Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is an upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive from indie developer The Chinese Room. It was originally slated for a PC release but the focus later shifted to the PlayStation 4.
There isn’t much known about Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture but the developers have kept updating about their progress via their official twitter account. They just released some new in-game screenshots which shows their focus on realism and capturing the look and feel of the particular time period for the game. You can check these screenshots below.
The game might be set in 1984, judging from an earlier tweet from the developers asking about the look of Hay Bales in 1984.
The question is this: did round hay bales get wrapped in black plastic in 1984?

The developers had revealed that they were inspired by British apocalyptic science fiction from 1960 and 1970 so this might be an accurate time period for the game.
They also talked about how the game has progressed from its initial development to its current state. Hopefully this means the release date should be also revealed soon.
Amazing looking back over the screenshots how much the game has come on. The sense of place and Englishness is really there now in a big way
