Product Details:

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture tells the story of the inhabitants of a remote English valley who are caught up in world-shattering events beyond their control or understanding. Made by The Chinese Room - the studio responsible for the hauntingly beautiful Dear Esther - this tale of how people respond in the face of grave adversity is a non-linear, open-world experience that pushes innovative interactive storytelling to the next level.

Over the course of the game, the player slowly pieces together the fate of the valley from the fragmentary memories of the people who made it their home. By finding and interacting with the traces of these lost lives, the player gradually learns about the stories and relationships of the inhabitants - how they lived, and how they died. All this is accomplished through revolutionary environmental storytelling - what you see and hear in Rapture is just as important as what you do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tremendous Beauty and Compelling Story If you have ever been to Meow Wolf's House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe, New Mexico, you will find a similar adventure here. The premise of the game is that you are the last person in this tiny English village and you as the player have no idea what has happened with the goal of learning as much as you can about what went down in this village. There are no points, there are no enemies, there are very little controls other than walking around and interacting with certain objects with the X button or controller tilt. So if you are looking for a game which requires dexterity, skill, problem solving, fights, puzzles, competition or other such mechanics then this is NOT your game. However, if you are interested in a mystery story-telling game with an unbelievably compelling story, unique premise, stunning graphics and a healthy amount of exploration and collectable finding, then look no further. To begin, the game is absolutely gorgeous and immersive. The detail, lighting, music, and setting are so beautiful that you will love simply wandering and enjoying the scenery. Then comes in the mystery of what happened. It is ALL up to you how much you learn and understand about the events of the game. If you simply follow the basic linear path the game provides via mysterious floating orbs then you will end up missing 90% of the game and being disappointed. But if you take the time to look everywhere and find as many of the collectables as you can you will get a lot out of the game. The downsides of the game include the terribly slow movement speed of your character (which can be sped up a minute amount by holding down R2), some glitchy moments with crashing or graphical errors, and low replay-ability (that is if you were satisfied enough that you understood the mystery of the game the first time through). Overall, its spectacular and I highly recommend it to anyone who finds the premise of art exploration mystery games appealing. If you are impatient, don’t care about storylines, or have trouble paying attention to details then go ahead and pass this game up. You will be lost and confused and think the game is bad. But it’s not, you just have to be the right person to enjoy it. I was definitely one of those people.
