Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, a first-person exploration game from Dear Esther developer The Chinese Room, will be coming to PlayStation 4 on August 11, according to creative director Dan Pinchbeck.

"We look back now at the number of story-driven, exploration-driven games that have been produced since and that’s an incredible thing to be part of. We stand alongside studios and developers who are committed to pushing at the boundaries of what games can be, and that’s being part of a tradition as old as gaming itself," Pinchbeck wrote in a PlayStation Blog article earlier today.

"This medium has always been about those boundaries, that pushing out, that bending and breaking of rules to do new things, and we hope Everybody's Gone to the Rapture will earn its place in that." The blog post also came with a new trailer that shows off the title's impressive visuals.

This game reminds me a lot of Therefore, Repent; a weird graphic novel that (supposedly) deals with many of the same concepts. It can get a little too smug at times, but it was really interesting, especially to a guy that loves exploring Christian theology in unorthodox ways. From the pulp of Supernatural to the debates of True Detective, I love it all.

Even if Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is disappointing, I'll still get something out of it.
