Home indie horror game headed to iOS and Mac in 2013

New, 3 comments

Home, indie developer Benjamin Rivers' retro-styled horror game released earlier this year for PC, is headed to iOS, Mac and possibly Android in 2013, according to an announcement from the developer.

Rivers originally envisioned Home as an iPad game, but he didn't "have the chops to make it happen." Its PC version has sold over 100,000 copies since its June 2012 release. Due to the game's popularity and thanks to "a behind-the-scenes upgrade," Rivers is preparing the game for release on iOS and Mac.

Home is on sale for $1.49 from its regular $2.99 on Steam, a 50 percent discount available until Jan. 5. You can hop over to the game's website to suggest other platforms, like Android which he's also considering.

Be sure to check out out Polygon's review, which praised the game's "sophisticated, horrifying narrative experiment." You can also find out more about Home's development in a video retrospective from earlier this year.
