GameCrate: "The classic point-and-click adventure genre has seen a major resurgence in recent years. A staple of the ’80s and early ’90s, these text-driven games saw a huge decline once platformers, shooters, and action-adventure titles rose to prominence. You can essentially thank Telltale Games for bringing the classic adventure formula back with great series including Sam & Max, Monkey Island, and The Walking Dead. Developer Zojoi, however, wanted to go even more old school, bringing back one of the progenitors of point-and-click, choice-driven, text-based adventuring: Shadowgate. The end result is pretty impressive, even if it isn’t always inviting."
