I would only recommend this game to point and click lovers. It is ugly as f***, the story is complicated (more than the first season), and the interaction is quite basic...
The paradox is that the game is not very complex in its riddles, so it is not a big challenge for the point and click fans.
In fact, I would only recommend it due to its unique atmosphere and its endearing look, or if you played season one. If you didn't, you should buy the season one at very low price first, to avoid any bad surprises.

Utterly fantastic.
I've always been a fan of point and click games, long before I had a beast of a computer to actually run real video games. A staple of this genre has always been the absurd puzzles that have you running around for twenty minutes only to discover you overlooked a key under the doormat.
The Last Door has great puzzles, a great collection of documents to read, lore to ponder, and memorable, interesting characters. And I never thought a pixel game could be that terrifying.
Best of all is that this is arguably one of the most Lovecraftian games I've ever played (faithful if you will, even if the lore is completely different). It's a good mixture of Lovecraft and Poe (Poe more so in Season 1, Lovecraft in Season 2) so if you happen to be a fan of those authors (or gothic literature in general) then this game is a must have.
A simple but marvelously well written game.

Incredibly well written and great gameplay with fantastic music and sound. I do, however, think that the 8 bit graphics detract a LOT from immersion and hamper the game in ways that better graphics would have intensified.

This is a must own for fans of Lovecraftian horror.

The Last Door: Season 2 is an episodic story-driven point-and-click adventure game developed and published by The Game Kitchen consisting of four new episodes and a continuation from where the last game (season) left off, albeit from a different character’s perspective.

In this season, the story follows John Wakefield, the former psychiatrist of Jeremiah Devitt (protagonist from Season 1), in search for Devitt after his sudden disappearance in the previous game. Along his journey, Wakefield is accompanied by his close associate, Herr Doctor Johann Kaufmann, an unfathomable German nobleman who displays a high level of expertise in the understanding of the dark forces that affected Devitt and who aided Wakefield in investigating Devitt's condition previously. Both of these characters play similar roles to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson; Wakefield is the type of character who asks the questions and Kaufmann is the one providing the answers, except in a more cryptic manner. An issue in the previous game was the lack of memorable characters, and it is safe to say that that is not the case here. The story provides quite a few twists and turns, easily making it one of the main reasons to complete The Last Door: Season 2. It even has two endings which can be triggered by the player’s choice in the last scene. Regardless of the choice, both endings provide a suitable closure to The Last Door saga.

Much like the first game, The Last Door: Season 2 uses the same pixel art for its aesthetics which is simple but surprisingly effective, making it tough to criticise it for as it does not ruin the experience in any way; the pixel hunting (another issue in the first game) has been solved this time with items which look brighter and are easier to spot in the background. On a side by side comparison, the graphics do look polished up compared to the previous game whilst still remaining faithful to the series’ unique visuals. Lighting effects seem to have improved as well. Nevertheless, it goes without saying that its visual presentation might not conform with everyone’s tastes, much like the lack of voice acting. Moreover, both the sound design and soundtrack are well implemented in the world of The Last Door and do their job enough to create a similar atmosphere found in the first game, although, in terms of ambience, it does have some moments where nothing is played in the background which is a bit of a letdown.

The gameplay remains more or less the same as in Season 1; thus, expect your typical point ‘n’ click affair where you move the character around different locations whilst collecting items, occasionally combining, and using them to solve puzzles to advance the story. Just like the first game, many areas at the start of an episode are locked, but these can be unlocked by finding keys or using specific items. One notable (and welcomed) addition in Season 2 is the world map which gives the player more locations to explore in a non-linear fashion, to an extent, rather than being restricted to one single map as in the previous season. This helps giving the game a tad more feeling of exploration and variety. The feeling of any backtracking becoming tedious is absent thanks to the small size of the maps and the quick travel mechanic which immediately transports you to the next scene.

Once again, the puzzle solving is very easy and fairly logical, making it suitable to newcomers to the point ‘n’ click genre. Veterans of the genre will undoubtedly find it very easy though. There is hardly a need of checking a walkthrough at any given point, except maybe of a specific maze-like puzzle which honestly should not take too long to figure it out after some attempts. On the other hand, the advantage of these easy puzzles is that the pace of the story remains consistent without ending up meandering around, frustratingly looking for clues on how to solve a puzzle. The most noticeable improvement between the two seasons is that the variety of puzzles has visibly increased. As a result, Season 2 is longer in length, with around 6-hours to complete it compared to the roughly 4-hours in Season 1.

The Last Door series is well known for its emphasis on tense Lovecraftian horror and disturbing atmosphere, and Season 2 follows the same trend established by Season 1. However, having played the first game, it is hard not to notice how the creepiness was toned down in exchange for, arguably, superior storytelling this time around. Season 2 definitely feels a lot more focused on filling all those gaps left in the story from Season 1 as much as possible, as there are only a handful of scenes as spine-chilling as in the first game throughout the first three episodes. Thankfully, for those who loved the atmosphere of the first game, the last episode is a return to that specific atmosphere fans were accustomed. To provide some context, in the first game there were many moments where certain “supernatural” events would catch you off guard from time to time and created this tense, scary atmosphere as you did not know why those events were occurring initially. There was always a sense of mystery and intrigue. Furthermore, the use of imagery and disturbing backgrounds were also key to their effectiveness. In Season 2, as the story advances, you progressively get to discover, little by little, why these, although not all, events occurred and who is behind them which eventually becomes less terrifying the more you find out. The point I am trying to make is that, personally, I did not feel creeped out by Season 2 as much as I did in the first game which, for me, is somewhat disappointing since that is one of things I hoped the sequel would keep and even improve upon. However, in the end, I strongly feel that Season 2 is superior to the first season as a whole experience due to the small improvements made, here and there, and the better storytelling despite the toned down atmosphere. Do not get me wrong, it still has its petrifying moments, like the ending of the second episode.

In conclusion, The Last Door: Season 2 might lack the overall eeriness of the first game, but it compensates in polished up gameplay, crispier visuals, better variety of puzzles and superior storytelling that provides a satisfactory conclusion to The Last Door saga. Probably not as memorable as the first game, but definitely better as a whole package. Highly recommended to folks who finished the first game, any point 'n' click fans, and those who like Lovecraftian horror stories in general. If you are entirely new to this series, do yourself a favour and grab The Last Door bundle and enjoy the ride.

Absolutely amazing and gripping game/story. While not every puzzle is perfect, I only had to cheat once in the first episode, meaning its either more logical or I've smartened up since Season 1. The atmosphere is even more astounding than in the last game, particularly in the 3rd episode. With the addition of more locations and often more mysterious people, there is even more of a sinister and paranoid mood. I would kill for Season 3, and they definitely left that door open with the Mask with no Eyes.

Easily as good as season one with some very tense, even frightning moments towards the latter episodes of the season. I said it before and I'll say it again; as long as they keep making seasons of this series, I will keep buying them.

Just as gripping as the first season. I really enjoyed playing this, although it's short at the moment being only the first episode of season 2. It's still got me fiending for the next three that are coming in early 2016.

Keep up the amazing work guys.

The full season has been released a few days ago and...

...holy ♥♥♥♥.

If you were a fan of the first season, you are definitely going to enjoy season two.

The story starts off at where it ended in season one. Instead of playing as Devitt, you now play as his former psychiatrist, Dr Wakefield. In four episodes, the game tells the story of Wakefield searching for Devitt across four different locations. It is during these episodes that you learn about what happened prior to the events of season one -- although most of the flashbacks are only in the final episode.

IF you thought that season one was too short, you're going to be happy that they fixed that in season two. In season one, you would just stick to one place in season one in every episode. In season two, you can travel to SEVERAL locations on a map in every episode (except for the last one, but given the plot at that time, it's probably best not to go anywhere).

It's been developed by the same group of people and their formula of an amazing season one has been reused in season two. Music is atmospheric and beautiful (as expected) and fits perfectly within the game. Graphics still pixelated but the development team seems to have hit the nail on the head again. The game looks wonderful in general (if you can look past the fact that everything's pixelated) but compared to season one, everything somehow seems prettier. They haven't changed anything important about gameplay (if it ain't broke, don't fix it) but they have added some interesting features, like puzzles.

In short, the game has the same feel to it as season one but the dev team managed to make it more than just a sequel.

Although it will probably not be as well-known as season one (I only found this game by sheer coincidence), it's still an incredibly well-made game and if you're into the genre, this game is a must-have.

Pros:
- Additional features compared to s1
- Astonishing graphics
- Fantastic music
- Good continuation of story

Cons:
- Few bugs

Rating: Solid 9.5/10 - get it whenever you can.

(Sidenote: I made a guide! It's a walkthrough to the game and contains achievements as well. If you're ever lost, you can take a quick look at it.)

I've been looking forward to S2 of The Last Door making its way to Steam for some time, and now the Early Access door has started to creak open and unleash the chills once again.

The writing and the atmosphere are just as good as they were in the first season, with an engaging story that draws you in even though that way leads to all manner of unseen and untold horrors, the music and sound design are just as superb as before, while the graphics and animation have been improved to give the game a more cinematic look and feel.

This is a must for fans of old school point-and-click adventures and survival horror, or in fact fans of old school horror in general. Once you step through The Last Door, it will take you and you will want to come back.

Well, what can I say - the second season is a must-play for everyone, who had finished the first one. Although it is not as good and it lacks the occasional more horror-ish parts it is still a one of a kind pixel-art gothic tale. Fortunately the riddles have improved and there is less wandering around waiting for something to happen. You have played the first season? Play it now. You haven't had? Then what are you waiting for?

In brief: If you like H.P. Lovecraft, buy this game.

In far longer summation. It is rare that I decide to write a review of a game, but in the case of The Last Door Season 2, I am pleased to make an exception to this policy. I do not speak idly when I say that this is one of the best games I have played in the last few years. Certainly the graphical style is not to everyone's taste, but I found that it fit the game in a way I cannot quite describe. Yet I fear I am rambling, so allow me to lay out, in a concise a manner as possible, why I liked this game. It is of course, not completely without flaws, such as the occasional moment where the game behaved strangely when I was picking up objects (such as the umbrella in Episode 3), but these are the pettiest of quibbles.

I. The atmosphere. This game has a superb atmosphere and sense of place that draws the player into the world and the story. It builds suspense, and manages to be unnerving with a graphical style that I am afraid to admit I initially sneered at.
II. The story. Naturally, one should play Season 1 before Season 2, in order to experience the story. It is taught, well crafted, and creates a fascinating world and lore all its own. It is perhaps the best Lovecraftian I have ever seen in a game (and that includes the vaunted Bloodborne).
III. The music. The soundtrack to this game is one of the best I have ever heard. While, as with all things, this is a manner of taste, I found the music to be excellently composed, and to fit the mood of the game to a T.

In conclusion, to anyone who enjoys Point & Click Adventures, horror games, H.P. Lovecraft, or even classical music, I must recommend this game. During a time where Steam is increasinly deluged by blindingly unoriginal two bit horror games, it is a joy to see something like this.

I'm really surprise that this hardly got any attention in the "horror gaming genre" in YouTube. (Only Ken plays it) But I'm sure, that this game would be one of the best pixelated-horror experiences you ever play. Definitely worth it. The graphics are intentionally bad, but that's what makes the game so good. Limited vision is one of the best mechanics in pixelated-horror games because as you can't see what is it, you get freaked out. The music is also spectacular and it really sets the mood of the scenario (Though it will be better to reuse some of the pieces from season 1? So to get some nostalgia kicking in?) And most importantly, Story. It is what drives Wakefield deeper into the mystery; It is what makes Wakefield's motive of keenly investigating such a case; and It is why you should play this. Definitely worth it. Really want to see Markiplier playing it.

(And it would be better to release a Mac version as well in the future)
(EDIT: 29 Mar 2016. Mac version is released. Very appreciated. Rate 10/10)
