Indie hit Gone Home is getting a console port, developer Fullbright has confirmed.
It will be published by Majesco’s indie publishing label Midnight City, whose other titles include Slender: The Arrival, Costume Quest 2, The Bridge and Double Dragon Neon.
When we started making Gone Home, we decided that we were going to launch first only on PC/Mac/Linux, for a lot of good reasons,” Fullbright founder Steve Gaynor explained.
We wouldn’t need to worry about the technical limitations of last-gen hardware; we wouldn’t need to deal with console certification/submission/age rating/etc; and we could distribute the game directly, DRM-free as well as through Steam. But we always hoped we’d eventually be able to bring the game to consoles– we just didn’t know exactly how we should do it.
We’re a very small team and weren’t ready to devote months of development time to doing the ports ourselves, but we also knew that finding the right partner to get the job done right would be a real challenge. Would it be worth it to bring the game to consoles at all?”
Details about platforms and release dates will be revealed at a later date.
