About this game

DOT’S HOME is a single-player, 2D, narrative-driven video game that follows a young Black woman in Detroit living in her grandmother’s beloved home, as she travels through time to relive key moments in her family’s history where race, place, and home collide in difficult choices.

As an interactive experience, DOT’S HOME allows players to see the harmful systems that dictate our relationship to race and place, through the eyes of those that are most impacted. By inserting the player into scenarios where they have to make choices about how and where to live in the midst of redlining, urban renewal, and gentrification, we ask a fundamental question: “How did your family end up where they are today, and how much choice did they really have in that journey?”

DOT’S HOME is a production of the Rise-Home Stories project: a creative collaboration between multimedia storytellers and housing and land justice advocates who have come together over the course of three years, to reimagine the past, present, and future of our communities by transforming the stories we tell about them.

An incredible game with a relatable female protagonist, who travels back in time due to a magical key. She experiences what her community was like way back, and her parents struggle to live their best life. Marvelous visuals, easy enough controls, interesting story and overall decent app design. Great job to the developers of this game!!!👍🏾👏🏾

This is a good, short game with an interesting story, exploring themes around family history, housing, redlining, and community spirit. It's well worth a play through, and it's free!

What's new

- Fixed typo in the first dialogue with Dot's grandparents in the Kitchen (1959).

- Switched the speakers of the first two lines of the second Apartment Hallway (1992) eavesdrop dialogue in Chapter 2, so now the correct characters are saying those lines.
