Play OverviewPlay Overview

The White Door (2020) is an adventure that you play by exploring a room and finding and interacting with items and people. Along with its unusual black-and-white visuals, The White Door is also notable for the topic of mental health and memory loss it takes on.

You play Robert Hill, who wakes up in a Mental Health facility and suffers from severe memory loss. To do this you follow the facility’s daily routine, see his dreams and slowly aid him in getting back his memories. As you do this, an unusual challenge arises: identifying what's missing.

The game tests your willingness to trust the facility and your carers. It does this by asking obedience to ever more prosaic tasks like brushing your teeth at the same time every day. Between these tasks, you visit Robert's dreams and start to form a story of how he ended up here.

It's easy to play in terms of mechanics and puzzle challenges. What's harder is the theme and emotions. It's a game about the hope of feeling better when life has lost its colour. Can you find happiness in small things? The game handles this topic with care and creates an involved way to experience what it's like to suffer from memory loss.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked The White Door 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 4 weeks ago.
