Walkthrough: The Last Door | Season 1 | Chapter 1: The Letter
- I've played the online version of the game in Firefox 31.0.
- Game link: https://thelastdoor.com/index.php/chapter/1
- The game is stable and I experienced no crashes / bugs.
- All activities involve only left-clicking.
- Progress is mostly linear. You CAN do some activities in a different order than I have noted.
- The + crosshairs change to a magnifying glass over hotspots.
- After observing, some objects can be collected when the cursor changes to a hand icon.
- The inventory is present at the bottom of the screen.
- Objects in the inventory can be combined with each other.
- To use an inventory object:
-- Left click to select it
-- Left click on a screen hotspot / another inventory object
-- The object gets an yellow outline where it can potentially be used
-- Wrong matches are indicated with a red X.
- Use the lens in the inventory to get descriptions of inventory objects.
- Inventory items are removed after use.
- Double click exits to leave a scene instantly.
- Listen carefully to Devitt's comments for clues and hints.
- Click on dialogue boxes to proceed further.
- There is no hotspot revealer. Browse the screen for hotspots.
- Chapter 1 has only Devitt and no conversations.
- Chapter 1 has only inventory-based puzzles.
- Special keys:
-- 1: To enable dyslexia-friendly font
-- 2: To enable sound descriptions (appears at the top of the screen)
-- 3: Fullscreen mode
- Progress is autosaved.
- Pressing the CROSS at the top right of the screen exits the game.
- Reloading the game gives options to resume from last autosave point, or start afresh.
- Closing the browser window is okay; game can be relaunched and reloaded as usual.
- Shutting down the PC will need the game to be loaded from scratch.
