Seven Doors from SOEDESCO and Indigo Studios is a first-person budget escape room experience on PlayStation 5. This publisher and developer combo previously gave us the first-person horror game Charon’s Staircase on Sony’s console. As you start to play, a voice-over welcomes you to Seven Doors. It states that behind the first door, there will be seven challenges to test your skills. The first room will be The Empty Library, and as soon as you walk in there, you’ll get your first trophy – more on these in a bit.
With the game being played from a first-person perspective, you’ll control your character with the left analog stick as you use the right one to look around as needed. To run, just press and hold down the L2 or R2 buttons. You can pick up and interact with stuff by pressing the Square button. If you want to take something, then press the Circle button to add it to your inventory.
Since the game is not a long one – depending on your experience, you can probably complete the seven main rooms and the additional bonus rooms in a few hours – I can’t really talk about the specific puzzles that you’ll find along the way. Doing this would spoil this short but fun experience, so I’ll let you find out what needs to be done in each of the rooms by playing the game. I will mention that as long as you search everywhere and look into every nook and cranny, you should be good to go.
The game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to aim for. The list includes 8 Silver trophies and 9 Gold trophies for you to pop as you try to add one more Platinum trophy to your collection. Without spoiling things too much, some of them will unlock as you play through the game, but there are also some missable trophies along the way, so do keep that in mind. There are also some bonus rooms that will unlock after completing the main seven rooms. If you want some extra help, you can check out this Seven Doors Trophy Guide.
Seven Doors is a bite-sized escape room experience that is fun to play on Sony’s console. The gameplay mechanics are simple enough, and the logic behind solving each of the puzzles is solid, making it a great option for escape room aficionados. I also have to mention that this indie game looks great on PlayStation 5, so kudos to the devs for their effort in that aspect. Seven Doors is available on PlayStation 5 at a budget price of $4.99. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version available as a separate purchase for the same price.
