Play OverviewPlay Overview

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (2015) lands you in a fictional deserted English village in 1984. As you walk the streets of another era you discover bright human forms who re-enact events like a radio play. Through their eyes, you see a web of fear, conspiracy and humdrum disagreements, and piece together the story of the inhabitants’ disappearance.

Deep within the Shropshire countryside, the village of Yaughton stands empty. Toys lie forgotten in the playground, the wind blows quarantine leaflets around the silent churchyard. Down on Appleton’s farm, crops rustle untended, the early harvest abandoned halfway through. And someone remains behind, to try and unravel the mystery.

You immerse yourself in a rich, deep adventure as you investigate the last days of Yaughton Valley. Uncover the traces of the vanished community; discover fragments of events and memories to piece together the mystery of the apocalypse.
