Stealth Horror Game ‘Homebody’ Releases June 1 for PC, Consoles [Trailer]

Almost a year after it was initially announced, Game Grumps and publisher Rogue Games’ slasher-inspired horror title Homebody will arrive on June 1 for for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Included with the announcement is a new teaser trailer.

Described as “a nostalgic survival horror puzzle game”, Homebody takes place in an eerie, foreboding atmosphere featuring a looping narrative that drives the story and gameplay.

The story centres on Emily and her college buddies, who have gathered at a remote rental house to watch the Perseid meteor shower. They also take the opportunity to try and rekindle the bonds that they once had, but lingering feelings and social anxieties make things difficult. Making things even more difficult is when the power at the rental house gets cut, and a mysterious killer begins to pick the friends off one by one.

Along with evading the killer, Emily will have to solve puzzles and reconnect with her friends. Death is an inevitability, but each attempt will have Emily waking up in the foyer, leaving you to try again to escape. Learn more about Emily’s relationships with choice-driven dialogue. Stealthily explore the house, moving quietly and hiding in closets to evade the responsive killer’s AI. You can also make use of an in-game journal to track the clues and puzzle solutions.
