgate even remotely planned in this day and age. I'd have thought it would be too unforgiving for today's gamers.

Hopefully something more that a remake:
"While we love all of the versions of the game (especially the NES version!), this new game is not simply a port. We are updating Shadowgate with lots of new puzzles! New rooms have also been added - as well as familiar locations, many that we are redesigning to provide a new play experience while retaining the essence and fun of the original."

Shadowgate is easier than alot of action games these days. The types where your guy has like 1 health, no weapons, and against 1000 enemies at the same time.

Shadowgate is like a deathtrap dungeon. Finding your way around is a slow progression, but it's do-able.

Never heard of it (I was apparently three years old when it came out); I wonder how much they'll ask for.

I really hope it's a $10 tier for a game copy reward.
Never played the Sherlock Holmes games, are they any good?

I like them - I haven't played them recently, but I played them as a kid. They don't have a huge amount of replayability (once you discover who the murderer is the only thing to do then in replays is to find the most efficient path of evidence), but they are fun mystery games.

Looks like they own all the rights to ALL of the Mac-Venture titles - Deja Vu 1, Deja Vu 2, Shadowgate, and Beyond Shadowgate.

Guys - we really need to get them to get ALL of these CLASSICS on GOG, Steam, and any other digital distribution service!! :D
I remember being both frustrated and ecstatic about this game when I was playing it on the NES in my youth. Good times. Great death descriptions. Good music.

I'm not ecstatic enough that I'll want to pledge though. I'll stick to throwing money at my games of choice so other people can get the chance to enjoy them later. Fans of this genre can make Shadowgate Remake happen without me and maybe I'll have the chance to enjoy it later too :)
Wow, some of the posts in the links the OP provided really makes you wonder how widespread those elitist old-school jerkoffs are.

A tablet version=no buy? Because why exactly?

Idiots ...
