IGF finalist Gone Home to include music from Heavens to Betsy, Bratmobile

Independent Games Festival finalist Gone Home, developed by The Fullbright Company, will include music from famous riot grrrl bands Heavens to Betsy and Bratmobile.

Started in the early 1990s, riot grrrl was an underground feminist punk rock movement that often addressed women's issues. In Gone Home, players follow the story of Samantha Greenbriar, whose life is changed after a friend introduces her to riot grrrl music. The game takes place in 1995.

The game will include six tracks from Heavens to Betsy's Calculated and Bratmobile's Pottymouth. Fullbright co-founder Steve Gaynor says the team is "psyched" to include both bands.

"It's really goddamn amazing to have the opportunity for this music to be in Gone Home," Gaynor said. "Authenticity is our number one priority, and the inclusion of tracks by Heavens to Betsy and Bratmobile really drives home the era and the place and the feelings surrounding the story of Gone Home."

Check out the trailer above to check out gameplay and hear "Some Special" by Bratmobile. Gone Home will launch for Windows PC, Linux and Mac later this year.
