FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*

has joined today Valve’s Steam Greenlight

Spain – November 6th, 2013 - Independent game company The Game Kitchen is excited to announce that the first season (including the first three chapters) of The Last Door an episodic point--and--click horror adventure game featuring stylish pixel--art graphics and a foreboding orchestral soundtrack, for PC, Linux & Mac, has taken today to Steam Greenlight.

The game’s first episode was successfully funded on Kickstarter in late 2012, and after the recent launch of the third chapter (The Four Witnesses) has now three full chapters to the public. If the game passes the Steam Greenlight community voting process, the indie studio will gather and pack up the first three installments of the saga in a First Season, a standalone special edition of the game, compiled together with many enhancements. This new milestone in the trajectory of the game it’s really important since it means a solid step forward towards the funding of the upcoming episodes of the game.

Currently, the saga of “The Last Door” counts with two free chapters available to the public and the third one available upon any donation towards the development of the fourth installment which is now in the middle of a crowdfunding campaign. While all that is going on, the game has also just been added to Steam Greenlight and it’s looking for some votes.

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?

The developers would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the development of The Last Door so far. To assist in the creation of the fourth chapter, please visit their donations page.
