The follow-up to Gone Home is a dark sci-fi adventure

The studio behind the acclaimed Gone Home has just revealed its next adventure: a science fiction game called Tacoma. We don’t know much about the game, which was unveiled tonight at The Game Awards in Las Vegas, but, just like Gone Home, it’s a first person experience. The game is set in “Lunar Transfer Station Tacoma, situated at Lagrange Point 1 between the Earth and our moon.” The tagline reads simply “What mysteries await you, 200,000 miles from Earth?” Tacoma is expected to launch in 2016.

T-Mobile has been the only major American carrier to embrace Sony’s Xperia family in recent times, however that relationship is now intensifying and should be followed by others soon as well.
