Beyond the Doorway by Mike MacDee
With the exception of a few locked doors, BEYOND THE DOORWAY is almost completely nonlinear. It relies on the player's own ability to explore, experiment, map terrain and keep records of important landmarks and items. This and the lack of a save function make it a very difficult game to complete, unless the player has several hours to kill. Even when you know exactly what to do and where to go, it takes about two hours to complete the full game.

Desperate for a decent job, Cajun cook Remy Doucet joins a crew of mercenaries sailing out to Robicheaux's Escape -- an island resort in need of a new chef. Braving the violent typhoon thrashing the sea, the group arrives safely at a seemingly deserted hotel. But it is far from abandoned: an ancient evil stirring beneath the hotel has twisted the island into a nightmare and comes closer to waking every moment. All Remy wanted was a job; now all she wants is to get back alive.

In the current build, saving isn't possible. When you die you have the option to continue the game, which returns Remy to the harbor cabin with reduced health and all her items and progress intact. Progress is lost when you restart or quit the game.

- An entire island resort to search and explore from top to bottom

- Terrifying atmosphere: rain spatters gently on the grass, rolling thunder growls overhead, a second set of footsteps sends you running from the house!

- Haunting soundtrack: eerie music that turns frantic when danger is near

- Stock a small inventory with weapons, tools, and keys: manage your items well to avoid backtracking

- Read lost notes and journal pages for chilling clues to the hotel's history

- Horrid creatures lurk in the shadows: random encounters give you second thoughts about walking around the next corner or entering a room

- Choose your game length: do you gather your friends and escape? or stop the evil on the island first?

- Taxing riddles and puzzles hide the island's secrets

- Enlist the aid of three rough allies...if you can save them in time

- Multiple endings: does anyone survive? whose sanity is intact?
