Rogue Games, a publisher of killer video games, and Game Grumps, the team behind Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator, unveil Homebody, a narrative-driven, psychological horror game evocative of classic slasher films of the 1980s.
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. Homebody is coming to Steam, Epic Game Store and consoles later this year.
“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.”
