The House is back online, served up directly from the JIG servers with Sinthai's kind permission!
This is Heka scary!!
as it game, it's pretty lousy. it's not really a "game" you just click on one of the two-three things you can click on over and over again until events happen. it's not fun whatsoever in that sense.
as scares, it does pretty well, though it does it using a lot of "cheese" tactics. (sudden flash accompanied by loud music). Cheese tactics are very effective, but "cheesy" in that it's very easy to make anything scary like that. (Ie just try sneaking up on someone, jumping out at them and yelling at the top of your lungs. You'll freak them out.)
I disagree, ss.
While it may be easy to create "cheese" as you say, or a cheap thrill, this piece is much more than that.
It is not easy to create an interactive narrative that evokes the emotions of tension and suspense as masterfully as Sinthai has done with The House. It is a brilliant work of art, and you've missed the point.
HOLY CRAP!!! the first room scarred the crap out of me, i'm affraid to go on to the next. This was teh first of oen of those things, that actually made me make nosie when it happened.
finally your 'house' is online again!
yeehaa...now i can scare the shiat outta my officemates!
uhm... i got to the first screen... and then i got to scared and had to close it.
Loved it. It was very scary and thank you for that. =)
Good game, pretty creepy feel but some of the hilarious engrish detracts from the mood. I find it pretty hard to feel deeply caught up in the atmosphere reading sentences like "I'm so lucky to be you wife." ;)
we are up to the bathroom and just saw a shadow in the window. now i'm too scared!!!! what do we do next???
how do u get past the second room?
this was really scary the first time i played because iwas homa along,at night with the sound really loud. thanks 4 the scare jay!
This game was so freaky when things popped out my friend and I jumped and screamed for about a minute but the freakiest thing was when the little girl suddenly popped out of the blood in the bathtub and when she came towards us. It was really freaky my friend and I almost pee our pants.
It was an okay game, kinda clique though, and the lady looks to much like the sadako ( or in america, samara) from the ring.
Also, not much to do, except click things over and over and over.
and I agree with the gore part. she dishes out the PERFECT amount.
but a little TOO much distruction, and not enough content in each room, except the bathroom. If she didn't include the room names, I wouldv'e thought the rooms were only little empty apartments with a few peices of random furnature in them.
overall, I'll give it a 6.5 out of 10.
it gave me a scare in a few of the rooms, but this game hasn't reached it's full potential. stick in more things to do
(not to mention, MAKE IT HARDER), and clarify the story line, it would be an AWESOME GAME.
In my next post, I will write a walkthrough.
ive played it and i wanna ask you something...who killed the family?
for kickable puppy just wanna inform u that the maker for this site (or games) just 25 years old...What could u expect???Great games like FF or MGS??
Personally, the house kinda scared...and the story line has been made blur maybe for reason that we could assume and imagine the motivation the woman killed the entire family..
Good job Jay
Now...this got me scared...I am SO going to have nightmares! Yikes! I must've got to the second room then stopped. I'm such a wimp! Ha. It reminds me of 'The Ugly'. It's a game I played ever ago. But yeah. This freaked me out. Don't think I'm ever going to look at my computer the same again...o_o
Ummm...why would someone actually have a prescription for poison that said "take two tablets daily"?
The Best game .
Ugh, this game was freaky..
When the guy got shot in the forehead, I couldn't believe how high I jumped :D
Oh, and by the way Jay, I just discovered your site a week back and I've been checking in at least once a day! Great job finding all of these games.. I definately look forward to my dose of casual gaming each day :)
Cheers, Joel! That's always nice to hear! =D
Wow this is a scary game. after the very first room i turned the sound off!!! i was freaked out. but its a great game!!!
This is sooooo great game!!! :D First i almost died 'cause i laughed so much when the basketball exploded and then.. Head falled down in front of the screen!!! I stopped laughing immediately. I was scared, but i said to myself:"This haunts u every night, if u now stop palying." And.. I played it to the end!! And i didn't skip any room!! ^___^
But, i didn't watch what happened in the bathroom. XD
I came back when my fear has dissappeared, and i wathced the bathroom. x)
Jay... How u can find all these great games???
Hello the game isnt working for i keep clicking around but its not working.
Hi melodie, I just tried and it's working fine. Maybe the site that hosts the game was down for a moment when you tried? Can you try again? Sometimes that happens on the Web. Cheers!
it was incredible for me the first time ı have seen the house...
it is an interesting house :D
I knew this game since 2 years ago (when the domain was still in sinthaistudio.com)
I think the maker (Sinthai) didn't expect this to be a "game", but merely a horror interactive,, and he was doing it in his free time. But it's getting huge and famous ^^
The main star in this story is a creepy-lady, many of you thought it somewhat reminds you to Sadako from The Ring. But one to note is that the maker was an Asian, and a creepy lady with long hair had always been a wellknown typical "ghost" in Asian countries. Not only Japan (as the original Ringu), but also Thailand, Indonesia, China, etc etc. So this isn't a rip-off,, it was a common expression.
I can only get to the kitchen and then i get stuck PLEASE help
I was so scared that I couldn't finish it........
try Exmortis thats scarier i think
Please.........what happens in the corridor, cant find anything but a note
played this in work and we think we scared the customers more than we were scared! don't think they expected to walk into screams!!!
ok, if this scared you....
you need to play exmortis because it's really scary and gory. search it on jayisgames, it scared me.
sorry ashley, didn't mean to double post. it is a lot scarier.
ok, sorry to post a lot, but here are some scary games.
now, to get your mind off of gore, here are some happy games....
i am posting way too much. they are empty. i am sorry. they were exmortis, exmortis 2, nfh propaganda.
yo scariest game ever invented but copied the ring so i kinda knew what was gonna happen anyway cool game i wanna play your next game see ya anyway bye
I can't get it to work! When it starts in the first room I can't go any further, there is a picture and a basketball that I can click but it doesn't take me anywhere, can anyone tell me if I'm not doing something correctly?
Keep clicking on what you can. It takes a few clicks to get to the next room, if you dare.
I loved this game.... scary!
everything was just creepy..it's really a TRUE scary game!
The solution of the mystery is that
the mother is the murderer
. she was diagnosed with cancer. I still remember her day to go for her cancer treatment on
This game is simple, it always follows a trend of starting with
clicking 2 things alternately
, then the story will goes on...until u reached the last..
1st room: click on the
2nd room: click on the
notes on the mirror
flush the toilet bowl
3rd room: click on the
4th room: click on the
picture on the wall
turn on the lights
pick up the notes on the floor
, then you will understand the whole picture.
one more thing..
is a good sign for you to get ready for the scary scene and also to the next level/ room.
it was alright XD!
AAAAAAAA IS VERY SCARY in first room i not dare to play it!!!!
Really nice. Only a few parts made me utter a sound, but nothing major really.
The head and hand.
Very scary i very like it
it is super cool.. rather creepy.. but unresistable to say..
must watch again!
Thats very scary game! I ask too, how kill the family? I like this game, best what I ever play :D More scary games!! I love them!! :D I am not good speak englis, but I hope you can read my message.
From: Krista, and I am from Finland and I live Finland :D
i gotta admit, scary scary scary scary game.
The ball exploding was kinda scary, and so was the bathroom, and also when the lights go on and the woman is just right there. But the head falling down scared me at first, but then I fell to the floor laughing.
For those who haven't played the game yet, to get through the game, you have to get ready for whats coming up. And be prepared for sudden movement and blowing up/cracking open things. That is all you ever actually see, but the graphics make a scary sideshow too.
I actually couldn't make it past the bathroom lol... because
the head coming out of the tub
reminded me too much of the ring and I totally freaked out, it said i could go onto room 3 but i just couldnt lol...I scare very easily...i cant believe i made it through Exmortis and Exmortis 2!
hello, i never trust ghost near me.....but i want to know more than other....
Im only 8 years old and I got through the whole thing!!!
Grrr........I know this game for a year already but still up to room3 only.....too scary that I can't even move further!!!!
Excellent, j'ai adoré ce jeu. J'avai l'impression de me retrouver face à un Silent Hill...
Uh, freaky! I turned my speakers down as low as they would go and still the heartbeat freaked me out. I had to turn them off all together! When the lady's sillhoette appeared in the bathroom I got the hell out of there!
I watched this at home, when i was alone (but during broad daylight) without sound, and i got up to the second room (bathroom) and i got totally freaked and stopped watching...
THEN, i watched it with my friends at the library with no sound and it actually turned out really FUNNY!! we were laughing all the way through!! But some of my friends were hiding behind their wallets etc!!
The things actually look pretty fake =_= but it was good anyways!!! i liked it!!! haha..i wanna watch it again!!! =)
too scary too creepy . i don't think i will be able to go sleep easily tonight
n the sound and the picture make me scare...
i really didn't get scared that much.. But when that hallway and picture room came i scared myself and almost had a heart attack... =.=
it really freaked me out!! oooh...scary ....this really gave me a creepy moment!!!
oh crap!!!!!!!!!! this really is fraking genious!
pak the hell! I'm watching it here at the office, well lighted place yet the background music and appearing of several figures really freak me out. I can't finish the bathroom area coz by boyfriend seems too concerned that I may not get into sleep at night if I'll continue. Well, I told him to help me with this freaking game, I wanna finished it!
Really cool! keep it up jay. /no1
Very ashamed to admit I didnt make it past the 3rd room... hah, it was pretty freaky.
Ha ha ha...i like it! very cool...
Hmmmmm... maybe I am just an old fart or maybe I just do not scare well anymore... Maybe my mind is far scarier with what I can imagine - dark place :).
The fast flashes of stuff were good but it was like a game of "think fast" with dead things.
Takes too much to scare me now I fear. I love horror and this was one of the better point and clicks.
But I guess when you actually HAVE to assist with morgue runs at age 20 and handled a dead body at age 19, watched a guy almost die due to a drug overdose, the blood and crap, the real world is far worse than someone's imagination. My imagination is a scary place, maybe why it takes so much to frighten me now.
I am the one who goes through haunted houses for the laughs - the good ones. I also tell employees they have to work harder and get more subtle. Subtley scares far worse than overt gore.
Good game, fast stuff happens, great for a fast thrill but sadly, this was also predictable.
Wow, that was awesome! Can anyone tell me any games like that - PLEASE!!!
Im to scared to try it but my classmte likes it so i tried it. ELISHE TONTO!!!
Yes yes I liked this one. Thanx 4 the time taken to make it worked 4 me!
I'm young and I finished the game. With volume too. It's so cool. :D
OMG This game scares the pants out of me, yet it makes me laugh at the same time. It was really fun when I played it with my friends at school. Haha, we kept screaming and the teacher kept looking at us funny x]
not bad...beautiful sound and image, but I don't like!!!!
Is it vere dread.ful?
My land to taiwan.
it didn't really feel like a game. more like just repeated clicking on stuff until boo!
WHAT A GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MAKES ME SCREAM ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!
yes very terrible
I was reminded strongly of The Ring and Samara(sp?) there at the end. I only jumped at the beginning and the end. Very freaky game.
i didnt have my speakers up too loud...but it did kinda scare me, but not really. i tried to do this "house" thing with my cousin, but he got to scared by just looking at the house. (we didnt even start the house)
XD I was pretty entertained by this... AFTER I completed it. The first one or two times, the furthest I got was clearing the 1st Room.
To this day, I still laugh at that head...
'Cause my friends and I began trying to take screenshots of it for kicks!
In the 2nd Room...
The head didn't scare me... The hand didn't scare me... But by golly, that silhouette of the mom creeped me out.
In the 3rd Room...
Didn't scare me... The delivery wasn't as outta nowhere as the 1st Room. Body fell down too slow, y'see? I did get a tad carried away playing with the dangling doll and the body once it was done, though~
In the 4th Room...
Spooky, but not scary at all. Come on, when the eyes began following the mouse, it was a li'l cheesy. If I could toss in a surprise, I'd jump if I clicked on the picture, only to see that it's suddenly pointing a gun at me. Brr... Shooting the dude didn't wow me.
In the 5th and Final Room...
I've never seen the Ring before. Hallways creep me out because you can only go forward and back. Lightswitches scare me because who knows WHAT will appear when you turn one on. This hallway spooked me to pieces. The final image burned into my mind... But the scream made me laugh so hard at how goofy it sounded~
Overall, I give props on delivery. They give you plenty of foreshadowing of what's going to happen, and yet it happens anyway. You can only advance the story by clicking and once you get that final click for each room--BAM!! The atmosphere was eerie, thanks to the sound effects and visuals. The blood made me laugh at how "unrealistic" it was, but the amount was enough to provide the scare-factor. I'm not a horror fan, but this was a winner with me. The Engrish is adorable~
I am NEVER playing that game again till the end of TIME.
I woulden't even look at it.:( (shivering).
99 rooms? I saw only 5 there. The last room took me a while to finish. And...the pic of a man, when his eyes were blooding...it's scary!!! Then the last image of a ghost woman... Her big open mouth...it's frightening! My sis ran screaming after seeing the first scene! But I reckon it's a good game :P
I expected to be spooked readng all of the comments, but I didn't find it scary at all. Still, pretty neat. I don't regret taking the time to finish.
it is very exciting.ı thank özgür.because he said this site.will be difrent topics?it was perfect
omg too scary couldn't get past the
kids head falling
im still shaking hard to type
I'm stay in thailand. I like this game.
I then decided not to go to the last room... It was too scary LOLZ.
wooow... that was scary... we'll recomend it to our friends!! WE REALLY LOVE IT! We'll devinately watch it again later!!! hopefully you make another game with scarier stuff. We'll be WAITING FROM YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG!! that was sooooo scary!! i had to cover up some of the screen with some paper, especially in the bathroom.
In the first room...
the picture bursts, i was playing it at school and my frend and i screamed!!! and then when the ball explodes we were like NOOOO and we got told off!!! eeeek but we had to play it about six times before i was brave enuff to look at the head falling, and his expression woz like omg!!! and yhoo know that there summin weird going on with the mum cuz the drawing of her is really weird. the picture is obviously done by a child but a child would NEVER draw their mother like that so why did the child draw his mother liike that? hmmmm....
In the second room...
I kept closing the lid of my laptop!!! the notes are sooo scary. and when the toilet leeks blood it was kinda stupid but sill creepy. And the poison woz a bit confusing, did she poison herself or drown? cz she comes out of the bath. nyway the bit where her shadow is at the window really freaked me out. but i missed the hand cuz i had covvered the screen up with paper!!
In the third room...
i hardly saw this room cuz my frend and i kept lookin away!! but the calender is weird, cancer treatment? it woz definately the mums treatment cuz in the bathroom the kids notes say she is very sick.
i g2g cuz my mum is here
Omg my brother made me play ''The house'' and i got so scared at the end i screamed.That was to scary.But them everyone laughed at me.Oh well.
how do I get passed the hall??!!!
OMG! that was freaky, and it will give me nightmares for a month. now I'm afraid to walk in the hallway alone at night in my own house x__________x But anyways, this game's awesome, eventhough it scares me poopless. lol.
its was ok... but not scary..just a little jumpy... and weird... just keep clicking on the things over and over again until somthing appears...T.T
Man, way too scary but had to see it through. Try turning off the sound and its not AS bad.
very very good perfect
The last room scared the livings out of me!
is that game have HTML tag??
i want to keep it into my Blog..
i love that game!
the best scare ^^
all the animations are all predictable and comes so late that I become bored sometimes.
it has nothing to do with scaring
