Indie horror Home is coming soon to PS4, PS Vita

Acclaimed PC adventure promises dynamic storytelling and rich atmosphere

Home was a welcome surprise to horror game lovers when it launched on PC in 2012, and it delighted a whole new audience on mobile in 2013. Its simple controls and heavy reliance on rich sound and atmosphere, though, make it a great choice for a console system – so I’m happy to announce that Home is making the jump to PS4 and PS Vita this year!

Part of Home’s charm is that it’s entirely dependent on the player; it isn’t a march towards Ending A or Ending B – it’s the journey itself that is affected, as all your little choices subtly change how your character perceives the world around him. It’s a game that people love playing and then discussing afterward to compare notes and theories.

More importantly, it’s a game that’s meant to be played alone, in the darkest room (or alley, or barn, or deep, dank forest) you can find. On PS4, this means you can turn off the lights, crank that sound system and let the dread wash over you. If you’re extra brave, you can play the game on your Vita – somewhere scary, where no one will find you, and with a fat pair of headphones, of course.

Home received several updates after its original launch to add content and extra features, and everything that’s in the game is making the trek to PlayStation. Will you find anything new in this version of Home? Folks who have played the game before know that you can never be sure what you’ll discover the next time you start it up; I’ll be back on the blog to discuss specifics as we tinker around a bit more.

Home is a game that depends on the players who play it. It doesn’t just talk to you; you’re part of the conversation. So the most exciting thing about seeing the game arrive on PS4 and PS Vita is going to be reading and hearing the myriad new stories, theories and comments that players will continue to contribute to the discussion surrounding the game.

I hope you’re as excited as I am to see Home in the hands of a whole new audience; I can’t wait for you to play it!

Did you enjoy this?

More indies please. This looks really interesting! I want it now!

Why to announce a small game(which is two years old) when you can’t provide a possible release time and trailer? It should be a cross buy title and good price otherwise its not worth to wait for this game as we can play this game already in PC and mobile which everyone these days have and there is nothing new in this game for PS4 & Vita.

I’m hoping that you are going to use that speaker built in the DS4…

STOP flooding the PS4 with indie games!

When will Europe be getting Street Fighter X Tekken and Unit 13 for free like the US does? Don’t we actually pay more for our subscriptions than they do as well??

TrueSparda 17 March, 2014 @ 4:44 pm   13

@CassiusOne Both titles were released on ps plus last year.

“On PS4, this means you can turn off the lights”

Does this also mean that you will disable the light bar on the DS4?

Has the game crashed, or are they the graphics?

rofl this game is one of my worst purchases on Steam, the game is a big delusion as far as horror/adventure goes which it gets promoted as on the games site, the horror element is extinguished after 5 minutes with the game as you realize the game is basically a 2d game with small exploration and mostly about opening doors and go down ladders. It feels unfinished and is btw about 40 minutes to 1 hour long ;D. The games story is predictable as hell and theres no replay value either.

“Acclaimed PC adventure promises dynamic storytelling and rich atmosphere ” :D . 5.7 from users on metacritic i think i bought it for 1 euro on steam and that was even too much, im gonna crack up if this gets sold for more on PSN

urgh more pixel art garbage.

 

It’s great to have indie games for our PS4′s but how about some quality ones and no more pixel art unless they really are outstanding.
I’m not feeling like my PS4 purchase was worth it at this stage, I just hope the offerings get a hell of a lot better than this!

Love me some pixel art and horror :) as for the haters… Just dont buy it n quit your whining no-one is forcing anything upon you.

 
Number9dream68 18 March, 2014 @ 6:06 pm   20

Wow some of these comments are downright rude,ignore the haters,most of them equate flashy graphics with great games,moaning about indies unbelievable,journey was an indie,brilliant game,keep the indies coming,better choice of games then.

I will take a look at this.

Lone survivor was better and more atmospheric/ unnerving than the last few silent hill games put together.

 
DragonxTortoise 19 March, 2014 @ 9:26 am   22

Lazy ass pixel art game :/
