Critic Reviews for No Longer Home
A deeply personal two-hour meditation on saying goodbye that invites you to channel your lived experiences and walk alongside its characters. It's a little sparse on the details, but No Longer Home still gives players plenty to chew on.
No Longer Home wishes to retell a point in two people's lives that impacted them both. Its minimalistic style and thoughtful writing carry the day hands down, even with its odd control choices. Even if point-and-click games aren't your thing, I still highly recommend giving No Longer Home a shot.
Overall, it was hard to care for Ao and Bo’s story. The dialog was a slog. The character’s perspectives often changed too fast. And while going over their dilemmas, again and again, I found myself not wanting to play anymore. I’d rather just go out for a beer and talk to them in person and let them know life is going to be okay. High school and college are but footnotes in hopefully a long healthy story of yourself. In the end, if you find yourself at this particular time in life, it might be worth experiencing their story. But if you’re past it, you may not find much here to resonate with.
Net of a poor technical sector, especially on Switch, No Longer Home is one of the most touching experiences of the year. Independent to the core, Humble Grove's game tells the dramas of everyday life in what is a semi-autobiography of its two authors, stuck in one of the most confused and difficult moments of their post-adolescence. It is a very short work, which can be completed in a single session of just over two hours, but capable of touching deeply.

A point-and-click, dialogue-driven adventure that tackles themes from the heart, that won't resonate with everyone.
Witness (or relive) the final moments of moving out of a student flat and into the throes of adulthood in No Longer Home. Pick through boxes, pallets, plus last conversations and goodbyes in this relaxing and relatable visual novel.
In terms of would I recommend the game… that's not easy to answer. Given the length of "play time"I would certainly start by suggesting waiting for a sale. If you are after a lot of interaction then I'd say avoid it. If you quite like choose your own adventures or indie theatre performances then this might just be up your alley. If you feel non binary or just overwhelmed at what life has in store for you while studying or after completing study… this might be the familiar voice you want to hear. It's far more an experience than a game so if that's your thing then give it a try, if not then look elsewhere.
Despite having a very short story, No Longer Home manages in this short game time to convey all the experience and melancholic sensation that changes can cause in our lives. If you identify in any way with the proposal of the narrative, you will probably feel extremely touched when playing it.
