What was that? You awaken to find your once quiet house is full of noisy party guests! Can't a ghost haunt in peace?

Possess items around the house and scare everyone out! The more you scare, the more powerful you become. Don't frighten them too much though, they might freak out and do something stupid...



Some of the achievements don't work. I certainly got all the lights swinging at once, and it didn't get me that. And based on the title "shoot for the moon", I'm guessing that's get rid of them without a single suicide, and I did that once, and it didn't work. I played this game last halloween and did it in less than 10 minutes but I hadn't generated this account with newgrounds at that time, I played it on armorgames. I wonder if I need to do it in under 10 minutes to get the secret achievement then. Pity, since I did that exactly already.

This game needs an update. There needs to be 1: a possibility of killing EVERYONE. There are certain individuals who are absolutely recalcitrant about surviving. You can chase them in maximum panic mode from the very top and they'll never jump - and after a point, they'll REFUSE to go up to the top floors in any case. 2. a possibility of possessing the PEOPLE. 3. SCARIER actions. Seriously. Not creative enough. I want to be able to possess a person and have him rip his own head off and for little hands to reach out his eye sockets and turn into little chainsaws or something. You know, something that really would scare the shit out of someone. 4. These people, they have very strange priorities about what they call scary. Seriously, bats coming out of the chest in the attic is terrifying level 3, and scare them super much, but the walking flying table with the animated walking legs is only level 2? What's wrong with these people? If I was in a room and the kitchen table started walking around like an animal and levitating, I would find that way scarier than bats coming out of a dusty old chest. God, and these people are often so oblivious, I'm like having a bottle of shampoo or something in the bathroom levitate right in front of this blasted kid's face, with the hand coming out of it over and over again, and he's just distantly staring forward with a dumb happy look on his face. Dum de dum, oh, nothing interesting in THIS direction, I think I'll turn around now.

ALSO people often commit suicide when there are NO WINDOWS. They just take a dive into the air in the middle of the BATHROOM and disappear. Also, I've seen them jump to their deaths when they weren't even at the maximum panic level - and also walk out of the front of the house when they weren't scared at ALL. Just casually walk away and the counter of the number of people goes down by 1. But it's such a good IDEA for a game. That's why it needs to be done better.

Also the music is great. Canabalt. No time to explain. And this. Among the best and best fitting Indy game music ever.

i tried to kill everybody but it's hard ahaha :P i really liked, the ghost looks really sad tho :c i love the animaton and the artstyle, and there's so many objects you can possess! i love it xD

Great game. One woman didin't even try to go out, she was just running...And then she commited suicide. Nice one.

So 10 people die in this house... FOR SALE!*

*Price lowered

How does a 1/3 count as a C when I've seen other people kill 2 and get an A? I love this game and all the zany stuff you can do to scare the people. There need to be more games kinda like this. But to add variety to it, maybe make separate homes with a different variety of objects to possess. Otherwise great game.
