Indie horror title Home will be released on the PS4 and Vita later this year, creator and developer Benjamin Rivers has revealed. In Rivers words, Home‘s “simple controls and heavy reliance on rich sound and atmosphere make it a great choice for a console system”.
The game was originally released on the PC and on IOS, and could probably be more accurately defined as an interactive narrative adventure – indeed, there has been continued debate over whether the title is a game at all. Rivers himself has said “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.”
The game’s fairly hermetic story has also provoked a broad and varied selection of interpretations, something Rivers is looking forward to experiencing once more: “the most exciting thing about seeing the game arrive on PS4 and 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.
