A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

AdaGate is a 3D sokoban puzzle game within a Stargate / Portal fantasy setting. It is an elaborate example of modern OpenGL programming using the Ada language that runs on Windows, OSX, and GNU/Linux.

While searching a remote south-seas atoll for remnants of a lost American heroine, a nearly operational stargate beckons.  Transported into strange dungeons, escape will require pushing every ZPM power cell onto a socket to power up the portal system. Then, blast your two portal guns at the walls and escape through the resulting wormhole.

Escape all 4 dungeons to reach the other-worldly neptune-lake, where the level of difficulty is increased for your next adventure.

Can now use any MineCraft avatar, with several included. Simply copy to the file "skin.png" in the data directory. Toggle 3rd person using the (m)-key.   Toggle back to 1st person to more easily study your surroundings.

Runs on Windows, Mac OS-X and Gnu/Linux.
