The Last Door: Season 2

Halloween may be over, but luckily, that doesn't mean the horror has to end. Despite its name, The Last Door wasn't the last of this episodic point-and-click pixel-horror adventure, as The Game Kitchen has just announced Season 2 for PC, Mac and Linux, coming in early 2016. Not heard of The Last Door? Read about Season 1.

While the first season focused on Jeremiah Devitt, who went in search of his missing friend after receiving a letter, Season 2 will focus on Dr. John Wakefield, his psychiatrist. He, however, is going in search of his missing client, because he's clearly worth whatever Devitt was paying him. Of course, Dr. Wakefield is then drawn towards the same mysteries and conspiracies that Devitt has disappeared into, bringing all-new episodic scares along with them.

The studio has said that Season 2 will bring "a much bigger map to explore, with more characters, more puzzles, and more mysteries to solve than the previous season, which means more gameplay time." All of which will be accompanied by a new soundtrack, composed by Carlos Viola.

The Last Door: Season 2 may not be fully released until early 2016, but Episode 1, "The Playwright", is available on Steam Early Access for $7.99 USD. Or, for those still needing to experience Season 1, the Collector's Edition (four episodes, plus bonus content), is available now on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. More information on all of the above can be found on the game's website, or by following the studio on Facebook or Twitter.
