The lights are on
Gone Home was one of this year’s most captivating tales. It told the story of a sister arriving at her family’s new home after a semester abroad. When she arrives, she finds only a note from her sister urging her to leave well enough alone and not go searching.
Fan Seth Macy has received an all-clear from The Fullbright Company to de-make Gone Home using RPG Maker XP. He’s shared the first few screenshots of his project, which will recreate the experience in 16-bit RPG form. You can read up on Gone Home in our review.

Our TakeGone Home was one of my favorite experiences of the year, and I’m curious to find out what difference a change in perspective and aesthetics will have. Unfortunately, the sense of discovery on the second playthrough will be muted. However, this de-make may hold surprises of its own as Macy tackles the challenges of translating Gone Home.
