Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture trailer and a peek at the soundtrack

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is the new project by the creators of the critically acclaimed walking simulator Dear Esther.

Apparently, in Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture there’s going to be even more walking. Here are a few quotes I lifted from the PS Blog:

…Rapture is set in a remote valley in June 1984 and is a story about people and how they live with each other. But it’s also about the end of the world…

…The game is all about discovery. It’s open-world so you have the freedom to explore wherever you like, visiting areas in an order you define, and the story is written to allow this whilst making sure every player has a strong dramatic experience. It’s a type of storytelling that is completely unique to games. The choices you make as a player have a direct impact on how you understand the story – the more you explore and interact, the deeper you are drawn into Rapture’s world…

…Our approach is to create a game that you can utterly immerse yourself in. Yaughton Valley, where Rapture takes place, is a living, breathing world. The world of Rapture is not just a backdrop; it’s a character in its own right…

Actually, the whole thing sounds pretty neat but please note: Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and it’s supposed to release sometime next year. Anyway, The Chinese Room has also released one of the tracks from Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture soundtrack.
