08 Gone Home

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - OXM INVESTIGATES -

For­mat Xbox One | Re­lease 2016 You don’t need the big bucks to make a game with a fan­tas­tic story, as Gone

Home so per­fectly proved. In this first­per­son walk­ing sim­u­la­tor you play as Katie Green­briar. In 1995 Katie re­turns home af­ter some time away to find the place de­serted. Her fam­ily is nowhere to be found and with no im­me­di­ate guid­ance you’re left to ex­plore. This is where the beauty of the game lies. By wan­der­ing around, find­ing notes and items, you dis­cover all sorts of things about your fam­ily. It ap­proaches sub­jects such as in­fi­delity, abuse, love and sex­u­al­ity, all of which are rarely ap­proached in games.
