Doors and some other stuff

by Hempuli - Game Jam Entry

This is what I managed to come up with during the extended weekend. I've had this idea for a while, and now that I have the base engine going, I'm going to work more on it.

The game has only one level and can't be 'beaten', as there's no congratulary message, but the puzzle itself can be solved, i.e. you can bring the orb to th pedestal. The puzzle's probably too hard for a starter, but I hope you have fun!

Ha, this is hard. Hmm.

Yay, I did it! This is pretty satisfying, good job and thanks for making it.

Pretty cool! Good puzzle. This could be turned into a polished game that could sell: a whole bunch of fun doors-you-can-move puzzles would be great.

Oh man, this is so hard! Really cool though, and really satisfying to complete.

Still can't beat it, but it's an awesome concept with amazing graphics. Top stuff!!

Very nice graphics and good programming (from what I can see). I haven't solved the puzzle yet, but I'll try again :).

I can get anything up to the next level except myself. Any hints?

Are you supposed to be able to bring doors through doors? If you position yourself so that you're touching the door, but the door you're holding isn't touching it much, then you can walk bring a door through.

I walked through door 1 carrying another door 1 and it caused me not to exist!

Oh, I thought I prevented one from doing that. Haha, thanks for noting, gotta fix it. Of course, bringing doors through doors might present some rather cool puzzles, but also a lot of hassle.

Alan Lynn: I'm not sure which way you got to the top, but can't you throw a door up there before getting there yourself? There's the springboard and all!

I can get a door up top fine. Then walking through the matching door would get me up there. The problem is, once I put a door up top, I don't know how to get to the matching door.

When I click your game link, it says "The website you were trying to reach is temporarily unavailable."

It's back up now.

You have to use other means than doors to get up there.

The link above is wrong. Appears to be at http://hempuli.com/DR/doooors.html now.

Oops, that seems to be the post-jam version I posted, since it has several levels (sorry!). Still, the link for the Jam version, above, isn't working for me. Did enjoy the extended version though :)
