@brooks83 Cool as it would be, I'm afraid I'm not Dave or one of the original ICOM Simulations team. I guess you could say I'm more of the "Informal Community Manager" who hangs around forums, news blogs, and social media sites to spread the word, answer questions, obtain feedback, and stuff like that. One thing that has been an important part of the role is basically learning EVERYTHING I can about ICOM Simulations, Shadowgate, and then some. (There is a HUGE amount of research involved).

If you WOULD like to talk to Dave direct, my recommendation is to Like our FaceBook page here:

http://www.facebook.com/zojoigame

Dave posts there in addition to myself, so if you want to send him a shout out or message of appreciation, I'm sure he'd appreciate it. :) We've also got a Twitter account, and you can sign up for our Mailing List at the Zojoi homepage here and e-mail Dave direct too:

I'll get back to your other questions in a bit as there are LOTS of things going today for launch. :)

@Ryno Glad to know you liked it! The original Mac and PC games didn't have any BGM, so Kemco's in-house composer, Hiroyuki Masuno, did all the music for the NES version. We've contacted him and Kemco and licensed the music he created so it can be in the new game. You'll be able to choose between the original 8-Bit Soundtrack, as well as a new orchestral version.

Here, have a sample from our composer, Rich Douglas:

@Jon_Talbain I can assure you, there's been a LOT of effort put into the puzzles over the years, both when on and off production of a Shadowgate game. There will be some familiar locations, monsters, items, and traps, but there will be a lot of new things too. A familiar looking room might require you to do something else to solve the puzzle. ;)

@Raiko Currently there are no plans to get this on the Nintendo platforms, unfortunately. The problem is that getting it onto major consoles would require a lot more work and resources than we currently have now. Currently, we are en route to releases on Windows PC, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android devices. If we could get this onto Nintendo consoles, we'd be ecstatic, but we have to be REALLY successful before we can get to that point. However, as I was saying to @brooks83, getting the original NES ports of the games on the VC could be doable.

@brooks83 Well if this campaign is a success, that might be doable. We've actually been in talks with Kemco already for a number of things. If enough interest is shown in Shadowgate and the MacVentures with this campaign, then it might persuade them to get the NES ports out on VC. Maybe. Can't really confirm or deny right now, unfortunately.
