David Lins writes: "Zojoi’s Shadowgate is an upcoming reimagining of the classic title of the same name, originally released in 1987 for the Apple Macintosh (and later in 1988 for the NES). It’s a point-and-click puzzle adventure game where even something as simple as picking up the wrong object could mean certain death. Zojoi received $137,232 in crowdfunding back in November 2012 for the project, well-exceeding its $120,000 goal.
Recently, we had the pleasure of speaking with Zojoi’s Design Director Karl Roelofs who, along with his “cohort in crime” Dave Marsh, also created the original game. Stock up on some torches, punch the rock above the door for the key, and take a look at what Roelofs has to say about Shadowgate and game design in general."
