Until today, I hadn’t heard of “The Trap Door”, and now I’m left wondering how its existence eluded me for so long. For the uninitiated, it’s a British claymation series from the 1980’s that followed a group of monsters who lived in a castle. Its target demographic was children, but because it leaned heavily on gothic horror and dark fantasy themes, the show eventually found itself a cult following.
Developer Aetheric Games has decided to reimagine the series as Trap Door, a mod for Amnesia: The Dark Descent that features original writing, voice-overs, a modified sanity system, multiple endings, and no lantern. I hope you’re not afraid of the dark.
