Ex-BioShock dev's new game is 'Gone Home' - video

Explorative first-person game revealed with first footage

'Gone Home' is the title of the first game from new start-up studio The Fullbright Company.


Who the hell are they? TFC is made up of three developers who have "in various capacities" worked on big games like BioShock 2 and the Minerva's Den DLC, XCOM, and BioShock Infinite.

Gone Home, it's newly-revealed game, looks like an explorative first-person game which has the player digging around highly interactive environments to find stuff and, probably, get through a number of puzzles and obstacles.

The developer released the below 'pre-alpha' footage to show off its work, with a brief explanation of what you're looking at:

"Hopefully the video demonstrates the basics of what Gone Home is all about: exploring a modern, residential locale, and discovering the story of what happened there by investigating a deeply interactive gameworld. We're really interested in pushing toward simulation, both in the sense of the physics system but also in allowing the player to open any door or drawer they'd logically be able to and examine what's inside, down to small details. If we do it right, these interactive and simulation elements will work together to make you that much more invested in discovering the story woven into the environment."

TFC says it'll reveal more with a proper trailer "probably later this year".
