Home Review: Is this horror indie game the next Amnesia? Or does it fall victim to it’s own craftiness?

Home has a great story, in fact the story changes depending on which objects you pick up, pathways you take, and which assumptions you make throughout the game. The game play itself is minimal, focusing solely on narrative and is much more like Dear Esther then Resident Evil. Aesthetically the game resembles a old Commodore 64 game with sound effects to match, and due to this it is very difficult to feel frightened or be in suspense. The game is terribly short and can be completed in less then a hour. Granted you could replay it a second time to see how different actions effect the story but unfortunately the story remains relatively the same throughout. Home is more interactive fiction then game, and is different enough to least check out. I would only recommend purchasing it when it goes on sale.
