Dear Esther dev's Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is PS4 bound

All the cool kids are doing it.

Dear Esther developer thechineseroom's upcoming game, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, is heading to PS4, Sony announced today during its Gamescom press conference.

Creative lead Dan Pinchbeck detailed Everybody's Gone to the Rapture last year where he said it would take place in Shropshire an hour before the world ends, giving players roughly 60 minutes to explore before the inevitable apocalypse.

Like Dear Esther, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture will be in first-person and won't contain any combat or puzzles, but you will exert a greater influence over how the story progresses than in 'Esther'. Along the way, your actions will alter the environment, characters and their actions. Think of it like a the beginning of Majora's Mask.

In other thechineseroom news, its upcoming Amnesia sequel, A Machine for Pigs, is set for release on 10th September on PC, Mac and Linux.
