Surprisingly, yes! Game Grumps announced this week over their social channels that they’re developing an all-new game that’s being published by Rouge Co. Homebody features designs from @JRGdrawing on Twitter, and seems to be being made entirely in house by the Game Grumps team and especially @JoryGriffis.
Homebody is an upcoming Survival horror title 8n which a group of college friends have met up at a remote rental house to watch an upcoming meteor shower. Old emotional wounds are re-opened and the protagonist, Emily, is left alone… but this being a horror game, that’s just where it starts. The power goes off in the old house, and in the cover of darkness, a mysterious killer picks the group of friends off one-by-one.
You must evade the killer, solve the puzzles scattered throughout the house, and eventually (maybe) reconnect with your old friends. Escape may seem impossible at first; ‘but with each attempt to put the pieces together, the bloodstained picture becomes more and more clear.’ This is a narrative-based survival horror with a story inspired by 80s slashers and gameplay inspired by classic survival horror. It features a responsive AI system and dialogue choices that affect the ending of the game. You must unlock secrets and piece together the mystery of this house using your journal.
