About this game
Developer: The Fullbright Company
Content Rating: Mature
Gone Home is a conceptual simulation game somewhat themed after classic adventure titles where how you interact with space around your characters determines how far you progress in the game. This title is all about exploring a modern, residential locale, and discovering the story of what happened there by investigating a deeply interactive gameworld. The development team aims to push for true simulation,both in the sense of the physics system but also in allowing the player to open any door or drawer they'd logically be able to and examine what's inside, down to small details.

Thoughtful, clever, and articulately composed, Gone Home is the sweet sort of story that games typically tend to shun. Katie's homecoming is emotionally charged, expertly plotted, and impressively authentic. And while it may not quench the thirst of those anxious for action, it tells a tale that practically everyone will be able to identify with – as long as you give it the chance.
One of the best games of 2013 is finally out on consoles. If you haven’t done so already, you owe it to yourself to experience a beautiful story and some very clever, but understated, game design.
We've skirted around a lot of the content in Gone Home, because it really is one of those games where if you've said anything you've said too much. But what we do want to reiterate is that this is truly environmental storytelling at its finest, and when you mix it together with a lovely soundtrack, a very engaging and human story, and a touch of surprise, you've got a concoction that really sticks with you long after putting it down.
