Gone Home coming to consoles

Midnight City will be helping The Fullbright Company bring Gone Home (Shacknews' Best of 2013 #3) to unspecified consoles in the near future.

Shacknews was proud to name Gone Home as one of our best games of 2013, as it was one of the most memorable narrative-based experiences in recent memory. The Fullbright Company is now looking to share its tale with an even larger audience, as it's joined forces with publisher Midnight City to bring Gone Home to unspecified consoles this fall.

Studio co-founder Steve Gaynor wrote on the Fullbright Company blog that they had always hoped to bring Gone Home to consoles, but didn't have the resources to deal with the console certification process or develop specific console ports. Until Midnight City stepped in to help with the logistical end of Gone Home's console port.

More information on Gone Home's console port will arrive in the coming weeks. In the meantime, it's on Steam right now, if you'd rather not wait to explore the Greenbriar house for the first time.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      'Unspecified consoles'?

      You mean like the Lynx? Or maybe the Virtual Boy?

        Probably SNES, published by the same company that did Adventurous The Cat Returns.

          Well if they are going to SNES, they gotta get LJN involved somehow.

          You know, for that extra bit of quality.

          I was hoping for the Ouya.

            The Ouya seems like it would be pretty fun!

      I couldn't stand this game and I don't see how it's going to be economically viable to launch it on a console, given that it's more of a indie storytelling game than something geared towards the console audience.

        God forbid someone releases a game that isn't a modern shooter to the "console audience"
