About the Story

In this comedy mystery text adventure, you play the time-traveling assistant to bumbling detectives, at the ready wherever and whenever you're needed.

Suspense, deduction, forensic science, three-dimensional characters and thought-provoking puzzles. This game has none of those. It does feature part of a heist and part of a murder mystery and hopefully a few laughs.

The world is about to end, and you are just a guy living on the islands of northwest Washington. What will you do on your last day?

Advent Door, by Andrew Plotkin
Average member rating: (10 ratings)
Where’s that door? This game was written for a collaborative 2019 Advent Calendar project. The theme was "The City of Doors" from the Planescape roleplaying setting. That project was never completed, so I released this game by itself.
