Sales - the final countdown & Shoot Out!

Hi all!



The final days (or almost hours) of our Weeklong Deal are almost over, so read our disclaimer from the begin of the week

http://steamcommunity.com/games/460940/announcements/detail/254856417464923398

and then, if you can accept those terms, jump in and start playing Father's Island!

We are in the meantime working on both the patches for Father's Island and Into the Dark (which is also on sale now)....

http://store.steampowered.com/app/266050/

...., and of course on "Into the Ice", where we hope to present the official Steam Store Page soon!

Additionally, we have done some R & D on incorporating PBR (or better PBR-inspired) materials into GameGuru. While it is still a long way to go and we won't trade in performance or loading time for that, the first results are visually quite pleasing.

Dont't get us wrong, we were quite happy with a visual appearance like that



we can do better on the details now:




A detail level like that will be the guideline for Into the Ice, but perhaps it will also find it's way into one of the next versions of Father's Island.


Meanwhile, our fellow Austrian Indies from Unique Games need your support for something totally different (hehe, no competition for Homegrown Stuff), and it would be totally awesome if you can cast your YES vote to them:

THank you very much and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

It's SALES time - but beware!

As you might have seen already - Father's Island is on sale!

But please do not rush in, do not buy blindly.


While we have improved the game heavily over the last 9 months, it still suffers from long loading times. Water still kills you (ok, that's explained pretty well throughout the game) and flying the dragon is still a pain in the A.

So, before you purchase Father's Island and later regret it (in worst case, after the refund timeout), please take you time and read the description, the discussion board, watch some video.

Yes, want customers, yes, we need money to pay our bills, but we rather have few happy customers than a horde of dissapointed ones.

You can also play the free demo! This was done with a now ancient codebase. It runs much slower, looks much uglier and behaves much much more buggier than the game does now. So, if you find the demo "ok", there is a good chance you find Father's Island great.

Oh yes, and don't buy the game if you get offended easily.

Otherwise - enjoy the show!

All the best,

Homegrown Games

PS: ETA next patch - Mid of April

About This Game

Father´s Island is a mystical, surreal visual novel with a B-Movie twist in a 3D open world, where the player has to solve the mystery of his own wrongful conviction 5 years earlier. An abandoned island with buildings, structures and relics, wildlife and strange machinery has to be explored while being haunted by memories from the past.

ATTENTION: Please do not purchase unless your PC meets the minimum specs. Even then you will experience quite long loading time before the journey begins. We will keep optimising the game, but right now the minimum specs are required to play smooth on "low" GFX settings and can result in 5+ minutes of loading time at the start.



  • Huge, open, living world to explore
  • Dozens of buildings and structures
  • Dynamic soundtrack reacting to players mood and surroundings
  • 4 different endings
  • Hours of video-, audio, on-screen storytelling

Intro, in the player character´s words:

"I am John Richards, and I am innocent. I spent the last years in the Providence state prison for a crime I hadn´t committed. Armed robbery and assault, Christmas eve 2009, a convenience store right outside the town where I used to live. Hell, I was a high school teacher then, and yeah, I didn´t earn much, but robbery? No . I spent the night 80 miles away in my cabin, my private retreat for holidays, working on exams and exercises for my pupils. Alone. A pretty bad Alibi, especially as they had me on tape. Not only my face, clearly visible, hard to mistake for another ones, they had also my DNA all over the place..."


5 years later, recently released from prison, John Richards starts to explore an island along the coast-side of New England. A priest had disclosed its location to him, pointing out that there he will find all the answers he is looking for.

Trying to get hold of whoever had framed him, the player starts his journey to an island where almost everything is familiar, yet there is nothing he can remember exactly. Two square miles of beautiful landscape, strange architecture, abandoned buildings and structures, mountains, forests and even small lakes are waiting to be examined - while fighting the demons of the past coming as nasty flashbacks and buried memories.

Are you really sure you are alone out here?
