Warning: There are spooky elements and creepy critters in this limited-time mini-update. If that makes the party too scary, read the instructions at the end of this post on how to not play the event and enjoy the original version of the game.
Happy Halloween, partiers!
The house looks a little different this Halloween, and so do some of your fellow partygoers!
Madison’s decked the place out with a few chilling decorations, and some of the more Halloween-minded guests have put on a sinister special accessory to celebrate. Be sure to fully explore the party, as you’ll encounter spine-chilling seasonal decor and a petrifying new limited-time cosmetic item!
This mini-update comes as a free temporary patch that’s available to all Steam players. The eerie visuals will revert back to normal approximately two weeks after Halloween, so enjoy them while you can!
Not in a Halloween mood? Are the new decorations too harrowing? To swap back to the regular base version of the game, go to the Properties for House Party in Steam, select “Betas”, and then choose either the “1.0.3” or “testing” beta branches to play the regular version! Feel free to do this at any time to get rid of the spooky seasonal appearance!
Note: At this time, the seasonal accessory and household decorations will be visible in all custom stories. To revert to the normal world aesthetics, please swap to the “1.0.3” or “testing” beta branches which host the regular version of the game.
