  1. Different Game, like a novel
    by lokababy, Spain - Apr 15th 2014

    It was like reading a well-designed book. I really loved the storyline and the way you discover new things and you want to know more and more.

  2. Excellent concept. I want more!

    I love the game play. The concept is unique—explore to learn about the family's secrets. And you never interact with anyone, you just explore the house. I just didn't want it to end!

  3. Thought provoking
    by hcs5490, USA - Mar 25th 2014

    I played through this game in just a few sittings, really taking my time. It's not a super long game, but it makes up for it in story. The ending is a bit predictable once you really get going, but there are a few red herrings and side-steps, as well. Gone Home is almost a mystery game, but it feels more personal than that, like you're really just exploring your own home, finding out things about your family's past and present. It's more about making quiet personal discoveries than really solving a mystery.

    My only gripe with the game was that the movement of the setting made me quite dizzy at times. The POV follows the mouse, so I had to make sure not to move my mouse too quickly or I would have to take a break or risk getting queasy.
