Sweet Home is floating around on Youtube and stuff, it's the same Video Search of Miami-subbed version that I got back in 1997 around the time I tracked down a copy of the game. If xerxes is up for it I'm all for doing a two or three man MST3K/rifftrax livecast.
And if Chakan wins, Pokey will personally touch every other TWO podcasts after playing with his salmonella-laden feces all morning.
Checking IMDB the Sweet Home movie appears that it could actually be decent, it may be too good to fairly rifftrax but lets do it anyway. Afterwards we can watch Hausu.
The best thing about it is the gore and creature effects by Dick Smith. Hausu is definitely better, though. They both feature people being slaughtered by asshole Japanese ghosts though, so it would work as a double feature. Seriously, fuck you, Japanese ghosts...why do you have to be such asswipes?
About the Game -------------- Sweet Home is a Famicom game released by Capcom in 1989. The game is an RPG that incorporates "survival horror" elements. The game stars five members of an investigation team, equipped with... well, your standard investigation equipment (Cigarette Lighter, Medicine Box, Camera, Vacuum, and a Key). The team enters the abandoned Mamiya Mansion to investigate and document the painter Mamiya Ichirou's famous frescoes. However, as soon as they enter they find themselves trapped within the manor and terrorized at every turn. You must guide the five characters through various puzzles and battles to escape the mansion.
The original Japanese names romanized into English are as follows: Kazuo Akiko Taguchi Asuka Emi However the game only allows a maximum of six letters for each name. "Taguchi" obviously exceeds the length limitation by one. In addition, the game only allows the default names to be five letters long. "Taguchi" has been replaced with the name "Taro". Also to clarify Kazuo and Taguchi are male while the other three are female. So be mindful if you choose to rename them.
This game fits in well with the rest of the Resident Evil series. While the game is not an official prequel, it is often cited as the inspiration for the Resident Evil/Biohazard series that began on the PSX. Sweet Home can safely be classified as a puzzle-RPG with "Survival Horror" elements. For a Famicom game it is extraordinarily graphic at times.
