BackDoor- Door 1

Author Comments

After an indefinite amount of falling you find yourself in a strange house. The only person who might know what is truly going on is a mysterious individual who contacts you over the phone. Only by solving puzzles and overcoming barriers can you hope to escape.

Controls are listed by mousing over the controller symbol on the top right corner of the game screen. They are also listed below:
Arrow Keys- Movement
Z- Action
X- Use Item
C- Swap Item
Space- Menu (Can swap and combine items here)
0- Mute
+/- - Adjust Volume

(This is actually the first in a series of games that I want to work on. Originally this was going to be one large game, but it was decided that it made more sense to split it up into parts. Hope you enjoy the first part!

Also keep an eye out for Easter Egg things.)

EDIT: Here's a walkthrough for those who need it- http://solarvagrant.newgrounds.com/news/post/847746

EDIT 2: Now with configurable controls!


I'm WASD mode. But what little I didn't like about the controls was fully made up for with good game play and intriguing story line. Looking forward to the sequel.

I've been working on Door 2 for a while now, but a load of real-life events have slowed down work on the game. Right now I'm shooting for the next game to come out by the end of this year.

I love this game, I have played it a few times over the last couple of years. Are you still planning to continue the series because it would be a shame to abandon this, I am genuinely intrigued to find out what happens next.

Oh geez, sorry I missed your question! I've fallen out of the habit of checking my account on Newgrounds. I need to log in more often here.

I definitely am continuing the series. Right now Door 2 is a little over halfway done. Development has been a bit slow lately, but I've been starting to ramp up production now that I have more free time. I want to say that I'm shooting for the next game to come out by the end of this year.

Great game! I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Great game, like everyone else I found the use of the Z in the menu a little too convoluted, but not impossible to understand, it just needs some smoothing out. Other than that I genuinely enjoyed the story and characters, as well as the humor. The artwork in the cut-scenes is really well done and appealing. It could do with more sounds and music in the future. Hope to see this project till the end! Keep up the good work!
