After years of studying abroad, prodigal daughter Kaitlin returns to her familial abode, or Gone Home, you could say to The House on Arbor Hill, only to find it mysteriously deserted. She feels a pit form in her stomach and sinks to its deepest depths. What tragedy befell the household she so cruelly abandoned? Who hid the bodies? And is she truly alone or is she haunted by the specter of her abusive grand uncle Oscar?
“Aha,” Jens Dietrich exclaimed. “Another clue!”
“It’s about music again, isn’t it?”, Randy Isbelle replied with weary resignation.
“Tangentially yes, my dear Randy”, Jens extemporized excitedly. “You see, when Bandcamp abbreviates the Gone Home Original Soundtrack, it spells G.H.O.S.T. – that can’t be a coincidence.” Or is it? Listen if you dare!!!
