The Last Door is an episodic 2D point-and-click adventure/horror game made by Spanish developers: The Game Kitchen. The game takes place in a Lovecraft-esque version of Victorian England. The collector’s edition contains all of the episodes from the game’s first season as well as a number of extras and frankly, it’s fair to say that I’m impressed.
