Avoid all "Gone Home" forum posts until you beat the game (except this

No spoilers.

The point of this game is the discovery of the story. You go in literally knowing next to nothing about your character, the other characters, the house, etc and you learn entirely through your wandering. Finding out what the story is even about is part of the discovery, so until you have beaten the game it's a good idea to avoid any forum posts on the topic because virtually every thread I've seen on the game spoils some portion of the story. Even the most innocuous comment about what happens in the story could sour or lessen the experience, so I strongly recommend reading as little about this game as possible if you think you might be interested in playing it.
