Shadowkeep is probably up there with the likes of Murder and Daffy Duck for titles that people desperately want to find. It is a game from way back in 1987 time (or approximately) and was an amazing-looking adventure game according to accounts.
One such person, David Stein, remembers clearly of visiting his local game store and seeing the game running on a Commodore 64. The shop keeper demonstrating would not allow anyone to play as it recorded the actions of the player onto the game disk. Apparently the game looked fantastic.
David saved all his money up to buy the game, but sadly by the time he had enough the store had closed down.
What is particularly odd is that this game should have been a high profile release, but it cannot be found anywhere. It is believed that the game did get a release, and may not quite be a GTW. But its a search we are relishing in the hope of bringing it home.
The game has apparently surfaced a few times, including once back in 2001.. but hasn’t been seen since. An Apple II version was also mistaken to be the C64 version, causing hysteria at first. It seems like this is out there, but we just need to find the little git…
Can you help us preserve it?… do you own it?…
