The music and pixel art go well with the game's atmosphere. The puzzles require little thought, making the game akin to reading a visual novel. The visuals, however, are stunning.* Read full review

The Last Door has mystery, clues, hidden walls, locked doors, a spine-chilling soundtrack and an intriguing story that made me want to keep playing. I highly recommend the first season for those who like escape games and mysteries, and do not let the graphics disappoint you.* Read full review

The Last Door: Season One shows what is still possible in the classic point-and-click adventure genre in terms of spinning a good scary, if somewhat familiar, yarn with a low budget look that enhances the frightening experience. Read full review

You can’t really go wrong with The Last Door. Its graphics and sound make up for a great journey into a story that even Lovecraft himself would call a masterpiece. Read full review

Kain Klarden (Кейн Кларден)   October 20, 2015  (Russian)
Despite the obvious love for Lovecraft, the game not only references horror classics (which are not limited to Lovecraft and Poe), but also creates its own distinct atmosphere and storyline.* Read full review

 favorable A Most Agreeable Pastime    

Richenbaum Fotchenstein   August 9, 2017
The well-crafted atmosphere manages to carry it surprisingly far. Not far enough that it will become one of my new favorite horror and/or adventure games, but enough to make the experience a satisfying one. Read full review

Matthew Parsons   September 25, 2016
It’s like what Scott McCloud writes about the power of cartoons: you can impose yourself onto a figure without much detail. It’s a tremendously effective technique to draw on in a horror game, because it makes the terror that much more visceral. Read full review

As well as a gradually building atmosphere of tension and mystery, the game also includes a variety of genuinely disturbing events, creepy background details, gruesome tableaux, ominous locations and chilling in-game documents. This is how you make a horror game! Read full review

The game fully grasps that “the unknown” is the greatest fear in the world of Lovecraft. Each episode brings an explosion of information, but the central mystery is never revealed.* Read full review

The Last Door sells itself as a vehicle for Lovecraftianism, but it hits something very close to the feeling of The Ninth Gate. It’s wonderful, and if you like that, you should check it out. Read full review

The Last Door is definitely a “story first” adventure game, and thankfully it delivered in spades. Since it was an episodic release, it showed an obvious increase in quality as I played through each chapter one by one; often reminding me of reading Stephen King’s Dark Tower series for the first time.
