My best friend and I were playing this, and after I saw the little boy's face, I screamed at the top of my lungs!
p.s. I don't believe anybody who says the game was not scary!
That was terrifying.
Definitely not something to play alone at 3 am.
I found "The House" quite boring.
Though, I played it early morning in a light room and not with loads of sound.
But, then again, if I turned up the sound it would be the volume that scared me and not the sound itself. Or, well..
Don't really think I'd be more scared then either.
This really creeped the hell out of me! It's really amazing. I love it. (:
hahaha this game isnt freaky its hilarious i was laughing the entire time
whoa!!!!! the head got me there... scarier than hotel 626... so gory.... whoa...
i didnt get it...
it looked scarey...but i didnt know how to like move around the house..
it wouldnt let me or soomthing like that..
Kind of a weird game, but it wasnt bad. A few parts made me jump, but I enjoyed it. Thanks.
I used to play this game all the time when I was 12 or 13, it's good for killing time, and I can see how someone would think it's scary, but after the five millionth time, you just sit there laughing.
I liked the game, until the head fell down! lol i jumped so high my cat ran away and i almost dropped my computer! i abruptly closed the window. lol good job! you scared the snot out of me! (and from what i'm reading, everyone else) =P
if u are in the kitchen,open the microwave and u will see a hat inside.
bathroom with a bathtub and toilet in which all the water has been replaced by blood...
I need help. How do I leave the dining room? I clicked everything.
Dude, this scared the heck out of me! I wanted to stop because it was scary, but I was too into the game.
Hey... I dont see how you guys were really that freakin scared by this?
I mean yea it's one of those "jump out at you" games.... But it's really not that scary because it's like you KNOW something is about to happen every time.. There's no real anticipation... Now Exmortis... THAT game is freaky.. I keep having to look over my shoulder at every sound i hear behind me...
Not scream worthy scary- But then again I just finished this right now, in the middle of the afternoon, with the lights streaming in through the window and clutching my dog to my chest for dear life XD It definitely makes your skin crawl; The atmosphere, the repetitive music (If you can call it that. I dunno about you but in the Living room when that creepy music from the intro came on I was just filled with dread) the storyline, however simple. An interesting game even if somewhat repetitive. You start expecting things after a while.
That said, I think this would have been a better game over all if there were more things to click- Things that you give you more of a sense of what's going on story wise. The limited item thing has its effect and I think it actually works nicely with the game- You don't know what to do except go back and click on things you've already looked at three or four times, pixel hunting for other stuff, and then BAM! something happens the third time you look at the picture or whatever. It fits with the atmosphere and adds to the tension. The only downside is that after the third or fourth scene it gets a bit old. Second room was by far the scariest XD After I saw the shadow at the window I literally got up and went to go get my dog. There was no way I was sitting through the rest alone!
Wow. Really scary!! I'm only ten!
a little bit make me afraid, but not too, cause i like horror. If i don't like horror, maybe i will be very afraid then die in front of my computer cause this game. Good job SHINTAI production!
Wow. So lame. Completely predictable. Not a game at all.
when u are inside the kitchen,
click the doll thrice,and the front entrance kitchen ,the mom(ghost)will peep at u,then there is a note click a few and click the ceiling,then it will pop out a girl hanging down with the hair covering her face
This game is awesome!!!
There should be 'The House 2'.
That would be so fun!!!
I can't leave the 1st room, I'm far too freaked out! :D i love it!!
well... this game is good, i play before a really scary game, it's more scary that this game. I love all that be about kill, death, scary or dark...
GOOD GAME, it`s between the bettters that i was play.
PD: im spanish, im not really good in english... bye
A word to the wise---
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PLAY THIS GAME AT MIDNIGHT, IN A DARK ROOM, WHILE THERE IS A THUNDERSTORM OUTSIDE!!!!!
It's going to be a long, LONG time before I can sleep with the lights off again!
I was playing this with my sister, we we're only in the first room then we saw something fall from the ceiling, we panicked like crazy :)). The end with the lady and all was just plain freaky. The timing of the game is good coz you get nervous and more nervous and BOOM something comes out of no where. :)) LOVE IT.
Holy monkeys! This game freaked me out soooo bad! I can't get past the bathroom though. I saw the sillouette of the girl, and the heartbeat thingy started but I still can't get past it :( Help me!
I'm probably going to get in trouble for this, but I was laughing. I've already played this a few years ago on Albino Black Sheep, so I remembered what happened. I didn't play with the sound on either time because I'm such a sissy about noises. (I'm really sensitive about sounds.)
I was goading them all on as I clicked things over and over again.
It was scary, yes. But it was ALL jump-scares. And the lack of any type of plot was irritating. I play a game because I want a story, not a click-fest with creepy gore and sudden BOO!s.
Playing Yakkity Sax over any game diffuses all the terror.
Whoever created this game is a genius.
Really scared the heck out of me.
Even though it's just 5 pm, wow, this game totally scared me.
I was eating my ice cream and clicking those things in the game and then, bam, out of nowhere something pops out. Also I was wearing headphones and my volume was about 95. I was so shocked.
Anyway, overall amazing game even though it scared the heck out of me.
wow, that was a very interesting game, im goin to try this on someone, see what he thinks.
It's freakin awesome!!I LOVE it!
My hands are trembling!!
But who really killed the family?
Was it the mom?
It was a bit creepy.
The girl being hung surprised me.
[Edit: spoiler tags added. -eileen]
this is the SCARIEST game i have EVER played, and i do play a lot of horror games. i love the shivers they send through your spine. it was so eerie that i decided to quit before i even got to the bedroom. i shouldn't have read your guys' comments. i think i'll wait 'till im older to finish this game...
i like more games like this!!!!

I LOVE IT!
-my scream after going through the dining room
That was fun game,but i wish it were longer.
This is so scary I nearly had a heart attack! My brother is going to have nightmares for years (100 to be precise).
This is so scary, the girl at the end comes up to you and screams.
This is spoiler for level one:
Can't be bothered to do this.
sick game scared the living heck outta me really scary liked the things that changed in the picture the woman is creepy nearly fell backwards outta my chair
good game all in all though
i played this for 6-7 times already... its boring for me now...
my sister and her friends play the house with me
and sometimes i played this with my aunty
1st time i tried its very scary... but i really know what to click here
This game is quite famous at my school.
I remember playing this when my friend came over to my house. We were soo scared, we covered our face with a pillow and blankets, and my little sister is MUCH braver than us. hahaha
When the ghost peeked on the kitchen door, i actually laughed.
Then we got freaked out and played Garfield's Scary Scavenger Hunt. LOL.
No matter how many times i played it, the
popping hand on the bathroom
always makes me jump.
Great game, I appreciate Sinthai for making this game.
Ha ha! That was the funniest game I have ever played! I'm not joking!
All the comments I read were like 'omg, you are disturbed' 'i wrecked my pants playing this', stuff like that, but it wasn't scary at all! I laughed at it- and I'm such a coward I screamed at Being One- Bloodbath!
That is so weird... but seriously, this game is not scary at all...
It's not scary at all. A little bit freaky, that's what I think.
omg. I got to the first room, heard the little kid laughing, and quit. CREEPY. and, im in a freakin basement w/ the lights off.
Definitely one of the scariest games i have ever played. Almost everything made me jump of my chair. So in conclusion: i loved it! XD
I need help i've gotten to the kitchen and i have a knife a best qualitry vinigar and a silver butterfly thing I"M STUCK PLEASE HELP
I played this in my house in the middle of the day. I couldn't play it with the sound, and I had to cover my eyes at the last minute. OHHHH MAN.
That freaked me out. OHGAWD. I've never actually been afraid of a game before -- but this one, yeah. It was freaky.
Keep making more :) Your games rock, Jay! :3
I don't get how to go through the corridor, guys. :| we're ( stuck with my friends. xD ) cliff hung on this room. xD WHat, do I just keep clicking on the light switch?!
I've no idea about THE HOUSE... it's suitable to be called as flash slideshow than a game... sorry... but it's my point of view... but for the scary things...yes those are great to freak out the "player" !!!
Your creation is highly recommended for those who wanna examine their hearts... ^_^
well,most of all.... GREAT GOING!!!
Wrote a walkthrough for this game... due to me spending about 15 mins to beat this. Freaked me out the first time... SPOILERS! CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
~The Front Door~
You're in front of the house. Wait until the words go by and the door shakes, then click on "Go inside". You will knock on the door. Soon it will open itself.
~The Dining Room~
Ok, so now you're within the house's dark shadows. In here is a family portrait, a window, and a door that's slightly open. Click on the portrait and leave it three times. That's right; 3! Afterwards, a ball will drop from the ceiling. Click on the ball a few times, then click on the portrait again. *CRASH* OMG! What was that? A ghost of the daughter should appear, sitting at the window... Afterwards, click on the ball a few times and *POP*. Soon you will hear a baby crying, and cover your eyes.. That head goes flying and freaked me out. Whew... but the darkness moved. Let's enter the bathroom.
This will be a nightmare. Look at the mirror. There's a note. Click on it for a better look, then click it a couple times for weird effects. Click on the can of poison on the ground. WHOA! Silhouette of a woman at the fence thing? Maybe its just me. And now you can click on the toilet.. Clicky Clicky Clicky! (Like Mushu from Mulan; "Picky Picky Picky"). You're almost done. The jump scare is a hand popping up. Uh-Oh, heard a crash in the Kitchen, let's move!
This may freak out those of 12 or under. Well, notice the doll moving by itself nearby the staircase? Click on it to have it pop-up. Click it a few times, then the note.. (I think) Then a shadow runs down the hall to your right. Click on the doll, and notice it was hanging? Well, a person will hang from the ceiling. Looks like a kid. Hmmmmm... there was a toddler, a mom, a kid, OH NO! THE DAD! Let's go to the Living Room!
~The Living Room~
Ok, there's a portrait of the dad, a note, and weird hallucinations that happen over-time. You know, clicky clicky clicky. You'll hear a gunshot, and... a weird ghost walks past the screen. Click on the dad picture again... EWW! His eyeballs and mouth... R.I.P., although we didn't know you. *Creak* That sounded like it came from the Corridor! Get your pillows!
This reminds me of the Grudge. There's a light switch, and a note on the ground. Hahahahaha... I flicked the light-switch on and off and clicked on the note that appeared... Clicky Clicky Clicky... OMGWTFBBQ!?!?!?! WEIRD LOOKING GIRL! WHERE'S MY PILLOW... T.T And after that...
If you can understand the storyline, you will learn that it was the daughter who had murdered the family. I don't understand much of why though.
But... CONGRATZ! You found out this mystery!
Hope you enjoy this guide as much as I had making it myself. Go Sinthai and JIG! Great work of horror. :) Gave me the chills for a day! See you... in the house..
P.S. Do not believe those who say this was NOT scary! This truly is a living nightmare!
it's not so terrifying. it was just like a pc game! too long too boring i am bored.
Am I the only one completely non-terrified by this game?
Seriously, I laughed when the kid's head fell.
It just wasn't scary at all.
Oh my god. That was a living nightmare!
Especially in the Corridor.
dude, the house 2 is officially out.
lemme know when you finished cuz im gonna need a walkthrough.
Throughout the game, I was telling myself 'Be brave, sphincter!'. Yeah, I think I'm going to watch the daily show or the muppets or something to remove the horror.
OMG is the most scary game EVER!when i got to the bathroom, i closed the window.
LOL! This was scary and funny at the same time!
When the woman came up from the bathtub I was like, "Hello, girl from the Grudge!".
scared the life out of me, when i heard the music and click the portrait and a ball dropped down i was closing my window didn't even continue after that! X)
Much fun playing it still shocked me
Thank you for making such a brilliant game with paranormal elements to it. There needs to be more games like this out for computer or something?? I love thought of ghost hungting or being in a haunted house it gives me great pleasure so this game helped me in that state of mind.
Keep these games coming!!!
Okay this truly scared the s*** out of me!
- I recently played the 2nd one too, and it was SO much better! Not to mention it actually made me SCREAM, and I was/still is a bit scared when I'm alone cause I feel like I'm being stalked haha.
nice game...A little spooky, but that was without sound. I started the game,heard the music, and immediately turned the sound off. I am a wimp. anyway, so who
killed the family? I THINK, from the in-game clues, that the mother had Cancer, and something (the dang UNHELPFUL clues don't tell us what) happens on the day she was supposed to get treated( whether the treatment didn't work, or she died before her treatment day or what)and she died. so to be with her family again, she hanged her daughter, drowned the other one, and shot her husband's brains out.
Thank you...!!! Good game...!!!
this game was good but i am not impressed so much i continue my journey to find the scariest game in the world
So, I guess
it was the mother who did it? Because she was dieing anyway (according to the note in the bathroom) and she said she would NEVER LEAVE THEM (dun dun dun!). She didn't want to lose them all when she died, so she took them with her. That was her with the long creepy hair in the corridor, right?
...cinder blocks were shat! The game scared me so bad I didn't get any sleep last night. The second was worse!
this game is soooo great!!
I`ve played it like, more than ten times (with all of my classmates) but it`s still scary! I cant even sleep
omg... the end scared the bajezzus outta me.. closed my eyes
OK, I've been looking at this game for about a year now, trying to convince myself that it's not way too scary to play. I want to play it, but I'm scared that the pictures will be too scary to look at. Can someone give me an idea on scariness factor? I don't like jump scares, but I can deal with them if I know exactly where they'll be. But scary pictures are altogether different. I'm not a scariness wimp, but I don't want to be scarred for life.
This game freaked me out. The graphics are amazing, between the lighting and music. My favorite was the bathroom. The first couple I times I played this game, I couldn't make it past the bathroom because I was so creeped out! But I finally did and it did freak me out a bit.
Overall, great game! Had me freaking. (: thanks Jay!
I liked it so much (but in a bad way)...i noticed the grammar was soooo wrong. the child was funny.ha.ha.ha
THAT'S OKAY I DIDN'T WANNA SLEEP TONIGHT.
I enjoy these types of games very much, but what I can never understand is why any writing within these games always has terrible grammar and punctuation.
Maybe I'm to much of a nerd, but the creepiness is diminished a little when the writing is awful. "The whole family members suicided" and "No one ever enter to this house". Word's spell check could have caught the missing s after enter, and the bad grammar. Even the copyright is missing the plural form of graphic.
It just worries me to encounter pre-elementary language skills in someone with enough technical knowledge to design a decent game.
[Not everyone who creates games speaks English as their 1st language. This particular game author is from Thailand. We should be thankful that he made an effort to translate it to English for us. :) -Jay]
I work midnights in the basement of a hospital around the corner from the morgue. So yea. Good game, just wrong atmosphere for me to play it.
OMG OMG OMG I couldn't play it! I'm under 11 anyway lol. Above 9, though, so now u no ma age *lolwutroflpizza* I went in the living room, (pretty ironic, seeing as they died- the dieing room!) took one look at the photo, and freaked out. Not scream, just freak out. That girl looks soooo weird. Flippin' 'eck.
LOL this game is not scary at all! I almost died... laughing.
It is kinda funny at the end when the fugly chick got close to the screen I thought : what you really need is to wear a mask and book that plastic surgeon fast! rofl.
The bathroom scene was kinda weird though. The mom must have been SUCH a good parent i mean EVERYONE bathes their children in human blood right? and the children loved their mom so much that they gave her what every child gives their beloved mother: fatal poisen. lol
who ever made this game, u r awesum though fyi you might wanna try to make a version of this game that is actually scary. ok? ok.
goodness.. it's was a real perfect scary little game... but thanks for the walkthrough guide so i don't have to play and scary till my mum don't even know who am i...
My reactions to this game:
Kid's head (dining room): "oh, um, hello. Did you draw this picture? I, um, liked it..."
Hand from the tub (bathroom): "High five!!! w00ts!"
Hung Girl (kitchen): "Woah... you look just like your doll there..."
Shooting the portrait (living room): "OMG, did I just do that?! I didn't mean to D:"
Grudge in hall (corridor) "Woah... girl just popped up out of no where... woah, to clo... OMG! Did you gouge your eyes out or somthing?"
So, as you can tell, I don't take this game, or really any horror game very seriously...
I think your aftermath is off:
It isn't the daughter. It is the mother that killed her family.
The mother was dying of cancer, and the only way to stay with her family was to kill them all and take them with her.
I know I am years late, lol.
yes! someone finally got the aftermath right! thank you JIGuest! BTW, how do you do the Spoiler thing?
[There are link to instructions for spoilers just above the text box where you enter your comment. -Jay]
Well... It's not scary in any way, but I'm going to assume that it was some sort of an affectionate parody all along.
that exploding ball was already pretty funny, and the swinging girl just about cracked me up. And the onryo's face... Hrrm.
Yep, funny. Good design. Not a game, though. I'd give it 4, I think.
"Oh a head rising out of the tub. Yeah, that's really scOHMYGODWHATTHEHELLWASTHAT!?"
I'm stopping playing this. So far each scare is a silent screamer
I'll admit, I must be obsessed with this game, considering I'm commenting a third time, But I showed my thirteen year old cousin this. When it was done, she looked at me like I was crazy for telling her it was scary. So, yes, for some it may be a living nightmare, while for others, well, not so much.
I, personaly, liked the game for it's black and white, atmosphere in the air while playing, and body parts falling from the ceiling. Others my not be, well, fans of it.
If this did not make you jump (or fall out of your chair, @ my brother XD) you should play the 2nd. The link is in the spoiler below:
sry, here you go: https://jayisgames.com/games/the-house-2/
while we are playing this with my cousin we covered our face of pillows because its totally so scary,.....and I think the mom. who murdered them all..
so, the mom had cancer, and she went crazy, hung her kid and her kids' doll, shot the head off her other kid, her husband, then ate a whole can of poison AND drowned herself??
so, the mom had

I think I might have expected too much of this game. I played it, and in my opinion it really wasn't all that scary. In some parts, it was kind of funny. The lady at the end kind of looked like a man.
wow very scary game i was very scared :)))
ooh my god this house is very scary
the girl kills her family because her mom is dying of cancer and doesn't wnt her family to be seperated... she thinks that if she kills them all that they will be together in heaven "F O R E V E R"
i got really scared when the body popped out in the kitchen so made my brother come in and play with me this is the first game i have played of yours do you have anymore besides the house1 and the house 2
I played this game with my friends and it was so scary!! But anyway it was funny. And i don't know why we died IN THE BEDROOM????
this game was not scarey...
but it scared the living daylights outta my boyfriend
I thought i had this game figured out, but some other opinions may have swayed my logic.
Well, in my mind, the mother was dying of cancer, so to make sure her family never left her when she died, she killed then all, (or at least got her daughter to do it and then commit suicide.)
I rechecked all my sources, and i think I got it solved, though i am not sure.
It was REALLY well designed, and quite a bit freaky. Loved the old timey graphics and fonts!
I just finished the game, and according to the clues in the house, I have reasonable beliefs that the walkthrough is wrong pertaining to its conclusion as to who is responsible for the family's death.
It's definitely the mother who did it since in the first room, you see the picture with the darker lady, and the son with the burst basketball, who apparently was decapitated, since his headless ghost sits on the window ledge.
The second room featured poison and I believe the mother poisoned herself after killing her family because she wanted to be with them after she dies, which she will eventually because she's got cancer.
In the kitchen(?) the daughter was hanged, evident by the ID card that was dropped, and the father was apparently shot by his wife, clue supplied by the note.
So I'm pretty sure it's the mother who did it, since the corridor featured the same dark lady in the drawing from the first room.
If I'm wrong, please let me know of your conclusion and how you came about it.
So bloody glad that I read the walkthrough/comments before playing the actual game o_o. I would have wet myself. I am definitely not the horror-friendly type. I got my friend to play it, he wet himself. So I prob would have like, DIED of shock or something. Anyways, GREAT GAME.
Hey, just wanted to point out that the storyline proposed in the walkthrough is incorrect. If you followed all the clues correctly you will find that it was actually the MOTHER that killed everyone. First of all, didn't you think for one minute, "Hmm... She's been hung and I just saw a ghost in the doorway... Hmm... She must be the killer...". Doesn't make a lot of sense does it? First piece of the puzzle was the note on the bathroom which was written to the mum acknowledging her serious illness. Second piece of the puzzle is the calendar that says cancer treatment, enforcing the fact that the mum has a serious illness, one that she will probably die from. So when you're in the corridor and the note basically tells you that she killed the rest of the family so they could be with her always, which suggests she knew she was going to die. It wasn't the daughter who suffered from a life-threatening disease. Who was it? Yep, that's right. The MOTHER. And plus, if you hadn't noticed, the father's killer then hid the gun (and a note) behind the portrait. The work of a teenager?
You know what the saddest part is? I'm 12 and I could put the puzzle together. You're probably x2 my age (or more)and you thought it was the daughter. Sherlock Holmes would probably have a heart attack. Seriously.
P.S- What's so scary about it? You kind of asked for it when you started playing this game. It's all a bit obvious. One word. Twelve.
I remember playing this when I was about 11 years old! I'm 17 now and I'm still as freaked out by this as I was then! Great game, great website!
I played this with the volume so low that I could barely hear the games sound effects and music with the lights on, the TV on and my husband feeding our daughter right behind me. I still suffered several minor heart attacks from playing this :P
wow,that's SOO scary T.T
first time playing horror game,maybe its too much for me.
the moment 'that' head fall,i run away to my mom.
i'll try again next time to finish this...maybe
Holy Freaking out, Batman! That was one of the scariest games I have ever played. Jeez, Just reading the walkthrough was scary enough. It took me like an hour to get up the nerve to actually play the game. *Shudder* I couldn't get past the bathroom. This is AWESOME! And usually I hate scary stuff, but this was a WHOLE NEW LEVEL for me!
That game was great. Keep them on a roll Jay!
Great horror game, one of the most scariest flash games that i ve ever played online.
