Something Strange Is Going Down At The Party!

Ready for another taste of what’s coming in the new expansion?

Yet another appliance seems to have gone haywire at the party. What’s up with that? 

Given how not cool (pun intended) this is, Madison and Ashley head out to figure out what’s wrong with the damn thing.

Once they get there, though, both party hosts get a nasty surprise…

But, wait, did you think that was the only teaser we had for you, brahs?

We also wanted to share a picture from Liz Katz’s social media. Showing off her monday mood, it displays a bathtub equipped with giant tentacles. And, wait, what’s that on the ground beside it? Is that the House Party logo?

Let’s just say there’s something exciting on the way for everyone soon. 😉

Speaking of House Party merch, if it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by the Eek! Games merch store in a while, there’s some awesome new stuff in there to check out!

For example, if you ever wanted to bee as cute as Amy is, you can own your very own version of her classic in-game t-shirt. If you’ve ever wanted to support Patrick’s business endeavors, you can grab a “Brahzzers” shirt as well.

That’s all we’ve got for you this week, partiers, but there’s much more on the way very soon. We hope you enjoyed our latest teaser video and everything else that we shared with you today. Catch you later, doods and lady-doods!

Eek! Games & Collaboration with Our Community

In the gaming community, indie video game companies sometimes find it hard to grow our brands in a market saturated with AAA games. While platforms like Steam, Epic, and GOG allow smaller games access to the market, it’s hard to find a voice in a world overwhelmed by content. However, while AAAs enjoy lots of funding and all the surrounding shenanigans, indie companies can quickly respond to advancements in the gaming community and world at large. Essentially, because indie games often aren’t backed by big investors and corporate entities, they enjoy the freedom of being allowed to take large risks (Wallace, 2022). As an indie gaming company, we at Eek! Games strive to enjoy that freedom as much as possible. We’ve found that collaboration with our community is an excellent way to elevate both ourselves and our fellow creators to new levels. 

We tend to take more of an untraditional approach on taking large risks… Because, you know, the whole sex and nudity thing. And… if you want to read more about our takes on that, feel free to read our blog. Regardless, House Party is unique because of its original combination of explicit content and dynamic story engine, and that is something we’re proud of. 

As the Indie Gaming League argues, it’s entirely possible that the future of video games is collaboration (2020). Namely, it’s cross-game collaboration that allows for indie game companies to reach each other’s platforms and collectively grow. Obviously, there’s a lot that goes into making collaborations work. As with every relationship, there’s a few key things that have to be there for it to be successful. Without fundamental factors like trust and a shared vision (Indie Gaming League, 2020), things just won’t work. That said, when the stars do align, indie game companies may just find their footing in the vast video game market. 

Here at Eek! Games, we collaborate with our community as much as possible. Between guest star appearances in other games, like Frank showing up in Shady Lewd Kart, and the multitude of influencers (like YouTube’s Game Grumps and LetyDoesStuff) we’ve built into House Party, we’re always ready to take on the newest, most wild task. Like the snake in the closet – it’s elusive, but once you get it out, everything falls into place. 

We’ve been collaborating since day one, and some of our best collabs come from within our own awesome community! Our patrons on Patreon, volunteer superusers, and translators have been vital to getting House Party to where it’s at now. We love you all! 

In 2019, we hosted an international music contest where indie artists could submit their songs to be played in the game (EIN Presswire). Texas artist Popskyy’s song “FUNKBOX” won the first place prize, followed up with songs by the talented Fokushi, Treclar, Fletnyx, and Kitanic Demon as the runners up. You can find every one of those songs online, or you could do it the fun way by finding the MP3 player and playing it on Madison’s television. 

More recently, we’ve teamed up with the talented superstar Doja Cat. Famous for songs like “Say So,” “Like That,” and “Juicy,” Doja Cat has made quite the name for herself in pop culture. This made it more exciting when she decided to join our house party and bring her music into our game. As of September, she’s been trying to sneak into Madison’s house via breaking the backyard fence down, and we’re pretty sure she’s offended that you haven’t helped her get in yet. In real life, we helped popular YouTuber Azzyland team up with Doja Cat in a fun playthrough of House Party. The duo share laughs while exploring the game, and it’s certainly an entertaining watch. However, if you watch them play, they do ask why they have to play as a guy. Just know that we’ve since added a playable female character!

As we stumble (Patrick style) into the new year, we’re so excited to continue heightening the collaboration we have with our community. As our platform grows, so too does the amount of opportunities we have to help other indie games, content creators, and artists grow. And while Doja Cat was a big feat, we have more crazy collaborations in the works… So stay tuned. And… Okay, but seriously – have you figured out how to get that snake out of the closet yet?

How Video Game Rating Systems Reflect Broken Societal Norms

Video game rating systems reflect broken societal norms. As our last blog post, “Violence vs. Nudity in Video Games,” hinted at, the current Entertainment Software Rating Board’s (ESRB) ratings are discriminatory towards nudity and sex. Obviously, these ratings reflect cultural beliefs that have long paved the way for us to think of nudity and sex to be a bad thing – except, you know, nudity and sex really aren’t a bad thing, specifically if they’re between consenting adults. 

In the E (Everyone) rating, which includes children of any age, mild cartoon violence, and fantasy violence is acceptable. There’s then a natural progression to E10+ (everyone above the age of 10), which allows for more cartoon violence and fantasy violence and approves of “minimal” suggestive themes. What’s interesting is that violence is allowed, to some extent, for every age group, while “sexual content” isn’t allowed until Mature 17+. 

Yes, that aligns with our society. It’s unacceptable to wear a bikini into a grocery store, and it’s unacceptable to walk into a grocery store with a blood-soaked machete. However, one of those things is a lot more dangerous and threatening than the other, and everyone knows what we’re talking about… the bikini. At least, when considering how video games are rated and incorporated by streaming platforms and game distributors, that seems to be the logic. This is where our core argument lies: it doesn’t make sense that nudity and sex, in many cases, are considered to be worse than brutal, unrelenting, and graphic violence. 

American society is hard-wired to think this way. Let’s break it down a bit. In 2021, Texas legalized open carrying and concealment of handguns, barring some restrictions. Also, in Texas, as of 2021, a first-time conviction for solicitation of sex work could result in up to two years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000 (Davis, 2021). Obviously, this is a video game company; we don’t really care if you want to carry a gun with you wherever you go – that’s up to you and your state laws, friends. However, there is something deeply hypocritical about accepting weapons that could potentially hurt someone being toted around freely and the societal disdain for two consenting adults to exchange money for sex. 

Guns (well, actually, violence) and sex (work) both track back for as long as humans have. One of the favored pastimes of Ancient Romans was watching gladiators fight to their deaths against each other (Ancient roman gladiators, 2018). Who doesn’t love a violent, gory fight where someone ends up dead… right? Actually, yeah, although American culture doesn’t quite have that same mindset today, we do still love violent media, as seen in the wild success of every single Quinten Tarantino movie and the entire Modern Warfare game series. 

Likewise, back in Pompeii, before Mount Vesuvius erupted and decimated the entire city, sex work was accepted as commonplace (The brothels of Pompeii, 2020). “Brothels had no stigma within the city,” as they offered services seen as similar to normal shops (The brothels of Pompeii, 2020). Basically – people have enjoyed violence and sex for years, so why is it that today, we find one of those things acceptable and the other unacceptable?

We’re not making any swooping statements about gun rights, or sex work, or anything like that. We’re saying it’s crazy that our society accepts violence openly and shies away from sex like the plague. So, although the ESRB says our base game has a mature rating (which is a discussion in itself; why is graphic violence rated for younger audiences than graphic nudity?), platforms like Twitch are unwilling to allow House Party streams because of the sexual content… Even though it’s consensual… And censored… And pretty much nonviolent… You get our point. 

On the same note, Twitch allows for games like Call of Duty II on their platform. This game, rated T (Teen), features a D-Day Invasion mission where players must storm the Normandy beaches and get to witness stabbings, bludgeonings, people getting shot, and people burning alive (Wallin, 2022). Would we play it? Sure. Would we watch someone play it? Sure. We love to game, which means we’d also play and watch a game like House Party, which doesn’t contain gory violence but does have some censored genitals and consensual, censored sex scenes and therefore isn’t allowed. It just does not make sense; and quite frankly, we’re sick of it.

Eek! Games is determined to change the narrative around sex and nudity in video games. House Party is a player-choice game that will make you laugh. While, yes, there are moments of sex and nudity, there are far more moments of debaucherous shenanigans, like sneaking Doja Cat into the party, breaking into the safe in Madison’s closet, and figuring out how to drink alcohol without Frank seeing. 

It’s an adventure comedy game where you can live out the best night of your life again and again. Now, that’s enough heavy societal commentary for one blog post. Eek! Games, checking out. 

You can buy House Party on Steam, Epic Games, and GOG

A lot of you doods have been asking us about Office Party lately, and we’re happy to say that we are still working on it alongside House Party!


Right now, Office Party still is in very early development. We are currently focused on planning and conceptualizing the game, while laying out the basic framework for gameplay features we would like to add. We’ve learned a lot throughout these past years of developing House Party, about what everyone likes and dislikes and what features many of you would like to see, and we are trying to take our time to carefully compile a detailed plan of everything Office Party should be before we move forward fully with dedicated development.


With that said, it will be a while before you see any sort of official screenshots, teaser videos, or playable demos of Office Party. We have a long journey ahead, but we are excited to build an exciting new game for everyone that will be even bigger and more dynamic than House Party!



If you would like to support our development or view early not-fit-for-public-consumption in-progress development screenshots, we will be posting updates every so often on our Patreon. You can visit it here. The lowest monthly tier will unlock many of our early screenshots, while our higher-level tiers will provide greater benefits (such as access to polls and exclusive early testing builds) further down the road.


What we have shared and will be sharing about Office Party privately on Patreon:

  • Very early proof-of-concept and in-progress art screenshots
  • Early information on any House Party characters you might see returning in Office Party (like Madison, pictured above)
  • Early discussions about features, characters, items, and locations that will be coming to Office Party
  • Backstage Q&As with Bobby (House Party’s Creator) and other members of our development team
  • Exclusive Polls for High-Tier Patrons deciding on certain things that will be coming to the game
  • And much more…

It’s a blast bringing new, real-world personalities and audiences to our game, and working with the Game Grumps, LetyDoesStuff, and Doja Cat have all been incredible experiences.

More info on this awesome upcoming guest is coming soon, and their exciting DLC will take us back to the edgy roots House Party is known for! We’re stoked to work alongside a partner who has played (and loves) House Party and wants to explore making adult content with us. Get hyped, doods: Our next DLC will be packed with some of our wildest explicit scenes yet!


And just because we’re doing these awesome guest partnerships doesn’t mean we aren’t keeping in mind possibilities for Original Story Expansion Packs in the future, too! We’ve gotten some really fun player suggestions so far about different areas of the original partier backstories we could explore further in the future.
