Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Summary
The Chinese Room is primarily known for highly atmospheric first-person exploration games like Dear Esther and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. If you’re a jerk, you might call them walking simulator specialists. Even their take on horror, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs was focused more on atmosphere than traditional game mechanics. So it’s with some surprise that we’ve learned they’re now working on an RPG heavily inspired by pen-and-paper gaming.
Various news outlets have announced that The Chinese Room's exploration adventure game Everybody's Gone to the Rapture has been officially confirmed for PC, according to a letter sent to them. The PC port will evidently be running on the CryEngine engine, so there's a good chance it'll be more detailed than the PlayStation original.
New evidence has arisen that Dear Esther and Amnesia developer The Chinese Room's critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 game Everybody's Gone to the Rapture will be coming to PC. This time, it's promotional material from AMD that's given away the existence of the upcoming port.
Dear Esther was an interesting experimental PC game which was a first person adventure with almost no puzzles, just exploration. Developer The Chinese Room, headed by Dan Pinchbeck, has announced the spiritual successor to the adventure game, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.
