    A true visual novel that draws you in and leaves you wanting more. Fantastic voice acting and musical score really just provide icing on the cake here. Very worthwhile!

    A leisurely stroll through a beautiful apocalypse. Rapture is stirring and heartfelt, but may be too slow and hands-off for some.

    It's a fascinating and moving paper chase, but having to walk around so much is quite annoying.

    A bit better than ADR1FT but less than Firewatch, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is a very good observation game that boasts impressive graphics, a great soundtrack and a nice story. The only drawback is the sluggish pace at which the player can move.

    Everybody's Gone to the Rapture it's an interactive tale that brings to the table a powerful story.

    The stunning graphics and the exceptional music, as well as voice overs, are not enough for a game that lacks appropriate optimization and a satisfactory interpretation of the events we tail after, packed in no longer than 5 hours. A very promising narrative experience that proves inadequate in many key areas.

Philosophy of life dressed up in a costume of messianic parousia. Words can not express, what has been done here. "Simulation of walking"? Yea. But your empathy and brain cells must run harder than both your CPU and GPU. World design is wonderful, graphics are great and music by Jessica Curry leaves man speechless. Expand

    This is not a game.
    Visually speaking, EGTR is incredible. Rocking two 1080Tis in SLI, I struggled to maintain a decent framerate in UHD. The textures are spot on, the game look crisp and the level of detail is incredible as well. The audio is nice, as is the voice acting.
    While the story itself is interesting, the game sometimes becomes boring as you can't move but at a very slow speed. The fact that you can't jump, forcing you to make incredibly long detours when facing a 10cm-high fence, is also gamebreaking imho.

It's a pretty great art piece but a piss poor game, technically it's a shocker, I had to play with the 30fps cap enabled on medium settings just to maintain a somewhat stable frame rate, 60fps was out of the question even on low settings. It is a very nice looking game, on the same level as The Vanishing of Ethan Carter which blew me away but with considerably worse performance (60fps solid in TVoEC). The video settings menu was almost completely empty with only the basics available. The audio was really great though, both the music and voice work, absolutely no complaints here. Gameplay wise, well there wasn't any, at all, you literally walk around (VERY slowly) and press X occasionally, a lot of games are falsely labelled as walking sims but this really was just that. This would have been a much better game with proper optimisation and a proper run button (there's a sad excuse for one where you hold R2 and you slowly build up speed but it's not always available and you barely move any faster).
