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

With Halloween on the horizon this is the ideal game to get you in the mood. It reminds me a little of casper the friendly ghost in its style.

You play a ghost trying to scare everyone out of town by posessing objects in the various buildings. the more you scare people the more you can affect the items in the house to increase their terror levels.

The aim is to scare everyone out of the buildings and can be easier said than done as some people need specific items and objects moved in specific ways to do this. When you scare these individuals away you unlock new ghosts to play as.

Overall a very fun game but possibly a little light on content as i finished 1 building in about 10 minutes, but reasonable for just a few pounds.

+ Fun cartoon style.
+ Lots of different objects to posess and interact with.
+ Unlockable ghosts.
+ Great for Halloween

- Possibly a little short on content, but reasonable for the price

Haunt the House: Terrortown is in essence a game about playing the man behind the haunted house curtain. As a lonely ghost (or so I would assume, given the story centers around reclaiming the souls of others so as to collect a band of ghost friends...or something like that) it's your job to float around and posses objects to scare the living daylights out of party goers until they either abandon ship (sometimes literally) or out of stubbornness end up dead at your ghostly hands.

The problem I have with HtH is that there really isn't enough - it - here. It's mechanics are incredibly shallow and inconsistent, largely boiling down to spamming random scares until the person you are scaring finally gets the idea and fleas the scene, which doesn't really give you much of anything to work with. It never feels like you have any real control over anything, as people will run any which way they want often irregardless of how scared they are or where the source of their terror is. It makes actually getting anyone out of the house (or wherever you might happen to be) rather tedious and uninteresting, like you're shooing flies with a newspaper, occasionally lucking out and hitting one.

I guess it's somewhat a blessing then that the game is completable in under 30 minutes, as any longer and I'd likely have dropped it out of boredom, but that then falls back into the issue of there not being much of anything here. It feels like a free game fancied up into something that might resemble a fuller experience, which is pretty much exactly what Terrortown is: a slightly larger version of the original Haunt the House flash game, which more than likely lasts as long as you would want to spend with the game, and is far easier to recommend being that it's still freely available.

Cutest thing EVER!!! I absolutely adore this game, and the main ghost is the most kawaii being of all time! Even more kawaii than Kirby!

This is a really cute game. I don't regret purchasing it. I would had loved it though if there was more to do and more places to 'haunt'. The design of the game is cute, too. Maybe if things, such as how much you can do within one place, was stretched out to more places it would had made the game so much better, and longer. That's my only complaint about this game.

Cute , Awesome , Spooky and Fun game even though it's a short game it's still Fun for me because your main role here is you're a ghost and and just scare people and you can kill few people too. 8/10

It's boring, anoing achievements and really easy game... It is cute and nice gameplay but it is too short and very few options.
Most important of all... You don't have fun playing it. It is a big waste of money.

The horrifying part of Terrortown is NOT being a ghost and scaring the ♥♥♥♥ out of people and maybe making them commit suicide by jumping out of windows.

The horrifying part of Terrortown is the systematic murder of your entire family so that you can be together again.

100/10 would kill them all again

While the game is fun, It's far too short. the entire game is only two levels, and can be completed in under 45 minutes. despite it's enjoyable gameplay, after you have played it once and found all the combinations, there is little reason to play more. buy it only if on sale.

Cute, funny and a tiny bit scary. Its a great game but has low replay value. You could go full out and get every achievement but eh. ;3 I give a 6/10

Not worth the money, even if you buy it on a sale, this game can be completed in half an hour, to short time specially to leave anything to the gamer as an experience.
