This week we're breaking down one of the more emotional games of 2015: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture!

We're also discussing our interpretations of the meaning of the game, talking about our favorite examples of the trope Nothing is Scarier, and drinking frosty pints of an old Manchester favorite.
