GONE into Home Life is a spin-off from the Gone series, hemmed by Toroko. It is a short video game released for The V² focusing around the Gone trio of Zonas, Sinicini, and Adexene in the style of Syi-Fi: Tranquility. GONE into Home Life focuses on the trio as they adapt to home life as a polyamorous couple.
Each day in the plot of GONE into Home Life counts as a level. There are a total of twelve levels in the game planned, with each centered around a different character in the relationship, alternating between the three. For example, one day might focus around Adexene, who is trying to lift Sinicini's spirits after a horrifying nightmare and helping Zonas feel more confident. Another day might revolve around Sinicini waking up early to cook breakfast for Zonas in bed and taking Adexene with her on a jog. Overall, their days are rather mundane and daily slices of their life.
These events often are rather simple minigames to complete or involve the player engaging in a text-based conversation through the eyes of their player character for the day. Should the player fail a event, they will have to deal with the consequences. Each character has their day books with a list of tasks that they would like to get done, as well as a bunch of colored calendar dates indicating whether they have had a good, bad, or so-so day.
Each level takes around 3 or so hours to complete, so the game saves after every event. The game takes place over a variety of hours, as some days players will have to work early and come home rather late. Events, while taking place over several hours, still need to be initiated by the player as they walk around their house. If they aren't doing anything, they can just hang out with their lovers or do a variety of other tasks like dressing up or doing online shopping. A full list of house activities is found under the "House Layout and Activities" section of the game. The player needs to watch their in-game time to assure things go smoothly.
Should the player ignore tasks or do them incorrectly, strain will be placed on the three's relationship. Additionally, spending too much time with one character may also place strain on the relationship. What might be a really good day for Sinicini and Adexene could be a miserable one for Zonas because Sinicini spends too much time together with Adexene. While time with the other character does not need to be exactly equal, they should know they feel loved. Adexene will usually the quickest to react if she feels like she is being left out of the relationship, with Sininici being the second quickest, and Zonas being a distant third due to his meekness.
Additionally, beginning on Day 6, there are Night sections that focus on secondary characters in the storyline. These are not as involved as the day sections and may take place at a new location or centering around a unique gameplay mechanic such as being a thief. They also serve to help flesh out some of the guests that visit the Gone Gang's house, invited or not. These can be skipped except for Night 8, as it revolves around a secondary character and serves as the conclusion to the R. Vogue arc of the game.
Shortly after completing the 12 days, the game will throw randomly generated events together while keeping with the Zonas, Sinicini, and Adexene switch for every single day.
The game is... considerably easier than Syi-Fi: Tranquility in some ways although managing two people every day while caring for yourself presents a new spin on the formula.
House Layout and Activities
The floor contains four rooms, a stairwell, and a door to the outside with a doorbell. The four rooms are a kitchen, a living room, a indoor hot tub, and a media room.
The kitchen contains food, which restocks every four days curtsy of Valerie's services. The player, in their free time, can go here and cut up a meal or eat a snack. Should the player eat too much and there's not enough food for Zonas and Sinicini, they will have to starve for the rest of the day, putting strain on the relationship as a whole until Valerie's services replenish the supply in the middle of the day afterwards.
The living room contains a tv, which the player can watch improvised tv skits created by Justin Roiland, as well as get a primer on past Gone material through newscast hosted by newscaster Jade Rodriquez. Additionally, the player can call two or one of the other characters in the house to join them in watching TV, which will increase the bond between them.
The hot tub room allows the player to relax and calm tense nerves. They can additionally call in two or one of the other characters to join them. In this relaxing enviroment, the characters can talk calmly and even get a little flirty.
The media room of the house is where the player can play demos of Virtual Console games for The V² and can ask for assistance from the other characters to act as CPUs. Doing this will strength the characters' bonds. The player can also shop online for clothes, which get delivered the next day. Additionally, any of the event minigames, when played through for the first time, become unlocked and can be replayed here.
The second floor includes a single bedroom, a single bathroom, a walk-in closet, a stairwell to downstairs, and a ladder to the attic.
In the bedroom, the player can either take a short nap or recharge as Adexene through a plug in the wall. Additionally, characters can snuggle on the bed.
The bathroom is where the player can take a shower or bath and call in other characters to help them get clean. They can also get rid of waste once their meters have gotten full.
The walk-in closet features a washer and dryer to clean clothes, but also features a expansive closet that allows the player to dress up the characters and even have other characters come in to give feedback on outfits.
In the attic, there is a single room that is completely empty that is stacked with cardboard boxes. The player can place items in here that other characters can pick up on their days.
Day 1 starts off immensely early at 2AM, as Sinicini wakes up in the middle of the night with a nightmare reliving the death of her family and Zonas and Adexene must comfort her. The three make a promise to each other to make these next two weeks the best possible for their being as they go back to sleep. At 8 AM, Zonas will get up and make some breakfast; the player can decide from food in the pantry. They must create a optimal meal for themselves; for bonus points for the others Zonas can create breakfast for Adexene and Sinicini.
Once that's done, Zonas can pretty much doze around until 10AM, which he needs to unload the laundry and fold the clothes (getting particularly flustered when he has to fold Sinicini's underwear). He then needs to put the clothes in the closet; at this point the player is allowed to dress him up if they desire. At 12 to 1 PM, Zonas needs to make lunch; he can do it for himself or make a meal for the other two. Shortly after lunch at 2 PM, Zonas needs to hug Sinicini protectively after they find a rat and assist Adexene in capturing and either killing it or releasing it back into the wild. After this, Sinicini will want to engage sexually with the both of them at 3 PM.
Zonas doesn't have a busy afternoon for the most part, allowing the player to explore the house a bit. Adexene will start grilling hamburgers on the patio at 5 PM, and Zonas can assist her by putting the hamburgers she cooks on a plate and bringing them inside. Valerie will visit the house at 6 PM, just as dinner is about to start. She won't join them for dinner, but she will ask how things are going. After dinner and the conversation with Valerie, at 8 PM, Sinicini will want to watch a movie with the two, which becomes sex on the couch pretty quickly. At 9 PM, they move into the bedroom and cuddle for two hours before finally dozing off at 11 PM.
Day 2 starts off at 8 AM, with Sinicini getting up and purring as she sees Zonas' morning wood. She then heads to make breakfast for her and the three, making sausages for Zonas, eggs and pancakes for her and Adexene. She can finish up her meal early to suck off Zonas, although she will have to make it up later with Adexene sometime after that.
Afterwards at 9 AM, Sinicini needs to get ready, getting dressed and brushing her hair in a meticulous fashion. She then has free reign of what she does until lunch at 12 PM, in which she can prepare her perfect sandwiches, which consists of cutting the corners off the bread and making the lettuce, tomatoes, and salami and ham into perfectly cut squares. She can make sandwiches for the rest of the trio as well. After that, Sinicini needs to go on a walk with the trio, making light conversation as they walk around the neighborhood. They will notice a new neighbor named Vanessa Hedges, a botanist, moving in nearby. The three can talk to her and get a idea of what she's like or not really press on with greeting her and just move back to the house.
After quickly greeting her, Sinicini can relax for a bit, getting a massage from Adexene, who will also be massaging Zonas. Sinicini will then get the idea to home school Zonas with Adexene helping her- Zonas isn't too enthusiastic about this idea but Sinicini seems set on it and orders some academic materials to school Zonas with. Adexene will be cooking pasta in the background and Sinicini can help her in doing so. At 6 PM, the three will have dinner and Sinicini has free time until 8 PM, in which she will take a shower with the three, which can get sexual if the player wants it. After the shower, they will rest on the bed and snuggle and eventually fall asleep at 11 PM.
Day 3 starts at 8 AM, with Adexene unplugging herself from the wall and kissing the sleeping Sinicini and Zonas on the cheek as she heads into the kitchen to make breakfast for her and the other two. She then helps shave Sinicini and Zonas' body hair with lasers at 9 AM. She can relax for a bit at 10, then she needs to help Sinicini set up the school room for Zonas at 11 AM. At 12 AM, Sinicini will begin to teach Zonas, leaving Adexene to her own devices.
Adexene needs to make lunch by 1 PM, although she can do it by 12 PM. She needs to then reserve dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant known as The Palmer Ace, which she can do between 2 PM or 4 PM, with a general amount of free time. At 5 PM, the fire alarm will make sounds indicating that the battery needs to be replaced. Adexene can either just shoot it to make it shut up or look for a battery. Zonas and Sicinini will get dressed for the dinner date and Adexene needs to then drive to the Palmer Ace and have dinner there.
After returning home at 8 PM, the three will generally be too exhausted to really do anything. Adexene can recharge and then meet Zonas and Sinicini in bed to cuddle for a while.
Day 4 begins with Zonas waking up and making breakfast for himself and for the two girls, with a extra boost of energy if the dinner date went well. Sinicini notes that Zonas seems extra happy this morning and giggles as she kisses his cheek. She tells Zonas that he needs to load the laundry, pulling off and passing him a pair of her panties as he blushes in embarrassment. Zonas needs to then load up laundry into the washer 9 AM, take it out of the washer and put it in the dryer at 10 AM. At 11 AM, he then needs to put it in a basket for Adexene to fold.
At 12 PM, his home schooling hour starts. Zonas needs to learn his basic multiplication tables; as a result of his troubled development as a child in the Trayd household he is afraid to fail and generally remembers everything Sinicini says in a section to the left of the screen. This can be used to guide the player in solving the math problems Sinicini throws at him. At 1 PM, Zonas and Sinicini make lunch.
After lunch, Zonas has free time until 3 PM, in which Sinicini will ask him to set up a hammock. After setting it up, the two will lie in it, which gets Sinicini a bit horny; Zonas nervous that their neighbor might see them have sex, makes them go inside where Sinicini sits on the kitchen counter and makes Zonas perform cunnilingus on her. After that, the two spoon on the couch, with Adexene joining them and sandwiching Zonas in the middle until 5 PM, in which Zonas needs to assist Adexene with cutting up fish for a sushi dinner, eating dinner at 6 PM. After this, Zonas can relax until 9 PM, in which the three will cuddle on the bed at 9 PM and go to sleep at 11.
Day 5 begins with Sinicini waking up and making some breakfast for the two and herself at 8 AM. She has to do dishes, which have been piling up since the start of the game. This will keep her busy until 10 AM, in which she is free to do whatever she wants until 11 AM, in which she needs to prepare her lesson with Zonas. Sinicini must then do a hour of home schooling at 12 PM with him, which she goes over some basic world history in the prehistoric era. Sinicini needs keep Zonas focused by asking him questions. If Zonas messes up, she needs to assure him that it's okay.
After home school, Sinicini needs to make lunch for herself and the other two at 1 PM. Exhausted, Sinicini takes a break on the couch, getting massaged and sensually touched by Adexene at 2 PM. The doorbell will go off at 3 PM, with Valerie and Syi in bikinis and holding a large purple diamond. Valerie and Syi tell the Gone gang that they will be on a beach vacation for a week and that since their home is under their rent, they want the Gone gang to look after this priceless diamond (known as the Plumber Diamond) as Valerie's tower home is constantly being robbed. The Gone gang more or less agree to hold onto it.
Sinicini finds Zonas on the computer at 4 PM playing a video game, watching him play it for about a hour. Sinicini can optionally give him a handjob as he plays. After that, she heads off to help Adexene make dinner at 5 PM, which is a lemon greased salmon meal. At 6 PM, the three have dinner, which is followed up by two hours of free time for Sinicini. As the three head to bed at 9 PM, Sinicini proposes having sex, which the three do. After sex, the three cuddle and then head to sleep, although there's something strange in the air tonight...
Instead of transitioning to the next day, the player takes control of R. Vogue, who has been tipped off to the new location of the Plumber's Diamond. At 12 AM, R. Vogue needs to break in sneakily, which can be done through a variety of means like laser cutting the window, entering through the vent behind the house, or just using the unlocked back door. After breaking in, R. Vogue heads to the closet and strips herself down to her underwear, finding the jingle of her zipper too noisy. She then finds Zonas, Sinicini, and Adexene's underwear and spends some time trying them on, eventually masturbating quietly in Sinicini's bra and Zonas' briefs.
After this, she will steal all their underwear, stuffing it in a compartment in her jetpack. She then needs to sneakily get up to the attic, being sure not to make too big of a sound for Adexene to hear. After getting up to the attic, R. Vogue enjoys a churro between her breasts and slips off her panties and bra that she's been wearing, grabbing the diamond and purring. She then masturbates to the thought of Valerie, and then slinks back to where she broke in and leaves, ascending to the sky nude and giggling.
Day 6 starts at 8 AM, with Adexene unplugging herself from the wall and kissing the sleeping Sinicini and Zonas on the cheek as she heads into the kitchen to make breakfast for her and the other two. As she prepares breakfast for the two, Sinicini and Zonas ask her where the underwear went, leading Adexene to realize that they have been robbed. Sinicini finishes cooking breakfast while Adexene investigates, only finding Churro crumbs in the attic. The three eat breakfast and mull over it, knowing that Valerie will kill them if they don't get the diamond should she realize it's missing. Adexene decides she will do more investigation to find more evidence and hopefully bring the thief to justice.
Without underwear though, Sinicini gets even more horny than usual. Sinicini calls in Adexene at 10 AM into the bedroom with Zonas and the three proceed to have a threesome that extends into three rounds of rough sex. Adexene resumes her investigation and finds fluids in the closet that she notes aren't Zonas and Sinicini's, with the chemical make up being completely different. Adexene does some research and finds that this matches the fluids found in several of the robberies at Valerie's tower, which makes Adexene draw the conclusion that it is R. Vogue. Sinicini calls in Adexene to help homeschool him while she masturbates in a closet, giving her the brief duty to help homeschool Zonas.
After the homeschooling, Adexene prepares lunch for the two and explains her findings. Adexene states that she will attempt to find or lure R. Vogue for a confrontation and to get the diamond and underwear back. She takes a break for a hour prior to this. At 3 PM, she looks for R. Vogue sightings and doesn't really find much. The three then spoon on the couch, which ends up getting Zonas horny and another threesome happens, this time with two rounds of sex. Adexene decides to cook lasgana for dinner and the three eat it up. Adexene enjoys some free time from 7 to 8 PM before the three cuddle on the bed and fall asleep.
Instead of transitioning to the next day, the player takes control of R. Vogue once again in a new location: a gas station. R. Vogue meets with two seedy individuals, a man and a woman in the bathroom and the two lock the door. The man, named Eddy, unzips his pants and R. Vogue gives him a blowjob. The player must satisfy Eddy while also distracting him enough to steal his wallet. After swallowing his cum, the woman, named Veronica, unzips her pants to reveal a bigger, girthier cock and R. Vogue sucks Veronica off as well, with the wallet stealing being slightly tougher this time. The two give R. Vogue some new information in exchange on Valerie's next shipment: a golden statue of Valerie.
After leaving the bathroom, R. Vogue needs to buy some churros. She uses the money from the stolen wallets to pay and leaves using her jetpack back to her base of operations, where she begins coming up with a plan to steal the golden statue. Unknownst to her though, once Eddy and Veronica have realized their wallets are missing do they call Valerie about the possibility that R. Vogue was tipped off to the location of the shipment. Valerie rolls her eyes and tells them to just ship it to the Trayd household for now and when she's done on vacation she can just pick it up. She then applies some sunscreen to her girlfriend Syi's back and ends the call.
Day 7 starts at 8 AM, with Zonas waking up with exposed morning wood and a horny Sinicini drawing close to it. Zonas lets her jerk and suck him off while Adexene goes to make breakfast. After Sinicini is done, Zonas heads with Sinicini to go eat breakfast. After eating breakfast, the group receives a call from Valerie explaining that they will receive another shipment since they are so trustworthy, this time being a golden statue of Valerie. The group attempts to decline knowing that it will once again make them a target for thieves but can't seem to convince Valerie otherwise (they do not tell her about the diamond's stolen status).
Frustrated, Zonas vents to Adexene who massages his back. Zonas tells Adexene that he feels things are going very badly and he doesn't want to risk losing their home and new lifestyle that he has become accustomed to. Sinicini comes in to comfort Zonas, stating that she worries about it too and that part of the reason she has been indulging in more sexual acts is, yes, because she feels hornier but it also distracts from her nervous feelings. The three embrace in a hug. Sinicini then tells Zonas that it's time for schooling and he gets ready. Sinicini teaches Zonas about world history again, this time focusing on the medieval ages. Zonas needs to take notes and not be too distracted.
After that, Zonas makes lunch and eats with the two girls. He then has free time from 2PM - 4PM. At 4PM, the doorbell rings, with Rachel Harel and Bang Crimson being at the door. The two explain that they're out of gas and that rain is about to drop hard, and they need a place to stay for the night. The group agrees to take them in for the night and Adexene makes adjusted dinner plans for their two guests. After talking with the two guests for a bit, Zonas excuses himself to help Adexene make a meal. Once supper is ready, the group eats together and talks for a bit. Zonas has some free time afterwards, although if he looks in the hallway closet at 7:30 he will find Rachel and Bang making out in secret, and the two will be horribly embarrassed to be discovered like such and swear Zonas into secrecy. At 9 PM, Sinicini will show Rachel and Bang their beds, which are just the two couches they have with a extra blanket and pillow. The group then snuggles together for a bit, trying to calm their nerves, eventually doing some light sex before falling asleep.
Instead of transitioning to the next day, the player takes control of Rachel. Rachel is having a hard time sleeping on the couch, finding it too hot to sleep in and attempts to sleep in her underwear and then in the nude but then gets too nervous about others seeing her like this so she just puts her clothes back on and attempts to try and get some sleep. As she lays on the bed with her eyes closed, she hears Bang get up and go to the bathroom. After a while, Rachel gets up and leans against the door, wondering what's taking Bang so long when she realizes that she's masturbating. Rachel accidentally falls down and hits the door, alarming Bang. Rachel attempts to get back to bed but Bang calls her out on it.
The two admit that they are having a hard time sleeping and decide to just talk until they somehow fall asleep. Rachel manages to get Bang to admit that she was masturbating to her and Rachel admits that she's afraid of building up a real relationship with anybody due to her numerous failed romances with Strafe and others. Bang admits that while she'd like something more serious with Rachel, she can understand why Rachel is a bit more distant. Rachel and Bang decide to have sex since they still can't sleep and both are somewhat horny. The two fail to get any real sleep as they get more and more aggressive, with Rachel getting Bang to grind her against the wall. After fucking each other to exhaustion, the two finally get some sleep after playing around with the thermostat and sleeping together in the nude.
Day 8 starts at 8 AM, with Sinicini waking up to a somewhat colder morning, glancing at Zonas' morning wood. After he wakes up, Sinicini rides on his cock until he cums. Sinicini then goes to make breakfast while taking some medication to kill the sperm inside of her. After breakfast, Sinicini finds Rachel and Bang on the couch naked, with Rachel getting immensely flustered and thanking the group for letting them stay. The two get dressed and leave. Adexene notes that the couch and a spot by the wall are dirty. Sinicini giggles and asks Adexene to clean it up, purring as Adexene bends over. After Adexene cleans up, Sinicini can optionally ask to eat her "delicious ass" and give her a rimjob while Zonas stumbles onto it and watches.
Afterwards, Sinicini goes to the door to get the crate that holds the golden Valerie statue. She needs to get help from Adexene and Zonas to bring it all the way up to the attic. After that, with the three all sweaty, Sinicini will want to take a shower. She can ask both Adexene and Zonas to join her and have shower sex, although this is optional and if Sinicini gave a Adexene a rimjob earlier, Adexene will need extra convincing. After the shower, Sinicini needs to get dressed and get ready to homescool Zonas. She then teaches him literary devices and the player needs to make sure Zonas' attention is on her, of which the player can use a variety of means. They then end for lunch and the group discusses the plan to make sure it doesn't get stolen. Adexene notes that while they become a huge target, it also makes them capable of catching the thief.
Sinicini has some free time afterwards until 3PM, in which a man and a woman, Eddy and Veronica, show up at the door. The two explain that they were the ones that tipped R. Vogue to the statue's previous location and that they're the reason the statue has gotten here. The group, rightfully angry with them, tells them to stay the night so that they can help catch R. Vogue. They do not even bother to give them a couch to sleep on. Sinicini helps make dinner with Adexene, making chicken salad while Eddy and Veronica go out to eat at Virusburger. Afterwards, the trio cuddles on the bed, although Adexene reminds them that one of them needs to stay awake for R. Vogue, as Adexene needs to recharge for the next couple of hours. Zonas volunteers and keeps watch as his two girlfriends fall asleep.
Instead of transitioning to the next day, the player takes control of Veronica. Veronica's night actually starts just after they leave to go get a meal at Virusburger, going back all the way to 5 PM. Eddy and Veronica order a meal and eat mostly in silence. They get a call from Valerie, asking how things are. Eddy takes up the call while Veronica gets washed up in the bathroom. After getting washed up, Eddy finishes the call and compliments Veronica on her looks. The two decide to quickly sneak into the men's room and Veronica and Eddy have sex in one of the stalls, Veronica putting her giant cock inside of his ass as she jerks him off. After finishing, the two leave. The two head back to the Gone home, but forget which house it is and end up knocking on the neighbor's door. Vanessa Hedges welcomes the two inside, and the two decide to go in even though it's the wrong house as a way to kill time.
Veronica gets comfortable in Vanessa's house and the three of them talk for a bit. Vanessa admits she's a bit of a perv, as she watches the Gone trio when she waters the plants, usually being privy to their sexual acts. She expresses a desire to have something like that, which interests Veronica a bit. Eddy goes to the bathroom to piss and Veronica talks more with Vanessa. Vanessa gives Veronica her number and the two leave to go back to the Gone household. The two end up getting locked out and have to enter through the backyard door, which takes them about a hour to figure out. They are suddenly confronted by a anxious Zonas, who drops his guard once he realizes it's them. Zonas asks the two to keep guard while he goes to sleep for a bit, much to the shrug of the two.
A hour later, Sinicini comes down to see Zonas on the couch asleep and Veronica and Eddy keeping guard. She commends Zonas on his ability to at least keep somebody on watch but is somewhat disappointed he went back to sleep. She carries him upstairs to sleep next to Adexene, and hangs out with the two until they hear suspicious noises around the house. The three investigate and find that it's just a rat before hearing someone break in from the opposite side. Veronica, Eddy, and Sinicini split off to find her. R. Vogue creeps around the house, attempting to not get caught but also to get to the attic. The player can get hints to her location by the clothes she leaves around. Should the player find R. Vogue, R. Vogue offers to suck them off again, although the player can decline or accept. If they accept, R. Vogue will suck Veronica off before being found by Sinicini, who immediately loses trust in Veronica and ends the mission on a failure.
After capturing R. Vogue, the five gather around and try to figure out how to punish her. Adexene binds her with rope, which she seems to get off to. Sinicini then tries to whip her, but she seems to enjoy it as well. Finally, Zonas attempts to just choke her, which gets her to climax, much to his embarrassment. Veronica threatens to call the police instead, which gets R. Vogue to finally give back the things she stole: the underwear, the diamond, and both Eddy and Veronica's wallets. Sinicini is a bit puzzled when she finds that some of them are dirty but regardless lets R. Vogue loose for now, on the condition she never comes back. R. Vogue commits to the promise and leaves naked on her jetpack. Veronica and Eddy say goodbye to the group and leave. Veronica makes Eddy stop at a motel for the night and the two have sex in their room before falling asleep.
Day 9 starts at 10 AM, with Adexene getting up a bit later than usual along with the rest of the Gone gang. Behind schedule, Adexene quickly whips a breakfast for her two lovers. Since the three all went to bed at 5 AM in the morning, they are all really tired and decide to make today a rest day, going back upstairs for a nap. At 2 PM, Adexene needs to answer the door for Rubelline. Rubelline talks to the three a bit, but it becomes clear that she wants to talk about the polyamorous relationship they have, stating that it's kind of rare to find people with the bond that they have. Adexene explains that it's not easy and that she had to adjust herself; as well as the others, for this to work. Rubelline hugs the three and leaves.
Adexene vacuums up the place, as all the running from last night has made the carpets less than spotless. Sinicini asks for Adexene to help a bit with the homeschooling, as she doesn't really remember fractions too well. Adexene gives both Zonas and Sininici a crash course in fractions. The three then decide to order dinner from a pizza place and eat it while they watch some Amatsuchi! out of curiosity. The three decide halfway through it's not for them. They then cuddle in bed and Sinicini wants Adexene to use a dildo on her and Zonas before they go to sleep, with Adexene dominating her two lovers for a bit with a sizable dildo. The three fall asleep after a while.
