About Shadowgate VR: The Mines of Mythrok

About this game

RE-LIVE SHADOWGATE

The first book in the Shadowgate Saga, Shadowgate VR: The Mines of Mythrok brings the hit adventure series to virtual reality! On the 35th anniversary of the original release of Shadowgate, you can now step into the fantasy world of Kal Torlin like never before, immersing yourself completely in this exciting action/adventure game! With Odin the raven as your guide, and four difficulty levels to fit your play style, it's time to discover what secrets await within the Mines of Mythrok!

DELVE DEEP

Launched in 1987 on the Apple Macintosh, Shadowgate is the granddaddy of first-person, fantasy adventure games. Developed by Dave Marsh (founder of Zojoi) and Karl Roelofs, Shadowgate has been redesigned and/or ported it to over 15 platforms. While the beloved game has been critically well-received, it has never achieved the ultimate goal of its creators - actually being inside the fantasy world. That is, until now. Don your headset, unsheath your powerful wand, and move through the Dwarven halls of Mythrok, solving puzzles, confronting monsters, and fulfilling your destiny!

EXPLORE ANCIENT DUNGEONS

Marvel as you move deep into the Dwarven mountains, through mystic chambers, trap-laden hallways, and massive caverns.

SOLVE DEVIOUS PUZZLES

Use your wits to divine magical symbols, disable hidden traps, and decipher ingenious riddles.

WIELD ELEMENTAL MAGIC

Arm yourself with a sorcerer’s wand and impervious shield, perfect for disarming dungeon defenses and incinerating the deadly denizens that lurk in the shadows.

RIDE DWARVEN MINECARTS

Ready your wand, step aboard ancient minecarts, and discover what the Dwarves unleashed deep within the mountains.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE SOUND DESIGN

Composer Rich Douglas returns to bring Shadowgate to life with a killer sound design.

EMBRACE YOUR FAMILIAR

Your faithful companion, Odin the Raven, is at your beck and call to show you hidden secrets and provide hints and sarcastic quips in equal measure.

VR (WMR HP Reverb G2) version on the Shadowgate game, I have not played any original versions of the game so I cannot tell if there are any similarities to game play or story line. The controller bindings seem to work well without any editing through Steam, although the mapping in-game setup page did not show any information of the binding. There are in-game floating texts that attempt to tell you how the controllers work, and there is a tag along bird named Odin that is a companion that will give you hints along the way (when asked). Movement in the VR environment is snap turning that can be fine-tuned in setup, moving forward with either smooth continuous with left controller, or teleport with right controller. I forgot about teleport function which is required to make it through a certain puzzle. There are 4 difficult setting that can be changed on the fly during the game, I play on easy level. You are equipped with a wand/shield that you find early on the quest and have an inventory pack to open when you need to use objects you have gathered along the way. The puzzles consist of making way through a maze, finding objects laying around or in secret locations that you find with the help of Odin, dodging things shooting at you, and monsters that pop up to harass you (side note: monsters can be made to look more cartoonish so as not to scare you). You can die many times, but there are save points along the way that you can spawn back to. Also, you can reload a previous save point if you do not like to your progress. The story line is good enough for an adventure game, there are places to watch a recording of a Dwarf giving a report of some type. Overall, very good adventure game, so much for me that I forget about the time I have been emersed in the headset.
