Home Review - PC (MasonicGamer.com)

MasonicGamer.com - Home describes itself as a ‘unique horror adventure’, and it certainly is unique. Developed and published by Benjamin Rivers, it places you in the blood-stained shoes of a man who has woken up in a dark and unfamiliar house with no memory of how he got there. While that might not sound like a particularly original premise for a horror game, the way that Home gradually reveals its chilling and ambiguous story is totally unlike anything else I have played.

Anyone who has ever experienced the disorientation and fear that comes with waking up in a dark and unfamiliar room will immediately empathise with our nameless protagonist’s situation. Things quickly go from bad to worse as he discovers that he has injured his leg and there is a dead body right outside the door. As he explores the house and the areas beyond, his thoughts and feelings are expressed through short, text-based monologues told in the past tense. These are well written and effectively capture his growing terror and confusion. (Home, PC) 8/10
