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.


Happy Gaming!

My brother gave me a link to a review of the game on another site. Has any Boomer played this? Any plans for a review? Thanks for the help.

This looks to be a pretty short game. Checking it out on YouTube, most gamers are finishing it in around an hour. eek Perhaps they're not bothering to fully explore?

I have been playing Gone Home. I have gotten to the end of the game, but do not have all the journals, so I know I have missed parts. I will return to the game tomorrow. I want to find what parts I have missed and collect the missing journals. Glad I purchased the game, having a good time. happydance I throughly enjoyed this game until the last journal and IMO ruined the entire game! I am very dissapointed.

Out of interest, how long did it take you from start to finish, kazzmo?

Rushes. I would say about 8 hours. I played the game slowly, clicked on everything, examined and read everything, stopped and thought about what I had just read and seen, took my time in all the rooms. After I reached the end of the game, I still had some journals to find, so I went back and searched the rooms again until I found all of them. I needed help with the last journal, so I went to YouTube and saw where people were finishing the game in an hour or less. I also noticed that they hurried through all the rooms, just hurrying to finish the game and were not finding all the journals and IMO that is not playing or finishing the game. So the play time will vary, depending on how interested the player is in getting to know the people who live in the house and their past.

Thanks, kazzmo, that's helpful info. smile

I just watched one of the "zip-through" YouTube playthroughs, and found the story -- what there was of it, for an hour! -- very moving.

Hi. It's been quite a long time since I was last here.

This game looks interesting to me -- any more opinions of it?

Also -- I was thinking of buying it. Is purchasing and downloading from the official website the only way to purchase it, or is there a boxed version? Has anyone here purchased from the website and, if so, was it safe to do so (I would be using paypal)?

Finally, and please pardon my ignorance, but what is a "Steam Key"? Is this an online only game, or one that you download?

Thanks in advance for any help/info you can provide.

No boxed version as of the moment but you can safely buy from the developer on the official website and download. Steam is another download website and game manager which you can read about here. You will get a key to unlock the game from here as well as from the developer if you purchase from them.
