Gateways is a game by Smudged Cat Games released for PC in 2012. Set in a 2D environment, it takes inspiration from Portal. The protagonist, a scientist, finds himself locked in a lab, and he needs to find and use the various Gateway guns scattered throughout the lab to find his way out of it.

rythin ( https://tasvideos.org/Users/Profile/rythin ) and negative seven ( https://tasvideos.org/Users/Profile/negative%20seven ), however, decide to only get 2 of the normally required 4 Gateway guns, and abuse glitches to go out of bounds and help the scientist escape from the lab in record time. Please read the authors’ comments ( https://tasvideos.org/7620S ) for more details.

The authors also provide an encode showing the entire map and the player’s position marked with a yellow dot. It can be viewed right here ( https://youtu.be/sz4bqboIwP0 ).

The “Minimal Obstruction” alternate encode features completely transparent graphics related to getting a power up, with the exception of the text, as it completely obstructs the view normally, and gameplay still continues while it’s ongoing.
