Glad I bought this
Home was a unique experience, my only two issues was that there wasn't much of a sense of challenge, and that I would have liked a more climatic ending. Glad I bought it, though -- it didn't scare me, but then again I don't scare from horror stuff easily;).

Thanks for the kind words! I know it's a bit of an oddity so I always appreciate when people give it a try.

Also have to say thanks for this game! It is something different and it gets you thinking, which I really really liked. I would wish more developers would try something different and new nowadays.
LOL. I liked it too, and I agree that clearly it's not a horror because it's missing key elements of all horrors ... 1) a party or other gathering of high schoolers, college kids, or other young adults 2) at least some couple has to be doing the nasty 3) sound effects include not only banging and loud clattering seemingly out of nowhere, but the music track itself (missing) would have to have some shreeks to high pitch whirring sounds repeated over and over. 4) There's not enough mysterious elemental forces (ie, leaves blowing around, wind knocking branches against windows), 5) horrors are actually horribly conceived comedies. ... oh wait, all these apply to movies. maybe the video game horror genre is different.

A good investment of $1.01. Would have even been a deal at the non-sale price. Was entertaining and there is decent replay value.

Impressive little game. I'm doing some research into it and it has a nice little meta game quality about it. Well worth the price.

@Krozy: Ha ha, nice one. I realize the game doesn't even include a slumber party that goes horribly wrong. :-)

There's a Playstation series called Twlight Syndrome (by the makers of Clock Tower) that's classic Japanese horror; I played some of those games way back in the 90s and they were a big inspiration. If you haven't checked those out, there are some good playthroughs on YouTube.

Anyway, thanks for posting. If there were any pleasant surprises (without spoilers), I'm all ears.

I enjoyed Home as well. It makes you think about the story and different possibilities. It's a lot like interactive fiction (IF) and I can see how it may be difficult to properly market this on Steam as it is not a "gamer's game" per se. For those who liked Home, try IF some time and be sure to check out "The Baron." Definitely a WTF kind of experience.

Having given it some thought, my biggest complaint is that it was too easy in my eyes. There are several places where you're supposed to flip switches or turn levers to do things, but in both cases it burned down to "just turn them all on". Okay, so I didn't figure out the safe, but then again I didn't really try, and it wasn't neccessary to progress the game anyhow.

I also missed a kind of sense of urgency... you had the feeling there was someone after you, but it could've been more pronounced. I have a feeling that in reality, I had all the time in the world to get stuff done.
