Is Gone Home worth getting for $10? Its 50% off this week on Steam.

No story spoilers please.

Thanks gang!!

Well, I personally felt it was a short but enthralling experience. It's more of an investigative game or like a point and click adventure game. It did give you a good sense of atmosphere that the developers were definitely trying to accomplish. Would you pay 10$ for a novel at a used book store? If so, then check out Gone Home; I definitely recommend it for the story.

^ I'd rather buy a novel than the game.

I'm not paying $10 for it. I say wait until it's at least 75% off.

I played through it last night. Interesting game but it only took me like 2 hours to complete, not sure how they thought 20 dollars was a fair price. I bet they would have made way more money starting at a 10 dollar price point.

Unless you are a huge adventure fan I can't imagine buying one of these games at or near full price. I've literally got hundreds of unplayed adventure games via $1 indie bundles.
