Update #1 Repost - Too cool not to repost for our new backers!

Hello all,

On our second day, we posted Update #1 by uber-composer Rich Douglas and with all the updates, this awesome post got buried. Rich's loss-less digital soundtrack is available at the Novice Tier ($30) along with the digital book "The Art of Shadowgate" by artist Chris Cold...

So, like any good adventure game, we have unearthed it and present it to you enjoy once again! 

One of the things that the original mouse-driven versions of Shadowgate was missing was proper music (I hesitate to think where I found the sound effects!) In 1989, Hiroyuki Masuno did a masterful score for the NES version - a fan favorite. Rich Douglas will take over the helm in 2012, paying homage to the NES score and developing a full sound design for the game. He has graciously provided us with our first update.

      This is an amazing look behind the curtain! I'm really happy to hear that the NES music is helping inspire this new imaging of Shadowgate!

      Also, the look at the tech was really cool. Thanks for this and hope to see more looks at things like this. :)

      Hearing Rich's amazingly reworked version of my favorite NES music in the background of the main Kickstarter video is what got me to contribute.
      *phew* long sentence.

      I hope they release sheet music for all the music in this Shadowgate. The music for Shadowgate has always been fantastic.
