Shadowgate completed its long journey from Kickstarter campaign to full-blown release in August, but developer Zojoi isn't finished with their faithful reboot just yet. The studio announced a new update for the game that will add some new features, as well as celebrate the Halloween holiday with a special side-quest.
The Dread Pumpkin Quest sends players to the outskirts of Castle Shadowgate in search of a mysterious Halloween spirit. Beyond this side-quest, the update will also add several improvements, many of which have been requested by the game's community. They include improved tutorials, a new wheel-based command system, quick-loading, and a new IronMan difficulty mode.
There's a (very) brief overview of some of Shadowgate's new features in the video below. Shadowgate is also on sale this weekend on Steam for 40% off.
