About This Game

Stay out of the House is a realistic serial killer escape sim. You've been kidnapped and held captive in a cannibal butcher's house. And it's only a matter of time until you're dinner.

Escape however you can. The house is a living sandbox with multiple possibilities - will you rescue the other victims or just save yourself? Will you hide in the shadows and slip away undetected or turn the tables, using the butcher's own traps against him? The choices are yours and the AI will react to them dynamically.

The smack of a hammer... your head lands hard on the dirty linoleum floor... a maniac drags you up the stairs and cages you like an animal! You have three days until the reckoning...

Welcome to the home of THE BUTCHER. Welcome to YOUR new home. Why are you here? Why has this mad man chosen you, and what are his plans for you? How will you escape? Can you even escape? All of these questions have answers, but can you seek them out? Do you want to? If only you’d heeded their warning to STAY OUT OF THE HOUSE.

  • Avoid THE BUTCHER'S cruel hammer or wind up right back in your CAGE! And you only have so much time left to escape...
  • Stay quiet and stay out of sight. He can hear you, and he IS listening.
  • Avoid his traps as you explore; he’s not about to let his newest houseguest leave so soon.
  • There are plenty of unique tools and items around them house to aid in your escape. You’ll need your wits to find the best path out.
  • Temper his SICK LUST FOR BLOOD with your .38 caliber revolver (if you can find it!)
  • Search for clues as you explore if you truly want answers. Perhaps you’ll find more than you bargained for…
