About This Game

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.

Shortly after playing a wonderful little title called Lone Survivor, I stumbled upon Home. It looked similarly charming, and both games obviously draw inspiration from Silent Hill 2.

So, why is it that Lone Survivor plays out like a haunting love letter to Silent Hill while Home feels uninspired? I think it is greatly because Lone Survivor smartly crafted its own story while taking on the mechanics and atmosphere of Silent Hill. Home, on the other hand, shoplifts nearly all of its parts from elsewhere but tweaks nothing in any interesting ways.

In short, Home sets itself up for failure due to a seeming lack of confidence in its own story. What starts out intriguing, then swiftly becomes derivative and predictable.

The pitch of this game was admirable. The execution gives a plotline that's a congealed mess of contradictory events, plot holes, inconsistancies and general nonsense. The price is about right, but to quote one of the philosophers of our age "Ain nobody got TIME fo' dat!"

Do Not Use A Controller! You are forced to use the analog stick which doesn't work properly and you unknowingly skip essenential dialogue. I didn't realize this was happening until late in the game (I missed nearly all of the most plot-essential document in the ending).

It's an interesting idea with some potential, but then you reach the ending where you basically just choose what happens nullifying your exploration earlier in the game. Imagine if LOTR ends just as Frodo approaches Mount Doom and then simply asks you what you want to happen. Disappointing.

I like this game.
It's short but it builds up a nice horror-like atmosphere.
Additionally, you can play it several times because you can do things differently every run.
You just have to know that "Home" is like a story that you go through and not a real game.

Nevertheless, for the price and my small expectations this game is totally alright.

The real horror would be if this weren't a parody/prank/troll game. Please tell me it isn't so!

To sum it up; nothing happens. The entire game. Nothing. I could understand the notion of 'interactive sotrytelling', if it were actually a story. But stories need to have things like plot, themes, characters, conflict and resolution. This has nothing.

You awake in a strange place and attempt to make your way home. Along the way you make some grisly discoveries, some of which are optional, and the game seems to be building quite an interesting little intrigue. But then in the climax and conclusion, not only is nothing revealed, but it becomes clear there is no possible conclusion to be reached.

The first time through, I chocked it up as a failure; thinking this must be a kind of puzzle game, where you must take the proper course of actions to experience all that you should, and discover the truth by the end. There is even a small teaser at the end, seemingly intended to be interpreted this way. However, with subsequent playthroughs and some research online, the truth is revealed; this isn't an experiment in narrative. It's an experiment in not having a narrative.
