In this special spoilercast, the Quit or Continue podcast guys try to unpick the story of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, and discuss what really happened to the locals of Yaughton. And did Harvey the dog make it out alive?!
I enjoyed all the bits where there was real emotion in the conversations you'd come across. Wasn't too impressed by the last chapter though, bit up its own rapture if you ask me.
Totally agree. The last chapter was a real letdown that added nothing to the story.
The Rapture bit just bugs me. Why drop that hint if you aren't going to follow through on it in any meaningful way? Plus, feels like they could have focused more on just the main two characters, like with When The Wind Blows. It felt like the story was about them, but i ended up not really caring what happened at the conclusion.
The game was a refreshing change of pace from the usual killing zombies and Nazis that we're so used to in gaming, but it wasn't perfect. Definitely a step in the right direction, and a great way to expand gaming as a medium, but very much early days. I'd love to be able to share these experiences with people who aren't traditional gamers, like you would a book or a film, but we're not quite there yet.
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture might not be for everyone. I enjoyed it, but it's not a game that I'd play again. I think it's something that I'll always remember though as it unique to anything that I've played before. It's nice to have diversity.
It's interesting game, just one thing... walking speed is really god forsaken slow...
