I just finished Gone Home in one go. I became so absorbed in it, that I had to see its conclusion. However, I think I might have finished it a little too soon, as I missed about 5 journal entries and by the end, I feel I might have missed something. Did Lanny kill herself? Did you she run away? If so, why didn't she let her girlfriend know?
Gone Home Ending Explanation SPOILERS!!!
You should really go back and find those journal entries, don't rush it.
They ended up running away together.
Yeah, I got that part. But now it's all making sense, as I just remembered you are playing as the sister. She is coming home to see they've all left. I can't believe it took me a few minutes to process it, but it's all making more sense now. Like how the house is a reck and so on...
Never finished the game, slenderman is going to jump out any minute, too scared
That's one of the brilliant things about the game. It doesn't give you that "oh, i'm a video game so a monster or ghost is going to pop out at any moment accompanied by screeching violins & lightning flashes" moment, but instead gives you that "I'm home alone, in an unfamiliar house, I'm finding out all this private shit about my sister and my parents, I'm worried they did something stupid, and WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT NOISE" feeling. That eerie, half-creeped out feeling you get at home when the thought of vampires or werewolves or ghosts or slendermen or any number of creepy possibilities pops into your head, and you can't help but KNOW that they are just around that corner.
The game just makes you feel that all the time, and I loved it.
I was real glad to see they went in the " happily running away together route" and not the "double suicide path".
Who says they didn't both commit suicide after they ran away? :o
yea I was fully thinking it would go down that route aye...
