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.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Misleading Pre-Order Preview
The preorder preview for this game was entirely misleading. “You arrive home to find your family missing. Search your home for clues to find out what happened to them.” Okay, I’m paraphrasing, here, but that was the essence of the ad. I thought I was getting a mystery game filled with puzzles and an intriguing storyline. Only after the release did the full description print to show you were getting a love story, not a mystery.
The graphics are fine. The music is beautiful. The controls are ridiculous. The story is blah ... relive your sister’s discovery of her sexuality. Along the way, learn of your parents struggles and find evidence of potential infidelity. Oh, and get scored on various tasks that have nothing to do with the story.
The game is fine if you are into puzzle-less story walkthroughs. If, however, you are looking for an involved story with clues to find, puzzles to solve, and a mystery to unravel, look elsewhere.
OMG worth buying
I honestly don’t know what to say I love this game so much because it was so addicting and such a good mystery there’s nothing chasing you and you can do it at your own speed but the problem with it is the first time I played I got glitched in the doorway but when I restarted it and I clicked new game I finish the game with in like two hours this game is amazing awesome and fun but I really want to find Sam you guys should make a second one that’s a tiny bit cheaper but is you actually are finding where Sam is I almost cried at the ending because it was so sad and so happy and I was so proud of myself too and I would pay for a new version but this game is definitely worth buying
A pointless maze of nothingness
Okay, I have been so excited about this game. I am a huge fan of puzzle/point and click Myst/The Room/Forever lost type of games. I thought, how cool a game set on a stormy night, searching an empty house to find your lost family. Well...NOPE that’s not this game. It is in fact a long, drawn-out and highly BORING story of a teenage girl in the mid- nineties finding acceptance and love. Even my description of this game is more exciting than the game itself. I thought it would have puzzles or be even a tiny bit exciting. It is not. I kept thinking there would be something creepy or a plot twist somewhere, but again, nothing. The ending was more lame then the beginning. Nothing was gained except by the company in the form of the money I shelled out for this pointless teenaged massively b-rated mini story of boringness.
