Just wanted to share a couple of really nice pieces of fanart we received recently: two pieces by Janice Chu, a concept artist at Digital Extremes in Canada, and clearly a big Gone Home fan 🙂
These should be just right for your Retina iPad or iPhone, or easily croppable for an Android device. Enjoy!
We want to thank Janice again for making this awesome art. So glad to be able to share it!
To all of you who have been following us since the beginning, and to all the new players who are just now joining us this holiday season, we want to say thank you for playing Gone Home! As a little show of appreciation, we made wallpapers of our snowy holiday house for you to use! Consider them early Christmas presents:
I spy a Christmas Duck…
Thanks again for sticking with us, and we all hope you’re having a wonderful holiday. Cheers!
HOLY COW!! Gone Home was among the winners in the 2013 Spike VGX Awards!!

Gone Home was awarded both Best Independent Game and Best PC Game! This is a huge deal, and we want to thank the organizers of the awards, the judges, and everyone who’s played Gone Home and supported us from day one! Here’s our official acceptance video that we made for the show:
Congrats to all this year’s winners and nominees. Can’t wait to have this little guy up on our mantelpiece!
It’s been an exciting month or so. First of all, a week or two ago we found out that we are nominated for THREE Spike VGX Awards! The VGX is the newly-rebranded version of the Spike VGAs, which you may have seen on TV in years past. This year Gone Home is nominated for Best PC Game and Best Independent Game, and The Fullbright Company is nominated for Studio of the Year (alongside Irrational Games, Naughty Dog, and Rockstar North!!) This is really, really incredible for us. The VGX will air all day at http://www.spike.com/vgx on December 7. Tune in to see whether we walk away with any statues…!
Secondly, now is an awesome time to grab Gone Home (for yourself or a friend!) on Steam, Humble, or straight from us at www.gonehomegame.com! It’s the Autumn Sale from now until Dec 3, and Gone Home is available for 50% off its normal price. Thanks so much to everybody who’s bought and played Gone Home– and for everybody that will during this awesome sale!
Happy Thanksgiving, and talk to you again soon,
One of the most exciting things about making Gone Home was getting to work with so many talented musicians. We got everyone from classic Riot Grrrl bands, to local garage rockers, to our friend Chris Remo’s music into the game, resulting in a really unique sound and feel.
So today we’re announcing that we’ve worked with all these musicians to offer a rad new way to get Gone Home and a TON of music, all for a kind of crazily low price. Starting today on www.gonehomegame.com you can get Gone Home plus four FULL albums of music from the game, all for $25. So, for $5 more than the normal price of the game, you get Gone Home plus full album downloads of Calculated by Heavens to Betsy, Pottymouth by Bratmobile, Gone Home’s original score (Chris Remo’s GH:OST), and The Youngins are Hardcore by Portland garage band The Youngins! ALSO, if you’ve already bought the game and just want a sweet deal on those four albums, we’re offering them as a discounted bundle on their own– 4 full albums for $15.
We want to thank the kind folks at Kill Rock Stars, and The Youngins and Chris for all their help getting this deal together.
Alright! So head on over to www.gonehomegame.com and check it out! And tell your friends! Gone Home + 4 Albums seems like a pretty awesome stocking stuffer…
