Yggdrazil Group, developer of first-person horror Home Sweet Home, has announced that it will be porting the game to Nintendo Switch "soon".
The studio mentions that it will be working with Mastiff to bring the game to the platform, following its original release on Steam last September. User reviews there are 'very positive', making us hopeful that this could be a nice little addition to the Switch's library. You can check out the game's official synopsis and feature list below.
Tim’s life has drastically changed since his wife disappeared mysteriously. In one night, after suffering from the sorrow for a long time, he woke up in an unknown place instead of his house. While trying to escape from this place, he was hunted by a rancorous female spirit. Can he survive? Is this place actually his house? Does it relate to the disappearance of his wife? Some dark sinister secret is hidden inside this house, and it won’t be a place of happiness as it used to be any longer.
• Thai Horror - Environment is based on horror Thai setting and the narrative is inspired by Thai myths.
• Challenging Gameplay – Focus on stealth gameplay which requires player’s skill to overcome.
• Diversity of Gameplay – Puzzles and investigations are integrated into the game for variety of gameplay.
Here are a handful of screenshots to check out, too!
No release date has been set for the Switch version just yet; it appears that Yggdrazil Group and Mastiff only recently got together to discuss plans for the port so it could still be a while until release.
In the meantime, though, why not let us know your early impressions of the game in the comments below.
This looks really... Generic. Please prove me wrong devs. We need more AAA horror games on the go!
more horror on switch! yes please!
So far my favorite horror game on Switch is Layers of Fear. That was a surprise gem I took a chance on and am really happy I did.
Look nice for now. Reviews will tell. I need a goosebump for Halloween.
Nope Sweet Nope!
(I don't do horror games lol!)
this is so 2013
This is supposed to be really good going by Steam reviews.Having lived in Thailand for the past 9 years I feel it's only right I should support their fledging gaming industry.
Thai's are quite big on horror. There are a fair few daily/weekly soaps where ghosts just seem to randomly appear. I've never quite understood it myself.
@JHDK Yep Layers of Fear is brilliant. Once I started it I couldn't get enough of it. The DLC story is quite good too. I'm not one to be easily scared but man that game gave me the heebie-jeebies. I'm hoping their follow up game Observer, which is supposed to be even better will be announced in time.
Environments are suitably creepy-looking, but the gameplay I've seen makes it look like one of those cheap Steam horror games pretty much made for Let's Players to scream at.
Steam reviewers think pretty much everything that's not broken is good, so I'll be waiting on reviews.
I'd prefer a new Fatal Frame, but, barring that, I'd take a decent indie clone of that concept, like DreadOut.
@Ralizah Agreed, I usually don't think too much of Steam reviews, it seems like almost everything gets a good rating unless it is flat out broken
If you boys and girls like Asian inspired horror, you should try DETENTION. It’s a bit short but it feels like a bit like Silent Hill and the story is excellent.
@OorWullie @JHDK Yes, loved the bit of Layers of Fear I played on XB1, and have it on my Switch wishlist. That game has the perfect blend of tension and atmosphere to balance me between stressed and still wanting to press forward.
@GrailUK True story; A few weeks ago I grabbed ZombieU for a few bucks. Got home and tried it, only about an hour in (just after tutorial) that I decided it was far too stressful for me to continue.
What’s the name of that Thai myth where you go to bed and then wake up in a copy of where you were but you are hunted by a monster or something? And the only way out is to go back to sleep. Does anyone know what I’m talking about?
@SimplyCinnamon53 Alice in Wonderland?
@HobbitGamer I'm the same. Complete coward lol!
@Octane Haha! No, maybe I’m crazy but I could of swore I read something about this.
@MagnaRoader Not really a AAA horror game. But it is a $16 game.
You can download the PC Demo on Steam and take it for a spin.
I’ll buy it! One more to add to my collection
There's got to be something more we can do with horror at this point than have us walk down dark hallways.
@Agramonte I didn't mean to call this a AAA title, but the switch does need some. Would it kill Capcom to port more Resident Evils?
@MagnaRoader No, I hear you. Just mean, not filling that spot - but still enjoyable for what it is. If you wanted to check it out. it was a bit of a side note.
Yeah 100% with you, it does.
PHEW! Thankfully, Switch is a home system, so you can only play it at home (as fanboys continually said, since this isn't the 3DS's successor, despite Pokemon moving to it), because this would be scary if this were playable on a handheld system!!
Looks awesome. Loving all the horror games on Switch!
Happy for the horror fans. Me? Massive wuss, can’t play ‘em despite being a full grown adult.
@OorWullie I remember from my adolescence that Thais have some pretty good, or at least gory horror movies
Ooh, looks cool. Kind of reminds me of Detention a little bit with taking inspiration from myths and focusing on the narrative like that.
@0muros reviews isn't everything either. remember they gave here Atelier game on Switch a 6. That games deserves a higher score for what it delivers. If you like what you see go for it
@SimplyCinnamon53 sounds like you’re describing SOMA?
yer doing it wrong
@HobbitGamer @GrailUK might be in the minority here but I loved ZombiU frustrating at times but worth a run through. I think there was only ever one jump scare that really got me and I am by no means a hard man when it comes to horror games.
Darn, at first I thought Sweet Home was being ported to the Switch
I first thought it'd be a remake of "Sweet Home" on the Famicom
Looks interesting enough to keep on my radar though.
@Orwellianson Detention was indeed very enjoyable!
@iluvwaynesworld So did I, at the same time
@bluemage1989 oh don’t get me wrong, I thought it’s great! It’s just too well done for me haha. Feels like I’m in 28 Days Later
I haven't heard that name since the PS2 era.
Does any know what happened to this?? Soon?? It's 2021 already...
when the hell is this game coming to Nintendo Switch?
@CarlosM87 no update on this at all
@anoyonmus nothing. And i even wrote the devs on Twitter. Niente. Nada. Zilche. I gave in and bought it on PS4, actually. But, it's a game that would be rather good in portable format.
@CarlosM87 just inform us if they say anything
@anoyonmus I will, but honestly I wouldn't keep my hopes up. The company seems to have gone radio silent, actually. Much like Hollow Knight: Silksong, that, at this moment, I'm starting to believe it doesn't even exist. 🤣
@CarlosM87 almost 2 years later. Still nothing
