Many years after splitting up and leaving to pursue careers and in bigger cities, a group of people get together and come back to the small town where they all grew up just to find their old home completely empty. Everybody vanquished leaving behind old memories and many mysteries. Can they found out the truth of what happened? Or will they end up with assumptions and unanswered questions?
Hometown is a mixed media coop (or singleplayer) board game for up to 8 players about exploring your old home, taking a trip down memory lane but also getting to know how much things changed while they were out. You must follow clues and solve questions to understand why everybody disappeared, perhaps it was a tragedy or maybe a there is a pleasant surprise to be uncovered, or even something completely surreal. With plenty of places to visit and places to investigate, if you piece the puzzle together you will find out the truth but if you fail to do so, you'll end up in a inconclusive dead end.
