Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture was one of the most original titles of 2015. Sadly it only released on PS4, but that’s about to change.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture developer The Chinese Room revealed the news on twitter, announcing that the game is finally making its way to PC. No release date was given but with the news finally out in the open it’s safe to assume that it will be sooner rather than later.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a quaint tale about a small English village and the paranormal events that cause everyone in the town to disappear. As you wander through the town you’ll happen upon cylinders of light with the shimmering silhouettes of people suspended within them. Approaching these floating clusters of lights will initiate a conversation between two people, which in turn fleshes out the characters, the world and deepens the mystery.
The game was released to mostly positive reviews. Critics praised its full developed characters, gorgeous visuals, and tight world design. The game followed the recent trend of “walking simulators” – games that let the player wander around a beautifully realized world for the sole purpose of experiencing a story.
