The upcoming The Long Gate is a challenging puzzle game. Since you will need to master the principles of circuit engineering. While you progress through the mystery filled caverns.
Players are free to explore the mysterious caverns of The Long Gate. Doing so on their own terms. Since almost all the puzzles can be completed in any order. The puzzles themselves also take a step away from the regular binary approach. Which is already common in the puzzle game genre. 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. So you can connect with this cryptic machinery. Due to prove vital to mastering the three types of circuit based puzzles. These can be digital, analog, and even quantum. Likewise, this ensures the quantum puzzles accurately portray real quantum circuits. Which is also why David Shaw partnered with the quantum computing company D-Wave.
