Previously, Jeremiah Devitt witnessed the tragedy at Beechworth Manor. He saw the corpses of his good friend Anthony Beechworth and his wife Anna.


He suffers from dreadful visions: Anna and her baby, Anthony hanging himself, and a huge bird's eye with dreadful screams and pain. To deal with this post-traumatic stress, he sees a doctor named Wakefield. However, Wakefield doesn't know what to do about Jeremiah's symptoms. He proposes to get help from a old friend, Dr. Kaufmann, who is more skilled in modern psychiatry and has extensive knowledge of the occult. Jeremiah agrees, but still decides to visit his old boarding school as Anthony had requested in a letter.

When Jeremiah arrives at his old school, things aren't as they used to be. It's being used as a hospital run by nuns and his old teacher, Father Ernest. The entire building is occupied by the weak and elderly. Also, the backyard is filled with fresh graves. Devitt discovers that some things aren't right. Why can't he talk to Father Ernest? And what has caused all these recent deaths? A dying patient leaves Devitt a note stating that the new caretaker, Frank Baldwin, is not to be trusted. The patient, who is in agony, asks Devitt to put him out of his misery by injecting him with a lethal dose of morphine.

Jeremiah tells the patient he'll help him out. Depending on the player's choice, Devitt either goes to the nurses' quarters to obtain a bible or to obtain a lethal dose of morphine. When Devitt returns, he find that the bed of the dying patient is empty. He suspects that Baldwin is responsible for the disappearance. While Devitt is searching for the patient in the backyard, he hears noises coming from within a coffin standing in the backyard. Frank Baldwin, who is at work in the front yard, seems to have the appropriate tool to open the coffin, but won't let Jeremiah borrow it. Devitt cleverly finds a way to distract Baldwin by asking him questions about Aberdeen. While Baldwin loses himself in the stories about Aberdeen, Devitt steals the tool. He then rushes towards the backyard to open the coffin. Another patient was locked inside, still alive. Mother Elizabeth, the head nurse, comes to the patient's aid. With the head nurse being occupied, no one prevents Jeremiah from seeing Father Ernest. When he visits Father Ernest, he learns that Ernest has become blind.

Devitt also returns to his old dormitory, where he recalls more of his past. He remembers that he used to be in a secret society and philosophy club while attending boarding school. He also remembers that they used to meet in the basement, a place he didn't investigate yet. He decides to take a look in the basement. When he enters the basement, he finds piles and piles of human corpses. Also the dying patient ended up here. If Devitt has morphine, he quickly injects the patient to end his misery.

He then sees Father Ernest entering the basement. Father Ernest tells him that he remembers Jeremiah. Ernest also used to be in the secret philosophy club. Back in the day, they discovered a serum that could help them take a peek at another world. But there was a being in the other world that looked back. And all the members of the club have been cursed since. Ernest became obsessed with this other world. He hired Baldwin to conduct experiments upon sick and elderly people to find a way to return to this other world. But all experiments failed and many died in agony.

After confessing all of this to Jeremiah, Ernest sets himself on fire. Baldwin, who feels compromised now that the truth is out, hits Jeremiah with a hammer on the head, puts him in a coffin, and buries him alive.

A game with a very attractive plot, gameplay, music and price. The pixilation gives a “romantic” touch to the game, but it causes some things to be overlooked due to the lack of detail of the important objects.* Read full review

The story is great, the game has loads of atmosphere and Devitt walks faster (Thank goodness!). The only real complaint I have is that Chapter Two wasn’t near as nerve racking as Chapter One, but it does have a better story. Read full review

Mwarf   August 25, 2013  (French)
The atmosphere of the game is simply intoxicating, masterfully distilling physical and psychological horror within a universe that is reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe. The number of clickable elements is not very large, so the game is not very difficult. This is a judicious choice that supports the atmosphere by not bogging down gameplay.* Read full review

I've enjoyed the Lovecraft-tinged horror and Victorian mystery of the game's first two chapters and look forward to experiencing more of its world. The prospect of dealing with its obtuse puzzle design, however, fills me with the wrong kind of dread. Read full review

Sometimes, like that, we come across games out of nowhere. At first glance, they have nothing going for them: not sexy, too classical, too much already seen. And yet we still press the play button. And we end up getting a huge slap in 5 minutes. This is a bit of what happened in my case with The Last Door.* Read full review

I’m not trying to suggest that this installment is hard, but it’s more involved than the previous chapter, so those who like their games to be “games” should find some meat to sink their teeth into. There isn’t a whole lot of meat, though. My first run through took a little less than an hour to complete. Read full review
