Leaving a place behind after having lived there long enough for it to turn into a home can be disheartening. All the memories will be coming with Bo and Ao, of course, but that doesn’t make the fact that their home will soon be someone else’s, and making matters worse, visa limitations mean the two will soon be divided by more than five thousand miles, No Longer Home.
But there’s still some time before post-educational life for our two queer, non-binary protagonists, which means it’s time for you, the player, to explore and experience the remaining days in their London flat. Oh right, did I mention how something’s lurking deep underneath it?
No Longer Home was born when the developers were similarly forced apart after university, and decided to stay in touch by working on a game together.
Simply put, No Longer Home is a slice-of-life style game, in that the story portrayed here depicts everyday events, socializing with friends, staying up all night in bed talking, BBQ’ing, playing video games, all that good stuff. When you’re not busy going through their stuff, that is, trying to learn even a tiny bit about Bo and Ao in the process. The future may be uncertain, but the present is what we make of it, so be sure to check every nook and cranny.
Provided you don’t mind what you might find, at least, as emotions are bound to run high with certain topics (ie. the game’s content warnings) threatening to resurface. After all, no matter what you do, life has a way of getting complicated, at times troublesome, and the only way to come out on top is to… well, push through. With all your might. I’m sure our two protagonists are not looking forward to facing this harsh reality, so how about lending them a hand?
