Exactly what sequel is this for?

The NES version published back in 1989. The design document for the original Mac (and NES) version has been brought to life in this new Beyond Shadowgate game.

Is this related to the Turbo version of Beyond Shadowgate

No. This is tied to the NES version. The Turbo version was done for NEC and we weren’t really involved.

Is the cartridge playable?

It is not. That would require us reprogramming the code from scratch and that just isn’t on the table at this point.

Will the Hint Walkthrough feature anything other than hints?

Yes! We will include pages from the original design document and anything else we can come up with!

Will this game eventually be released on any of the consoles?

We are definitely looking into that but the game would have to be quite successful to consider. We’re a small team after all!

I see you have stretch goals for The Uninvited and Deja Vu. How will those work exactly?

From within the Beyond Shadowgate (BSG) game, there will be portals to those worlds. You’ll get a chance to solve puzzles and mysteries there that will carry back into BSG!

Why are there digital tiers with add-ons?

Because we messed up the original digital tiers and they didn’t allow for any physical add-ons :P

So if you are an Early Bird backer and want physical add-ons, just ping us and we’ll make sure you get those :)

Will we get a DRM-FREE version?

Yep! It’s added to everyone who is getting a Steam version!

When can I pledge to add-ons?

You will be able to select Add-ons after you check out. ALSO, when we send you the final backer survey, no matter what tier you pledged to, you can see and pledge to the current Add-ons or any additional ones we create. :)

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
