Spain – June 21th, 2013 - Independent game
The Game Kitchen is excited to release a new
The Last Door, an episodic point-and-click
adventure game featuring stylish low-res graphics and a foreboding
orchestral soundtrack, for PC, Linux & Mac and other
flash-enabled devices. The game was successfully funded on
Kickstarter in late 2012, and
has now released two full chapters to the public.
The Last Door boasts uniquely exaggerated pixel-art
style graphics with an exquisite soundtrack to create a vivid world
players can use to immerse themselves in the dark and twisted
point-and-click horror-adventure. The spine tingling story
unfolds chapter by chapter, allowing players to join in at any time
to unravel the harrowing mystery behind The Last Door.
The story follows Jeremiah Devitt, a University
professor of Philosophy, who receives a distressing letter from an
old childhood friend. Jeremiah returns to the manor of his friend
to confirm his suspicions that something terrible has happened.
Jeremiah will have to explore the deserted and unnerving
mansion, seeking clues to unravel the terrible mystery behind his
own past and the fate of those closest to him. In the
latest chapter, Jeremiah visits the boarding school he and his
friend attended when they were young. The school has since
become a hospital assisting the care of terminally ill patients.
As Jeremiah continues his dangerous journey, he begins to
suspect that there's more to the hospital than meets the eye, and
nothing is what it seems. Can Jeremiah place together his
crude memories and discover the horrible secrets of his past?

A distinguishing feature of The Last Door is
it’s unique development philosophy, which plans for all
chapters of the game to be free to the public eventually. As
a new chapter arrives, it is available exclusively to paying
backers for a limited time, as previous chapters are then free to
the public. The game and its development process are also
designed to take feedback from players. “We loved
getting feedback from players and adapting the game based on their
suggestions,” states lead developer Mauricio Garcia.
“In the previous beta for chapter 2 we allowed people to
suggest various objects and dialog, the chosen suggestions were
added in the final game, and the people who made the winning
suggestions were placed in the credits.”
The Last Door is currently available to the public via

of exclusivity to backers, the first chapter is currently free to
