'Homebody' Is A New Psychological Horror Game Coming to PC And Consoles - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 25, 2022 @ 9:16 a.m. PDT

Homebody is a narrative-driven, psychological horror game evocative of classic slasher films of the 1980s.

Homebody is a survival horror puzzle game where you catch up with old friends and try not to get murdered.

Emily and her college buddies have gathered at a remote rental house to watch the Perseid meteor shower. They try to rekindle the bonds they once had, but lingering emotional wounds and social anxieties leave Emily feeling more alone than ever. When the power suddenly goes out, it’s almost a relief. But under the cover of darkness, a mysterious killer picks them off one by one. If Emily can’t find a way out, she’ll be trapped in this nightmare forever.

Evade the killer, solve the house’s devious puzzles, and reconnect with your friends. Escaping the house may seem impossible at first, but with each attempt to put the pieces together, the bloodstained picture becomes more and more clear.

Uncover the secrets of Emily’s past and find a way out of the house by avoiding the killer, solving the puzzles, and making dialogue decisions. Impossible at first, but with each attempt to put the pieces together, the blood splattered picture becomes more and more clear.

"We're obsessed with horror games, so when coming off of Dream Daddy, it was a natural shift to explore the horror genre," said Jory Griffis, Homebody's game director at Game Grumps. "We were excited to retain the narrative and storytelling values we learned making Dream Daddy and put them to use in a game with a totally different tone and ambitious new mechanics."

“We’re huge fans of everything that Game Grumps does,” said Chris Archer, chief strategy officer at Rogue. “From their comedy to their game development, Game Grumps embodies everything we want to amplify as a publisher, and we’re thrilled to help bring Homebody to players later this year.”

Key Features:

  • Narrative driven horror game, with 80s slasher vibes.
  • Surprising and responsive enemy AI system ensures no two encounters will ever be the same
  • Dynamic hints and an in-game clue journal help players make progress
  • Robust dialogue system giving the player different choices to make that will create a unique gameplay experience every playthrough.
  • Secrets and mysteries to unlock.

Homebody is coming to PC (Steam, Epic Game Store) and consoles later this year.
