I never knew that the apocalypse could be so soothing.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, which launches on PlayStation 4 tomorrow, might just be the most relaxing take on the end of the world yet. It thrusts you into a mysterious town devoid of people, but in their place there are no zombies or radioactive monsters or other terrors. There’s nothing but memories. Rapture may look and control like so many other first-person games, but it’s different in that there is no action whatsoever. Instead, you simply walk around, trying to figure out what exactly happened. It may not sound like much, but it’s absolutely engrossing.
