Welcome! I am Morak, the only wizard powerful enough to have summoned the Gauntlet. This astral manifestation of my powers is a trial where only the strongest will prevail. Find the 3 Lost Shards of Tyrfing and bring them to me, and I will grant you power and riches unimaginable. no one has ever managed to acquire all the shards. I don't expect you to make it, but go on, amuse me!

Plot[edit | edit source]

For ages, fool-hardy adventurers have been lured by promises of countless treasures in the depths of the Gauntlet, yet none have ever made it out alive. The corrupt wizard Morak conjures minions and devious traps against would-be champions and taunts them all along the way. But a new group of heroes looks to succeed where all others have failed.

Warrior, Valkyrie, Elf, and Wizard – each has their own reason for entering the Gauntlet but all four are bound together for one goal: to survive the Gauntlet and claim the ultimate prize!

Development[edit | edit source]

Gauntlet is a completely modernized and updated version of the classic 1985 Atari game of the same name. The new Gauntlet was created and developed by Arrowhead Game Studios and published by WB Games. It was released on September 23, 2014. (The original release date was September 3, 2014.)

On October 9, 2015, Arrowhead Game Studios announced the end of any further Gauntlet development.[1]
