The Venturis Corporation wants their AI back. That’s where you come in.
Tacoma is a narrative adventure from the creators of Gone Home, set aboard a high-tech space station in the year 2088. As you go about your mission, you’ll explore every detail of how the station’s crew lived and worked, finding the clues that add up to a gripping story of trust, fear, and resolve in the face of disaster.
At the heart of Tacoma is the facility’s digital surveillance system, which has captured 3D recordings of pivotal moments in the crew’s life on the station. As you explore, echoes of these captured moments surround you. You’ll use your ability to rewind, fast-forward, and move through the physical space of these complex, interwoven scenes to examine events from every angle, reconstructing the multi-layered narrative as you explore.
Tacoma carries on Gone Home's tradition of detailed, immersive, and powerful storytelling, while pulling players deeper into the narrative than ever before.

Most Helpful Reviews
Beautiful, engaging and well-acted - Entirely too short for the Price - This is a beautiful game, the production design is amazing. However, it is entirely too short. It’s well acted, fascinating and engaging and the ending is clever. I wasn’t looking for an “Alien; Isolation” type of experience, but I was expecting a more-in-depth gameplay experience where you need to do more things than just observe. The near-future universe the game creates is one I’d love to spend more time in. The load times were notably long, and I’m running the game on a 4K 21” IMac (2017) with a maxed out processor and good specs. It’s currently overpriced given the lack of length of the story. I hope there are more stories with a richer and deeper single player campaign to be told in this world that has been created.
