If you can find Devolver Digital in the publishers and in all likelihood there is a game that you can play, if there’s no masterpiece in the field of indie and at the very least, an excellent game that can leave a lasting impression. The adventure-based game Death’s Door didn’t escape this fate . This game was a pleasant and unexpected discovery for me and I’m sure it will be rewarded in 2021.

For Death’s Door is the studio of the same name Acid Nerve, which is a small studio with only one game in mind – an immersive pixels Titan Souls adventure with the main focus on engaging boss fights..
The lack of experience did not stop the creators from leaping above their head and offering the world with Death’s Door – another adventure game featuring an isometric viewpoint that has a unique plot twist. The protagonist is an unassuming raven, who works as reaper in the Death Bureau and makes his livelihood by reclaiming souls of the deceased.
Another task for our crow alters his perspective on the world. The soul he needs to recover was taken by a mysterious criminal who is hiding in a world that is not under the authority of the hero’s superior. To track down the rascal you’ll need to gather three massive souls of creatures that were long ago lost to darkness and greed.
Then, in the journey we meet the first characters (just take a look at Kotelok as a guy who wears an empty pot instead of head) and their tales (which will be relevant in the near future) as we discover the facts concerning the Bureau and then slowly, but surely progress towards the conclusion that you will not know what you can anticipate. The protagonist himself does not say any words during the journey.
The combat mechanics are straightforward and do not appear to be anything complicated. I played with the light attack for the duration of the game, completely forgetting about the heavy attack as well as the lightning rod that I used to attack my foes was the primary sword since other weapons weren’t suitable for me.
It’s important to remember it is a a grind but it’s not compulsory. souls that are required for pumping, and quietly collected throughout the game those who wish to rapidly build up their power, will return to previous locations as well as farm souls.
This adventure should take about 10-15 hours to finish the story, with another 10 hours if you want to unravel every secret.
Death’s Door is good in everything , starting with the novel’s unique plot and ending with the smallest of details which show the authors made huge efforts and took a an ethical approach to the creation. It’s definitely one of the best in the genre of indie and will be loved by those who don’t often meet this genre.
