Home Movie is an interactive new media documentary that uses 3D animation, documentary film, as well as real-time game mechanics to rebuild and explore disappearing neighborhoods from my home in the westside of Detroit. The project draws on collective memory (i.e., interviews, dialogues with family and other members of my close community, as well as personal and archival footage) to rebuild my forgotten neighborhoods within Detroit.

Directions:

This game offers a sort of classic controller system similar to most computer games! 

Here we use the keyboard and mouse to move, as well as look around each space. Move the mouse/trackpad to look in any direction - left, right, up, or down. 

Use the up and down arrow keys or the W and S keys to move forward or backward - the left and right arrow to rotate/strafe - or A and D keys to rotate/strafe

When wandering around each neighborhood you’ll probably notice pillars of light. They usually represent a memory! It's helpful to collect them in order to move forward, and on to another neighborhood. 

Each time you collect a memory they are stored, and archived in the player menu. Here you can review, and most importantly remember each space by pressing "esc" on your keyboard!

Enjoy, and I hope to see you around!

Please watch for addition game directions and information!

Seems very interesting! When will the windows version come out?

I will have one up this week! Before July 10th

Sorry, but does it have windows version now? Because i really want to buy it but i dont see version for windows

Due to the current world conditions there have been delays on my travels back to the studio (quarantine etc.) . I will be back soon, and at that point add another build. Very sorry for the delays.

Ok no problem

So sorry for the delay! Finally a PC version has been added to the bundle! I truly apologize for the delay, and can assure you that ALL projects of my will be available on multiple platforms moving forward. Much love, Bryan
