The Last Door: Collectors Edition Overview and Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers (Kyo Akiara) here to bring you our latest review for The Last Door: Collectors Edition by The Game Kitchen and Phoenix Online Publishing. I received a copy of the game for review purposes a long time ago, but like all of my reviews, this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game. This is also a slightly improved version of a review that I wrote on my old website Universal Gaming Reviews.
The Last Door is a pixel art styled point and click adventure game that takes a lot of inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe. In this review I’m covering the Collector’s Edition for the first season of the series which has new game elements, enhanced graphics, remastered sounds and other extras.
Season 1 consists of 4 episodes and follows the story of Jeremiah Devitt who receives a startling message from a long time friend Anthony Beechworth. Jeremiah sets out on a journey to uncover what had happened to his friend and to ultimately solve a mystery from when he was a young man, growing up in a boarding school. The truth is much darker than Jeremiah remembers but he is determined to find the answers no matter the cost to his sanity.
The game features many puzzles for you to solve throughout the course of the game but the puzzles are quite a bit easier to figure out than most adventure games that I’ve played, but it makes progression through the game that much quicker. During conversations you’ll often be able to choose from various options to advance the conversation and to learn a bit more about your surroundings and the characters in question. Some conversations will also give hints to story related objects that you’ll need to find as well.
Overall, The Last Door: Collector’s Edition has been an excellent journey and one that I can’t recommend enough. The game features an excellent and quite demented storyline, an excellent and atmospheric soundtrack and some very crisp pixel art graphics. Well worth picking up if you’re a fan of H.P. Lovecraft or Edgar Allen Poe.
Thanks for reading our short review for The Last Door: Collectors Edition folks and I hope this has shown some insight on the game and its features. Ill be back with our next review for Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
