Home Free Finding Its Way to PS4

In this golden era of gaming you can be pretty much anything you want; whether it be a goat, a piece of bread or a future super star barber. Gone Home continues this trend by putting you in the body of a dog that is lost in a city that it generated just for you.

Home Free

I have been keeping an eye on Home Free over the past few weeks over at the Kickstarter page as it had smashed its target within the first 5 days and is now on was on its way to its various stretch goals with 16 days to go.  Needless to say, this project has gained a lot of love and attention.  As of yesterday though, it was announced that Gone Home will be making its way to the PS4 in 2016.

  • Be a dog in an unexplored city!
  • Play as any of over a dozen breeds (plus many more color and marking variations). Maybe even more, depending on stretch goals and rewards!
  • Explore a dense, procedurally-generated city unique to your game. Every street, alleyway, building, nook and cranny was generated just for your game. No one has been here before, so you better start marking your territory.
  • Player-driven narrative. Shape the story of one dog’s survival through your choices and actions. Experience the the world from the perspective a creature who will never quite understand why that world acts the way it does.
  • Wrestle, wriggle, and pounce. Home Free features a full range of canine moves to master, whether you’re playing with friendly dogs in a local park or escaping the aggressions of territorial dogs in a dark alley.
  • Learn the unique rhythms of your city. Which neighborhood has the tastiest garbage just after sunset? What park empties at mid-day so you and your dog friends can have a fun romp when no one’s around?
  • Decide how to survive. Will you be a bandit, stealing food from unsuspecting humans when you can? A performer, trying to earn treats and sympathy from dog-friendly citizens? Or a scavenger, sticking to the margins and following your nose?
  • Dog it up with your friends in real life! Home Free comes bundled with my local multiplayer dog wrasslin’ game, Dog Park, included at all backer levels!

Have simulator games gone too far now or will you be diving into the life of a lost dog?  Let me know in the comments below.
