Default [marko river] Crystal Key

I'm looking for the title of an old Windows game that I played over 10 years ago. What I remember about it:
  • It's a point-and-click adventure game, made sometime in the late 90's or early 20's.
  • The setting is that the Earth is besieged by some sort of alien warship(s?), so you take the first ever interstellar spaceship developed on Earth and head out to seek help.
  • You crash land in forest (jungle?) on another planet and find the remains of some sort of civilization which had perfected a portal technology - portable devices that create man-sized circular portals to other locations in the universe. Then you visit several worlds through these portals.
  • One of the worlds has a jail in the middle of a desert. You also find a hologram projector there.
  • On another world you find the portal coordinates for a star - used by the people for garbage disposal.
  • In the end you get to the Evil Emperor's ship and plant the holoprojector in front of his room, but behind the projector you open a portal to the sun. So that when the emperor comes out of the room, he falls into the star.
  • Happy end!

Anyone know of this?

Sounds interesting. But I never seen this game. Let me seek internet then...
...
Hmm, found nothing. Universe seems somewhat like it, and Reah have similar technologies, but both are not _exactly_ like you described. Sorry.

I don't think it was a very highly rated game, so I wouldn't be surprised if there was hardly more than a footnote left of it in history.

Btw, the game was in the first-person perspective, so definitely not Universe. The visual style of Reah seems similar to what I remember, but the story is definitely something else.

Thanks for trying! I know that the keyword "Portal" isn't a very good one to find a game these days. The portals were the highlight of it though.

Crystal Key perhaps?

It is just something that looks like it from the few games I checked. Here, you can check on moby for windows adventure games in 1st perspective. Then you can choose a year or Sci-Fi theme, and try to narrow the game, if it is present on moby. If not, you might spot something interesting at least

That's it! It's the Crystal Key! I googled for a walkthrough and that's exactly it!

Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!

Actually, yes. But Moby shown me 2004 because it's the year of the Russian release. Hmm, I would expect earliest release to shown. Then I definitely overlooked it, due too generic description. My fault!
