At first you'd think Home was a retro-looking point and click adventure, but that would be giving it too much credit. It's really one of those trendy, arty indy games that supposed to be a deep meditation on interactive storytelling. In other words it's a bore. Like Dear Esther or even Photopia (although Photopia is actually good). The pixel graphics are neat and it seems to be a nod to Atari's Haunted House in the way it treats stairways and the use of atmospheric sound. It's just not fun to play. Thankfully it takes less than a half hour to finish, so good riddance.
