Annapurna Interactive announced that the Fullbright Company developed narrative adventure Gone Home will make its way onto Nintendo Switch on August 23.
In celebration of the title’s 5th anniversary, the developer has brought the game to a new audience on Nintendo Switch. The game takes place on June 7, 1995, when a girl named Katie Greenbriar returns home from overseas to visit her family in a town called Boon County, Oregon. Throughout the game, the player will get to know Katie as well as her family as they explore the house and all of the contents inside.
Gone Home is an exploration game where the player will explore a house in the first-person. Players will be able to interact with objects and Katie will narrate the importance. Certain objects will progress the game’s story and the player will learn more about Katie’s life.
Gone Home is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Author’s take: When released, Gone Home blew away many gamers who saw themselves as strictly action fans. I remember hardcore Call of Duty fans telling me about how much they enjoyed Gone Home, which led to them enjoying games like Firewatch. As a fan of visual novels, I have respect for this type of storytelling and find that this is the perfect way for new fans to get invested in this genre. Hopefully, the full story hasn’t been spoiled to every gamer by now.
