To go along with today’s launch of Tacoma, the game’s developer and publisher Fullbright released a short new launch trailer as well. The trailer, which is about forty seconds and length, mainly gives us a quick overview of the ship — suitably named “Tacoma” — that the game takes place in.
If you’re unfamiliar with Tacoma, here is a quick description of the game’s story to provide you with a bit more insight:
The Venturis Corporation wants their AI back. That’s where you come in. Tacoma is a narrative adventure set aboard a high-tech space station in the year 2088. As you go about your mission, you’ll explore every detail of how the station’s crew lived and worked, finding the clues that add up to a gripping story of trust, fear, and resolve in the face of disaster.
For those who didn’t know — or maybe didn’t remember — Tacoma is the follow up to Fulbright’s critically acclaimed Gone Home which released in 2013. Tacoma was originally revealed at The Game Awards in 2014 via a short trailer and was later scheduled to release in 2016. After a handful of delays however, it was eventually pushed into 2017 where it later received an official release day of, well, today.
You can find today’s launch trailer at the bottom of the page if you’re interested in getting more of an idea of the world and tone of Tacoma. If that trailer convinces you to purchase it, then you can pick up Tacoma right for the cost of $19.99 on Xbox One, PC, Mac, or Linux.
