    my favorite part…
    it’s hard to tell
    well I guess the basement part is my favorite
    loved the puzzles!

  2. Laila says:

    My favorite moment was the scene referencing Cube Escape Theater! And the end when Bob meets Laura for the first time, it was so pure.

  3. Georgia Rigby says:

    I’ve got to say my favourite moment is when Bob met Laura in the cafe in day 1. There’s something about the scene that is poetic, beautiful and sad all in one go! From the pulling away from the hand to the moment she disappeared. Loved the whole game I finished it the day I bought it! Can’t wait to see more of this exquisite work

  4. Axel! says:

    My favourite moment was honestly when I realised it was an ARG ! Joining the discord and having fun tracking down the cubes with everyone!

  5. Steven Lasaine says:

    My favorite moment? Opening the game.
    My second favorite moment? Playing the game.

    My least favorite moment? Waiting for the next game.

  6. Austin Ludford says:

    My favorite moment was the basement and the ARG experience. It took some real sleuthing to figure out those puzzles!

  7. Icy :) says:

    My favourite thing was the multiple choices we had in the game. It took it to a whole other level! Amazing game, can’t wait for new games to come

  8. Arseniy says:

    My favourite thing in TWD was a not usual perspective, so I could see this world from another side. And also I like the secret level, which I and other people in Discord was founding in a real life. It was absolutely awesome!

  9. Juliana G says:

    My favorite memory playing this game was the comfort it gave me while flying on a plane! I played this game for hours during my flight and unlocked all of the secrets and it helped calm my nerves so much! I LOVE these games and have played all of them! I’m so excited to see more stuff in the future!

  10. Rus says:

    My favorite moment was the dance club! Seeing other games and characters being referenced in the background and trying to figure out what’s real and what isn’t was a lot of fun. Really looking foward to new projects and games!

  11. Kaelyn says:

    My favorite part has to be opening the window every day. You never know what will be behind the blinds…

  12. Júlio Rodrigues says:

    my favorite moment was at the white door where there was the black cubes puzzle around the world

  13. Angie Bateman says:

    I loved the freedom to explore as I liked and yet I had to maintain the strict schedule! Liberating and regimented. Made it easier to escape the pandemic for a while! Thanks!

  14. There are so many things that I loved about playing this game, but I especially enjoyed all the parts where you’d be doing something on the right side of the screen and it corresponds in the left side, for example when you hit the ball on the racket, then it shows exactly what you’re doing on the ‘miniature’ side as well. It was really well done. So much thought went into this. That’s what I loved most.

  15. Gianna Luongo says:

    My favorite part of playing was getting the flashbacks of Robert’s memories. Especially his relationship with Laura. What can I say, I’m a sucker for lore reveals <3

  16. Freddie says:

    I loved the moment where you had to colour in the robin, so cute ☺️

  17. Joey Salas says:

    My favorite part of the white door is the escape it gave me from the quarantine we all are in. Sometimes I feel like my life is an escape game I still haven’t found the way out of…

  18. Tracy van den Berg says:

    My favourite part of The White Door was the ARG component. It was so much fun having the opportunity to be a part of the game, to share and celebrate ours and others success in solving elements.

  19. Zenk says:

    My favorite part in any games/movies, etc is easter eggs. It helps to understang how much streinght creators put into it. To connect several games/movies between each other is a big deal.

  20. Petra says:

    My favourite puzzles were the ones on the computer, I found those very pleasant to go through 🙂 Also the little quizzes I had to fill out each morning about “myself” 😀 And of course the story slowly revealing what The White Door actually is, how I got there, and what happens to me… Mental Health&Fishing gets me every time tho <3

  21. Freddie says:

    Mine was colouring in the robin. So cute☺️

  22. JACOBÍ says:

    Not gonna lie, I love the club scene… but, especially, when Robert kept sticking his finger in his head (when I finally the secret star, it threw me for a loop. LOL).

    Also, I just love hearing the voiceovers; Bob’s voice is so soothing. I’ve played through every level at least 6 or 7 times

    The game actually freaked me out for a second because the main character has the same name as my dad, and was born the same day he pass away.

  23. Kid says:

    My favorite part is when you annonce the new game

  24. Elias says:

    When the new game will come out?

  25. Mr.Hour says:

    My favorite moment was the scene where the picture of Robin, which Laura was drawing, turns into the Rusty Lake Hotel.

    she stared at me..

    No it is not.

    It`s all in your head.

  26. Gisela Rodriguez says:

    My favorite moments is deciding my diner int he game. It’s a small detail that I absolutely thought was covered in the game. Big Fan! Have all the games on my phone!

  27. Jess says:

    My favourite moment was the audible sigh that was felt in the room when everything made sense. These games are more than games. And the alternate ending is everything one could hope for.

  28. Galina Velichkova says:

    My favorite part of game is when losing memory of Laura.

  29. Sophia Moon says:

    My favorite moment is the club scene!! I liked the music.

  30. DanG says:

    My favorite part was probably painting the room because at that moment of hopelessness after witnessing Robert’s memories. The pacing is great and the emotions that everything makes you feel is beyond words. Thanks for the game Rusty Lake, keep at it!

  31. Stas says:

    My favorite moment is lying in bed to the fantastically hopeless melody Day three by Viktor Butzelaar, very much like me 8)

  32. luv_Cats says:

    Love the whole game and rusty lake series, the hidden scenes/changes add some genius light on several references of the franchise. Saying that, the scene that really resonates with me in this game was the Sarah dream episode. His not realizing there is something or someone missing is remarkably bittersweet and tender.
