Hello Everyone welcome to the 2016 Horror Halloween Bash event and this events opener and for this opener we are showcasing one of our pages: The Bottom Line. The Bottom Line is a series of quick bits on a game breaking down the Pro’s, Con’s, and ultimately the Bottom Line about the game. Some entries are more comedic than others but ultimately the bottom line is always the truth at least from our point of view. Today’s example is that of the Mystery horror game Home.
-The Bottom Line-
Indie: Indies often explore gaming and story ideas that aren’t going to be approached by larger game developers.
Choose your own ending; there are three main ways to end this game. However there are a multitude of ways in explaining what happened. The game ends in such a way that any way you can put it is a correct way of ending.
Mystery couched in horror: This game is more mystery than horror so if you’re not a super horror fan but do like horror games that have a mystery element that’s explored you may want to stay/get.
Atmospheric and great use of sound to create a scary game.
This game uses pixel graphics which dull the scare factor so if you’re like B.T. This is a horror game you can handle!
The game is rather short lending to multiple playthroughs with various restrictions or focuses.
Indie: due to the nature of independent the games polish is often not up to the levels of A or AAA gaming; in Home there is at least one furniture item that is used many times that has a random single pixel far away from the object in question.
Choose your own ending: Because of the way this game is designed there isn’t a single true ending which may bother some gamers. It also may have been a point that the developer couldn’t decide on an ending or worse couldn’t finish the story.
Mystery couched in horror: This game is more mystery than horror so if you’re a super horror fan but don’t like horror games that have a mystery element that’s explored you may want to stay away.
This game uses pixel graphics and as such it takes away from the scare of the game.
The Bottom Line: Buy, Play, and support this indie game. This game isn’t very long but considering you can play this game different ways and there are hundreds of take-aways in story
