Of course, your favorite fan translations https://fullbright.company/localization/ will still work as well.

We've also added Steam Achievements, as well as Steam Cloud Saves, and a general engine upgrade to a newer version of Unity that should improve performance and compatibility. These updates, aside from specifically Steam-based features, will be coming to DRM-free platforms as well.

Pardon Our Dust: Achievements not yet Achievable while Update is in the works!

Hi there! With the dust settled from shipping Tacoma, we're putting some time into updating Gone Home to carry over some features and improvements from the console release of the game. Specifically:

  • Official support for a number of languages (fan translations will still be usable as well)
  • Steam Achievements
  • Cloud saves
  • Unity version upgrade with improved performance and compatibility
  • Some minor bugfixes

While this work is ongoing, Achievements may be visible on Gone Home's Steam page, but they won't be obtainable until the update patch goes out for the game. So Achievement hunters, hold off for now! We do not yet have an ETA for when the update will be finished, as we're still working on integrating these features and have a number of bugs to fix, etc.-- but keep an eye out, and thanks for playing!

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!
