Gone Home developer Fullbright recently announced that its most recent game, Tacoma, is heading to the PlayStation 4. Tacoma released back in August of 2017 and has been available on PC, Mac, and Xbox One platforms. Now, pre-orders have begun for its PS4 version.
Fullbright co-Founder, Steve Gaynor, posted to PlayStation’s blog with a few details on Tacoma‘s upcoming re-release on the new platform. When it comes to the game itself, Fullbright’s goal was to double down on the “emotional stories and immersive places” its games are known for. Tacoma was designed to “bring the player closer to the story, putting them in the middle of the moments these characters experienced, giving players new interactive tools to discover every detail of the story as it unfolds,” according to Gaynor.
Tacoma places players on a high-tech space station in the year 2088. By using the ship’s resources, players must locate its missing crew by placing themselves in their shoes and experiencing a timeline of events leading up to their disappearance. “In one scene you might hear a heated argument going on in one hidden corridor, and then rewind and find that a tender moment between two crewmembers was happening at the exact same time in just the next room,” Gaynor offered as an example. “Or you might experience a disastrous explosion rock the station while observing events in the administrator’s office, then rewind the timeline to discover what each and every other member of the crew was doing leading up to that crucial point.”
Tacoma is also arriving on the PlayStation store with a notable addition. “With Tacoma’s arrival on PlayStation, we’re also adding a brand new mode to the game: the all-new Developer Commentary Mode, featuring over two hours of audio commentary from the writers, designers, artists and programmers who brought Tacoma to life!” added Gaynor. The commentary includes thoughts from the entire team about their world in the game, their characters, and “all the ins and outs” of building each part of the game.
Tacoma releases for the PlayStation 4 on May 8.
