The scariest VR horror game of E3 is coming Home Sweet Home on October 9th
The scariest VR game at E3 2018 was Home Sweet Home. While the game was previously released on Steam last September, Mastiff is handling the PS4, PSVR, and X1 publishing. The game launches on October 9. A physical edition of Home Sweet Home, which includes the base game and PS®VR mode, will be released exclusively to GameStop stores across North America on October 16.
Interesting about Home Sweet Home is that it comes from a company who specializes primarily in high-end video production for commercials and advertising. One of the most nightmarish moments of the game, a woman throwing up bloody nails into a sink, haunted me for several days.
A first-person horror adventure game based on Thai myths and beliefs. The core gameplay focuses on storytelling and stealth to avoid perilous spirits hunting you including your dead wife who has a box cutter and will slit her throat in front of you to say "Hi honey, I'm home".
The level of detail in the game is very impressive for a PSVR title and it does have the ascetic of a thai horror film.
“We are very excited to be working with Mastiff in order to bring the dark, Thai-inspired world of Home Sweet Home to consoles,” shares Saroot Tubloy, Chief Operating Officer of Yggdrazil Group. “The game's real-world lore and mythology is sure to captivate and intrigue players, while its brooding narrative keeps them clinging to the edge of their seat.”
The first in a series of terrifying first-person horror games, Home Sweet Home throws players into a dark and twisted labyrinth, where a miasma of fear fills the air, dread bleeds through cracks in the ceiling and seeps down through broken floorboards, and anxiety grows stronger with every step.
After a long night filled with mourning and sorrow over the recent disappearance of his wife, Tim awakens to find himself in a strange, dilapidated building instead of the comfort of his own home. Naturally confused, he desperately begins to search for a way out while attempting to solve questions that could lead to answers regarding his wife's disappearance. At the same time, he’ll find himself being hunted by malevolent spirits.
There is a dark and sinister secret casting a shadow over this interconnected labyrinth...and without question, it's no longer the happy home that it once was.
