What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been developing Doorways chapters since 2011. Two games have been release already at the store (Doorways: Prelude and Doorways: The Underworld).

But this last episode (Doorways: Holy Mountains of Flesh) has an important improvement in content and because of this we want to have early feedback from fans from the genre to deliver a better game.

Another reason for the Early Access is that we made an important change in technology when we moved the project to the engine Unity 5. We think it's better to have it tested by all the interested gamers before a final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're not completely sure. But we think it maybe take about 6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The game is separated in 3 Acts, and there's also an intermediate scenery in common which will be played between each Act.

The Early Access will start with the first Act.
And we almost have the intermediate scenery as well.

We want to deliver the intermediate map and the second Act during Early Access. Then continue working in the third Act to publish the full game at the store.

The full version will have the three Acts included as well as all the improvements we can make from the feedback received by the community.

For more updates in development, we have a dev-blog here:
http://saibotstudios.tumblr.com/”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access is a full-basic-feature first Act of the game.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“During Early Access the price may vary. This depends on how much additional work we have to do during the feedback received.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to have a better game so the community can ask for new features if they wish to. As long as this features are in our possibilities, we'll be adding them to the game.

From previous games, we made some important changes in quality but this things could be also tested by all the interested gamers.”

About This Game

General Information

Juan Torres and his family were the target of an uncountable number of rumors and several disappearances that took place in El Chacal, a small village of around 4,800 inhabitants, located in the arid mountainous region of Salta, a province of Argentina.

Among the stories spread around the surrounding villages, legends involving cannibalism, black magic, sects and all kinds of superstitions were heard.

It was also said that Juan Torres was the heir of a large fortune and, somehow, with no claim raised against him, he and his family managed to control the entire town and establish their own law.

The family was made up of Juan, Celia Torres and his only child, Jeronimo.

Doorways Prelude was absolutely wondeful back in 2013 - it was very much the pace setter for a great number of indie horror titles which followed, and was steeped in originality and genuinely chilling content. For a low-budget horror game, it was basically flawless.

Its sequel, Underworld, threw away every ounce of ingenuity and decided to copy all the other horror games - we had a bunch of Slenderman-esque chaser sequences and that nightmare 'maze' which might go down as some of the worst game design I've ever suffered.

Unfortunately Saibot just ignored any critical comments from those who'd been disappointed by the sequel, and provided no support or answers.

Ergo I was wary about going anywhere near them for Holy Mountains of Flesh, especially after the early access version had been merely 'ok' and had failed to actually follow on from the previous game at all.

I needn't have worried - I took the risk on this, needing something new to play, and so far it has erased the memory of Underworld, and while not quite reaching the heights of the original, comes pretty close.

Once again you are private investigator Thomas Foster (brilliantly voiced I have to say) of the psychic detective agency Doorways, and once again you are in the mind of serial killers to find out what really happened. Sort of - that part of the original game doesn't seem as well fleshed out (pun not intended) and you don't really feel like you are in their mind now, but more an observer looking into some parallel dimension where these crimes and their echos still exist.

But the horror, feel, look, and general psychological immerson from the original games is back, and while you will rarely be terrified here, you will find yourself engaged. Everything Underworld got wrong is erased here, and there are some really good moments in this, with the feel of the mountainous village of hell really working well - you feel like you're in a hell, and it's intense.

I have not finished the whole game, but thus far I'm pretty impressed by what I'm seeing here.

Saibot's customer care could be a lot better, and their consistency is lacking, but when they get it right, it really is worth your time.

Reminiscent of Amnesia. Full of creepy atmosphere and haunting visuals.

Positives:
+ Imaginative hellscape.
+ Pretty fast loading times.
+ Accurate representation of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Negatives:
- Random framerate drops. (50 drops to 10 fps on a HD 4400 Graphics card.)
- Sluggish mouse movement. Turning and stopping seems delayed. (Turning off V-Sync fixes this.)
- Accurate representation of Salt Lake City, Utah.

As usual the Doorways games are filled to the brim with atmosphere and ambience. From the main menu you're already being put at a slight bit of unease from the sounds; once you get into the game things are both eerily calm; yet will with a sense of dread.

I simply cannot praise the great atmosphere enough. The games have never been about action, or junk scares. Instead you set off as an agent to always solve the strangest and most mysterious of cases. As such the game might seem slow paced, and it certainly takes some time to get into the thick of things.
Despite that though, they never disappoint, it always feels like you're playing the paranormal version of the X-Files. You're on edge, surrounded by the complete unknown, and seemingly impossible at times; and yet you need to keep going forward to try and find the truth.

In a strange sense, it's almost like a Point n Click adventure, but that's a gross generalisation. Sure you need to find clues, and items to aid you; and you do spend a heck of a lot of time simply looking at everything and trying to see if you can interact with it. But that's simply because as an investigator you Have to, how else will you find out just what's afoot.

Here and there you find notes and files, and the narration for these are simply well done. The voice actor chosen does a great job, and certainly fits with the surroundings and feel the game goes for.

Also it won't be a horror game without some heart pumping moments, and while some are a little jump scary ( namely the flashbacks/projections ), the game does well at making things feel more urgent and tenser as you delve in deeper.

Quite early on you meet a rather nasty creature. It's just lying there, and due to the music and ambient sounds it's simple twitching and later movements certainly gave me a little start.

Without those it would have had little effect.

The story is very interesting, as all the Doorways games I've played are. If you do like things similar to the X-Files, and like a slow to moderately paced horror mystery game this is certainly a game, and series you should not miss out on.

PC Gameplay of the start

The title for this game is horribly misleading as none of the doorways I've gone through have lead to a set of ♥♥♥♥. Lack of breasts aside, the perversely tragic story of the Torres family is incredible, and incredibly disturbing. A dark, frequently unnerving and occasionally terrifying environment serves as it's perfect match. Doorways has an excellent concept and offers plenty of e̶n̶t̶e̶r̶t̶a̶i̶n̶m̶e̶n̶t̶ heart stopping, panic stricken moments. Everything from the atmosphere, graphics, and puzzles are great. The story is disturbing and unpredictable. Some of the puzzles are too easy, but that is par for the course in this genre.

Posted: October 3, 2015
I read all the materials available in the game and honestly, I couldn't give you a super-straightforward explanation of exactly why my character was there, at that time, running around dodging hellish monsters without completely breaking down. After playing through a bit of the game by myself I started playing in tandem with a friend and we both more stumbled our way through solutions to the crazy puzzles(?) and survived encounters more by accident than on purpose. The end encounter particularly was a bit silly as your survival really depends more on your means than your solution. The important question: "Was I scared?" Oh yes. Several, several times and the atmosphere was in places well done. The design overall was remarkably a bit too dark, possibly, but that, I imagine, is more a preference. Ultimately I bought this game well understanding it was early access and for the decent price and the updates to come if you understand the circumstances it's worth an experience - just make an educated purchase.

Doorways: Holy Mountains of Flesh is horror adventure that you will enjoy freaking it out.

Graphic is melted perfectly with game atmosphere, every aspect of it was designed to give you ultimate horror experience.

Sound is spooky all the way, music is just perfect horrorlish that will keep you creepy all the time.

Gameplay as it says is featuring a complex story, best thing is that you get to know with previous releases and watch intro to get you familiar what you need to do. No its not uber-hard just complex :)
So you will find yourself walking around, collecting items, but where and how to use them, its only up to you to find out. No izzii pizzii tutorials or hints what to do, will make you get deeply in to the game, often freaking you out with scary pop- ups.
If you are in horror adventure games this title will meet all your needs.

However I do find lacking of objects interaction for now, but knowing it is still in Early Access and developers are friendly to hear any suggestion, Im sure there will be improvement in that field.


Overall: 9/10

Sound: 10/10
Graphic: 8/10
Gameplay: 8,5/10

I strongly recommend this game to all horror lovers, and to everyone who have strong stomach and spare money to try something new.

Extreme Horror, Extreme Gameplay!

VRGR - 08/10

The game is quite "Thrilling and Scary". Just 15 mins of gameplay and this game has proved itself. Just amazing.
A little more development and a little more perfection, the game will rock the market.

I hate these games
Why do I even try ;_;

Still a nice game, not a jump-scare simulator peace of ♥♥♥♥ like so many other "horror" games
Good graphics comparing to other games of the genre but could be a bit better optimized
Good sounds and atmosphere
Puzzles aren't that hard or boring
Notes read themselves and in a sexy voice lol

The atmosphere for this game is amazing! The fear produced goes well beyond your typical jump scares. The navigation and puzzles were difficult enough to make the game interesting, but not so difficult as to leave you feeling salty and frustrated. It was really easy to immerse yourself into this world and you can almost feel someone breathing down your neck around every corner. By the end of the first part, I found myself aching for more content. Can not wait for full release!! A must have for all horror game collectors.

For an Early Access game, Doorways seems to be done very well. I can't wait for them to release the other acts to follow after this one of course. It's more of a psychological horror because it puts things in places that aren't really there as per typical psychological horror games. The lighting plays a big part in this game and seems to be done very well in using it.
