Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. This is a weird game but I liked it. You basically just walk around a village in Shropshire (where everyone has the farmer accent and have names like “Doris” and “Bert”) which is eerily empty. I played this with Dan and we were taking it in turns to walk around. Each area of the village has a little light in it which represents the memories (or echoes?) of one of the people that live in the village. As you wander around listening to them you uncover more and more about what happened, some of it gets very sad, particularly the scene at the end of Lizzie’s story in the holiday camp (won’t say what it is though in case of spoilers). The graphics as you wander around are absolutely breath taking, it’s almost like you’re actually there walking through a field in the British countryside. It’s a very pretty game, I particularly liked when each ‘story’ ended and it became night time and all the stars appeared in the sky, that was beautiful. I also think that the fact that they don’t show any people helps because sometimes you’ll have a game that has lovely environment graphics but then a person will pop up on the screen, they’ll look weird and it will spoil it.
Which game do you think has great graphics? Have you played Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture? If so I’m curious to know what you thought about the end! I was a little bit disappointed but I suppose I’d had an idea in mind of what I thought it would be and it wasn’t that.
