The Fullbright Company is made up of some people who have never released games for Linux before, but lets forgive them their trespasses so that we might play Gone Home, a “story exploration video game” set in the distant past:
June 7, 1995. 1:15 AM.
You arrive home after a year abroad. You expect your family to greet you, but the house is empty. Something’s not right. Where is everyone? And what’s happened here?
Gone home is an interactive exploration simulator. Interrogate every detail of a seemingly normal house to discover the story of the people who live there. Open any drawer and door. Pick up objects and examine them to discover clues. Uncover the events of one family’s lives by investigating what they’ve left behind.
Go home again.
Oh what. Now you tell me it is an “interactive exploration simulator?” Next you’ll just categorize it as an Adventure, Indie game on Steam… Oh well, it sounds interesting anyway. Can’t wait to try it out.
Gone Home is out now and on sale until August 21st when it becomes two dollars more expensive.
