Moving Pixels Podcast: Haunted Homes and 'Gone Home'

'Gone Home' affords players the opportunity to practice a little archaeology on a late twentieth century American home. And maybe to exorcise a few ghosts from that period as well.

The Moving Pixels blog has committed its share of virtual ink to the discussion of this summer's "It game," Gone Home. So, we figured it was time to discuss as a group our impressions of this study in environmental storytelling and exploration.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
