It's also on sale on their official site at the same price. I believe more/all of the money goes directly to the developer that way than through Steam.

Also the game got an update on Steam today and added a free Commentary Mode for the game as well.

Just saw that. I grabbed it. Good thing I didn't buy it like I was going to when it came out because I would've been really pissed with this going on sale so soon!

Not on PSN you must be thinking about another game, only Personal Computer, Macintosh, and Penguin OS

Penguin OS

Sounds like a cereal.
Anyway, definitely go pick this up if you're into explore 'em ups.

And Chris Remo's soundtrack for the game is also available for $7 (or more if you want). It's a great soundtrack. It gets me emotional just listening to it. The link is on the Gone Home site front page.

I was lucky enough to have 20 bucks in steam trading card money, so I picked it up when it first came out.

Buying it from their site gives you a Steam key. So go straight through them. :D

Meh, I'll buy it during the Steam Holiday Sale, where presumably all of my purchases will count towards sweet, sweet event-based trading cards. Plus it'll probably be cheaper then. Even knowing that this game is super well written and voice acted and whatever, I still think it's super overpriced for what it has to offer.

I was confused by why you tagged me in the OP, but I quickly realized you did it because I asked about whether I should play it or not recently. That's really cool that you thought to remind me, so thank you!! I actually just got it before I saw this thread, but thanks anyway!!

Games at the $20 price point on Steam seem to rarely ever get discounted more than 75% unless the devs are really backed into a corner by how bad the game sold initially, so I feel like the absolute lowest you might get it for is like $5.

Or a Humble Bundle. Actually, has that happened yet? I swear it did.

Sweet, I'll be picking this up today. Will this ever come down to $5 during Holiday Sales and so forth? I'm not going to quibble over a fiver.

It was totally worth $20. This is a steal. They also added some pretty entertaining in-game commentary recently.

An absolute steal. Definitely made my top ten this year.

And I paid full price for it.

One of my all time favorite games. Yes, I called it a game, and you can't do a thing about it!

It was a steal when I paid 10 dollars for it, and this is an even better deal. I highly recommend playing it on a dark rainy night with headphones on like I did. A fantastic experience

This should've been its starting price. Too bad for them that most people forgot about the hype on its release.

I'm skeptical about this whole thing, but I'll bite. Don't care about the game vs. not game argument, just hope it's not too obvious or pretentious.

Well, you certainly have more agency than some other games:

I can concur that this game is well worth the asking price. Even at full price, and now... fucking most definitely buy this game.

Holy crap. I saw this on sale and I thought to myself why not. I was going in thinking this was going to be some kind of horror game, but boy was I pleasantly surprised. Once I started playing it I couldn't stop.

What a beautiful and touching story. I don't remember ever playing a game that had a story that felt so, dare I day it: real. Definitely one of my top 3 games from this year.

I bought it when it was on sale for $10. I wish I had waited, since it was still overpriced then.

If you haven't played it by now you might as well just wait for the inevitable Humble Bundle.

Just picked it up. Doing some holiday last minute GOTY gaming! I'm gonna blast through it tonight unless somebody wants to make a case that I should play it in shorter bursts.

Samesies! And even if it was cheaper, it would be a marginal difference. 5 bucks is kind of my folding point on games that I'm interested in.

@trilogy: maybe not short bursts, i suggest just don't go so damn fast! don't rush just experience it. look around every nook and cranny, try to break it or just goof around. that usually helps draw out shorter games for me. its like you know it won't last long so savor it and try to take away as much as you can before its over.

Picked this up from the Humble store earlier - isn't the game only two hours long or so? I'm totally playing this tonight.
