V1.03 Patchnotes + Gamereactor Review

Hey everyone!

I've finally managed to fix the UI bugs that prevented the game from being properly displayed at resolutions above 1920x1080! I'd still recommend playing the game at that resolution, but at least now the game is playable in larger resolutions as well! :)

In other news, the game received a 10/10 from Gamereactor Norway! It was re-released with a translation on the German site, I've linked them below if you'd like to have a read:

V1.02 Typo fixes and Eurogamer review!


Earlier this week Eurogamer posted a review about Please Knock on My Door, and I wanted to share it with you. To be completely honest, it is a bit strange to see how the game is able to connect so strongly with people. It really warms my heart.

You can read the review here.

I just pushed a small update for the game that fixes a few typos. Nothing big, just trying to stay on top of what gets reported. :)

All the best,
Michael L

“Please Knock on My Door gave me a better understanding of myself and my illness, a remarkable achievement for a video game.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“'Please Knock on My Door' undeniably cements itself as an indie gem bent on changing the way in which narratives are delivered to the player, making the experience of interacting with a game a highly personal matter.”
4.5/5.0 – The Daily Californian

“It is, by far, the best and worst gaming experience I have ever had, and there's absolutely no doubt in my mind that it deserves a score I have never used before.”
10/10 – Gamereactor

About This Game

Please Knock on My Door is a story-driven game which gives you control over a person suffering from depression and social anxiety. Help them get through work and reach out to friends while desperately trying to survive. Experience the frailty these themes bring and gain a better understanding of what it's like to live with some of the most common mental health issues today.

  • A compelling and emotional story offering a voice to those who have none.
  • A fully voiced narrator who always has your best in mind. Probably.
  • A gameplay system which adds to the weight of every story-choice you make.
  • No "Game Over" screen, only alternate endings that tie into your choices.
  • A soundtrack that has been tailor-made for this experience.
  • Relationships that can be developed or broken.
  • Game length varies depending on your choices, ranging from 1-3 hours with enough content that you can come back and explore different parts of the narrative in consequent playthroughs.
  • As in real life, all of your choices are immediately saved. There is only one save.

Please Knock on My Door has been in development since autumn 2014 and was initially supposed to be a 6 month exploration of my own experiences with depression. A word of caution; this is a game that might be difficult to play for those who have dealt with psychological issues such as depression and anxiety. That said, I truly believe that through entertainment we are able to understand topics that would otherwise be too foreign for us. I hope this game can help you better understand what it can be like to live with these issues, like it has already helped me.
