The Chinese Room on its PS4-exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

Eurogamer writes:

"Last week we did a postmortem on The Chinese Room's experimental horror sequel Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, and as fascinating as it was to hear all the decisions that went into developing that, I couldn't help wonder about the Brighton-based studio's upcoming PS4-exclusive first-person exploration game, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture."

awesome interview. the kinds of devs the world needs. very exciting and thoughtful stuff. even that last bit about making doom or system shock. tells you how much these guys enjoy and care about creative and great games. exciting to see them break through commercially on the console

I dont know about this game... dear esther was meh and I didn't like the path they went with amnesia machine for pigs.

That's how I felt about Dear Esther and I'm slightly worried about A Machine for Pigs as well (good thing I grabbed on sale). Whomever they had as writer for DE seemed to be a stylist with language, but chained behind the rarely stimulating walking sim it was made things rather boring. Even the vagueness + changing text through each playthrough made things even more dull after I tried to give it another chance.

The worst kind of exclusive, getting paid $$$$ for the exclusivity when the game was announced for PC


Aceman181985d ago

oh but it was ok when M$ did it huh? gotta love the double standard on this site lol.

Show me an example of a game that was announced for one platform but then becomes exclusive on another platform

What do you want? Something that's best for yourself, or something that's best for the game?

TCR are getting support to make a game they couldn't make by themselves. I wouldn't call it a bribe. This company doesn't need bribes to get people excited about developing for their console:


"We don’t have enough money or production expertise to make this game without help. We don’t think we can raise enough through Kickstarter or public alpha to make this happen. We could do with production support on a game this scale. We’ve always wanted to make a console game. Publishers have bad reputations all too often. Hey, Sony Santa Monica are great though. We’ve met them a few times and really like them and their attitude."

"Also, PS4 is starting to look very cool as a platform. All eggs thrown into singular basket, Sony Santa Monica contacted, everybody likes each other, lots of love for the project. Long dark night of the soul mulling over implications of shifting across to console. Mix of pragmatism and excitement about the possibilities win out."

It's the $$$$ talking, of course they will now say they can't make the game without Sony $$$$. And what's stopping them from still making a pc version, oh because $ony don't want them to

Bathyj1985d ago

Uh, because Sony are the publishers.

So basically this game would not be getting made with this budget or level of assistance without them. They would not be able to make the game they wanted without help.

are you whining because its no longer on PC my god man it ain't that serious lol.

you know how many PC only games that don't come to consoles and people don't whine about it lol?

aquamala1985d ago (Edited 1985d ago )

which one? Halo 1 and 2 are on PC. if you're talking about the series becomes exclusive after that, that's not the same as what's happening here

Pintheshadows1985d ago (Edited 1985d ago )

Halo. Announced for PC and then made an Xbox exclusive. Sure, it got a PC release eventually but it took ages. People were not happy. Kieron Gillen who was at PC Gamer at the time in particular.

That is exactly the same.

Your just made that it isn't on Xbox One.

P.S Lately Xbox fans have beeb getting lamer by the minute with their trolling. Its really sad to see since they used to brag about games, 1080P resolution and all their games running in 60FPS. Now all they do is bash exclusive indie titles that Sony has.

SoulSercher6201985d ago

Wow the worst kind of troll. I bet you wish this was on Xbone don't you
