Just under a year after the launch of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, a "walking simulator" about dealing with loss in Shropshire in 1984, it won three BAF…
I read mixed reviews and feelings about this game but it was definitely the talk of the town for that time. It's a shame this studio couldn't keep thier doors open. "Eurogamer understands most of the staff ended up at Studio GoBo" Interesting, this is the studio that is rumored to be making some mmo for Xbox. (I believe) Good luck to these guys
with the amount people that were hyping these guys games up on here and releasing them on a large install base like the ps4, i wouldn’t have thought they would close down. i guess releasing on a larger install base (like lawbreakers as well) won’t guarantee them sales. good luck to those that moved on to new adventures
Some people always have to add console wars to a discussion for no reason at all. The Chinese Room has had several games that didn't have successful sales numbers so they had to close. This is nothing new in the industry and it most certainly had nothing to do with ONE game.
I liked Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, except for the movement speed. Agonizingly slow to build up any speed. Hope these guys can make a comeback. I’d like to see what else they can do.
Really liked egttr. Nostalgic for me, and unique. I thought they just released a mobile game?
Great article. I beat EGTTR a few weeks ago, and didn't know there was a sprint button until 5 minutes ago. Never mind. I loved the atmosphere, and took so many screenshots in that game.
Man thats sad. I really liked their games.
