The lights are on
Part of Sony’s strategy this generation with the PlayStation 4 is bringing indie games to its console. It was revealed today on the PlayStation Blog that Home would be coming to the PS4 and PS Vita this year, continuing the trend.
Home is a horror, murder-mystery title designed by Benjamin Rivers that initially launched on PC in 2012, and later on mobile in 2013. Part of Home’s appeal is that each person has a different experience playing it, according to Rivers’ blog post
“Part of Home’s charm is that it’s entirely dependent on the player,” Rivers said. “It isn’t a march toward 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.”
Home is currently available for $2.99 through Steam on PC and Mac, as well as on iOS. The prices for the PS4 and Vita version have not been revealed yet.
