Gone Home is back as a Counter-Strike map

If you thought that 2013’s powerful and intimate Gone Home needed just a little something else, like, say, headshots, you’re not alone. Now the touching, environmental narrative game’s suburban house has been reproduced as a map for Valve’s competitive first-person shooter, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Steam user Nipper turned the house into a setting for up to 32 players to hunt down randomly-placed hostages and splatter each other’s brains all over the memory-laden walls.

“Your family is mysteriously missing again,” reads the map’s description. “But you can figure that out later. Right now you have more pressing issues to attend to, like the fact that your house is full of terrorists and some dude has been taken hostage. Rescue him by taking him to the garage where you can make a swift getaway on that old bike thats been sitting there for twenty years.”

The map is available to download for free from the Steam Workshop. We thought Gone Home was one of the best games in years, and a refreshing reprieve from the usual violence that marks top releases, but to each their own.
