    Default Waking Up to the Scene of a Murder - Let's Play: Home [Complete]



    Hello Everyone!

    So, as I continue to use Let's Plays as a way to regulate myself into a video game habit, my next offering is 'Home'. It's a short little game, a little over an hour, so this will only be in four parts. It has some nice old-school graphics and some really vivid sound effects that really set a tense atmosphere. In the end it's much more of a story game than anything else, with the decisions you make while playing effecting what has happened to the character before he woke up.

    A few technical notes here:
    -Facecam was bad decision here...
    -I neglected to take care of where the mouse cursor was. Sorry, hopefully it's not too terrible.
    -For some reason, some sound effects of the game (particularly doors opening) were not recorded.

    We wake up in a house with a dead body, our leg injured, and have no idea what's going on. We should get out of here before the cops come. Then we remember we're The Batman!

    Bruce (Batman) finds that the basement connects to the sewers, and escapes the horrible manor, only to be lost in a forest. Will we ever get Home?

    You really shouldn't spoiler what's going to happen in each episode's description. Takes the fun out of it.

    Hmmm, there is a truth that my summaries contain spoilers. Well, there is an easy solution to that :P

    In fairness though, good point, I should pay more attention to writing my summaries to be enticing but not give away everything. Thanks.

    Having safely avoided bear, we navigate our way through our old workplace to get back to the city and our Home, finding more disturbing evidence of...something.

    I continue to be curious... what does it all mean? It kinda seems like the game is trying to frame you for murder with these "did i do X?" decisions.

    In the final chapter the evidence comes together, and as we find ourselves a possible murderer, we choose to rewrite reality and our sanity to prevent it from being so in a very confusing conclusion.


    It's definately an interesting game. It seems much more interested in giving you pieces to create your own story rather than supplying you with the story yourself based on your decisions.

    ...huh. Confusing indeed. Not in the typical "it's cryptic and we're not gonna explain anything!" way, but more... coherent. Very "lego", as it were.

    Intriguing.

    (I'd be interested in you doing another run with a different route.)

    Thanks for watching. It is a very interesting way to create your own story and ending to the game.

    As there has been some interest in it, when I get a chance I'll do a bonus video, just highlighting different choices made in game, any additional scenes that pop up because of them, and then most of the exploration of Bruce's house and the ending that occurs. And opening that safe.

    What a weird ending. Apparently your choices gave 'you are crazy' ending? And I agree, I'll appreciate if you do another ending. At least just to see if it's all that crazy.

    I think the reason I got the "you are crazy" ending was because, after all the evidence I found and the things I did (picking up my id and evidence that I was there and what not) I was heading towards some kind of murderer ending. Then, when I choose to reject that reality, well, isn't rejecting reality a definition of being crazy? :P
