Our Favorite Deaths
One of the most important traits in Shadowgate is staying alive. However, that denizen of the realm of death loves nothing more than to usher young heroes into its land of the eternal dead. So, to honor the Grim Reaper and perhaps keep him at bay while we develop this game, we’ve picked some of our favorite death texts from the original (Go easy on us! These were the first things we wrote at the time :)
You have opened a magic portal into deep space. You are immediately sucked through. The lack of air causes you to quickly lose consciousness. The Grim Reaper quickly embraces you!!
Kneeling down next to the fountain, you drink a handful of the acidic water. You can't scream because you no longer have a throat, let alone a larynx!!
You thrust the sword in your chest, blood begins to flow, suicide won’t help in your quest. The Warlock Lord will surely triumph now!
As you try to pass the seemingly harmless slime, it quickly engulfs your body, dissolving it in seconds. You die instantly. No pain, no nothing. You were slimed.
As you remove the candle from its pedestal, the floor collapses, and you go with it. As you fall into darkness, you tell yourself that there must be a bottom to this pit. Your suspicions are confirmed as your head smashes into stone!
