It’s that point you reach in a game where you’re about half way and stuck.
You’re going around in circles and no matter what you can’t seem to find the key to get through the door which is going to unlock the rest of the game for you.
Maybe it’s that key I discarded earlier in the game?
Or it could be right in front of me but I’m just not seeing it?
At any rate I’m stuck and I know it.
I keep walking around and sometimes, for the briefest moment I find something that seems like the answer, riding on the feeling of accomplishment it gives me before coming to the realisation that it wasn’t that at all.
Other times all I find are enemies that I have to fend off.
I’ve been stuck on this level for a while and part of me is wondering if I will ever find the key.
Have I missed my chance?
Is it now somewhere beyond my reach?
