Independent developer David Shaw is excited to announce their upcoming title The Long Gate, a challenging puzzle game where you’ll need to master the principles of circuit engineering to progress through the mystery-filled caverns.
Players are free to explore the mysterious caverns of The Long Gate on their own terms as almost all the puzzles can be completed in any order. The puzzles themselves also take a step away from the regular binary approach of a puzzle game as many of them offer multiple options for success
The ancient and alluring caverns of The Long Gate are filled with remnants of mysterious machinery. Exploring the labyrinth of caverns and interacting with this cryptic machinery will prove vital to mastering the three types of circuit-based puzzles; digital, analog, and even quantum. To ensure the quantum puzzles accurately portray real quantum circuits, developer David Shaw has partnered with the quantum computing company D-Wave.
The secret to the puzzling caverns and ancient machinery lies in the completion of the different circuit puzzles. With players free to explore how they choose and complete the puzzles the key to finding the secrets of The Long Gate rests with them.
- Challenging puzzles – cryptic puzzles built around digital, analog and quantum circuits.
- Open exploration – players can explore the caverns and complete puzzles in any order they choose.
- Underground Oasis – The caverns of The Long Gate are full of wonder and nature, providing a contrasting setting to the machine-based circuit puzzles.
- Stunning soundtrack – The Long Gate features a beautiful original soundtrack by musician Nicholas Newman.
The Long Gate will feature as part of the Steam Summer Game Festival and will offer a free playable demo between 16th of June and the 21st of June. The demo runs through the opening section of the game, providing players with an example of the thought-provoking puzzles and a slight tease to the secrets on offer in the winding caverns of The Long Gate.
