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.

If you're a fan of spooky horror games then it's worth playing. I had a decent amount of fun and I will continue to play the others in the series.

7/10

PS: The reason it's rated low is not because of the game itself, but the developers. Apparently at first they said the rest of the chapters would be free and then they charged for them. Kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥ of them if it's true but it didn't effect me any because I got it on sale for super cheap.

Personal Rating: Good story, not a bad game, maybe a bit short
Classic Rating: ★★★✬☆

So, the first two Doorways' chapters are the beginning of an investigative story about four sociopaths: you are on the trails of the killings, trying to understand what happened and why the murderers did what they did. The story and the way it's told, is very fascinating; it's mixed by surrealism and true events/locations: you're guided through a maze-styled path and have to find your way out by recovering gears and other stuff, which are part of mini/easy puzzles.

The game is quite short, I'd say 2 hours and a half - don't look at my playtime, I farmed cards before playing and left the game open several times to do other things.

I encountered some technical problems too, not a big deal though: the menu is very slow, even in-game when you have to select items from your inventory and that is quite annoying.
I also had a very low framerate (around 20FPS) @1080p with low quality settings but also at 720p, medium quality settings - my graphic card is a Radeon HD5550, not a very good one, I know, but I think the game could be better optimized (we're not talking about a pumped-up AAA title).
Finally, moving the camera with my mouse was a bit of a pain, because it was like "swinging" around to turn 45° and I couldn't find any setting to adjust.

Verdict: Got "Doorways: Chapter 1 & 2" for FREE and I enjoyed it quite a lot, so I'm going to recommend it too.

This game.

M'aiq thinks you are thinking about buying this game.

M'aiq also thinks this one must stop thinking and start buying.


Khajiit played this game through multiple times and loved it every time. This game focuses more on atmospheric fear than jumpscares, although they are present. There were many times where M'aiq had to gather up his courage (and maybe a bit of skooma) before going into a room that obviously did not have Khajiit's best interests in mind.

Do not play with friends, you will not enjoy the fear as much as you can by playing alone. Play by yourself, play in the dark, and play play play. M'aiq will wait.

M'aiq highly recommends this game to anybody looking for more than a few jump scares.

I actually played most of this some years back - in fact, it was one of the very first games I ever played on Steam! - but alas, my laptop back then was a steaming great pile of doggy-doo, and the lag I experienced ultimately meant that I had to throw in the towel and wait for a better computer. Well, I've now owned that better computer for well over a year, so I guess the time taken to get BACK to this game doesn't quite suggest that I found it all that "compelling" the first time around.

Coming back to it though, I gotta say, it actually stacks up EXTREMELY well next to a lot of the cheap, "indie" horror games which have come out since. It's maybe never quite "inspired", but Doorways: Prelude is consistently solid. Very solid. BRICK solid. Almost the textbook definition of "solid".

So what exactly does the gameplay comprise of, you ask? Is it a traditional "survival horror", in the vein of the early Resident Evil and Silent Hill games? No. Definitely not. Is it more like a post-Amnesia: The Dark Descent "stealth horror" game, a la Outlast and Alien: Isolation? Again...no, not really, but definitely getting warmer. Is it a...gulp..."walking simulator", then? Well...hmmm...again, no. Not really. But kinda. But really kinda not, considering how many opportunities the game gives you to DIE.

"SO WHAT THE HELL KINDA HORROR GAME IS IT, THEN?!" I hear you scream, in mounting frustration. Well, hmmm...lemme think a sec...I guess it's really a bunch of quite different and varied "mini-games", and therein lies the difficulty in trying to nail it all down. This isn't a BAD thing, though, when the vast majority of said "mini-games" are actually rather GOOD "mini-games" - don't spend too long in the dark or die, find the correct path across the trap-laden floor, that kinda thing - and the overall game ultimately serves up oodles of what horror gamers generally seek the most: Spooky and interesting locations, puzzles which are challenging but not TOO tricky, and spooky atmosphere and (fairly minor) scares aplenty.

"BUT ARE THERE ENEMIES?" I hear you ask next, still not quite convinced what it is that you'll be buying if you throw down your hard-earned dosh for this game. Um...again, no easy, regular answer to this question, but my best attempt would be: Yes. Sometimes. Sort of. Though not generally in the "traditional" sense. But as I mentioned above, there's no end of ways to meet your demise, so don't fret if you're a member of the "not another ♥♥♥♥ing walking simulator" crowd. Rest assured, unless you're a much more competent gamer than myself - not hard, admittedly - you're not liable to complain that you didn't cark it enough times in the course of your play-through (which, for the record, is probably somewhere in the three to five hour range, making it kinda short but sufficiently sweet). There's certainly a fair element of trial-and-error style gameplay, though it's certainly no Limbo in that regard, and the save/check-points are frequent enough to never render it TOO frustrating in that department.

Sure, there's a few things wrong with it: It's insanely dark (I mean visually, not just tonally!), but once you crank your brightness up a little it's fine (and don't feel guilty for doing so...I certainly didn't, 'cause it really is borderline unplayable in parts if you DON'T). And sure, the whole "here's a static, cut-screen image of a spooky little girl to signify your death" thing is usually a sure-fire sign of cheap AND nasty, but somehow it seems justifiable enough in the way it's used in this game, and if you stick around long enough, you WILL encounter "enemies" which actually MOVE (but I won't spoil that for you).

So what about the price? Well, it's possibly a tad steep at ten bucks, so unless you're frankly unconcerned by such things, I'd probably wait for a sale. In any case, I'm taking it as a good sign of what's to come in the two episodes released since, and if it's any kind of incentive, I just purchased said remaining episodes on the strength of re-playing this one (granted, in a sale)! I can only assume that the games get BETTER as they progress, and if so, this is a pretty bloody good start.

Verdict: 9/10.
