The Next Game From the Creators of Gone Home is Available Now!



This week, TACOMA has been released-- the next game from the creators of Gone Home!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/343860/Tacoma/
Tacoma takes Gone Home's investigative storytelling and character-driven exploration to a new and futuristic world. In the year 2088, digital technology gives us access to every detail of people's lives-- and as Amy Ferrier, you've been sent to Lunar Transfer Station Tacoma to retrieve a mysterious AI and discover the story of what really happened to the station's crew. 3D recordings of moments in these six crewmembers' lives swirl around you, and you're in control of how you engage with them, fast-forwarding and rewinding through complex scenes to understand the events of Tacoma's gripping story in every detail. How you interact with these scenes, and what you find in the rooms and corridors of Tacoma, reveal the mystery one revelation at a time.



We hope fans of Gone Home will enjoy the sci-fi tale woven in Tacoma. It's gotten some great reviews-- such as:

“I got so caught up in the story, I found myself gasping out loud and putting my hands over my face. That’s how much I liked it.” – Paste Magazine. 9.5/10

“A story that's both gripping and emotional... The little details packed into the space station are touches of the sublime.” – Destructoid. 9/10

“A mystery that grabs hold of you the instant your magnetic boots clamp to the station and never lets go... Immensely rewarding.” – PC Gamer. 84/100

Thank you for checking out Tacoma-- we hope you'll grow to love the station's crew just as much as we do. Welcome Aboard!

About This Game

June 7th, 1995. 1:15 AM

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? Unravel the mystery for yourself in Gone Home, a story exploration game from The Fullbright Company.

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.

Key Features


  • A Personal Story: Created by veterans of the BioShock series and the story team behind Minerva's Den, Gone Home offers the rich, nuanced details of one family's struggles to deal with uncertainty, heartache, and change.

  • An Immersive Place: Return to the 1990s by visiting a home where every detail has been carefully recreated, and the sounds of a rainstorm outside wrap you in the experience.

  • No Combat, No Puzzles: Gone Home is a nonviolent and puzzle-free experience, inviting you to play at your own pace without getting attacked, stuck, or frustrated. This house wants you to explore it.

  • Fully Interactive Investigation: Discover what's happened to the Greenbriars by examining a house full of the family's personal possessions, and the notes and letters they've left behind. Use your powers of observation to piece together a story that unfolds as you explore.

  • Behind-The-Scenes Commentary: Over 90 minutes of commentary by the developers, musicians, and voice talent behind Gone Home. Access Commentary mode by clicking the Modifiers button when starting a new game!
