Death’s Door Thoughts and Impressions

Death’s Door – Xbox (also on PC)

Recommended to me by Logan Moore (and plenty of glowing tweets), I decided to snag this in-between playing games for Chapter Select Season 2. I am a couple bosses in and am quite enjoying it.

Death’s Door reminds me of both ustwo’s Monument Valley and Capy Games’ Below – which I reviewed at launch for DualShockers. It doesn’t have randomly generated levels, but has an atmospheric, isometric view with a charming, sword-slashing character.

Hunting bosses down for their souls, reminds me of, well lots of games, but Titan Souls specifically comes to mind. I dabbled on Vita back when it came out.

The music is light and airy with a twinge of wonder, like something you’d hear while a tale from long ago was being gently spoken before bedtime.

If any of that sounds like a good time to you, I’d recommend playing Death’s Door.
