Reviews

“With a shift from stationary puzzling to action-oriented (but still with puzzles!) Shadowgate VR is an important step for the franchise. It preserves the soul of the original, but modernizes it for a whole new audience. This first chapter is a taste of things to come, and I’m excited for it.”
90 – Gaming Trend

“Overall, the first chapter comes together as a wonderfully fun and exciting dungeon crawler. Shadowgate is a superior first VR effort from the Zojoi team. They have struck an engaging balance between the roots of the game, the tropes of the fantasy genre, and the spatial and immersion possibilities that VR offers for gaming. Hopefully, there will be more VR chapters of the Shadowgate saga to enjoy in the future.”

About This Game

RE-LIVE SHADOWGATE

The first book in the Shadowgate Saga, Shadowgate VR: The Mines of Mythrok brings the hit adventure series to virtual reality! On the 35th anniversary of the original release of Shadowgate, you can now step into the fantasy world of Kal Torlin like never before, immersing yourself completely in this exciting action/adventure game! With Odin the raven as your guide, and four difficulty levels to fit your play style, it's time to discover what secrets await within the Mines of Mythrok!


DELVE DEEP

Launched in 1987 on the Apple Macintosh, Shadowgate is the granddaddy of first-person, fantasy adventure games. Developed by Dave Marsh (founder of Zojoi) and Karl Roelofs, Shadowgate has been redesigned and/or ported it to over 15 platforms. While the beloved game has been critically well-received, it has never achieved the ultimate goal of its creators - actually being inside the fantasy world. That is, until now. Don your headset, unsheath your powerful wand and move through the Dwarven halls of Mythrok, solving puzzles, confronting monsters and fulfilling your destiny!


EXPLORE ANCIENT DUNGEONS

Marvel as you move deep into the Dwarven mountains, through mystic chambers, trap-laden hallways and massive caverns.

SOLVE DEVIOUS PUZZLES

WIELD ELEMENTAL MAGIC

Arm yourself with a sorcerer’s wand and impervious shield, perfect for disarming dungeon defenses and incinerating the deadly denizens that lurk in the shadows.


RIDE DWARVEN MINECARTS

Ready your wand, step aboard ancient minecarts and discover what the Dwarves unleashed deep within the mountains.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE SOUND DESIGN
