After a delay lasting almost a month, Gone Home will finally, y'know, go home on the PlayStation 4 in Europe next week. The game – which was delayed in early January – will now arrive on 12th February in the Old World. It's been available in North America for eons already. This tends to happen sometimes.
The developer cited issues with ratings and certification, and for once we can't actually blame SCEE, because it was held back on the Xbox One, too. We'd have loved to have brought you a review weeks ago, but publisher Majesco don't want to speak to us at the moment. Oh well.
I've heard great things about this game. I need to look into it to see if it would be something I'd be into. What's a game you would compare it to?
@Cowboysfan-22 It's one of those story-driven, narrative-heavy adventure games. So, think Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.
@get2sammyb say no more. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture was one of my favorite games last year. I'm now interested in this
Happy it's finally arriving - have this tagged for a present.
@Cowboysfan-22 - did you ever play Fallout 4 or Skyrim and think "this is OK, but wouldn't it be better if they got rid of all the enemies, NPCs, weapons, quests, crafting, fantastical locations... and just left in the bits where you walk around reading people's diaries?"
if you like pretentious indie art-project type "games" with arguably zero actual gameplay, and unarguably no replay value, you'll love Gone Home. It's brilliant at what it does, which is next to nothing.
Next up on PS4 : Watching Paint Dry Simulator 2016. Now with Satin Gloss Teal. Mee-wow!
@SuperCat did you play Everbody's Gone to the Rapture? All you do is walk around and listen to a story that's told bit by bit. Sounds boring right? Well it's not. It's a brilliant game. Sometimes I like the change of pace. All of the running and gunning, killing, fast-paced gameplay that seems to be in every game these days can wear on me after a while. I loved Fallout 4. It's probably my 2015 GOTY but EGTTR is in the top 5 for me. Incredible story, beautiful environment, and a slow pace were a welcomed change for me
We'd have loved to have brought you a review weeks ago, but publisher Majesco don't want to speak to us at the moment. Oh well.
@get2sammyb Why don't they? I'm genuinely interested. You gave their other game a 10/10 - terrible pr from that team.
@SuperCat dis you hear about the flat pack furniture sim... it's actually happening
@Cowboysfan-22 This game isn't as interesting or well-written as EGTTR. It's only about 2 hours long and the whole 'story told through setting' thing isn't done all that well. If you really want it, wait for a sale, it's not really worth the usual £15 price of admission.
@themcnoisy To be honest, it doesn't seem like Majesco have many employees anymore.
Gone Home is a magnificent game, in about 3-4 hours it makes a memory for you that cannot be forgotten easily. i played it on PC but will buy it again, this time on PS4 just to support developer Fullbright.
if you interested in great stories and powerful writing in video games then you shouldn't miss Gone Home.
