Everybody's Gone to the Rapture: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode: 212

For this week we cover a kind of new game genre that some gamers have sneeringly dubbed "walking simulators."  Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is a PS4 exclusive from the creators of Dear Esther, where the player has to uncover why everyone has recently disappeared through a series of audio logs and...you guessed it...walking!  We get in to some of the controversy surrounding these types of games and Eric offers up his tips for the best way to experience Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.
