Benjamin Rivers' 'Home' coming to Steam this Friday, only on Steam from then on

Jordan Mallory

Atmospheric pixel-art horror indie Home will be available on Steam starting this Friday, August 31, and will subsequently no longer be available directly from developer Benjamin Rivers, as was previously the case.

Home's $2.00 price tag will be bumped up to $2.99, but it will also now include a PDF manual similar to the real-life manual included with the Old-School Collector's Edition, with the possibility of this new digital version containing "something extra." Additionally, anyone who purchased the Old-School Collector's Edition will receive a free voucher for the Steam version of the game.

Players who purchased the non-Collector's Edition of Home can expect "updates and support for their purchase in parity with the Steam release (now and in the future)," according to Rivers.
