Gateway II

leave a comment »

Gateway II was created for the second Casual Gameplay Design Competition and won the runner-up prize. It implements the “grow” theme of the competition in what I think is a very clear and creative way. You begin in a stark room empty of everything but a television set and four doors. These gateways open one by one as you collect information about the game’s characters and plot.

The puzzles are pretty classic, and if you’re an avid adventure fan it’s likely you’ll have come across some of them before. And though some of them may be a bit finicky, they are all logical in their way. The atmosphere is chilly, and there is a creepy, voyeuristic feel to the game that fits the story perfectly. Gateway II is not terribly long, so if you’re in the mood for something short and interesting, give this one a play.
