So far, adventurers have only heard rumblings of a malevolent presence in Castle Shadowgate. A new trailer sheds puts a name to the main opposition in your quest – the warlock lord Talimar the Black.

Talimar has assembled his armies – including goblins and dragons – to help bring down the castle. Players will have to work their way through the structure room by room, solving puzzles and ultimately thwarting evil by assembling an ancient relic. Shadowgate is an update of the classic adventure game of the same, developed by two of the game's original creators. You can see a side-by-side comparison of the original game and the reimagined version here.

Shadowgate is set for an August 21 release on PC and Mac.
