'Gone Home" was a modded game setting made from the game Amnesia, brought to life by Fullbright Company. The premise is that a girl named Kate is finally traveling home from a stint in Europe, though the player doesn't really know what the young lady was studying. When she returns home, she must retrieve the key from the cardboard by an old holiday decoration and get inside to see her family.
The house is completely empty. Some of the lights are on inside but there is not a soul in sight. Drawers are opened and hastily shut and rain begins to beat down on the shutters outside, adding an almost ominous element to the game. However, horror is not what Kate is home to discover. She is there to find out why there is no one home to greet her.
Kate must travel through the 'four' floors of the house in order to put the pieces of this delicate puzzle together. Apparently no one has heard the message on the answering machine that she was coming home early. Everything that could be locked up is. Kate's journey begins as soon as she walks through that threshold. What has happened to everyone and what's with the notes she keeps finding from her sister Sam?
