Game release: “No Longer Home” (PC)

Humble Grove and Fellow Traveller‘s semi-autobiographical adventure game No Longer Home is about saying goodbye and embracing an uncertain future.

Personal stories in indie games aren’t new, and a couple of these have already been featured in one form or another here. Having a game tell something about the developers deciding to make a game and staying in touch after being separated makes it is somehow special, though. The story follows university graduates Bo and Ao preparing to leave their flat in South London and their old lives behind, with the former staying in England and the latter going back to Japan.

One goes through the everyday belongings of each character and experiences their daily activities, thus getting to know how they lived together and interacted with their environment and friends. It all becomes a bit surreal, though, as one meets new flatmate Lu who looks like an animal with quite a few eyes too many. Still, despite this, the story should feel familiar to anyone who knows what it means to say goodbye and start a new life somewhere else.

The game is out now on PC with a 20% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, August 6, 2021, at 12 AM UTC. There’s also a Farewell Edition which includes the soundtrack.
