Kickstart This: Home Free

By: Derek Yu

On: October 14th, 2015

In Kevin Cancienne’s Home Free, you play a lost dog trying to find its way home in the big city. Each city is procedurally-generated, not each time you play, but once for your entire game. Although it’s unclear whether you can really win (by finding home?), lose (by starving?), or restart your game, or what happens when you do, I think this is a pretty cool and bold way to make each player’s game feel personalized.

I’m also impressed by the quality and variety of the dog animations in the game, even in this early pre-alpha stage. Hopefully it’s as fun as it looks to run, jump, and socialize with other canines when the game releases in a year or so.

    This game looks amazing in a lost bizarre Dreamcast game from your childhood kinda way

    Can you hump things?

    You can do whatever you want, but you’re an animal. Better than doing whatever you want, but you’re a criminal? Seems worse to me.

    Why add the intro where the owner never returns? Adds a sadness to the gameplay for me. I would rather just be a stray dog running ’round, humping and shitting as I please.

    So, you’d prefer a mod to Goat Simulator?

    Separation anxiety gives me constipation, so I suppose it is the only solution.
