We just launched Detective Grimoire on Steam! 30% off for the first week!

Hello everyone! Back in February, Haunt the House: Terrortown was greenlit, and at the same time, it was joined by our other game Detective Grimoire.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/272600

Today we've finally released it here on Steam. So if you enjoyed Haunt the House, you might enjoy Detective Grimoire!

In HtH news, there's an update coming later this week that adds official PS3/PS4 controller support, as well as fixed the rare Mac crash. I'm just testing it a few more times then I'll push it live!

Cheers,
Tom-

Steam Summer Sale!

Hello everyone!

It's time for the Steam Summer Sale, our first! For the duration of the sale, Haunt the House: Terrortown will be 10% off. That probably seems a little low, but I don't want everyone who bought the game for 20% off during the first week to feel cheated, since it's only been out 2 weeks!

If we do get picked for a feature spot in the sale, the game will be back to that same 20% off, but definitely no more than that until the next sale, later in the year!

Don't forget, Haunt the House: Terrortown has trading cards available, which go towards Steams Summer Adventure promotion during the sale!

Reviews

“Honestly I fell in love with the concept behind Haunt the House the moment I heard about it.”
4/5 – PSNStores

“The visuals are gorgeous, with a unique style which is both cute and creepy at the same time. The audio is also impressive, boasting effective spot effects and some genuinely amusing sounds.”
7/10 – Pocket Gamer

“There's a surprisingly dark heart beating away inside this cheery little Halloween special. There's a genuine sense of mischief, too, conveyed by the bug-eyed howls of your prey and the looping, lilting tones of the jazz-club soundtrack.”
8/10 – Eurogamer

First of all go play the original flash game version of Haunt the House on Kongregate or Newgrounds or whatever.

All right did you do that? Yeah? Well if you liked that and wanted a few new levels and to support the devs than Terrortown is for you because that's what it is, more Haunt the House. Nothing much different aside from an improved atmopshere. As people say it is short but right now you can get it for less than 3 dollars and that's the price of a candy bar or something. I thought it was worth it and you can always just come back to it for some quick fun.

In this game, you are a lonely ghost who killed everyone you love.

This 30 mins is darker than we thought.

8/10 spooky confirmed!

This game is boring as hell. It requires NO skill, other than waiting for someone to be near you when you push one of the few buttons that do anything. The look of it is cute, but I can't recommend the game at any actual price.

Buy It while Its on Sale, Cause I beat it in 10 Minutes. Fun to Play, But only four levels. Trailer shows you pretty much all the gameplay, not disatisfied, just wish it could be longer.

I got this game during the 2014 Halloween sale, and I gotta say it's super addicting and the art style for this game is cute and unique. The only thing I'd have to say I dislike about this game is that it's very short, so I'm glad I got the game for a mere $2.49 rather than $5.00; there's just not enough content. In just 30 minutes I completed the game, now I'm just getting the achievements to make the game last longer and have more fun with it.

Overall, I really like this game and I had a lot of fun with it! Get it on sale while you can, guys.

Although the game is very short-lived, the first hours always occupy you with spooky-good fun.

Not worth the money finished the game in 30 mins. Bought it during the sale and still a rip off for so little content and no real replayability.

This is a cute little game where you play as a little ghostie and scare the ♥♥♥♥ out of people.
The different ways you can scare people with objects is pretty creative.
Wish there were more levels though.

Warning: this is an incredibly short game. I'm not saying it's no fun, but it is really short. You can finish this game within 45 min. Easily.

So having had that part: I did enjoy this game. The gameplay is simple to understand and your objective isn't that hard. But I did like it. Finding the other ghosts was nice and scaring the people is fun. Personally I really like to scare them so much they jump out of a window. XD. The artwork was nice and it got me into a halloween mood, so that is good.

I wouldn't buy this at full price though, I recommend buying this game when it's on sale.
