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.

“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.”

A játékról

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.

I was expecting a game like Lone Survivor, because Lone Survivor was very good and very short. But I just got a bunch of pointless walking around with a few uninspired puzzles and flavor text. I guess the game has multiple endings? I got one ending after an hour and didn't care to slog through again for a different one.

This game is short, unscary and cost me £6.
I was so dissatisfied with it, i had to convince one of my friends it was amazing so that they bought it, and i didn't feel like i was the only idiot wasting £6.

A short and simple game, should take around an hour to finish a play through.

Lots of people are reviewing it badly for being short, but sometimes all you want is a quick little game to play and this is great for those times. Nothing too major but good enough.

I have to say that this an excellent game, not only for horror fans like myself, but also for anyone else who enjoys an amazing and tragic story. Excellent sound and amazing detail, definitely play with headphones and no lights like the game recommends.

I couldn\'t get in to this game much. I really did try to get in to this game. I shut the lights and possible distractions off and everything. It has some spooky atmosphere, but I was more conditioned by this game\'s disposition as a horror title rather than the atmosphere of the game itself. The light space you\'re confined to in a TV static-like darkness is pretty effective, and the ceiling\'s lack of visibility until you shine the flashlight upwards is an effective tool for creating paranoia, but you are never once actually required to look up at the ceiling from my experience. The story changes on your playthrough because of vague conditions and I have yet to figure it out. It is overall decent, but you really do need to play it several times over to fully understand what it\'s going for. Though, I got this game on sale for literally less than a dollar so I can not complain much I guess. This is a cautious recommendation.

Short but entertaining game.

I don´t need every game to bore me for 80+ hours.

If you want a short game (1.5 hours) with uneasy atmosphere and minimal graphics, this is a good candidate. If you are expecting anything else, this will probably not deliver. Although I applaud the game for being what it is, it lacked quite a few things to make it recommendable.

In brief, the game was not engaging enough. The horror atmosphere was the main drive for the game, but by the end, after seeing similar generic sets especially near the end, the effect had worn off. The "puzzles" can barely be considered puzzles, no cognitive thought required. And the story, I could not get myself to care about the main character or his lover or anyone else to care how they had died or if they were still alive. There really is no satisfying ending to answer all the questions I had by the end (what was the shadowy figure in the forrest?), which is what I believe the devs intended to let our own imagination be the horror, but it just feels ineffective and lazy, especially if the ending is decided by a few promts at the very end, many of which I found myself not caring how I replied to.

I don't regret my time spent in this game especially for the price I paid (mere pennies during a sale), but I won't try pushing others to spend money and time into this game.

If I were to recommend a game of similar style, I would suggest The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Same investigative theme shrouded in mystery, but it is georgous to look at walking between clues, it contains engaging story, and most importantly, a satisfying ending.

I got this when I had spare money, yet before Steam Refunds were a thing. I played this game for 15 minutes, then just left. It was horrid, no plot, no story. I forced myself to play all of it the next month, and "finished" it, giving a short paragraph of what happened. Then nothing. The worst thing is, it's still listed as horror. The only "Horror" aspects are cages filled with bones, which play no part in the story whatsoever. All around, a bad game.

And, now they've added achievements to try and get you to play for more than the 20 minutes it takes to finish the game in its entirety.

Home is an intensely unsatisfying experience, because at the end it feels like the developer didn't actually have any idea what the plot was about himself.

The gameplay mostly consists of walking around and finding vague, uninteresting clues to hint towards what's actually going on, as well as some very simple, very easily solvable puzzles. The focal point of the game comes at the end, wherein you're brought to a place where the clues of the game start adding up, forming the hints that start showing the big picture of what has happened.

The problem with this is that the game's ending clues are determined by your seemingly arbitrary actions and choices. Even worse, the changes that are possible barely even change what the game's purported ending is supposed to be. To top it off, at the end, you're actually directed to an online forum where you're encouraged to share your ending and what you think it meant.

This makes it feel like the game doesn't actually have any story at all. Nothing is resolved, nothing is explained, the game literally just gives you a few hints and goes "hey you figure out the plot, because I sure as hell am not." It doesn't feel smart or creative at all, it just feels lazy, like the dev wanted to make a game that has lots of interesting symbolism but isn't nearly creative enough to write anything interesting. If I'm just supposed to use my head and think up something myself, I see no reason to pay some pretentious dev money to do so.

Starts out promising and goes downhill rather fast. Also there's no saving so you got to complete it in one sitting or you got to restart from the start and that gets tedious from the get go (game is about an hour to an hour and a half long). You basically get at the end of the game and decide what you want to believe happened which is just BS and leaves you feeling like its all a waste of time.

Check it out if you already own it but with far better adventure games with an actual coherent plot on steam, don't bother picking this one up.

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.

Home is a uniquely told story where your simple decisions affect how the plot of the game unfolds...or it seems. We start with our nameless protagonist in an unknown house in the middle of the night with no memories how or why he got there. The story gets more interesting when he finds a dead body in the next room.

The most engaging aspects of this game are how the story is told and the atmosphere. First, the story is never complete. As you make your way from the house to your home you can find clues about the events that have happened and piece together the murders. How much you find and how much you progress in being 'Sherlock' is completely up to the player. This ambiguity is the most sparkling and the most trembling part of the game at the same time. The conclusion of the game will vary based on what you discovered and what choices you have made throughout the game. This undoubtedly will leave many frustrated and with a lot of questions after finishing the game. In this case a replay of the game is needed, but unfortunately it might not bring the resolutions players want to see.

While the graphics and the music (there is no music) aren't the strongest parts of the game, the atmosphere is. It is highly recommended to play this game in one sitting, at night, with headphones on. The crackling wood, loud thunders, footsteps with the visuals will pull the player in searching for answers. You will never be frightened, but you will always be wondering: "what's in this next room?"

Home is a very special meta-game, where its uniqueness derive from not what's happening on screen, but what is in the mind of the player. The story of the game might not get complete after several playthrough, because the events of the game have already happened, the murders too. It is not really important what happened, the important thing is how much you know about it and the ultimate goal is to know everything of course.

Rating: 72/100; Replay Value: 4/5; To Beat: 1-1.5 hours; Played on: -

Welcome home, from the bottom of my heart... - Dave Dobbyn, Welcome Home

THE GOOD
Home is a unique type of horror game. Focusing more on psychological horror and the fear of the unknown rather than explicit violence and disturbing visuals, Home draws you in with an mysterious if not interesting story which puts you in a house that isn't yours. The ambiguity is executed well but Home shoots itself in the foot by having Home TOO ambiguous and leaves you in the dark for no apparent reason. It also doesn't really give you any indication wheather or not walking through a specific door or interacting with a certain object will lead to you ending your time inside one of many houses, but this could be seen as a positive as it has multiple endings for multiple playthroughs.

THE GREAT
The atmosphere is so thick you could shoot at it and the bullet would get stuck. An eriee feeling persists for the entire game (Which previously mentioned isn't very long) and all throughout all playthroughs. Some of the events are unerving and give of a foreboding feeling as if someone, or something, is about to chase you through this pixelated nightmare. A climatic ending would've been satifying but would've also broken the flow, at least it would've for my playthrough.

THE UGLY
This game is ambiguous to the point of being frustrating. Some of the options which lead to the end of the current house you are in aren't obvious which mean you have to replay the game up to that point just so that you can figure out what is happening. And about the ending, although it's not too climatic some closure would've been nice at least. Instead I was left with several murders unsolved, a bloodied knife, a recently fired gun, a bad leg and absolutely no clue of what had happened or how to figure out what had happened unless I replayed it again, and again, and again....
Similar to Dear Esther, there's very little gameplay and an eriee feel to it all and some may hesitate to call this a game at all.

THE VERDICT
If it were any more expensive than $3 then I wouldn't recommend it. There are other games like Lone Survivor which have a lot more to it and may seem more worth your money and time. But for my money and time, Home is an experience which is not terrible but still a way better game than Amy ever was.

SIMILAR GAMES
-Lone Survivor, in more ways than one
-Dear Esther. What is it with indie games and an atmosphere so thick you can wrap yourself in it?

SPOILER ALERT

Here is how I would best describe this game:

You wander around a (mostly) abondoned landscape. The audio and visuals are both very compelling in the 8-bit realm that this game occupies. Your character doesn't remember what has happened, only that everyone is dead, and his leg hurts. You are searching for your wife, and immediately, you are led to believe that the character you control killed her in a drunken stupor. [I am very engaged]

You arive at your house having been led to believe that your digital wife cheated on you, and you killed her for it. You are then asked to descibe what happened, based on what you have seen in the game. It concludes with a story of what "must have happened" based on your previous responses and actions.... except that the resulting storyline is contradictory and rediculous. Did you find your wifes body? No? Oh, well then she was just a figure of your imagination. Did a former coworker return to town for something? Yes? Well then clearly he was the one sleeping with your wife.

Wait... was she made up, or was she real and triffling? Ugh.

Best part of this game is it takes about 70 minutes start to finish and cost me $3. Save yourself the time and money.

Disappointing.
