Everyone loves a good story. Even better are the great tales that are told with passion, and real verve.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, from Brighton based development studio The Chinese Room, tells many tales. Ultimately it’s the tale of two recently married scientists, doctors Stephen Appleton, and Kate Collins. It’s June 1984, and Stephen returns to his hometown, the fictional rural village of Yaughton, along with an apprehensive Kate to work for a year at Yaughton’s observatory. Their project? An astronomical pattern they have been studying, with an alignment event due to occur sometime after their arrival.
