The Virtues Of Going Into A Game Blind
on February 11, 2016 at 05:24 PM
Gone Home is a fascinating game, but I don’t want to tell you anything about it. I just want you to play it, experience it, and discover what it is on your own. This is the advice I was given from my coworkers I asked if Gone Home was worth my time. The game seemingly came out of nowhere, and before...

Grunge, Gangs, And Cages: Games That Capture The ‘90s
on November 15, 2015 at 01:45 PM
Grunge and a distinct lack of glamour aside, the ‘90s were a time of rapid advancements in technology and media. Phones, television, films, and plenty more began to make the first steps towards our modern hyper-connectivity, but are still strikingly tied to the decade. The video game industry,...
Let's Play Gone Home With Fullbright
on July 24, 2015 at 02:00 PM
Fullbright may be working hard on their next game, Tacoma, but during our visit we decided to take a trip down memory lane with their previous game Gone Home. It's an intimate story that is told through layers of subtext across voice-overs, journals, and discovery. Our own Kimberley Wallace got to...

Space Elevators, Magnetic Boots, and AR: The Futuristic Tech Of Tacoma
on July 13, 2015 at 04:00 PM
Gone Home transported players back to the ‘90s, putting them in a house full of audio cassettes, trapper keepers, and VHS tapes. Since Tacoma is set in 2088, Fullbright won’t have these nostalgic touchstones to establish a familiar setting. The mysterious space station immerses players in...
Games To Beat In A Day – Gone Home
on September 01, 2014 at 06:00 PM
Not all experiences need to be long and drawn out to leave a mark. Some are meant to be digested in one sitting. Gone Home may be short in length, but that doesn't take away from the wonderment you feel as you search a house and try to piece together what's going on. Few games let your desire...
Moments: Approaching The Attic In Gone Home
on April 23, 2014 at 07:00 PM
Gone Home is not a horror game, but it does a good job of building an atmosphere of tension and unfamiliarity. These elements make sense, since you’re exploring a large, ominous mansion (which you know nothing about) while a storm rages outside. The environment got the best of me a number of different...
The Art Of Endings: Tales Of Ending A Game
on April 09, 2014 at 12:56 PM
Endings are tricky. A good ending can resonate with you long after you’ve finished an experience and live on in your conversations and memories. However, an unsatisfying one can cast a cloud over an otherwise solid story. So much can hinge on a finale that writers often struggle to bring everything...

Opinion: Stop Being So Rigid In How You Define Games
on November 05, 2013 at 03:05 PM
One thing I’m consistently annoyed with as developers break new ground in interactive entertainment is a subset of gamers dismissing new experiences by saying, “it’s not a game,” or “it’s barely a game.” Lately, I’ve been thinking about how people attempt...
Opinion: Short Games Are King
on September 24, 2013 at 03:25 PM
The day before Grand Theft Auto V came out I could feel the knot in my stomach growing. I wasn't excited. I was nervous. I was worried that GTA would soon consume my life, and part of me just wanted to play something shorter. I don't get game anxiety often, but when I do it's usually around...
