In an echo from beyond the Veil, Phoenix Online Publishing and The Game Kitchen sent forth an unworldly and non-Euclidean announcement that the hit indie point-and-click horror adventure The Last Door: Season 2 – Collector’s Edition released today for PC, Mac, and Linux. The sequel to Season 1’s “love letter to Lovecraft”, the new 4 episode collection of the low-res graphics, high suspense horror delves further into the madness of the Veil and introduces new characters, a larger world, more puzzles, new mysteries, upgraded art and effects, and even more gameplay, plus exclusive bonus content. Season 2 is available now for $9.99 on the Phoenix Online Store (store.postudios.com), Steam, the Humble Store, GOG.com, and other online retailers, as well as a bundle of both seasons at a 10% discount.
As Dr. John Wakefield, psychiatrist to Season 1’s protagonist Jeremiah Devitt, players will set out in search of his missing client and soon be drawn into the haunting web of forbidden knowledge, madness, and a deeper conspiracy hiding it all. As the search moves beyond England, can Jeremiah be found? Or will Wakefield merely find that he, too, is about to become lost in the search for the Last Door?
“We’re truly humbled by the support of the fans who have helped us in crafting this story, and we believe we’ve managed to create an epic conclusion to the series for them,” says Mauricio Garcia, CEO of The Game Kitchen. “We believe it’s time to finally meet what’s waiting for you beyond the Veil.”
The Game Kitchen has been developing and releasing The Last Door with their own unique crowdfunding subscription-based model on their website, where players have had early access to beta builds. The community feedback has been a part of shaping the game from the very beginning of the first Season.
The first season of The Last Door: Collector’s Edition, released in 2014, included all four episodes as well as exclusive bonus content and became a best-selling retro-themed horror adventure, earning high marks from fans and critics alike. A “love letter to Lovecraft”, players stepped into the shoes of Jeremiah Devitt to explore ancient mansions, decaying tenements, and the twisting, fog-filled alleys of London in search of memories Devitt had forgotten, but which had driven an old friend to suicide. Season 1 is available for PC, Mac, and Linux, as well as on mobile platforms for iOS and Android.
