Horror indie game Home porting to PS4 and Vita this year

Home, the retro-styled horror game from independent developer Benjamin Rivers, is headed to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2014, the developer announced today on the PlayStation Blog.

Home first launched for PC in 2012 and arrived on iOS last year. It will make its PlayStation debut with the additional content included in the previous versions.

"Home received several updates after its original launch to add content and extra features, and everything that's in the game is making the trek to PlayStation," Rivers wrote. "Will you find anything new in this version of Home? Folks who have played the game before know that you can never be sure what you'll discover the next time you start it up; I'll be back on the blog to discuss specifics as we tinker around a bit more."

Home is available now for $2.99 in the iOS App Store and on Steam for Mac and Windows PC. For more on the game, which is designed to be played in one sitting, be sure to read Polygon's review of the PC original, which called Home "More of an experiment in player-controlled narrative than a traditional game." You can learn more about his development process for Home in a postmortem he gave not long after the game's 2012 release.

Earlier this month, Rivers announced his new game, a psychological romance called Alone With You.
