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 I’m also sharing (unpublished before :D) some drawings that I done at that time, which turned out to be part of the final chapter of the saga.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:

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! :)

Este título composto pelos dois primeiros jogos da série marca o início de um suspense promissor. Apesar da atmosfera do game não ser tão pesada quanto se espera de um jogo de terror de alto nível, os cenários e quebra-cabeças fazem sua parte no que se refere à tensão proposta ao jogador, causando aquele velho e bom sentimento de medo. Mulheres gritando, escuridão, risos anônimos e sons perturbadores são outros fatores que contribuem fielmente ao propósito principal de ambos os capítulos. A iniciativa da novela é excelente e a produtora acertou em cheio no seu trabalho, considerando não ser um software muito bem optimizado, Doorways é uma aventura inesquecível e muito bem bolada, um título necessário aos amantes do gênero.

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.

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

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.

Overview
Well, where to begin? Doorways: Chapters 1 & 2 (now called Doorways: Prelude, apparently) is an exploration, puzzle solving horror game, that relies on darkness to confound you, while playing as a character who is after people in some alternate dimension.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t do much well.

It’s yet another horror title in what is seemingly becoming a bigger and bigger genre.

Pros
  • Graphics are decent
  • Voice acting is surprisingly good for a low budget indie horror game
  • Imagery is astounding, from the torture dungeon to the malformed humans
  • It’s over quick and has easy achievements if you’re an achievement hunter
Cons
  • Far, far too dark; darkness is excellent in a horror game, this one just uses it excessively
  • Puzzles are extremely easy, made harder by the near pitch blackness (I rarely turn my monitor brightness up; this game had me increasing it both from within game and the actual monitor controls)
  • Not much to the environments, they’re all pretty basic
  • Inventory system is clunky
  • Chapter 1’s torch is the most useless torch in the history of gaming, whether by design or anot
Summary
Doorways: Prelude has a few things going for it, with some genuinely disturbing imagery at parts, but it’s overall another sub-par horror game, that relies on complete blackness to make its easy puzzles harder. I completed it in roughly 80 minutes, with the remainder of my time played allowing the game to run to get the final two card drops.

I picked this up in a bundle at some point along the way, and for the price, it was well worth it. I wouldn’t suggest buying this on its own, unless you’re very hard up for a horror game. But if you’re hard up for a horror game, there are, literally, hundreds of other titles far more deserving of your cash.
