As a fan of Titan Souls, Death’s Door was a highlight for me from the first day and it was worth it. Developed by Acid Nerve and published by Back digital, it’s yet another game to add to the impressive list of indie titles released in 2021.
Although the game is only supposed to last about 10 hours, I can see that this is something for the more completeer. You could spend a lot more time in the game solving the different puzzles and accessing all the secret areas. The game balances its complexity (there is no card … no card) with a lot of humor and secrets.

First of all, the game looks beautiful. It’s a great art style that’s in equal parts dark and depressing and colorful and bizarre. There are weird character designs, every boss has felt completely unique so far, and the story unfolds in ways I wasn’t expecting.
Most of the gameplay is fluid. Early reports found that playing with a controller on the PC was literally impossible (whether or not you’re on steam or GOG or other platform) and there are also some frame rate stuttering issues and general performance issues.
But in terms of the meat and bones of the game, the fight is addicting. Working on your next upgrade or weapon feels like a huge step forward in the way the game is played. It’s not just “Here’s another weapon, have fun with it,” the weapons or skills you use can actually affect how you navigate through each dungeon.
Like me, you could even go back to areas you’ve already explored to see if the new gear can be used there. Spoiler: It can.
The fight is a little unforgiving at first as you can only take four hits before dying. Once you’ve shut down those combos and practiced a little with each weapon, it actually becomes very satisfying. Balancing your healings and saving them for crucial moments just adds a bit more strategy to the game.
What really stands out about Death’s Door is its narrative and characters. Whether it’s the charming stoner, the wretched crows who reap souls, or even the details of various enemies you are fighting, this is a game that prides itself on doing something different.
