Doorways OS is a nostalgic world with a contemporary story. It’s an open-world-ish, operating-system-ish, narrative-ish, retro-ish game that sits in a floating world of old-but-not internet culture that has and hasn’t existed.
Studio Vaporgoth wanted to make an accessible game that provided the same feelings of discovery and trepidation of exploring the internet independently as a teenager going down late night rabbit holes and finding communities. The standalone demo version takes approximately 30–40 minutes to play through.
