I really liked this game. Like seriously, a whole lot. I would really love if there would be more choices, or more things to happen, or whatever, but I guess thats just because I desperately want to play this game more as I really love it, but theres nothing more for me to explore. Which is okay. I really hope you will make more games in the future! :)
Homebound is a game about making choices and managing your mental well-being while in lockdown, inspired by Reigns from Nerial. The choices you make will craft your story, while affecting your happiness, energy and productivity. Can you keep all three from hitting zero? The best way to play is on Android (download link below)! Homebound was created for The Neighbourhood Jam 2020.
Swipe cards left and right to make choices. Pay attention to your happiness, energy and productivity levels, and don't let them drop too low! Each playthrough will take around 5-10 minutes, but we recommend multiple playthroughs to experience all of the different paths within the game.

This is really lovely! perfectly illustrates how i have been feeling all quarantine:)
A perfect distillation of lockdown! I loved discovering all the little subplots, so much attention to detail :)
This is so sweet and relatable, the UI design is lovely too!
It has a lovely message underneath it...but i got the feeling there were secrets i'd need to look into further to find :)
Such a wonderful experience!
Lovely game - I really enjoyed this!
Ótimo jogo! É de extrema importância saber balacear as coisas durante o isolamento/quarentena e o jogo mostra exatamente isso. Muito bom mesmo.

Great game! It is extremely important to know how to balance things during isolation/quarantine and the game shows just that. Really good.
