In a press release sent to Gaming Cypher this morning, developer Zojoi and Reverb Triple XP announced that Shadowgate will be launching a retro two-pack this weekend, as well as released new screenshots.
The special retro two-pack update to Shadowgate will launch this Saturday, November 22. Developed by the founding members of Zojoi, two of the legendary “MacVenture” titles – the original Shadowgate and the hard-boiled detective adventure Déjà Vu: A Nightmare Comes True – will be available as a free update to owners of Shadowgate. Additionally, each classic title contains both the 128k Mac and Apple IIgs versions. To celebrate the retro launch of these classics, Shadowgate will be available for a limited-time promotional price on Steam starting 10am PST on Saturday, November 22.
Gamers who thought the new Shadowgate was difficult, should get ready for a true old-school challenge with the original black/white and 4-bit color versions. Venture into a mystical living castle, solve riddles, and use magic spells in the granddaddy of all adventure games.

Déjà Vu puts the player in the role of Ace Harding – retired boxer and private eye – who 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.
