From the creative mind behind The Adventures of Shuggy comes an exciting new retro-styled 2D platformer, a winner of Dream Build Play 2012. GameZebo gave it 5 stars and called it "An inter-dimensional 8-bit masterpiece" while Rock Paper Shotgun described it as "a genuinely smart, incredibly challenging puzzle platformer, that’s just packed with ideas and extremely well executed".

Grab the gateway guns and explore a huge lab filled with mysterious puzzles in this classic platforming adventure. Use gateway technology to leap from one place to another, change size to explore small passages or defeat large enemies, walk on walls and ceilings to reach new areas and even travel in time to work together with past echoes of yourself.

Move seamlessly between different areas of the vast labyrinthian map with no waiting for loading screens as you explore and discover new power ups. Use each of your new abilities to progress further, unlock shortcuts and find even more power ups.

Yes, this is an unfortunate mishap. The new version which appeared is in fact a very old version of Gateways. I'm working on getting the version removed. I explained exactly what has happened in my blog:

May sound like a dumb question but if you have bought this on Steam, is it possible to have a Desura version somehow?

I don't know but, to prevent this in the future, I recommend always checking whether it's possible to buy via IndieGameStand. They'll give you Steam and Desura keys AND the option of their own direct downloads.

Hi, I purchased the full version and I'm getting a 'No suitable graphics card found' error when trying to run.

I've had this issue before with a couple of other games and Google referenced the problem to be as simple as toggling the 'Reach' option in XNA.

Since I'm using a seven year old AGP card I don't suspect many others with my same issue but if it doesn't affect the features or quality of the game would it be possible to adjust for the next update?

Unfortunately it's not as simple as just switching it to 'Reach'. The 'Reach' profile doesn't support a large number of features that the 'HiDef' profile does. Features which Gateways uses. I've looked into adding support for Reach before but I couldn't find a solution (it's mainly to do with the lighting used in the game). Sorry!

So I guess that I somehow am downloading the demo even though I have the full game option selected. Anyone know what to do to stop this?

Sorry to hear that. Can I ask if an error box was shown?
