    At least four members have picked this up in the Daily Royale special, and I'll be doing so, myself! Laugh Might as well do a group play through of these first two chapters!

    Since the issue of saving seems to be a problem, I found this in a review on Steam:
    The game plays in set chapters and has an auto save feature.

    The game thread is here: Doorways

    As always, remember to put any spoilers in spoiler tags or use a light color so that we have to highlight the text to read it.  If you need further instructions, just mention it, and I'll edit them in to this first post!

    Now, if you'll excuse me... I'm off to purchase~!  Evil Grin

    Here are the controls, which CAN BE CHANGED, if you like!

    ---W---------A------S-------D
    Forward - Left - Right - Back

    Shift - Decelerate
    Crouch - Control
    Jump - Space Bar
    Inventory - Tab
    Notes - N
      Or use the direct approach: Items - I, Notes - N, Relics - R


    Push - Left Mouse Button
    Pull - Right Mouse Button

    As I mentioned, ALL of these can be adjusted in the options menu.  Personally, I changed Crouch to the down arror, and Decelerate to the Enter button.

    TO ADJUST CONTROLS:
    Go into the options menu, and use Enter button to make an adjustment.  Once you hit Enter, select the key you want to have as that control.  If you want the Enter key to be used for that action, just hit the Enter key a second time.

    Move the mouse to look around your environment.  It's a 360 degree game!

    WOO-HOO.    Happy bounce  Group  Gameplay.    This one will go so much better for me than
    the Longest Journey.

    I have already started playing and got myself unstuck.

    Here is a hint for anyone who has already started playing,  has gotten past the
    tutorial and is on their murky way.

    spoiler:
    You will eventually get a torch.  When you light it,  move as
    quickly as possible to find the next torch to light it.

    I am stopping for now.  I find I must eat.   ThanksMeal

    I'm really struggling with the tutorial.   Rolling Eyes 

    I got as far as...

    Spoiler:
    the note that says to find our own way to the top. But I can't find a way to the top. I can jump on a couple of rocks to get higher, but then there's no more rocks to jump on. And I'm still nowhere near the top.   Cry

    I am soo stuck again!!   Chapter One is a doozy.   No spoiler here to say I am walking
    around in circles.     Stars


    Frodo...genki is right     We\'re Unworthy! ,  it does automatically save from where you stop.   Sweat drop 


    I am not sure if this is mentioned already,   but to put away an item in your inventory
    just Hit  Tab.

    Luvtoread, please... jump me across   Laugh 

    The W and Space Bar works, and I can jump onto some of the rocks.  But then the trail of rocks ends.  The next rock is too far away, so when I try to jump, I just fall back down to the ground.   Gah! 


    The Automatic Save must kick in, after the tutorial, cos it keeps going back to the start, for me.   Hmm...

    OK, still not started, but I took a look at the options.

    Here are the controls, which CAN BE CHANGED, if you like!

    ---W---------A------S-------D
    Forward - Left - Right - Back

    Shift - Decelerate
    Crouch - Control
    Jump - Space Bar
    Inventory - Tab
      Or use the direct approach: Items - I, Notes - N, Relics - R

    Push - Left Mouse Button
    Pull - Right Mouse Button

    As I mentioned, ALL of these can be adjusted in the options menu.  Personally, I changed Crouch to the down arror, and Decelerate to the Enter button.


    TO ADJUST CONTROLS:
    Go into the options menu, and use Enter button to make an adjustment.  Once you hit Enter, select the key you want to have as that control.  If you want the Enter key to be used for that action, just hit the Enter key a second time.

    Going into post #1 to edit this info in for quick-reference! Sunny

    Frodo, I had trouble with the jumping part, too Yeah right

    Here's what I did:  I used the mouse to look at the GROUND, and didn't make the jump until the very last second.  I got it on my second try once I started trying this.

    You don't have to start over to do this -- run through the water until you get back to close to the metal grating.  You can jump on to the rocks there a few times to get back on level ground.

    EDIT:  At the note that says to find your way to the top:
    Spoiler:
    There's a rock to the left that you can move (push) so that you can hit that first step.  Once you're up there, look at the ground and jump at the last second -- you should be able to make it!

    Genki--   Are you stuck

    spoiler:
    trying to get past the Forest and over what I can only call a poor excuse
    for a bridge?  All those wooden planks and falling into oblivion,  then trying to find another
    way around because of the creepy girl?   I thought I found another way around her, only
    to have it be a dead end.

    Frodo--I didn't realize you didn't know about that.   I thought you were not making the
    last leap at the top of those rocks.

    Nope, I got past that... and it only gets worse!  Visibility is VERY poor there, BUT, it does save periodically, so if you mess up, you don't have to go back to the very beginning Big smile

    Luvtoread, you're right - it's that last leap at top of the rocks that I can't do.   Gah! 

    I thought at first, I could use that moveable rock as a stepping stone.  But that was stupid of me - if I'm on rocks anyway, I don't have much room to move, and I certainly can't move an extra rock into place.  I just hadn't thought it through  Embarrassed 

    So I'm back to being stuck at the ghastly last leap.   Shock

    Hmm... Trying to remember.  Hmm... 

    Spoiler:
    I believe I went left and circled around behind her.  RIGHT behind her, she couldn't have been more than a pace away at that point.

    You'll come across a second girl later, and you'll turn right, then head back to the left.

    I'm starting to really enjoy this.  The part after where you are, luv, is very puzzle-driven, and that got me to thinking that where you ARE is just a different kind of puzzle.  It takes trial and error, yes, but a puzzle nonetheless.

    The next part is more logic-driven.  It was over all too soon Laugh  Now I'm stuck again, but not because I'm doing something wrong -- 'cause I can't figure out what I'm supposed to be doing!  SO, I'm taking a break to look at other things for a while Smile

    I did what you said and got past the first    EEK! .

    Now,  my second hurtle:

    spoiler:
    I keep dying where you have to jump from the top of the
    "stairs"  onto the next set of wood planks.  It just collapses when I jump
    on it

    I know I am heading in the right direction,  I even checked  on YouTube to make
    sure.  (Why is it the video walkthrough's   gameplay look so much clearer than my
    games?   Hmm... ).

    I know exactly where you are!  Here's what you do:

    Spoiler:
    You turn left and see the brittle bridge area.  Jump quickly on to that bridge part, turn to the right a bit, and jump again as soon as you can.  It took me a couple of tries, but since I'm a platform gamer from way back, I'm familiar with the "bridge that collapses under your weight in a second or two"  theme Snicker 

    EDIT: I've finished up Chapter 1!  The final area there is where I finally started feeling creeped out. *shiver*  I'm enjoying it more and more!  Gonna stop playing for tonight to give y'all a chance to catch up!

    I hope that you're OK with your coordination, Justie!  There are parts where you have to be precise where you land or get things done quickly! OH!

    I'm not going to spoil anything here, but I will say that as of chapter 2, you finally have a reason to use the right mouse button (pull) and the S button (back up). 

    I really want to talk about this chapter, but I dare not say anything else, lest I ruin what's to come for y'all! Elk grin

    EDIT: And I'm stuck again Laugh  I seem to be missing something, but I can't figure out where to look... Will wait a while before I go back to it, so that I can have a fresh perspective.

    genki--I was wondering if your stuck same place as I am  (not sure if this is Chapter 2 or still
    part of Chapter 1.   I think still Chapter 1 as it didn't say otherwise)

    spoiler:
    The Farmhouse.  I went into the cellar.  I have recreated all but 1 of the
    torture devices-all the while thinking this is a bad idea-and the appearance of that man
    who I suspect to be the mad Doctor was a shocker--but I cannot for the life of me find
    that last piece I need.  I seem to be going around in circles.

    I must admit I rather enjoyed

    spoiler:
    Those jumping "puzzles"--for lack of a better term--that had to
    be done in the side rooms

    I find I am enjoying this game the more I play.   I just want to get unstuck at this point.

    Yes, I really liked this part, too!  That and the part you're in now were my favorite parts of chapter 1.

    Once you finish up this area you're in, you'll start Chapter 2 Big smile
