The part where I followed the light

Yesterday was the first of three posts to showcase the pictures I took for the game Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture by The Chinese Room.

Here is the second post and here is me trying to explain the storyline a little bit…

Very quickly you realise that you are on your own. In the village. The only things that hint at what has happened are the radios that you find throughout the village, and sometimes the telephones. The other thing that seems a little out of place is the little ball of light that you find, and follow – I don’t even question whether or not to follow it, I just do. As the little ball of light takes you to different places around the village, scenes from the villagers life before, during and at the last moments of the rapture play out before you. There are six characters whose memories you see, these being Jeremy, Wendy, Frank, Lizzie, Stephen and Kate. As you watch these memories you find out that some sort of disease has spread across the village, causing the villagers severe side-affects, such as nosebleeds, and ending in death or disappearance. Kate and Stephen, being married scientists, are basically the people ‘responsible’ for finding the energy or pattern that is the cause for the outbreak. When it becomes apparent that the cause of this cannot be contained, Stephen makes a very hard decision, and the reason as to why no-one is around becomes clearer…

I really don’t want to go into too much detail because of spoilers, and it’s actually quite a complex game that I need to have at least one more play through of. But the game narrative is set up so beautifully.

It’s also much more than the story. I hope that you can see from my pictures below that it is such a gorgeous game; living in a town (in real life) where I am surrounded by little villages, it really does feel like I’m wondering through one of them in what starts out as a sunny day.

Also, the music. The music takes this game to a whole different level. In fact, if you have Spotify I would suggest that you look up `Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture’ and take a listen to it – I have, and the game soundtrack album by Jessica Curry is majestic. Very reminiscent of God of War actually.

So here is the second instalment from my play through. The last of them tomorrow!

    Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is, by far, one of my favorite “walking simulator” games. The beautifully rendered quiet English village, the haunting music, and the story that creates this slight atmosphere of dread the whole time you’re walking around. I was playing this game late at night once, and some voiceover started suddenly and I was so immersed in the game world that I actually freaked out and shut off my game! There’s really nothing quite like this game.

      I can understand that…I played it well into the night/early morning and was scared because I didn’t know what was going to happen and because of the talking suddenly starting! haha such a great game and now I want to play even more like it, which is always good.
