v1.5.2 should fix Windows launch issues

So sorry to everyone who experienced this nasty bug!

Installing the 1.5.2 update on Windows should solve the issue where the game crashed on launch.

Please note that there is an issue with Windows 10 throwing up an error when you quit the game. Nothing is lost, and everything quits fine -- we're trying to track down why this error appears, and will get another update out ASAP.

Home v1.5.1 brings Steam Achievements (finally!)

I know it's been a (much too) long time coming, but Home for Steam finally gets achievements today.

These are available on both PC and Mac, and should give you some fun incentive to explore some alternate routes throughout the game.

As well, v1.5.1 delivers:

- improved windowed mode support on PC
- working windowed mode for Windows 10
- a few GUI tweaks here and there

Thanks for continuing to play the game. :-)

“A sophisticated, horrifying narrative experiment.”
8/10 – The Verge

“[Home] serves as a great reminder of what older games once taught us.”
Joystiq

“A creative developer demonstrates how much atmospheric force can be put into one pixel.”

Относно тази игра

Home is a unique horror adventure set in a beautifully-realized pixel world. It’s a murder mystery with a twist—because you decide what ultimately happens.

Awakened by an oncoming storm, you open your eyes to discover yourself in a strange, dark room—tucked away in a house that’s not yours.

As you play the game, it changes—subtly, almost imperceptibly—to reflect your perspective. It's a horror game unlike any other, and as you'll discover, its truths are entirely subjective.

It's a bit hard for me to form a certain opinion on Home, while certainly being a very interesting adventure, there's flaws that I can't seem to ignore.

You wake up in someplace, and all you find is a flashlight. From here it's up to you to find out what happened. This is the first problem, I surely like games that based themselves in mystery and even those that leave some of the story open to interpretation, but Home relies HEAVILY on that certain aspect. While some people may like that, it sort of irritates me that I cannot find the true explanation of this game. There's 2 ways the story can go, it all depends on what you decide in the basement part of the game, but you have the same 3 endings if you choose one or another because in the end, they're both tragic as hell.

The graphical setting of this game, while not being my favorite, it fits Home very well. What I liked about Home is that is relies a lot in describing what's happening with accurate words like when you're reading a book, and that really helps to set the seriously dark atmosphere of the game. And oh boy, what an atmosphere it is! The sounds are great overall (whose may scare if you if you're not expecting them!) and the music is almost non-existant but in the last sections it is creepy as hell, which fits the whole situation.

Don't play Home if you're expecting the typical jump scares that seem to be what everyone cares about these days. Home's horror is entirely psychological, with a loud sound here and there but that's it. It's more about exploration than horror really, I wasn't playing this for the horror, but to reveal the truth in the whole plot. This is what led me to be a bit disappointed towards the end, because while being a very good story and all, it doesn't have a real ending. You're the one who makes up the ending, and I'm terrible at that to be honest. Now there is something that I think it MAY reveal which of the "ways" the game goes for the endings is the real one, based on the letter that is inside the safe located in the character's house. Again, it's really hard to talk about this without any spoilers so... moving on...

Yes, I was going I bit off-topic with the whole non-conclusive story, Home offers a great hour and a half of mystery and lots of blood and death. It may be worth the price of 2 euro, I'd say yes if you're gonna hunt the achievements (they help you discover the ways the story may go, which I missed on my very first playthrough since there were no 'guidelines').

Although being very good, it's lacking some things, maybe a bit more story development, and not being so vague about it. Again I do say, it's one of those 'games', there's not much to it than walking around, inspecting objects and saying Yes / No to certain things, some people hate that, but I like it when a game is interesting enough, in whice Home did not fail me at all.

Final Rating: 7/10

This game was ... interesting. The premise of this game is that you decide, via your actions, the plot of the story. However, the main issue with idea is that nothing get's resolved. Regardless of your choices, you will still be left with a story with multiple interpretations, where none of them giving a solid answer to the main question of what actually happened. So, while it is an interesting concept, the whole affair just leaves you there scratching your head about what you were doing for the past hour as it dumps a large amount of exposition that relates to your actions during the game.

With a solid atmosphere, sound design and art style that had me on edge at times I can only give this a tentative recommendation. If you happen to have a spare hour and want to see what you can make of this game, then give it a go. Otherwise, you can safely pass on this game and miss nothing.

When I played Home for the first time, I was intrigued by this little game where you have no memory of the hours that preceded your waking up and where you're trying to recontitue the story. In the end, depending on what you uncovered, your character recalled all your path. Between several bodies, an apparent serial killer lurking around and strolls through sewers, cave, forest or the plant where you worked, Home was made to experience several stories in an atmosphere of horror.

Indeed, the goal isn't really to scare the player (though some sounds are unexpected) but to let him imagine the worst and to wait for something or someone appearing suddenly. It's kinda psychological: will you look under rags and decide if it's your wife or not? Do you want to see the reality or not?

Home is mainly going from a room to another to collect things (or not if you don't want to include some parts in the story). You can also jump down or find another way around: in that case, you will advance at the same speed than with a leg that hurts. There are some occasional puzzles: find a switch to open a door, turn valves or restablish some power for example.

The game is made to look like a retro one, which is something that I like because it's giving also a particular ambiance and less scary than 3D stuff. The soundtrack is composed of only ambient sounds: winds, cave echoes, doors, etc... It is sufficient.

Why did I play it again so as I've played it in 2014? When I was looking at my library, I kinda thought that I didn't play it. I saw achievements not unlocked with 79 minutes of playing and looked at the news. They were added the 6th november 2015. Well, it's a nice discovering, prompting me to reinstall the game and to play it again.... with the controller too. The commands are smooth with it....

In the end, Home gained a new interest with achievements, even if I reviewed it earlier, it would have still been a thumb up. If you like games like that (not many scares, ambiance leading you to ask if your character is sane, retro graphics), go for it. It's really a little gem.

Home is a difficult game to evaluate and I'm struggling to decide if I would recommend it or not. For what it's worth, it has a really pleasing visual style. I didn't come across any bugs while playing - the whole thing functioned pretty smoothly. It was atmospheric enough, sound design was okay, controls were intuitive despite minimal instruction. I really wanted to like this game and I was excited to play it.

But - and this is a big but - the game was predictable and unchallenging to the point of being boring. The (potential?) twist was apparent early on, and the level of control over the outcome that was promised honestly amounted to little more than some contrived yes or no questions at the very end of the game, and a resulting pretty vague text summary. I wouldn't have minded this so much if the gameplay was interesting but it really wasn't much more than just walking from room to room. The puzzles were hardly puzzles at all, no critical thinking (or even just plain old trial and error) required. I spent the entire time feeling a little bit like I was playing a tutorial, just waiting for the game to start.

Ultimately, it's an interesting idea, with great visual design, but the story needed more time to incubate and mature. I just didn't care about any of the characters. I didn't feel engaged at all; I didn't feel like the story was even really trying to engage me. Though I appreciate that this game wasn't aiming to be an amazing platformer or adventure game or anything, I still feel that better gameplay elements were needed to justify using this platform to deliver this story. I don't particularly understand why it had to be a game as opposed to perhaps a visual novel or a short story. I don't understand why the only thing I was given to do between tiny dribs and drabs of story was slowly walking through often repetitive environments.

This game was purchased for me as a gift during a steam sale, and while I don't regret playing it, I'd hesitate to push anyone to spend money on it.

A boring and linear story-driven game where you walk a guy. Unfortunately doesn't have much of horror. While I knew the gameplay won't be great, I at least expected a decent atmosphere in the game as I love horrors, unfortunately it wasn't unsettling and the game quickly became boring. Do not waste time on it.
