Yes, it IS a game.
There's only so much to say without spoiling the game, but it's worth a go. Gone Home does a amazing
job building a cast of characters never actually physically encountered. Every little detail, Every object you can pick up, tells these peoples' stories. One character in particular, the sister, is so well characterized that despite having never seen her, I feel I know and sympathize with her more than a most characters in most games. Really, Gone Home is a game that simply would not work in any other medium.
You are not here to save the world, or even your family, you're just trying to figure out what happened to your family, and in the process patch together the events of the years you were gone. You don't shoot or cut or bludgeon, you just look. It's a better mystery game than most actual mystery games, because nobody helps you, you just read, listen, and discover entirely on your own.
The game is short, but that works in its favor; the content here is perfect for its length, and making it longer or shorter would have worsened the game. If the price seems too much for you, then get it on sale, because it's worth playing yourself. Basically, it's the gaming equivalent of a well-made short story, which is itself pretty remarkable. 10/10.
