Okay, Doorways Is Scaring Me

By Jim Rossignol on August 5th, 2013 at 1:00 pm.


Doorways is apparently “a survival horror game in which nothing is what it seems.” But I am pretty sure that what I just saw in that trailer was pretty scary. If it seems scary, then it is scary. Or perhaps just gross: that bit with the wheel is just unpleasant. Anyway, Doorways is an Argentinian videogame which seems to slot right in to a particular place on the shelf of videogame toe-curling which we’ve enjoyed so much these past years. It also threatens to hold hands with the first-person puzzle genre, as the devs explain: “From simple mind puzzles to timed and agility demanding situations, each level or scene in the game presents to you a different gameplay obstacle to overcome.”

That trailer lies beneath.

WooooOOOOOOooooo. It’s on Greenlight.

    Is that the voice actor who played Alexander in Amnesia the dark descent?

    • MrThingy says:

      Hah! Was just about to post the same question!

    • SunshineDeathray says:

      Huh. Good ear. I never played that far into Amnesia, so I can’t tell how unique his voice is. That could either be good voice acting or terrible voice acting imho
      From their website/ blog:

      The great voice of Sam A. Mowry is now part of Doorways.
      He is the voice of “Alexander” in “Amnesia: The Dark Descent” and now he is “Thomas Foster” in “Doorways”.

    Can you please stop posting articles on games that don’t exist yet. Or at least stop writing about them in the present tense.

    EDIT: replying to hk

    I agree. But you know, hype. Part of what makes gaming a business.

    I wish my heart was strong enough to survive playing games like this.

  6. misterT0AST says:

    That voiceover sounds very familiar. But the real question is, what does a hero truly need?

  7. HothMonster says:

    Well if “nothing is as it seems” and the game seems scary it must actually not be all the scary.

  8. minkiii says:

    I like the look of the atmosphere in this one… I wonder if the grim wheel part is optional? This looks enticingly spooky all the same.

      I lol’d when you did this for the driving game, but if you’re just going to do it for _every_ game you’re really going to run the joke into the ground.

    • Sparkasaurusmex says:

      Perhaps next time there is going to be a trigger warning there should first be a trigger warning that there will be a trigger warning, in case the trigger warning triggers this reaction.

    That voice… “Cloak engaged”.
    i wonder if it is the same VA who voiced Alexander in Amnesia too, hmm…

    If the devs can pull this game off with enough attention to detail and near flawless game play mechanics; it could be a potential competitor to the stuff frictional games pulls off.
