About

Reaping souls of the dead and punching a clock might get monotonous but it's honest work for a Crow. The job gets lively when your assigned soul is stolen and you must track down a desperate thief to a realm untouched by death - where creatures grow far past their expiry and overflow with greed and power.

Talon Sharp Combat: Utilize melee weapons, arrows and magic to overcome a fantastic array of beasts and demigods. Mistakes are punished and victory is rewarded. Gain an edge by customizing your character stats and mastering the abilities and upgrades you obtain.

A Beautifully Bleak World: Venture beyond the Doors and explore a land full of twisted inhabitants and countless secrets, bringing hope to the weird and wonderful characters you’ll meet along the way.

A Dark Mystery to Unravel: Track down and defeat colossal tyrants with stories and motivations of their own. Experience a somber yet darkly comedic tale, uncovering the truths behind the flow of souls, the role of the Crows and the origin of the Doors.

Death's Door reviews and comments

Flawed but Fun game overall.

WHAT I LIKED:
-Beautiful, rich environments, full of collectibles and secret areas that are fun to explore. 
-Memorable, funny, unique characters with awesome character designs. 
-Interesting meditation on the meaning of life and death. 

WHAT I DISLIKED/WOULD DO BETTER: 
-No map (very easy to lose track of progress or run around in circles, especially for first time players).
-Hack n slash action, but with VERY slow movement speed and the need to aim/point your cursor really freaking precisely to land a hit. 
-Boss battles take a really long time and are very boring/repetitive (no transformations or new moves)
-Repetitive gameplay overall (you have to find four souls in each area in order to progress, fighting enemies along the way) 
-You only get four HP, need to grind in order to get more, and you have no way to self heal. If you die and haven't opened up new pathways you'll find yourself starting all over again. 
-Lots of grinding needed to get 100%
-Unskippable cutscenes (you can fastforward through dialogue, but that's about it) 

VERDICT: 
If you like Dark Souls or Zelda you'll probably love this game (since this game is supposed to be inspired by them); if you're not into them (like I am) it's still fun but not without problems. 
Stunning.
One of those games without any real flaws that perfects what it sets out to do.

Death's Door is exactly what it wants to be: a well-crafted Zelda-like full of mystery and intrigue. Its laser sharp focus, appealing visuals, witty storytelling, and thoughtful level design make it the best $20 I've spent this year.

 It's hard to find a flaw in Death's Door. Its simple premise and mechanics are used to their fullest, the level/dungeon design is satisfying and smart, the animations are cute and full of flavor, the visual style is varied and never tiring to look at, and the witty writing compliments the mostly light-hearted experience. I completed 100% of the game and 23/24 achievements in 12 hours, which included a "true" ending in the prologue. The mystery surrounding the true ending scratched all the right spots for me, reminding me of games like Fez and Hollow Knight.

 If you're a fan of Zelda titles, metroidvanias, and their like, then Death's Door is for you. It can be fairly challenging at times, so be aware this might not be accessible to everyone.
