technically theres only 1 female item . i cant believe HW would do this . the MOTD screen is very misleading . it suggest that the female version in bundle is porche. as far as the game goes its not bad but its the rewards ( & cursing women with a male avatar ) that are the problem . i think HW are the best dev in home so its nerve wrecking that they would do what 90% of the devs do , shower males with content . the apartment is nothing special either. HW can something be done about selling females a male avatar for females ? all in all my honest opinion is that the ball was dropped bigtime 

@stardustchampion actually et was responsible for the videogame crash & AVGN reviewed it to show how aweful it was . the game sux

Gotta admit full size companions are awesome. Only a matter of time before full size is standard.

There are a few legitimate gripes about rewards.

 

But the game is fun, Nice to see a different  pace of game in Home for a change.

Being one of the tight fisted people in Home, its a good game and worth the $9.99.

I respect Heavy Water as an active and involved development team but their products do not really appeal to me.  Peeps, garish tattoos, games with comic-book graphics and cartoon pin-ups are just not my thing.

 

This game has an original twist to it and should find an audience on Home.  The bundle seems to be a fair enough deal for interested users.  However, I will not be spending $10 for another apartment, rewards that will go straight to storage and avatar outfits that I'll never use.  I couldn't even make it through the tutorial.  The controls were frustrating and it kind of gave me a headache.

 

The public space is a bit cramped but looks pretty cool.  The Heavy Water folks seem to be fans of metal stairwells.

"Home is not a social network. It's an online virtual world with a focus on third party games."

 

I disagree with your assessment that Home is not a social network. Perhaps it isn't for you , but that doesn't make it true for the thousands of people who use it that way. Games in Home are a fun distraction that are used in many ways by its denizens. Some are reward hunters,  some like their names on leader boards. There are a lot of people who don't even play the games in Home at all, or rarely because they come in to decorate their spaces and talk to friends, not game.

That being said I think that this game is a good addition to Homes gaming repertoire. It is very different and like all games that are released to Home it wil find its niche of players. It is all right to not be one of those if you so choose, that is your personal opinion, but I think the game has merit in many ways. It is a unique gaming experience unlike any other in Home, and I think I will give it some time to grow on the community here as it is also very different from anything before it.

This game is more difficult than the other casual games in Home have been up to this point. It has more of a disk based feel to it, and the comic book style has merits of its own. I think that they have come up with a nice new experience that will take some getting used to, and the fact it is harder than most will make it all the more worth beating it once we get the hang of the play. Also I like the fact they have built in a way to stop people from topping leader boards by camping in an easy space and shooting things. If you stay too long in one place, it stops scoring for you.

There was a lot of work and thought put into this game, and it will always have people who either like it or don't for their own reasons.

I don't feel like the price is too over the top, and yes it will costs a bit to play, but that is not to be unexpected in Home, the developers have families to feed just like we do. Tycoon is costly as well as are many other games like the fossil hunting, which is by far the most costly I have heard of, but people still play them because they are enjoying the fun, or rewards or fighting for leaderboard status. Aurora has games that take forever to finish yet people do it, the casino is expensive too. I think we have to take into consideration the fact that there are people behind these experiences who have lives to live and pay for like the rest of us.

If you don't like the game, that is fine and your decision. If you do the same is true. I haven't played past the hour of free play quite yet, and though I agree it is a difficult game in many ways compared to others in Home, I will be working at it til I get it right. I think challenges make life more interesting.

Did anyone else immediately think of the Gigglepies from Fairly Odd Parents when reading the storyline of this game? Also, I agree that 10 dollars is too much, if they can make The Walking Dead for 5 an episode there is no way this should cost more than 5.
