In case you hadn’t noticed, I kinda liked The Last Door. It’s an excellent horror series, one that tosses the dumber conventions of point-and-click games in favor of keeping the game (and the scares) flowing. Despite it’s pixellated look, it is also more than capable of leaving its players shaking, with its sharp sound design able to keep you looking over your shoulder while you play. Mechanics don’t make a horror game as much as a good storyline does, though, and The Last Door easily has one of the most intelligent, creepy stories to ever hit the genre. It’s good, is what I’m saying.
Unfortunately, the last chapter of the first season is out and done, and I’ve had no new instalments to keep me busy (scared) for a while. Luckily, the people at The Game Kitchen have come out with a Collector’s Edition of the game’s first season to entertain me in the meantime. Filled with new puzzles, scenes, and bonuses, I’m pretty excited for its release. I’m interested in seeing what new things I can find out about the game’s twisted plot from this new content, especially if it’ll help me learn more about what happened in the last chapter’s cliffhanger ending. I’d pay just about any price to have that cleared up for me.
The ten bucks it costs isn’t that bad for a completely remastered version of the game, especially considering the fact that you can get the episodes for free on their own. The devs have also said that they’re going to clean up the visuals and audio for this release, so there’s quite a bit to look forward to if you’re dying for new content in the series. It’s also a nice excuse to revisit a couple of old terrors with a friend who hasn’t tried the series, either. If I invite you over to play games with me some time in the next little bit, you may want to prepare yourself for some spooky times.
