The Objective

In this game, you’ll explore Shadowgate,  the Living Castle, its keep, towers and mines below, to find relics, spells, and most importantly, the legendary Staff of Ages to bring an end to the Warlock Lord, Talimar, his plans to release the Behemoth, and to subject the world to his reign of darkness! Do you have what it takes to stop him, gain the most XP points, and become the fabled Highlord of Westland?

If you have the Shadowgate 2014 soundtrack, it makes for  great atmospheric music while playing Shadowgate: the Living Castle. The composer of that music has made an exclusive track for the board game called "Beyond the Gate" you can download below.

My name is Chris Gaizat and I'm the Project Lead for the game Shadowgate: The Living Castle. This game came about because we wanted to pitch the "Quests of Shadowgate" card game to a game publisher, but backed out at the last second because we felt it was a good game, but was lacking the 'Adventure Game' aesthetic that made the IP so much fun. With permission from Dave Marsh, and the assets from the 2014 version of Shadowgate in our possession, we recreated the adventure game from scratch, and the above is what we've come up with. 

It has been an honor, and pleasure, to be able to help build on the legacy that ICOM / Zojoi / Kemco has brought us to thus far, and we hope you'll consider backing us on Kickstarter for a great 2-4 player experience.
