Sam was a lesbian and she ran away from home with her friend Lonnie. What happened to the parents? Hell if I know!
Girl meets girl, girl falls in love with girl, girl goes to army but girl can't do it because she loves the girl, girl runs away with girl... End.

Parents were at some sort of couples resort. Apparently there were some (minor?) relationship issues.

At the end of the game, you discover that Sam has ran away with her girlfriend and the parents are at a couples retreat trying to patch up the marriage since the mom had an (assumed) affair with the new ranger at her station.

It turns out the the house was haunted and that Gandhi was killed right there in that very house. Hitler also stay there during his visit to the US, and so did the 1994 Denver Broncos. Sam was kidnapped by said ghosts, and Lonnie turns out to be a figure of her immagination.

Probably so deep in the closet you're coughing up lint balls.

When was it revealed that her parents were at a couples resort? I must have missed that. I assumed they were out looking for Sam, but apparently I was wrong.

There is a parmplet for the resort in the greenhouse with June 5-7 circled and there's a note for Sam in the garage telling her they went away for the weekend.

There was a note in the garage, just on the wall.
"SAM - Your mother and I will be away for a long weekend celebrating our anniversary...."
Plus I think there was this holiday flyer thing, with a date circled "booked".

What happened is that I discovered you have absolutely no reading comprehension or attention span whatsoever.

Haha I just looked at theRadBrad's walkthrough of this game on YouTube without actually purchasing it. Quite worth it as you still get to experience the fun, (and scare at some points) plus the ending without spending like 20 bucks...

Just an option for those who don't want to buy the game :P

Also the dad inherited the house from his uncle who likely abused him in some way back in the Fall of 1963. Otherwise, the main threads are that the father is a struggling author who is hitting the sauce a bit, mom just got a promotion and is working with a handsome new dude that she kinda has a thing for and might be considering an affair. Daughter is in love with a girl from school and going through very typical teenage turmoil while learning how to deal with relationships, sex, and where she "fits in" in life. Obviously there is more to it and you get to fill in a lot of the details since they are not spelled out. The riot grrrl music is great and brings me back to my high school years. In the end, nobody is home because the parents are at a couples' retreat and the younger sister has run off with her girlfriend who decided not to join the army after all. One of the things that gets me about this story is that nothing is tied up at all. If anything, the "drama" would probably be ten times greater a few days from the setting of the game. When the parents get back, was their retreat successful or are they disappointed? When they find their daughter has run off, do they flip out? How long until Sam and Lonnie realize you can't live on love alone? Find out next week on "Gone Home, Then Immediately Left For Second Trip Abroad Once I Realized My Family Was a Cluster---".
