Soul-reaping doesn't seem to be a tedious job, but Death's Door shines a light upon the fictitious scenario in which the afterlife is bureaucratized. In a world where death came to a halt, an unlikely eulogy holds little to no meaning. Living forever has become the norm, a fever dream come true.

The accumulation of so many elements to crow about – characters, polish, creativity, art design, combative pacing, and so on – made it an experience I couldn't put down.

Death’s Door has some fun lore and a fantastic main character; I mean, I love birds, and what’s not to love about a little bird with a sword? The combat is tight, and battles with enemies and bosses never feel unfair. If anything, each failure felt like it was my fault, something I could fix in a future run or my playstyle overall. Everything comes together so well in Death’s Door; it’s just so enjoyable to play. It has become a top ten contender for my games of the year list so far.

Death's Door is an atmospheric adventure through an inviting fantasy world. It's perfectly crafted, generously provisioned, and an instant indie classic.

Death's Door has very few original ideas, but the flawless implementation of its basic mechanics, combined with a world full of personality and humor, make this ten-hour journey very charming.

Inspired by works such as Zelda and creating an immaculate balance between surfing, puzzle solving and combat, the game offers fascinating gameplay that doesn't fall out of rhythm until the last minute.

Death's Door, candidate for the game of the year, where we handle a crow hunting souls. Action, adventure and light-hearted puzzles with an unbeatable technical craftsmanship. Buy it now, trust me.
