Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a first-person adventure game developed by The Chinese Room, the creators of Dear Esther and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
The game tells a story of a silent apocalypse. The action takes place in a small village in the Shopshire county, England, during the very last day of our world. The emphasis is put on an intriguing story, while the core of gameplay is interaction with characters and the environment. The players are free to do anything and the plot is not influenced by their actions alone. Instead, the virtual world is inhabited by six other characters that live their own lives if left alone. Of course, one of the main attractions is interacting with them and influencing their behavior.
The world is fully open. Its size makes walking from one corner to the other take 20 minutes of real time. At the same time, the player always gets only one hour of gameplay. Once the time is up, the game (and the world) is over. What we do in these short 60 minutes becomes our own story. Everything is designed in such a way that with each walkthrough we get to discover new things. Despite the fact that the game is story-driven, its environment is fully interactive, which means that we may, for example, open all doors and manipulate every object and getting to some locations takes some serious effort.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is powered by CryEngine 3.
