The Almost Gone is one of those games that entices you in from the first screen. It’s gorgeous, filled with wonderful ideas and driven by a story that makes you want to keep playing.
The game takes place in a series of dioramas. You need to explore every corner of these wonderfully rendered settings, uncovering more of the story as you play. You’re solving puzzles to discover just what’s happened to you.
There’s a contemporary setting, and the story is written by award-winning novelist Joost Vandecasteele. There are five different chapters for you to explore, opening up more of the deep and engaging story the further you get into the experience.
