August 25

BJtH 1 year anniversary!

Hello, dear fans!
It's now exactly one year since Big Journey to Home was released, which was on the 20th August of 2015. The development first stated on 5th August of the long forgotten year 2010. During all these years, both us and you have done a lot. Thanks for everyone for supporting us and buying the game!
Those who haven't gotten the game yet are welcome to join the celebration with a 66% discount until August 30th! Hurry up! There's a surprise waiting for you after the sale as well.
The game hasn't received any updates recently. Unfortunately, due to the lack of engine updates, we're still unable to fix the OS X version bugs. We will likely release our last update soon, which will disable the mandatory linking of BJtH-Online and Steam accounts.
Thank you again for your support.
Yours, Silver Sword!

About This Game

Welcome to the world of adventures!

 
You play as Jake, a simple guy who accidently got into trouble. What will happen to him, how he will behave, will he get home or not, all that depends on you. You will encounter a variety of creatures along your way, from roaches to huge scorpions, lizards and even small hamsters! Apart from living beings, you will see a variety of complex mechanisms. To overcome snow, forests, deserts and underground areas, you will require a good weapon. Though you already have that - a well-sharpened blade that will slice (almost) every monster.
The game requires you to plan every step, so that monsters won't have you for dinner. However, if you stand still, the monsters won't touch you. The "Hardcore" mode won't let you sleep, though, it will require your full attention.
If a friend of yours keeps bothering you, you can play a separate story about Jake and his brother together. You can walk through the same far-away places and see the same monsters, however, they will behave differently. If your friend gets lost, you will be able to show him where to go using the built-in chat and marker.
The game has an achievement system - try to unlock them all! If you want to stay in this unusual world, you can extend the fun with usermade levels that people just like you can build. Thanks to the convenient level download system, you won't be leaving the game for a long time.
 

A brief history of development

 
The game was developed for the duration of five years, gradually improving. Different people contributed to the game and the development team changed over time. Some people worked on level design, some others did art. As of right now, the game has only one developer left: Vyacheslav "Silver Sword" Mironov. I have started this game and I have led it to its release.
