Discover Your Past in “Gone Home”
The year is 1995. You’ve just arrived home after a year overseas, but your family is mysteriously absent. You explore the house, looking for clues, and try to piece together what has happened.
That’s Gone Home in a nutshell. It’s part of a growing camp of indie games, which includes games such as Dear Esther, that focuses on story and exploration rather than stabbing or shooting at people. It’s a trend that advocates for the art and experience of games, and Gone Home looks like a promising addition.
Gone Home will be available on August 15 for PC, Mac, and Linux.
