When will the dlc be released on this platform?

This was one of my favorite games I played in 2021 so I had to put it in my channel's 2021 recap

does anyone know the game engine the creators used? cannot find it for the life of me


How do you sprint using Xbox Controller controls?

Hey, I'm looking for a new horror game to play, but I don't do well with jumpscares- does this have any?

There are a few deaths that can be surprising, but no outright jumpscares

can you send it to me please

cant make it work. What are the system requirements?

me encanta el diseño y la musica, ojala pudiera pasarlo xD

What engine does this game use?

exceptional game 



this game is hard for my small brain but i will post again when i upload part 2 of this game


Such a cozy House, where nothing spooky goes on and everything is absolutely fine. From the atmosphere driving music to the bouncy pixels everyone has, I'm enjoying it so far. Pity about the cat though...

Good job, devs.

Part 2!

Dying hurts.

Part 3!

When titans attack!

Part 4!


Part 5!

Game puts you through the ringer if you want success...

Part 6!

Ugh, these frogs...

The game is great.  Great puzzles.  I hope you keep adding to it

does anybody know where tabby lives after the true ending?

very very good game i really Enjoyed every "waking second.."

Bruh, this game need money :(

Does anyone know to kill the freaking fridge demon that comes out? I have been trying for ages and I can't work it out. Help?

Chop his arm off with axe. Run around and he will disappear when time is up (i forgot how long it was)

Are there any plans for a Linux release? I'm also interested on a Spanish translation and I'll be glad to help with one

here's a few tips for people who don't already know (SPOILERS), when you run into the snail in the piano room it is recommended that you pick it up because it will give you more stamina when you run, when you drop the bowling ball onto the carpet that appears in the hallway it'll stop moving (the carpet will stop moving, not the bowling ball), the bucket to stop the leak in the kitchen is in the basement on a shelf but you need to use the slingshot to get it down,to talk to the creature in the toilet instead of it killing you after you flush you have to kill your sister and cat first i think (to make the toilet monster appear you have to turn off the lights and THEN flush the toilet), if you've killed everyone and everything and the monster in the toilet says there's one more soul

that last soul is the doll that keeps asking you to hold her, when the cat catches fire use the water bucket to save it, to kill the dad you have to use the axe (or slingshot i think) and shoot the vase in the piano room and get the shotgun shell out of it also i am pretty sure there is a bullet on the shelf in the basement where the rat is and make sure to drop the bowling ball in the piano room so you can get the bear trap, HOW TO KILL DAD: go into hallway, drop bear trap in a spot where he will step on it, shoot him once he rips himself off of his feet, shoot his head when it leaves his body.


Your game is phenominal and has given me some ideas. Is there any way i could get connected?

Do you guys have any plans on releasing this to android or ios devices. As in mobile or will this be a computer game?

Why do they not include Steam keys with the purchase?

what is the point of this game? is it just to die over and over again or is the point to try to save everyone in the house?


Both, you can Either save them or slay them :)

(1 edit)

are those the condition required to beat the game? what is the game exactly looking for to tell you won?

(1 edit) (+1)(-2)


I'd like to think that it's a choose your own ending and choose your own adventure kind of thing :) 

You get whichever ending you want, personally I'll keep the ending where the house is destroyed and the curse gets lifted but my family dies, since they weren't having such a nice life at least now they are free from the house even if it means they died 😂


please dont tell me your ending I have not played that far yet into the game and how do only think it is a choose your own ending when this is a game you made no?

kguidomv88 did not make the game, the game was made by the user known as: barkbarkgames, the person with the profile image of a dog, and yes the game is kind of a "choose your own adventure" kind of thing, like a "which way?" book...except it's a game.

doing those things are not required to beat the game... at least i don't think so, but it's kinda like undertale (except not an RPG), it's like undertale because you can do almost whatever you want, just to see what happens, also make sure to leave the fridge open after mom falls asleep on the kitchen chair.

I am sure that is sage advice for this game but it still funny to read it in sentence.

there are many things you can do in this game, for example: you could save everyone and use the gun to kill your dad at the end, or you can kill everyone and when dad comes home he hugs you and says you've been a good girl, or you could just do whatever you feel like doing, like killing the cat out of boredom and then splashing your little sister with water while she plays piano, or you could try and find out all the ways to die and how many deaths there are

I trying to not read some of your replies yet and save them for when I there because I did not even know you got to meet the father in this game and also i have not even made it to the gun I played it once for about 20 or so minutes and stopped.

if you wait around enough and let the time pass by in the game, dad comes home. (DON'T READ AHEAD RIGHT HERE BECAUSE IS SPOILER/ADVICE THING I GUESS) also when the mom makes sandwiches there is a leaky roof in the kitchen and she slips on the puddle on the floor and dies, but you can prevent this so she doesn't become a zombie and kill you, grab the bowling ball from the living room, drop it on the cat to kill it and get the key, (or use milk to get the cat off of its cushion) go into the basement thing, (bottom left door in living room), drop the bowling ball and a bucket will fall, put the bucket in the kitchen and on the spot where the water is dripping.

mom I knew was going to die because I watched some of the makiplier playthrough of the game I just have not played it again myself but tonight I probably will, You think of sitting down and writing a walkthrough of the game you could help a lot of people and you seem to be pretty solid in your knowledge of the game.

yeah i know some things about the game, whenever i really get into a game i try to learn as much about it as i can (i know WAY too much about undertale) you should also watch the youtuber H2ODELIRIOUS, it's not my channel (i don't have a channel) but he's pretty funny and he made some videos about the HOUSE game (it's split into 3 videos) also there are some friends of H2ODELIROUS that have some funny channels, the channel names are: VANOSS, BASICALLYIDOWRK, NOGLA (i forgot the full channel name for nogla), LUICALIBRE, and a few others i think i forgot, and if you ever think about coding games (or watching someone make epic games) you should watch DANI, he makes some cool games that you can also download on itch, like: MILKMAN KARLSON, KARLSON (a 2D version), KARLSON (a 3D DEMO of the one on STEAM), BALLS, FARTY ROCKET, RE-WIND, and that's all i can think of. (but there is another game he has on STEAM called MUCK *it's a survival game* and in it he "TOTALLY DIDN'T STEAL" the inventory from minecraft, and he wondered "where do characters store items in games like that? because it can't ALL fit in their pockets?" and whenever you store items in your inventory in MUCK (especially if it's alot of items) the character's SAUSAGE kinda uh... makes a lump in the rag your character uses for clothing.

I don't have a full keyboard so I don't have arrow keys wich is making the game hard for me, is there anyway I can change the keybinds?

Hey Krysters, sorry to hear about that. We're currently working on an in-game keybind setting for an upcoming update, but here is a link to some temporary solutions

thank you! <3

hey, sorry to ask again but i never got any response when i asked the first time. what gave you the idea to make this game? was it the kind of game that you make for starting out and it just blows up? or was it just some spooky idea you had? or maybe did you get the inspiration for this game from a different game(s)?

(1 edit)

why on earth dont you just go buy a full keyboard you can get them really cheap. I mean just so you have a full keyboard not just for this game. You could probably buy one for as much as this game cost.

the game was a gift, I did not buy it myself, I live under circumstances where I cannot use my own money for such things.

ok I assuming that is because your a kid still living at home with mom and dad. Nothing wrong with that but why can they not buy you a keyboard with everything on it.

Not everyone is lucky enough to be born with good parents sadly. My whole computer setup is a gift from cousins and siblings, my parents don’t give me anything.

(1 edit)

I am poor too but still can afford 7 bucks for a keyboard I also just checked online and found one for 3.99 us

Hi! Thanks for making a great game. Do you plan to support languages other than English in the future? If so, I'd love to help you to add my language(Korean). Please let me know if I can help you! Thanks!

Thanks for playing.

We have localized the game in simplified chinese, but do have plans for more languages in the future!

Glad to hear that!

Please let me know if you need any help. I can help translate your game into my language!

quick question for barkbarkgames: what gave you the idea to make this game? was it the kind of game that you make for starting out and it just blows up? or was it just some spooky idea you had?

or maybe did you get the inspiration for this game from a different game(s)?

Hi there!

This game started out as a gamejam game on Newgrounds in 2016 and then we spent the last few years turning it into a full game! 

A few things that were an inspiration for us: A 1977 japanese horror film Hausu, Yume Nikki, Junji Ito, Lakeview Cabin, to name a few!

Hey, thanks for answering my question i was really puzzled, i have an idea for an update to the game, i doubt it'll be used tho: so even though it's a horror game that's supposed to be scary, i thought it'd be funny if you guys made a reference to the super mario 64 evil piano and managed to fit in something where you end up not destroying the piano somehow, like pushing the piano to the side of the room and the chandelier still ends up falling naturally due to time or you can shoot it down with the slingshot, and the little sister gets eaten by the piano and every time you enter THAT specific room, the piano tries to eat you, and it can't leave the room because it can't fit through the door.

Hi! I love your game so far, but do you plan on releasing a walkthrough/ending guide at some point? There are so many small details in this game, I worry that I might miss something without one!

hey, my mom told me a distant family member made a game so i went to go buy this and play it :)

Did you guys beat it?
