If you find yourself in need of some more PSVR horror this Halloween after consuming the likes of Transference and The Persistence, then you’ll be happy to hear there’s another slice of quality scares coming your way just before the most wonderful time of the year.
The first-person Thai horror hit Home Sweet Home is set to crawl over from PC to PSVR, PS4, and Xbox One from October 6 in digital storefronts, with a physical version available at GameStop exclusively from October 16. A Nintendo Switch Port is due at a later date.
In Home, Sweet Home, you play as Tim, a man who awakens in a dilapidated building to find himself in a world of terror inspired by Thai mythology. Along the way, he will also discover the secrets behind his wife’s disappearance and how, naturally, it’s connected tot he horrible things going on.
Publisher Mastiff and developer Yggdrazil Game Group have put together a few handy bullet points on what to expect from this popular horror title on consoles.
● Gripping Thai Horror – A dark narrative inspired by Thai lore, myths, and beliefs that will captivate players while keeping their palms sweating and pulses pounding with fear
● Sharpen Wits, Not Blades – Without weapons to provide defense against the evil spirits, players must keep their wits sharp remain sharp at all times in order to survive
● Nicely Tied Together – The use of stealth and investigative skills offers gameplay variety and a chance for players to breathe, but not for long….
● Face Your Fears – Experience a new level of first-person fear and terror with PS®VR compatibility
Seems like another one to add to the Halloween Horror Game Playlist for me. Home, Sweet Home borrows from several popular first-person horror titles (Amnesia, PT, Layers of Fear) and adds a nice level of polish to the package. It’s not the most original example of the genre, but it is highly entertaining horror fare.
