8-Bit Adventure Anthology (Volume One) gets end of October Xbox One, PS4 and PC release

Remember the glory days of videogaming? You know, 1987 and the years surrounding it? Well you’ll need to remember back no more as very soon it’ll be time to head back into the wonderful world of 8-bit gaming as three classic adventure games prepare to mesmerise a whole new generation of gamer.

The 8-Bit Adventure Anthology (Volume One) will be arriving on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come October 31st 2017, and it’ll play host to three cult classics – Shadowgate, The Uninvited and Déjà Vu.

You can thank Abstraction Games for the Anthology as it is they who are bundling together the three titles into one latest generation package. Set within the realms of fantasy, horror and film noir, these three fantastic stories are a must have for those who lived in the decade of neon and those that wish they had.

Full details of these classic games as follows:

  • Shadowgate™: The wind whistles through the silent halls as you step through the stone threshold. You’ve just entered Shadowgate, a once shining castle, now an evil, dark moldering ruin. Swallow your fear and take up your torch. You are the ‘Seed of Prophecy’ and in your hands lies the fate of the world itself.
  • The Uninvited™: The last thing you remember was a figure appearing in the middle of the road and the sound of your sister’s screams over the screeching tires. When you come to, you discover two horrifying things: your sister is missing and the mansion that now looms before you seems to be calling your name…
  • Déjà Vu™: It’s 1942 and you wake up in a seedy bathroom with no idea how you got here or, for that matter, who you are. You grab a .38 hanging on the door, stumble up the stairs and find some stiff slumped over a desk with three bullet holes in him. You check your gun. Three bullets are missing. This is gonna be a bad day.

As always, we’ll remind you when heading back to 1987 becomes a reality, but in the meantime make sure you let us know your thoughts. Are these the type of games you want to be seeing on your Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below.

Neil Watton (neil363)
An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell....probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I'll be in heaven. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.

    Simple 8-bit ports or current gen remakes???
    If simple 8-bit ports this collection better not cost more than $9.99.
