The Chilling Adventure Continues With “The Playwright” on Steam Early Access and Season 2 Collector’s Edition in 2016, With Season 1 On Sale Now
Just in time for Halloween, Phoenix Online Publishing and The Game Kitchen announced today that they will be releasing Season 2 of the hit indie point-and-click horror adventure The Last Door for PC, Mac and Linux in early 2016! Fans of the series can get the game now on Steam Early Access (http://store.steampowered.com/app/402530) for just $7.99 and begin exploring the new mystery immediately with Episode 1 “The Playwright.” This early look at the second season of the low-res graphics, high suspense horror experience continues where last year’s Collector’s Edition left off as Dr. John Wakefield, psychiatrist to Season 1’s protagonist Jeremiah Devitt, sets out in search of his client, who has mysteriously vanished. Soon Wakefield is drawn into the haunting web of forbidden knowledge, madness, and a deep conspiracy hiding it all. Season 1 of the hit series is available this week for 75% off in the Halloween sale at the Phoenix Online Store (store.POStudios.com) with the code PUMPKIN50, and is also available at Steam, GOG.com and other online retailers.
“We truly cannot wait to release the new Season 2, we’re very excited to introduce a lot of surprising revelations to the players who have waited patiently since Season 1,” says Enrique Cabeza, Creative Director for The Game Kitchen. “We have created 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. The wide screen graphics are better than ever with new effects, like raining and snowing. And you can’t miss the new Carlos Viola soundtrack, it will chill your bones!”
The first season of The Last Door: Collector’s Edition, released in 2014, included all four episodes as well as exclusive bonus content and became a best-selling retro-themed horror adventure, earning high marks from fans and critics alike. A “love letter to Lovecraft”, players stepped into the shoes of Jeremiah Devitt to explore ancient mansions, decaying tenements, and the twisting, fog-filled alleys of London in search of memories Devitt had forgotten, but which had driven an old friend to suicide. Season 1 is available for PC, Mac, and Linux, as well as on mobile platforms for iOS and Android.
