Welcome HOME, dear puppeteer.

This world has been waiting some time for your arrival. The tables
of balance has been turned, and the fate of the world trusted
into a familiar face. The guardian of zone 0 himself, The Judge. Your job is to lead him on a new journey, masterful puppeteer.

This world is wrapped in an enigma, a shroud of confusion overlapped the
once peaceful zones. The true guardian of zone 0 himself has the very marrow
of his bones rattled with the feelings of Deja Vu. The day that he would become the marionette of the new world is coming, and upon your very arrival the world will undergo otherworldly changes.

Just what is going on in this world? Why has the switch been reset? Has The Judge forgotten everything that happened? Has the world been reversed to a state of pristine ignorance? Only you can find out, fateful puppeteer. You will travel the world, and meet the guardians you know so well. However, you will face enemies and foes unlike anything you've imagined. New allies will join your side, and new personalities will be explored. New places will be visited, a zone that defies the logic and reason of the world you know. Puzzles that expand beyond the game and into our world. You will become one with your puppet, and in your combined state you will bring the land to the closure it deserves. The fate, and the direction of that closure however, is up to the decisions you make. Choose wisely my friend, its up to you to save their HOME.

HOME is a non-canonical fangame created with the permission of Mortis Ghosts, the creator of OFF - the game from which HOME was inspired. You take control of The Judge in this project, and see the world through his eyes.



New characters and enemies are introduced in this story, with a combat system that's more threatening and challenging than OFF's style. HOME makes uses of the elements and status effect system and stretches is as far as possible. It's recommended you play Mortis Ghosts "OFF" before you touch this project, as this game and its entirety is connected and continued after OFF. Playing HOME without first playing OFF will not only lead to spoilers but will lead you to a path of confusion and detachment from the entire world.

The game features custom sprites, music, icons, sound effects, and battle animations. It uses as much fresh resources where and whenever possible.

In Memoriam

It is incredibly sad to have to break this news to those who may not know of it as yet, but the creator of this game, TheJudge, passed away recently.

As such we, the staff of RMN, are posting this blog informing all who knew him and enjoyed his games (both in the past and the future) of this tragedy.

Too soon we have lost another comrade to that final rest. May you remain forever in our hearts, Judge.


Rest in Peace

What am I doing wrong in the Enoch room? I touched the blocks in the order of the numbers in the story but it didn't work.....

the solution should be 3-5-6-1-3-2
Okay so, I really enjoy this game, possibly more than Off. The puzzles are great, the story line is keeping me very entertained... However one thing is bothering me. The fight with the Queen. Why is she so impossible? All of my characters are at level 40 as of now, the equipment best fitting them is what they have.
I have been trying at this battle for about 4 hours now, and nothing but defeat. Is there something I'm missing here? Some kind of secret hint to beat the Queen?
Help!

When is the new version coming out?

Soon, even sooner now that I have internet.
I'm currently in Area 1 for Zone 3 and the screen doesn't follow The Judge when he walks off, so I'm left with the beginning area and no sprite to control. Help?

*Edit*
Actually, the entirety of Zone 3 isn't working correctly.

Hmm? I haven't encountered this bug at all. can you post a screenshot?
*edit* yeah. Just ran through Zone 3 and not a single issue with the camera or anything of the likes. At what point in Area 1 does the screen stop following the judge?
Hiya Mr. Judge I have reason to believe I found a bug upon starting up the game (this is my first time playing too) I began in zone three and I can't access the main menu whenever I start the game it begins in zone three with a level one Judge (thankfully he starts right next to the save block) after wandering around and getting blown up in a random encounter it restarted in zone three like before after warping to zone zero and walking around a bit the first batter cut-scene played out then I lost all control and can't do anything (I took the .zip download instead of the .rar download if it helps)
UPDATE* I finally got the .rar download to work (I had to open the download button in a new tab who would have guessed?) and no more zone three craziness.

the .zip download is broken and I forgot to fix it sorry. D:
Hiya it's me again I think I may have found another bug *POTENTIAL SPOILER*(for those of you who care about that jazz) in zone 4 after entering that weird white room with all the ducks on the floor and wandering around a bit the judge began to endlessly walk to the right(I can still make him walk up and down but left is a no-go) and now I'm trapped in duck limbo I tried to load up an old save but he is doing it there too(I spared enoch if that helps)
P.S im pretty sure nothing is wrong with my keyboard as I typed this I keep moving the line-thingy back and forth just to test my right and left arrow keys

The beginning to run to the right is not an issue with HOME, but RPG Maker itself. The only solution is to restart your computer. This specific issue is universal across all RPG Maker 2k3 games. It's a bug in the games registry that makes the game believe you're pressing right.
thank you kindly I was worried I might have to restart the whole game over again and sorry for the trouble
I'm sorry for bugging you, but my friend and I are pixel artists, and he likes to mess around with game coding. He got the strange idea of putting our OCs into this game, just for laughs, you know? I was wondering if 1: You would be ok with that, and 2: If you could point me in the right direction. He wants to exchange The Judge for his cat OC, and the Add-Ons for my Pokémon OC. We won't give it to anyone, it's more along the lines of us doing something for ourselves. So, I get my part done, and sprite my character, and then I have no idea what to do. Do you think you could help me out, please?

Edit: I sent my half of the sprites to him, and he combined them here: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Kai-and-Silver-in-OFF-Complete-535846620
Are you talking about modding OFF? You'll need RPG Maker, and you'll have to download OFF (Or HOME if you're modding HOME.) and then find the sprites for the characters and replace them with your sprites. These sprites will be in battle animation folder, and the battle character set folder.
*facepalm* I should've guessed. Thank you for your help, I mean it!
I just downloaded the game, but when I tried to run it, it says system2 won't open. I generally have problems opening RPGmaker games (Ib and Off specifically) but I've been able to figure those out. I can't with this one, though >.> I don't suppose anyone knows how to fix this? Thanks ^^'

Copy system2 from OFF and place it within the System folder of HOME.

Copy system2 from OFF and place it within the System folder of HOME.

I've tried doing that (both having both system2 files merge (I reckoned I shouldn't change their names to stop it) and having Off's system2 replace Home's) and I'm still encountering the same error?
(Thanks for replying so fast btw)

Can you post a screenshot of the error? Also how recently did you download HOME? No one else has really reported this issue so I'm having a hard time figuring out whats going on. It's causing me to stress out because generally copying the system2 from OFF and the folder system 2 fixes the issue.

There's a good chance it's something to do with my computer
Here's the error I'm getting
It might have something to do with the errors I used to get opening Off (which opened Ib and said something like ?????black????? and Ib now say's something along the lines of black not found)
Anyway

I'm hoping that works...
