Home by Dark is a story game inspired by the resourceful and misunderstood kids of many 80’s films, along with the myriad homage films and series that have come since. You’ll play kids, teens, and adults that have discovered a powerful innocent in your small town. You must protect it from nefarious pursuers that want it for their own plans, all the while avoiding the growing danger that threatens the town. You and your friends help to protect this mysterious secret while insecurities, fears, and latent drama from their own lives will surface and threaten to unravel the whole plan.
