Lights out. Bunk beds turned into a complex fortress of blankets and pillows. Flash lights. A thunderstorm soundscape cassette tape playing. And the suspense and intrigue of whatever game my brothers and I had invented that day. Recently, I discovered something that brought back the rush of all of this childhood adventure: Home.
Home is a PC game by Benjamin Rivers that will cost you $2.00 for an hour or two of heart-skips-a-beat nostalgia. The super pixelated graphics really just add to its charm. After all, it’s the kind of game I would have been playing in my childhood days. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure style murder mystery. Here’s the trailer:
Now, I have to say, I wasn’t thrilled with the ending of the game…mostly because I wanted a lot more. I suppose that you can only get so much for $2.00, however. Anyway, I would love to see what you guys think. You can download the game here. If you decide to give it a try, I highly recommend playing it the way they tell you to. Headphones in. Lights out.
