Composer Rich Douglas Releases Official Shadowgate 25th Anniversary Remake Soundtrack


Official Shadowgate Remake Soundtrack Released on Bandcamp Soundtrack for Shadowgate’s 25th Anniversary Remak, currently in production by Zojoi, is the latest release from Dallas-based video game composer Rich Douglas.

DALLAS (May 29, 2013)– Texas-based Composer Rich Douglas is excited to announce the release of“Shadowgate 25th Anniversary Remake Soundtrack,”

a 71 minute album release which will act as the official soundtrack for the Shadowgate 25th Anniversary remake currently in production by Zojoi.

The album is currently available in a number of formats, including lossless, for $10.00.

The Shadowgate 25th Anniversary Remake score features a large orchestra and choir compositions.

Throughout the score, there are prominent brass and string segments complimented by subtle woodwind appearances,” said Composer Rich Douglas.“Also featured is an original song, Journey's End performed by the talented vocalist Jillian Aversa, which will run during the closing credits.”

The original version of Shadowgate was released on the Macintosh platform in 1987 and subsequently was released again on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989. Zojoi obtained the rights to utilize all of the original NES chiptune material within the game’s new score.

“The motifs and melodies heard in the NES iteration of Shadowgate such as "Castle Halls / Entryway", "Mirror Room", "Main Menu", "Courtyard", as well as the ominously sad Death piece are all contained within this release in their full orchestral form,” said Douglas.“In many cases, these themes have been re-orchestrated and tastefully woven throughout the entire score so fans can expect to hear some familiar pieces along with a wealth of new material to really help this new release stand on its own as a total gaming experience.”
