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.
