Considering that The Chinese Room consists of a dozen or so developers based in sunny British seaside town Brighton, there are some serious production values on display in its forthcoming PlayStation 4 project. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture looks borderline photorealistic – in fact, while perusing screenshots of the title prior to penning this article, this author's parent's inquired why he was looking at Google Maps.
The title's set in Shropshire during the eighties, and the developer's really captured the look and feel of the English countryside. Of course, while you'll be spending most of your time simply exploring the release's open world, there's an evocative story bubbling beneath the surface, which is down to you to discover. Clearly this isn't going to be everyone's cup of Earl Grey, but it's right up this scribe's privet hedge bordered driveway.
Sounds very much like something I would enjoy.
not sure if its a day 1 for me but im still very intrigued by it. ethan carter on the other hand i cannot wait for. hope this turns out good though. i like these types of games a lot when done right.
It looks very good and reminiscent of the village I grew up in. It has the quintessential charm of a typical English village but the game play looks incredibly dull. Despite living in areas like this, I never really enjoyed just walking around them. I know they are keeping the 'mystery' of the story underwraps but I want more from a game than pretty visuals and a casual stroll through a virtual village to 'find' a story.
Need to see the gameplay before I decide if this is for me. If it's more an interactive novel I'll probably give it a miss though...
Not that it really matters, but the grass looks very last-gen!
@BAMozzy I Lived in a similar town years ago. Keep the hope, it will be good.
