Midnight City, the indie game publishing arm of Majesco Entertainment, has announced that they will be bringing the critically acclaimed PC title Gone Home to consoles this fall. A specific date and what platforms the title will be coming to have not been announced as of this time.
In a post on their official website, The Fullbright Company’s Steve Gaynor explained why they wanted to partner with Midnight City on this project.
“That’s why we were so glad when we started talking to Casey Lynch at Midnight City, Majesco’s new indie publishing label. Casey’s got a great background in media and PR, and the folks at Midnight City know exactly what an indie needs out of a publisher these days– to take on the role of a service provider that gets all the logistics done to the highest level of quality possible and helps get the word out to a new audience about why they should care about this game, without trying to own the IP or get in the way of the existing relationship we have with our players. We weren’t looking for a traditional publisher– and Midnight City is anything but.”
Fullbright and Gone Home burst onto the scene last summer and in our review of the title, we praised it for its stellar writing and fun investigative mechanics.
We will have more coverage of the console version of Gone Home in the coming weeks when Midnight City and The Fullbright Company are ready to talk. Stay tuned!
