A downloadable game

They're Gone is a story driven, first person adventure/mystery game with modest puzzle aspects. You play the part of a young man returning from overseas to visit family. When you arrive there's a strange storm raging, you make your way to the house only to realize the power is out and everyone is missing. It's up to you to find out what happened and why they're gone...

The game is heavily influenced by The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Gone Home and will focus on story telling through exploration. There will be multiple indoor and outdoor levels allowing you to play a more direct path or to look at everything. The more you explore the more you'll learn, some exploration will be necessary to advance the story.

Please note, this is a demo level meant to give a general representation of how the game will be. The demo consists of only the first level of the game taking place outside the mansion. It's an alpha build of the level so there's placeholder art and voice-overs and much of the story and puzzles have not been added in yet.

Minimum System Requirements

  • Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64 bit only - 32 bit not supported)
  • 4 GB RAM
