The White Door is the fourteenth game by Rusty Lake and the first spin-off game of the series, released on January 9th, 2020. It was co-published by indie game publisher Second Maze, which was co-founded by the owners of Rusty Lake.

The game takes place in a mental health facility in 1972, where Robert Hill has awoken suffering from severe memory loss. The gameplay differs from other Rusty Lake games, using a third-person split screen view and lacking any inventory system.

The game has an accompanying website that is a companion to the game. It was created as part of an ARG where people from around the world followed the clues from the website to find ten hidden black cubes. These cubes had ten access codes needed for to enter the basement in Sarah's level.

Soundtrack.png Soundtrack[edit | edit source]

The soundtrack for this game contains 12 specially composed tracks from composer Victor Butzelaar. It can be purchased via bandcamp.com.

The piece of operatic music in the Day 4 dream is from Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème. It is the aria "Si, mi chiamano Mimi" in which Mimi tells Rodolfo about herself. Interestingly, the aria includes the line (when translated to English) "I stay all alone/In my tiny white room"[1]; though this may be coincidental.
