Gone Home

19 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Gone Home tells a story unlike any other game in recent memory, and yet it does so in a way that only a video game can. The masterfully executed environmental storytelling guarantees that each player will walk away from Gone Home with a different experience.

Gone Home’s ghosts in the closet aren’t the usual ghosts in closets

Quarter to Three
16 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Many videogames that struggle to reconcile gameplay and storytelling fail valiantly. Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us would have been so much better if the developers hadn’t jammed into their wonderful stories the rote gunplay, stealth, and scavenging you expect in your games.

  • Conclusion: Like my beloved My So-Called Life, a “little” show that struggled for ratings and mainstream acceptance, I fear that Gone Home may face an uphill battle when it comes to finding its audience.

  • Excerpt: This is the basic premise of Home , a horror game from indie developer Benjamin Rivers. The nameless protagonist, who awakes in a house that he has no recollection of visiting, must find an exit and possibly figure out why his leg hurts so much.
  • Pros: The 2D graphics are simultaneously charming and creepy., Sounds will make you jump out of your seat., The narrative is well written and keeps you engaged.
  • Cons: This game can be finished in less than an hour.
