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

August 18th, 2014

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!

June 20th, 2014

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

It's a good game, but I can't recommend it because of how little content you're getting for the price. I blew through this game in under an hour even by taking my time and attempting to use every ability of every object.

Denny Crane still ain't afraid of no ghosts. But to BE a ghost? Simply fun. Fun for the whole family, politically safe and just charming. This game proves there are still game makers out there who put all their heart and... soul into their projects. Support these fine people. Denny Crane says it is well worth it.

Why there isn't the "Mixed" button in this review!?

I mean, I personally like this game a lot. The overall style and atomosphere is just great. But I wouldn't recommend this to others because of its length. Is it too much to wish the experience lasted a little longer?

I didn't expect Haunt The House Terrortown to be this short. 30 minutes is all it took. Then the credits started rolling. Look up 'disappointing' in the dictionary and it probably shows the title of this game.
And it was pretty good actually. Possessing objects and interacting with them is fun. Especially if you can scare a bunch of people at the same time. The animations and designs are just excellent, by the way.
And sure, the controls for possessing objects could've been much better (a mouse would've worked better, or a 'snap-to' system), and the UI could've been more intuitive but the game was fun for as long as it lasted.
Still, some extra levels couldn't have hurt the game, they could've even improved it a bit.
