Does Shadowgate need Next Gen graphics?

I don’t think this new Shadowgate will sell.

What made Shadowgate work so well, in great part, was the triggering of imagination. Those are not just walls. They are cold slabs meticulously chiseled by dwarves in the far kingdoms. That is not just an arrow. It is an Arrow made by elvish craftsmanship. Everyone underestimates the writing and Shadowgate had very good writing. “Death to the philistine!” I always laugh when I hear that.

The graphics leave less to the imagination. That is why it won’t work.
