Happy 5th Anniversary Doorways and Saibot Studios!

Happy 5th Anniversary, Doorways and Saibot Studios!

That’s it! Today, Saturday March 19th, Doorways turns 5 years.



More Photos on the bottom!

While the first chapter of the game was published in Desura and on our Website (using the Humble Widget) on August 15, 2013, and then the final version of the first two chapters on September 20 of the same year, that wasn’t the beginning of this adventure.

A year and a half earlier, in March 2012, we started developing the game as a team, Martin Voychisko and me, in my room in my mum’s house. (picture)
But neither was on that date the beginning of everything. Before that we made prototypes in late 2011, when I was still working at NGD Studios.

And yet, that was not the beginning. What I’m going to tell you happened exactly 5 years ago, illustrated by the first picture from the album. This is something I’ve come to find out recently, when I was looking through some photos my mother took on a trip we made to El Palmar (Entre Rios, Argentina). It was on that time when I made the first sketches of what would become Doorways (at that time it wasn’t even named that way). I’m also sharing (unpublished before :D) some drawings that I done at that time, which turned out to be part of the final chapter of the saga.

If you are interested in getting more details of the story, I encourage you to read the first entry in our development blog, in which we tell the beginning of everything:
http://saibotstudios.tumblr.com/post/76357010329/how-did-it-all-begin

----

While I believe that we become better developers as time went on, it is also worth noting that it was not easy. The developer team changed over time and those changes meant improvements, but sometimes they meant a step backwards. However, in some way or the other we’ve always managed to create something that was always better than what we had created before –we‘ve gained experience, we’ve put it into practice and we never thought in giving up.

It is truly rewarding to see what we have achieved so far in all this time :)
And I would like to thank once again all those people who have supported us: family, friends, colleagues and followers of the game.

Thank you. We’re going for another 5 years of creative madness! :)

I played around an hour in a couple chunks. So far I rather like it. Most of the complaints are that it is too dark. And it is. I don’t necessarily say it’s TOO dark with the in-game brightness settings maxed, but it’s awfully dark. Like, 60% black. You can get a torch but it only stays lit for about 10 seconds before it fizzles and you have to find another sconce to reignite it. Most of the time I didn’t bother with the torch though. Just like in real life, it kind of blinds my dark vision, because the idiot character holds it out in front of him.
So the game is horror, obviously, and it’s predicated on darkness and atmospheric noise mixed with creepy stuff like cages and spikes and a big huge pendulum blade (not moving unfortunately). And there is an occasional flashback where you see a bunch of people on spikes or a bunch of women burning at the stake or whathaveyou. The story centers on you are a detective searching out to stop some serial killers. The first chapter you are after some Professor. Story is revealed through notes you find on the ground that are narrated (well, I might add, if a little over dramatic).
The thing I like about it is that the scary/spookiness is left up to atmosphere and creepiness and not jump scares like freaking Outlast. I REALLY liked outlast but I HATE HATE HATE jump scares. I got jump scared once in this so far and not really in the same way (screen just suddenly flashed red and showed some people hanging from a tree in the distance and a little bit of a scream).
So far I have only sort of encountered a couple baddies, and they literally stand in one place. If you approach them, you “die” but really they are just creepy obstacles that make you go a different route. They are creepy though.
Game has a fair bit of platform gameplay. In one area you walk on narrow planks to cross what appears to be a bridge. Later on you have to get past spike mazes and if you jump on the wrong spot you die. They aren’t hard though, I didn’t mind them.
Occasionally it’s difficult to figure out where to go, especially with the darkness, but not usually too bad. Otherwise level design is pretty simple and straightforward. Occasionally you have to backtrack, which is annoying. Basically you come to a big locked door and you have to go down the side halls to hit a switch and then back to the big door. They aren’t too far though.
So far, I recommend it!

This game is pretty unique in itself. First of all the game does get better as you go along. The starting "forrest" area you go through is the worst and it seems like the developer learned more about how to make good levels as they went along. It was very atmospheric and creepy at times. This game is great for people that are either just getting into or not used to horror games as it's more about the atmosphere and not the running and hiding as other horror games have. It's not perfect but I would definitely recommend.

Great, short horror game that doesn't rely on cheap jump scares like most of today's "horror" games. Great atmosphere/environments, decent sound design and an interesting premise. Wish it was a bit longer, though.

Great little game, brilliant atmosphere, good design and fun but not frustrating puzzles. My only downside personally was some areas were far too dark, to the point where even at max brightness I had to fumble about to progress, otherwise no other problems and will be playing part 2 soon.

Yet again my enjoyment in a game is completely ruined because a game thinks that darkness means scary and immersive. In the last review that I wrote, The Hat Man: Shadow Ward, I did complain that the game was dark, but little I did know that there was a game WAY worse in terms of darkness. I had to literally play with the in-game brightness at 10 (maximum), my laptop brightness at 100% and still open the Intel Graphics Center and turn it up to 50 so I could play this game. How can you even play something if you're barely seeing it? How is that even fun?

Nevertheless the game is pretty simple, and it ain't bad, it's just meh, but since the only way it makes itself difficult is by using darkness, it's a bad design choice and overall lazy one. It definitely needed a bit more work. Regarding bugs and such I had no technical problems.

There is one thing though, being a dual monitor user, and playing the game in one monitor, the game never locks the mouse in it's window, so this means if the mouse pointer is on the other monitor and I click it, the game's minimized. This happened about 10 times, but it's just a slight annoyance. The game also runs well at a constant 60 frames per second.

Another problem I found is the torch. You lit up the torch and it lasts for about 10 seconds. Last time I checked that's not how torches work... And once more, the game relies on this mechanic to make itself harder, which just results in frustration.

While being short in length and having some good-looking sections (mostly in chapter 2), which are definitely ruined by the lack of lightning, I'm still intereted in Chapters 3 and 4, but it's a very "ehhhh" start for the series. #BrighterHorror 4/10

- kostenlos bekommen (lotsogg) -

Spielzeit : 2 Stunden

- tolles Leveldesign
- schöne Puzzle Elemente
- versteckte Dinge
- faire Speicherpunkte
- einfache Steuerung
- tolle Atmosphäre
- abwechslungsreich
- guter Sound
- das einzige negative ist, das es stellenweise zu dunkel ist


Doorways sticht nicht durch Ballern und Töten hervor, sondern durch reines Überleben,Gegnern aus dem Weg gehen und gut gemachte Puzzle Elemente. Obwohl die Grafik nicht mehr ganz aktuell ist, schafft das Game eine gute Atmosphäre, durch die tolle Sound Kulisse und das stimmende Leveldesign.

Für mich merkt man an jeder Stelle, das dem Entwickler wirklich nur geringe Mittel zu Verfügung standen. Wirkt alles wie ein 1-Mann-Studien-Projekt.
Die Grafik versumpft in schwammigen Texturen und enormer Dunkelheit. Sound ist auch da, irgendwie. Vom Gameplay einfach nur dürftig, Schlauchlevels ohne Ereignisse ablaufen, ein bisschen Hindernisparkour, über ein paar Stacheln hopsen, nen Hebel ziehen und mal ne Textseite aufheben. Und ein aufploppendes Mädchen kommt ungefähr so überraschend wie die nächste Steuererhöhung nach der Wahl. Es gibt viel zu viele andere Titel dieser Art, das Geld ausgeben für das hier nicht lohnt.

Was soll ich dazu sagen....eigentlich ist es Trash.

Positiv ist für mich, dass gerade Spiele mit solch minderer Qualität auf mich einen gewissen Charme haben, was sie wieder gut spielbar macht. Es gibt keine 100.000 verschiedene Waffen, Fähigkeiten oder sonst welche Zusatz♥♥♥♥e, die ich eh nicht benutzen will. Auch weiß man schon im Voraus, dass die Spieldauer überschaubar bleibt, was für mich angesichts der riesigen Spielesammlungen immer von Vorteil ist!

Negativ fällt mir sofort die VIEL zu extreme Dunkelheit des gesamten Spiels ins Auge! Natürlich soll das in nem Spiel dieses Genres so sein, aber dann doch nicht SO. Und ich weigere mich, extra für jedes Spiel die allgemeinen Grafik-/Monitor-Settings zu verändern, daher hab ichs ingame versucht und alles auf die Höchstwerte gestellt. Und trotzdem war die Sicht..."mäßig".
Als zweiter großer Punkt muss ich die wenige Action nennen - eigentlich läuft man nur unglaublich weite Wege von A nach B und sucht verzweifelt kleine Stellen, an denen man gefundende Puzzle-Teile einsetzt. Es gibt keine Schreckensmomente oder direkten Gegner-Kontakt, was es für mich einfach mehr zu einem öderen ""Adventure"" als wirklich Gruselspiel macht.
Und es ist wohl subjektiv, ob man wenige, aber dafür 15-20 Minuten-Level mag mit ausschließlich automatischen Quicksaves, die einem gewaltig ab♥♥♥♥en können, wenn man nen gewisses Achievement verpasst..:X


Die ausschlaggebenden Punkte für die dennoch positive Bewertung ist die Kurzweiligkeit, (easy )Achievements + Karten. ;->

This game relies way too much on darkness to make its puzzles way more difficult than they need to be. For example, there is a section with a memory-type puzzle, where you have to step on a grid of tiles in the correct sequence to pass. However, the floor is completely dark, so you can't even tell which tile you're standing on. Even if you've memorized the sequence, you still have to make leaps of faith in the darkness and hope you land on the right tile.

If it takes you 2 hours to solve a puzzle that could be solved in 10 seconds with the lights on, that's a pretty poorly designed puzzle.

Doorways present itself as a survival horror game but it is more about exploration than anything else.

The gameplay is pretty straight forward and too simplistic in design. Sometimes you may be required to do a little platforming as well which isn’t perfect but not too terrible either. The sections with traps requiring you to use surrounding hints to find solution of avoiding traps were particular nice. Other than such moments, most of you time you will be just going on exploration and scavenger hunts in the game. Reach from start to end and find out any items or keys that you may need to unlock the next portion of the game.

Throughout the game you can find hidden collectables called ‘relics’. These add some nice replayability to the game. The relics are well hidden and should prove a nice challenge to players attempting to gather them.

Doorways is something to look into. I loved the atmosphere, the music, and all the creepy, subtle effects. I think everything came together to create a memorable experience, in the end, despite some of the nagging issues.

Linux notes: Achievements are broken in Linux, and the devs seem to be ignoring the community calling for it to be fixed. This irks me to no end when devs do this.

Other than that, this game isn't all that scary. It's a "haunted house" game -- walk around until something pops out and goes "BOO!" The player's character is never put in any real danger.

The game is dark. I mean really dark. It's like they didn't want you to see anything. They even did that "film grain" thing a lot of dev teams do in order to gloss over the fact they copied and pasted most of the level, and are using generic textures. Darkness isn't scary if there's nothing in it.

The puzzles are extremely simple. There are unnecessary slow-paced parkour sections ... just because why not. The most interesting thing to do is searching for collectibles just to get an achievement. Lame.

That being said, the atmosphere is alright. The sound design is probably the best part of the game.

Scariness: 3/10
Gameplay: 4/10
Atmosphere: 7/10
