REVERB TRIPLE XP AND ZOJOI ANNOUNCE RETRO JOY: THE MACVENTURE SERIES COMING SOON
TO PC AND MAC
Delve Into the Four Classic Adventures of Déjà Vu, Déjà Vu II,
Uninvited, and the original Shadowgate
Twain Harte, CA – January 15, 2015 – Zojoi, the creators of the re-imagined NES classic Shadowgate, and Reverb Triple XP are happy to announce the return of four legendary adventure titles coming to PC and Mac on Steam and other digital distributors. Gamers will be able to enjoy the entire MacVenture Series – Déjà Vu, Déjà Vu II, the original Shadowgate, and Uninvited – in late January 2015. Not only that, but each MacVenture Series game contains both the original Macintosh 128k black and white, and Apple IIGS 4-bit color versions.
“Fans of the new re-imagined Shadowgate have been clamoring for more story-based adventures in the style and themes of the original MacVenture games,” said Dave Marsh, Founder of Zojoi. “So while we were developing our new projects, we did a face palm. Why not make these memorable classics available to them now and take a look into other platforms as well? It was a blast to see how awesome the titles have held up!”
The MacVenture Series will consist of the following four adventure games:
Déjà Vu: A Nightmare Comes True – Theodore “Ace” Harding – retired boxer and private eye – wakes up in a bathroom stall, unable to remember anything and framed for murder. Players must solve a complex mystery before either their health, or the cops, bring them down.
Déjà Vu II: Lost In Las Vegas – Players revise their role as Theodore “Ace” Harding, hard-knuckled gumshoe. Ace has been abducted by the notorious Las Vegas mobster, Tony Malone. Knocked senseless and left in the bathtub of a cheap Vegas hotel, gamers must re-trace their steps to unravel a mysterious conspiracy.
Shadowgate – Welcome to Shadowgate, the living castle. Your destiny, as the last of a great line of hero-kings, is to stop the diabolical Warlock Lord before his black magic unleashed the hideous Behemoth and destroys the world. Venture into the mystical castle, solve riddles, and use magic spells in the granddaddy of all adventure games.
Uninvited – After an unfortunate car crash, players awake in front of a mysterious mansion, only to discover their brother is missing. With nowhere else to go, players embark on a frightening journey replete with menacing spirits, roaming zombies, and a horde of other dark dangers.
Launching later this month, each of the games in the MacVenture Series can be purchased separately or as part of a four-pack bundle. For more information about the MacVenture Series or the re-imagined classic Shadowgate.
