It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Game Grumps, the studio that gave us Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator in 2017. This week, the team announced its latest project. And it couldn’t be more different from his debut.
Game Grumps describes Homebody as a story-driven, psychological horror game. In designing the experience, it says it drew inspiration from 80s slasher movies, although you can also see the influence of both modern and older game classics like Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and Hideo Kojima’s PT. Part of what sells the game’s atmosphere is its slightly grainy art style and effective use of lighting.
In the trailer shared by the studio, we are introduced to the main character of Homebody, Emily. You must help Emily and her friends escape a ruthless killer by dodging the attacker, solving puzzles and making choices. Homebody sees Game Grumps reuniting with Rogue Games, the publisher it partnered with to create Dream Daddy. The two companies plan to release Homebody later this year on consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam.
