Gone Home is set in 1995. The premise is that you came back from a long trip to find a note on the door. It was from your sister, Sam. She said she has left home and asked you not to find out why. The home is completely empty because your parents are on vacation. Since it is storming outside and you can’t watch TV, you decided to ransack the house to find out why Sam left. During that process, you uncovered some secrets about your family.
