Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Last Door (2014) is a point-and-click narrative game set in Victorian England where something ancient and evil is stirring. Inspired by the works of author H.P. Lovecraft, you search haunted buildings for supernatural phenomena using the items you find. It was a point-and-click narrative game ahead of its time and bears revisiting for its episodic story that creates a uniquely engaging and still chilling experience.

You play Jeremiah Devitt, who's asked by his old childhood friend to come and investigate areas of suspected supernatural activity. When you arrive, you're thrust into a series of bizarre and horrific events, with blood, suicides, killings, and demonic rituals.

You move around each location searching for items you can use to advance the story. Maybe a magnifying glass or a lantern will shed light on an unseen door. Maybe you need to delve deeper into the graveyard to discover what the crows are eating. Each chapter tells its own story but ties into the larger whole, giving the impression of an interactive TV series.

The result is a game that offers a unique blend of horror, point-and-click, and puzzle elements. As you explore the abandoned manor not only do you start to solve the mystery of supernatural happenings but also uncover long-buried secrets from your character's youth. It's a frightening yet still rewarding experience for older teens and adults.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 for Violence. There are two sequences featuring suicide. One shows a man kicking and struggling as he hangs from a noose, while the other shows a man burning to death after setting himself alight. There are also other scenes of violence, including a character flogging himself as part of penance and a priest caning a student's hand. The pixelated nature of the game means there is no sight of graphic injuries, although there is use of blood effects, including when decaying corpses are seen. In one scene the player's character agrees to give a dying person an overdose of morphine to end his suffering.
