House Party is Receiving Slight Price Increase on January 6th in Preparation for their Final Stages of Development
In addition to all the features, they’ve added in the past year, and House Party still has a ton of new features making its way to the game before it releases out of Early Access in 2020. In the coming months, players can look forward to a number of new things such as a new female playable character, a fine-tuning of the intimacy animations, and Vickie Vixen’s unforgettable finale. Not to mention, the Game Grump’s story will be landing very soon, more details to come in a follow-up release.
Bobby Ricci, Founder, and CEO of Eek! Games, says;
“As for what’s left; after the Game Grumps are added, we still have stories coming for Derek, Frank, and Vickie’s final “ending,” and then we will be releasing a female POV playthrough style, that will offer up most of the same quests, but with various twists and extra content that can only be experienced this way. We’ll also be combing over all of the existing content and making sure we tie everything together in a cohesive way creating a nice sense of fluidity with the player’s choices.
House Party has to climax at some point, and your support has made it possible for our game to have the biggest explosive finale. And after HP has left EA behind, we’ll continue to support it while we begin working on our next venture–something we’re excited to talk more about, but only when the time is right.”

About Eek! Games!
Eek! Games, based out of Oregon, was founded by programmer Bobby Ricci back in 2015. Bobby is a longtime fan of comedic adventure style games such as; Leisure Suit Larry and Space Quest. Initially, he wrote a unique 3D “Character Engine” and had planned to sell it as an asset. Instead, the game House Party launched in steam early access back in June 2017. Bobby’s founding vision was to create the most absurd characters he could think of as extreme parodies of various personalities.
The game’s early access launch was an overnight sensation, selling over 30,000 copies in the first few weeks alone and continued 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.
