Indie adventure game Gone Home comes to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 12, developer Fullbright has announced. On an update on the studio’s blog, Fullbright co-founder Steve Gaynor said that:
Been a while, but we’ve got some exciting news today: Gone Home is finally coming to consoles– and in just a month! I recorded a very special message about it.. check it out below!
I think the above video pretty much says it all– but let me just say how excited we are to put the game in front of a whole new audience of players. Ever since Gone Home came out we’ve wanted to be able to bring it to people who maybe aren’t PC gamers, or don’t have a good enough computer, or who just want to play in their living room, maybe to share the experience with a friend or loved one from the comfort of their couch. Our goal wasn’t to add or change things, but just to bring the game that players know & love onto consoles in the best possible form we could. We’re really excited for you all to get your hands on it!
Owners of the PC version may find the news that console versions won’t have any additional content rather disappointing, but Gaynor clearly thinks Gone Home is perfect the way it is, and who can blame him?
The game received glowing reviews all across the internet, and you can read our own right here.
