About Eek! Games and House Party
Eek! Games was founded by artist, musician, comedian, and Indie developer Bobby Ricci in 2015. Bobby is a lifelong fan of comedic adventure style games such as Leisure Suit Larry and Space Quest, and set out to marry the old adventure style of these games with a modern and fresh sandbox type experience you’d find in today’s hit games like Grand Theft Auto and The Sims.
Bobby’s founding vision for House Party was to create a comedy adventure with the most absurd characters he could think of as extreme parodies of various personalities that can at times, feel all too familiar.
The player is tasked with navigating these personalities and making real in-game choices that affect everything around you to achieve different endings in the game. Whether you become friends, enemies, lovers, or life coaches to them is completely up to the player!
The game’s early access launch was an overnight sensation, initially selling over 30,000 copies in the first few weeks alone and continuing to 300,000 total sales during the first year. Since the early access launch, the game has now fully matured as an open-ended social simulator mixed with a point-and-click adventure inspired by classic comedies of the ’90s.
Every decision changes your story, and every character has something to reveal. As of August 2019, the game met an exciting milestone, being sold to over half a million players worldwide. Now as of May 2021 the game has sold to over 800,000+ enthralled fans.
In addition to our growing fanbase, over 8,000+ players have written Steam reviews, with over 90% positive recent review scores as of this writing. Learn more on the official website here http://www.housepartygame.com
