Home: a unique horror adventure - (by Benjamin Rivers)



Quote:
We are working our butts off to bring Home to other devices and new players this year. We'll announce details as we can be more specific, but we can't wait until you can play one of Computer and Videogames’ “20 Essential PC Games of 2012” wherever you want—especially if that's in a deep, dark, spooky place.

We're hoping to release Home for Mac, iOS and possibly Android; if you're interested in playing on any of these platforms, sign up to the right and let us know!

Hi folks! I'm the developer of Home; just wanted to hop in here and say thanks for thinking about the game. If you have any questions about the game, by all means, let me know!

Cool, thanks! I will still have to do testing on a variety of devices to see how this puppy holds up.

In case folks didn't know, Home was created using Game Maker; right now I'm completing the port to Game Maker Studio, which is what is allowing me to create iOS versions. Should be a fun adventure filled with equal parts excitement and swearing. :-)

Is the release date close or do we have to wait a few months? I would love this game on my iPhone!

I would say it's still a ways off. Sorry I can't be more specific; I'm trying not to disappoint anyone while I figure things out. My hope would be spring; fingers crossed!

Awesome! I'm looking forward to play it!

Btw, is this game different from the steam version, or is it the exactly the same?

It will have everything the Steam version has. However, there is some extra content coming for all releases that the iOS version has inspired me to do. So iOS players will get a more complete package on day one than initial Steam players did.

And, of course, lovely touch controls! I have an initial alpha running on an Android phone and it's pretty nice to just sit back with headphones and play the game with touch.
