Shadowgate is a storybook game in which you wake up in front of a big castle and must make your way through it solving a variety of puzzles.

This run, created by the previous author, Randil, along with a player making his TAS debut, ZenicReverie, is 31.53 seconds faster than the previous run of the game. The improvements come from getting the staff through an item overflow glitch, a new route, abusing how the sphinx question works (involving the broom), abusing that some rooms don't drain torch charges, and more minor improvements. For more details, please see the authors' notes.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
