Great news! We just uploaded a patch which enables full support for Oculus Touch, and also adjusts the Vive Motion Controller controls a bit, making navigation a much smoother experience.

You now have the option to play Homebound using Motion Controllers, Oculus Touch and Gamepad - next up Mouse and Keyboard!

We really hope you'll enjoy this update, and as usual - thank you for your feedback and support!



Kind regards,

Homebound - Patch 1.0.6.0

Hello everyone,

We continue to improve Homebound based on the feedback we've been receiving since release and this latest patch is a BIG one!

Some of the most noticable changes are improvements to the gripping system as well as interactable objects now being highlighted when in proximity. We've also created new on-screen effects for better clarity and added a new surprise in the crash sequence <3. You can read the full changelist below:



Update 1.0.6.0

  • Player should no longer be able to collide with held objects
  • Objects should much less frequently shoot off in high speed when flying into them
  • Bug causing player to drop item in one hand when releasing item held in another fixed
  • Added two more floppy disks, which should make finding 6 easier
  • Bug causing held items to stop simulating physics should now be fixed
  • More batteries for radio added
  • Batteries should no longer collide with player body, making grabbing easier
  • Collision model for floppy disks is now larger, making both grabbing and inserting into drive easier
  • Chips can no longer be triggered an unlimited amount of times
  • Interactable objects are now outlined/highlighted when in proximity
  • Fullscreen effect indicating oxygen depletion added
  • MEL's scanning cone should intersect with player and geometry much less noticably
  • Helmet HUD moved up slightly, improving readability
  • Escape pod no longer gets an objective marker - improving readability
  • Additional voiceover added
  • Added a little surprise at the end <3

Once again, thank you all for your feedback and input!

Best regards,
