Sweet Home follows the exploits of five members of an investigation group: Kazuo, Akiko, Taro, Asuka, and Emi. The famous painter Mamiya Ichirou lived many years in a secluded mansion, and rumor says there are some valuable frescos to find inside. Our investigators decide to take some pictures of the frescos. However, upon entering the mansion, a ghost-like figure of Mamiya appears and threatens them. After this, they find themselves trapped in the mansion. The heroes must now find a way out of the mansion, not forgetting the frescos they came there for, and the destiny of an earlier investigation group that has disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

The game mixes role-playing with survival horror elements. The basic structure is that of a Japanese-style RPG: characters fight random monsters in turn-based battles, equip various weapons and level up. The player must form different teams from the five available characters, both for battles and for solving puzzles. Each character has his (or her) own item-based skill: Taro can take pictures, Emi can unlock almost any door, Kazuo has a lighter, Akiko uses a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and other obstacles, and Asuka has medical kits.

A movie with the same name was released in conjunction with the game (or vice versa). Although the plots differ, the cover art for the game is the same as the movie poster. The movie trailer also featured footage from the game.


As mentioned in the game description Sweet Home is widely believed to be one of pioneering games of the survival horror genre. And indeed, in the game you will find a note that says "You must escape this house of residing evil!".

Translation patch

Although the game was never released outside of Japan, the people at Gaijin Productions have translated it to English. The translation patch can be found here.
