The Fullbright Company, a new indie outfit founded by former BioShock designer Steve Gaynor, revealed its first project: a 3D exploration adventure game, titled Gone Home.
A post on The Fullbright Company's blog gives some background on its first opus. Gone Home places players inside of a "modern, residential locale," which they must explore to learn more about the home and what happened to its inhabitants. Players will be able to interact with physics-based elements in the environment as they search through clues and rifle through cabinets. Think: sort of similar to Shenmue, but with way fewer Gashapon machines.
The studio also revealed a two-minute gameplay preview of the title, both of which are posted below. The blog post stresses that the footage is culled from an early version of the title — Fullbright is focusing its efforts on completing the first half of the title, adding that only 5 percent of art and sound assets are currently in the game. The team will also be going dark after today's announcement until the game's development is further along.
"This is the biggest chunk of Gone Home that we're going to show until we do a full trailer and reveal, probably later this year," the studio's blog reads.
