Witty and melancholic, Gone Home is a triumphant exploration of a beautifully textured family space.

Video gaming meets 90's family drama in a finely-crafted piece of interactive fiction whose atmospheric story is intelligently articulated in a very compelling way. While Gone Home's experience is rather short, its characters will stay with you for days after you've finished the game - despite you never meeting them.

Despite there not being many engaging elements, I find that Gone Home is still a superb example of a narrative journey. We'll have to see in another five or fifty years just how Gone Home has set the stage for future immersive simulators.

One of the best games of 2013 is finally out on consoles. If you haven't done so already, you owe it to yourself to experience a beautiful story and some very clever, but understated, game design.
