From Press Release:
Los Angeles, CA, USA – June 22nd, 2022 – Award-winning developer Eek! Games is thrilled to announce today that after five years of development, its hysterical, story-rich 3D adult comedy adventure game, House Party, will leave Steam Early Access on July 15th. What began as one man’s passion project has grown to a game known around the world for its wacky humor, surprising depth, and celebrity guests such as content creator LetyDoesStuff, YouTube legends the Game Grumps and, when her DLC launches in the fall, global entertainment superstar Doja Cat.
Inspired by classic adventure style comedy games of the 80’s and 90’s like Leisure Suit Larry, and timeless fan favorites like American Pie, House Party recreates the party experience with a double-shot of the unexpected for good measure. With a crate of hundreds of branching narratives to crack open, the story is a blank canvas for meaningful player choices and every play-through in the party sandbox means new people to meet and new tasks to complete. Endless opportunities for drama, hilarity, and absurdness await with over 15 fully-voiced guests who react to players’ every remark or action. Guests include the unofficial face of the game, Frank; an imposing straight-edge muscle-head guarding the alcohol who greets guests he hasn’t tried to fight yet with a “How’s it going dude?”, and Madison; the embattled party host who has lost her phone somewhere in the craziness of the event while trying to pull a party-stopping prank on her younger sister Ashley.
Joining House Party’s growing guest list in 2022 will be Grammy-award winning artist Doja Cat, who will be making her entrance in the fall of this year with an expansive DLC storyline voiced directly by Doja Cat herself with a house playlist that includes some Doja Cat favorites. The Eek! Games team has worked closely with Doja Cat to create hand-picked outfits and approve her in-game reactions accuracy. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to party with Doja Cat, now’s your chance to see for yourself!
As part of the official launch, Eek! Games will update the game with a playable female protagonist, allowing players to party as a female for the first time. With the addition of the female playable character, the protagonist will now be able to pursue all romantic relationship choices (gay, bisexual, and lesbian) in House Party!
