Storyline of “The Last Door”
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. From the beginning, 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
mansion, seeking clues to unravel the terrible mystery behind his
own past and the fate of those closest to him.
In the second chapter, Devitt 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 Devitt 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.
In the third chapter, Devitt avoids an inevitable
death and ends up in the foggy London, where he will have to face
new and intriguing obstacles, puzzles, obscure characters and dark
secrets in a completely new gloomy scene: Old Nichols Slum. Will
Devitt be able to finally place together his crude memories and
discover the horrible secrets of his past?
