Remember all those ridiculous teen sex comedies from back in the day that used to be really popular? The Animal Houses, the Old-Schools, the Porky’s and the Van Wilders? Well, in our more politically correct society these movies have taken a backseat because raunchiness, comedy, and laughs centering around sex and nudity are forbidden in this day and age. However, Eek! Games is taking it back old-school by paying homage to the legacy games that helped put sex comedies on the map in the world of interactive entertainment, such as Leisure Suit Larry and Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist.
The big difference between House Party and the other games is that Eek! Games’ title doesn’t just tease and tantalize you with sex jokes, it actually delivers on the goods… and in big ways. The Steam Early Access trailer basically shows you just about everything you need to know about the game. You can check it out below.
The game is kind of a miscellaneous-style adventure game where you walk around, talk to the other NPCs, attempt to get laid, watch some sloppy physics-based fights take place, and basically partake in a series of misadventures.
The goal of the game is to waltz through the door of a house and pretend to be a smooth operator. The objective is to complete a series of social puzzles in order to achieve whatever it is you’re there to do, whether that be humiliating another character, taking naughty photos of the guests, or attempting to achieve a happy ending.
The most surprising thing to me about the game is the fact that the animations and cloth physics on the characters are top notch. I wasn’t expecting such high-quality boob physics.
At present, the Early Access version features tons of stories and different outcomes, but the developers want to further explore more stories and more endings. Additionally, they plan on releasing tools so that players will be able to create their own custom scenarios.
I’m surprised that Valve let House Party onto the Steam store uncensored, but it looks like we’re treading brave new ground on the digital storefront.
You can pick up Eek! Games’ title from over on the Steam store for $14.99. Also, I can’t stop thinking about Eek! The Cat every time I see the studio’s name.
