Earlier this week The Fullbright Company broke their year-long hiatus of announcements and stated that they will be bringing their PC title ‘Gone Home’ to Xbox One and PS4. The game is slotted for release on January 12 of 2016. The ported version will be an upgrade from its 2013 version. Gone Home: Console Edition utilizes new development platform features of Unity 5 and promises to be a comfortable fit for whichever console gamers chose to play it on.
Gone Home takes place in 1995. The game follows Kaitlin Greenbriar, a student returning from studying abroad, as she attempts to uncover why her home has been abandoned. Exploration of the house reveals audio cassettes and other clues as the game progresses. The indie title received positive to mixed reviews upon its release, as well as Game of the Year Awards from Polygon and Kilscreen.
Writer and developer of Fullbright, Steve Gaynor stated, “Ever since Gone Home came out we’ve wanted to be able to bring it to people who maybe aren’t PC gamers, or don’t have a good enough computer, or who just want to play in their living room, maybe to share the experience with a friend or loved one from the comfort of their couch. Our goal wasn’t to add or change things, but just to bring the game that players know & love onto consoles in the best possible form we could. We’re really excited for you all to get your hands on it!”
