Gone Home was my personal game of the year for 2013, but it had one glaring issue -- it wasn't available on console. I didn't have the opportunity to share that experience with console gamers. Thank goodness that's now changing, as The Fullbright Company is bringing Gone Home to consoles soon care of a publishing deal with Midnight City. Soon no one will have an excuse as to why they skipped out on this game.
The Fullbright Company's co-founder Steve Gaynor couldn't help but share his excitement at finally bringing Gone Home to consoles:
"Ever since we released Gone Home on PC, we've had people asking us-- 'When's it coming to console? We've been looking and looking for the right partner to help us, and finally after much searching, Midnight City fit the bill. They have a great understanding of what an indie needs, how to get the word out about the game, and help us get the best versions of the game possible to all those players that have been waiting patiently to experience Gone Home in their living rooms. Viva la Midnight City!"
Unfortunately no specific console have yet been announced for the port. Obviously the hope is that it will reach both generations of Sony and Microsoft's consoles, but until Midnight City confirms that we'll have to sit and wait patiently. Gah, what a perfect game to include as the PlayStation 4's PS+ title of the month. It would be one of the best gifts Sony could give.
Expect more information on Gone Home soon, but I'd highly recommend picking it up on PC if waiting doesn't sound like a good idea.
