Home creator taking on exploration, escape, and love in Alone With You

Alone With You is an upcoming game from the man behind the indie side-scrolling psychological horror Home, and he's looking to bring a unique approach to another genre of storytelling. This time, it's romance.

While a teaser trailer doesn't reveal much beyond a triforce of exploration, escape, and love, Home creator Benjamin Rivers told us about his plans for Alone With You back at last year's GDC. A year's a long time a game development and Rivers' plans may be different now, but here's what he had to say when we spoke to him last.

"It's not a grinding game or anything like that, but I want to take a lot of what you do in those relationship games like Persona and offload some of that to people," Rivers said in March 2013.

"I want to basically take a game that makes you feel as cool as you do in Persona, as far as relationships, [being] as connected," he continued, "but see if I can do it without making it so video game-y, but still make it where people maybe even have a more powerful reaction because they buy in."

There's no word yet on platforms or release dates, but Rivers plans to spill more on Alone With You at this year's GDC, which takes place later this month.
