Before hitting it big with Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, developers The Chinese Room released a game called Dear Esther, popularising the term ‘walking simulator.’ And now it’s coming to consoles.

Dear Esther also coming to consoles soon

The game is actually a good deal more than that, and we’re going to call it a ‘narrative adventure.’ It puts the player on a gorgeously appointed island with the freedom to explore as they will. As you follow the path a voiceover will reveal the story which took place here, with emotional connections to your own life and wonderful poetry and delivery. It’s a unique experience and together with its wonderful design is well worth seeking out.
