No Longer Home
A downloadable flat for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Bo and Ao: two recent university graduates prepare to move out of the flat they lived in together, over the past year. Both struggle to find work and meaning in post-education life. Disillusioned with their time in the UK and forced out of the country by a government who doesn’t want them there, Ao prepares to move back to Japan, leaving their friends and Bo behind. Home seems like a difficult place to hold on to, and deep under their South London flat, something grows…
No Longer Home is a semi-auto-biographical point and click game, set in a magical realist world. Wander through an intimate flat, and examine the everyday belongings of Bo and Ao. Delve into their thoughts and insights, and mould your interpretation of the characters through branching, multiple-choice dialogue. Have BBQs, play video games, and stay up late just talking in bed.
It is made by a core team of: Humble Grove (Hana Lee & Cel Davison), Adrienne Lombardo and Eli Rainsberry. As well as with contributions from Michael Berto, Derek Daley, Florian Veltman, Everest Pipkin and Jacob Gordon.
"[No Longer Home] is a reflection on those precarious few months surrounding the end of university, channeled through a point and click aesthetic in the vein of Kentucky Route Zero."
"Like memory, everything has a sheen of fiction to it. — [No Longer Home] showcases the magical in the everyday domestic drudgery."
— The Guardian
"There is something, not an unease but an otherworldliness, that perpetuates the piece-a finely illustrated work that unfolds like a diorama."
