The Long Way Home is a short and emotional narrative adventure that tells the story of a lifetime of love through a handful of photos.
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, The Long Way Home imparts its touching narrative by giving you the pieces of a story and asking you to put them together. You start the game sat at a train station, with items around you that you can pick up and examine by pressing ‘E’. The items you find, particularly the photos, will allow you to piece together the heartfelt narrative. Trains will come by, but there’s no need to jump on the first one. It’s not a game to rush through – take your time and savour every last breath in The Long Way Home’s story.
Note: Spoilers Ahead! It’s a wonderful little game. The beautiful low poly visuals and ambient audio create a warm atmosphere and the narrative is very touching. When the end comes you’re not sad – you’re happy to have lived such a full life and you’re happy to be going home. Highly recommended.
