I loved this! Its way more fast-pace then I thought it would be. I loved the background story too!

This game is seriously dope. I played it as my first live stream and made a lil highlight reel. I still have to go back and figure out the correct series of events. But man..... It is so short for each playthrough, but still packed with so much stuff. It is freaking amazing. I want more lol

thanks for playing! the next update is coming soon :) 

Art looks amazing!

This game is tough! It's one of those games that is excruciating at first, but you learn, grow and come out the other end feeling smarter lol. I saved the sister, but I know I missed a few things and there's more to do. I'm excited to see what you do with House!

thanks for playing! the next update should be out in the next week or so! :)

Is the Steam version of this game identical as the latest version on this site? (I'll try to say this spoilerfree) I've got a really hard time to fight the monster that comes out of the white machine that also delivers milk. Or should I just try again?

they are both the same version.

I bought the game but at the moment when it´s about to complete downloading it says that it couldn´t dowload

Hi there. Were you able to resolve this? 

It might be an issue with your browser and/or itch.io. I can send you the game directly if you can provide me with your e-mail address.

Is the flute ending the best ending?

What do I do with the sandwich? Is the mother even real? TOO MANY QUESTIONS! AAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

Hey Bark Bark Games, you made an awesome game, I really enjoyed it so far. Sad thing is that I killed that cat. Thank God it respawned in the new run.

Justo en la pobreza XD, a ahorrar se ha dicho uwu

I just noticed Melody’s Theme is actually a piano remix of the Main Theme from Hausu/House, you sly dog

Yes it's amazing.

Thank you

Hello! I would like to suggest an idea for a new bad ending. How about the absolute extermination of all beings and people in the house, including the father of the family. To do this, you will have to add new weapons, because what is now is not enough for this

Hello! First of I wanted to say that you've made an amazing game. I've seen a few youtubers play it and it immediately caught my attention, so I bought it. I have two problems with the game tho, and i thought that maybe someone here knows how to fix them. So, everytime I open the folder I need to extract files to play and in the game, when I open the menu and go to options I can't choose save and data. I've tried every button on the keyboard, but it just doesn't work.I don't knowh if i'm doing something wrong or if that's an issue in the game. I hope someone here- the developers or one of the players could help me. Sorry if I'm asking in the wrong place.

Hi there! So the in game menu option for saving is just "clear save data" The game just auto-saves when you complete the different endings.

Would you mind sharing a screenshot of your issue?

(2 edits) (+1)

I can't believe that I haven't noticed that before, thank you! I unfortunetely can't post screenshots here, but I thought that photo of the screen might work.

So, after downloading House folder looks like this:

I click on the folder House.zip and then 'extract files', so the files House.exe and icon.ico have main character's face on them and everything works. But right after I close the folder and open it up again, everything looks like in the photo. So I extract again and while extracting it seems like the files are already extracted, because while extracting it says that I'm just switching them with the same files.

(+2)

It looks like you are just re-opening the zip folder, not the folder where you extracted the files. When you unzip it should tell you where the location is that it’s sending those files.

(1 edit) (+1)

Just like you said, I extracted it and searched for it in the wrong folder. I'm sorry for taking your time, turns out it's not the game, I just don't know how stuff works xD. Now, when everything is fixed it promisses to be a sleepless night for me :) Thank you so much for helping me!

I know this may seem impossible but I realized that this would make for an amazing horror/puzzle game for the VR. The artistic style may be changed but the feeling of unease would translate well with the dark rooms and the many threats the house throws at you. The puzzle part would also translate well since you'd have to interact with your surroundings in order to stay alive. Just throwing out an idea for this awesome game.

Just wanted to say...  Great game.  I've been having fun working out everyone's routine, and trying to figure out how to save my family.  (I only bought this a few hours ago, and am still trying to find a good ending without getting killed.  XD)


The horror factor feels real.  It doesn't just throw jumpscares at you like some other games do, but rather the game takes its time to make the atmosphere less settling (and more dangerous!).  Another nice touch is the variety of traps, monsters, and of course death animations this game has.  Keeps me on my toes, and surprises me each time I stumble.

To anyone else just discovering this, I can tell you that this is more than just a simple pixel-art game; it's a complex puzzle with a truly creepy atmosphere.

Thank you so much!

I really love this game, I think there's really not enough games in this type of style. I'll definitely be recommending it to others!

I especially appreciate a horror game without jumpscares!

Do you have anywhere to report bugs? I've noticed some that I think would be easy to miss.

(+1)

Thank you for playing! We just made a devlog where you can post any bugs you find! :o

Looks awesome

Hi! I'm absolutely loving the game so far but I have a question, when you release the game on Steam/Epic Store/GOG do you plan on giving out a key to the people who already purchased the game on Itch.io? Not that I'm unopposed to buying it again, I absolutely would!

That red background makes everything else look green when I gaze away from the screen.

(1 edit)

I think this game is awesome, he has alternate endings so we never tire of it. The atmosphere and the sprites go well together and I really like these type of mysters. I recommend you to play this game. You do an excellent job Bark bark games. To thank you here is a little drawing. https://img.itch.zone/aW1nLzQ0NzgwNzYucG5n/original/297Dkq.png

Hope this isn't creepy to say but just wanted to say I love this so much. I've always been a huge fan for pattern based time management games like this and it totally hit an itch i haven't been able to scratch for a WHILE. Fantastic job, showing all my friends this and can't wait for the update next week!!

thanks so much!!!

Hello dear developer, I am interested in your project, it has an unusual concept. At first glance it looks like a simple pixel game, but after a while you realize that this game has a lot of thoughtful details. I would like to see your project on mobile devices if this is possible.

Good projects don't always come out on android and ios, for example:Yuppie psycho. I believe that projects like yours should be ported to mobile devices. I understand perfectly well that this is difficult.
I wish you the best of luck with bug fixes and further improvements to the game and its universe.)

(+1)

Thanks for checking out HOUSE!

As of now we don't have any plans to release an iOS/Android version...but never say never. :)

(1 edit)

I am glad to hear from you, thank you for your answer. I will be waiting for your future projects.

Good luck with your game development!


Hey just downloaded the game when trying to play theres no audio. Is there anyway to fix?

(+1)

Make sure you have up-to-date audio drivers. Also check and see if you have Java updated as well.

Thanks its working now and we're LOVING the game

so glad to hear that!

If I may make suggestions for future content, have saving the cat be required to achieve any new "good ending". Also make its ghost a hazard (similar to the sister's) that only appears if the cat dies but the mother and sister are saved and the giant rat is befriended. Seeing videos where people get the good ending while intentionally killing the cat seems a tad silly and that would be a neat little nod to it.

(+1)

Hi! We actually have a pacifist /pure ending planned where saving the cat is required. That will be a part of the update coming out for Halloween :)

Killing the cat / letting it die does cause a certain angry cat spirit to linger around the house ! :o

Nice to hear!

Hmm... never saw it. Guess I have to look harder.

This was an awesome game to play! The moment I saw it I knew it was worth buying it, and it was. I really love the art style and the soundtrack adds a really subtle but nice touch to the game.I hope you make more games in the future cause I'd certainly buy them! 

(+1)

thank you for playing! so glad to hear you enjoyed it. we are hard at work on the next couple updates and then we will start work on some new projects!

Hey there!

This is a really nice game, I have just a question. I've noticed the original game (and this one) have a couple of references to the the Japanese surreal horror movie Hausu. Was this game inspired by that movie? Or were they added in after the fact as sort of a nice nod?

Hello there!

I played your game on Newgrounds and was wondering how different this one is. Is it the same game with more features? A sequel? I really enjoyed the first game anyway. BTW, was it made with GMS2?

(+1)

Hi! We made the original game in about a month for a game jam. We took our time trying to take the idea as far as we could and deliver a full satisfying experience for this one. And there’s still more to come! Hope you enjoy it. 

Thank you for your prompt reply. I want to support you. I'm pretty new on Itch.io, I usually buy my game on Steam or GOG but I did buy some assets on Itch.io. If I buy your game, will it works as standalone or do I have to download a program to make it works? Also, what engine did you use to create your game? GameMaker Studio 2? Your handmade engine? Thanks

(+1)

When you buy via itch, you get the folder for our game itself. No additional program to download. We do plan on releasing HOUSE onto steam / other places as well but the date for that is currently up in the air.

I know, it's not free to publish your game on Steam (about $100 from what I heard) and it's probably worst when you want to publish them on console like Nintendo Switch and PS4. Anyway, your game is awesome, I can't help thinking of it lately. Did you do it alone? I know how hard is it to make a game on your own...

Getting my brain in bigbrain mode to figure everything out, though I am having trouble finding out how to save the sister, and where to use the doll or slingshot, Gah!

Neco you can aim with the slingshot, that is my tip to u oldman

Hi. I hope you don't mind me asking, but where is the first game everyone is talking about? I like to play games in order, so it would be cool to be able to play that one first and than this one.

(+1)

Hi there! You can still play the original version over on Newgrounds!

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/683412

Thank you very much! I'll play that one first and support this one as well! I'm really looking forward to playing!

oh my gosh!!! im a HUGE fan of the first game!!! this just made my whole entire year dude!!!! oh my gosh!!! it loks so good! sorry for fanboy-ing but holy cow im seriously in love with this game! 

(+1)

That means so much! Thanks for being a fan and hope you enjoy the new one. 

Are there multiple endings, if so, how many ;o?

(+1)

Yup. There are currently 3 different endings. (With a few more to come in the future)

Would you know how many unique deaths there are in the game as of v1.0? For the MC and everyone else? I'm wanting to get them all.

(+1)

Too many! Haha. 

game looks cool.
