‘Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture’ coming to PC!

Everybody's Gone to the RaptureAre you a fan of narrative-driven walking simulators? Do you like games like Firewatch, and Gone Home? Do you not currently own a PS4?

If you’ve answered yes to the above questions, then you’re in luck.

The indie studio behind Dear Esther, The Chinese Room, have announced that their latest game, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, will be released on PC sometime too. Rapture launched last year as a PS4 exclusive, but rumours have persisted for a while now that it would be coming to PC sometime soon.

The Chinese Room confirmed the announcement via twitter:

 

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s the official synopsis:

Yaughton, Shropshire. 06:37am 6th June 1984.

Deep within the Shropshire countryside, the village of Yaughton stands empty. Toys lie forgotten in the playground, the wind blows quarantine leaflets around the silent churchyard. Down on Appleton’s farm, crops rustle untended. The birds lie where they have fallen.

Strange voices haunt the radio waves as uncollected washing hangs listlessly on the line. The televisions are tuned to vacant channels. Above it all, the telescopes of the Observatory point out at dead stars and endless darkness. And someone remains behind, to try and unravel the mystery.

Immerse yourself in a rich, deep adventure from award-winning developer The Chinese Room and investigate the last days of Yaughton Valley. Uncover the traces of the vanished community; discover fragments of events and memories to piece together the mystery of the apocalypse.

And here’s the launch trailer from last year…
