House Party 0.15.5 Stable Release (Redeploy)

Happy Friday, party people!
 
We’ve got a redeploy for House Party, bringing us to update 0.15.5! This time round, we’ve made sure the loading issue that many House Party players were experiencing is gone for good. No more staring at the screen as Brittney stares back, eating away at your soul.
 
We’ve also done some other touch ups to our massive 0.15.4 update, but more than anything it was about getting this loading issue resolved. Alright, have a good weekend!
 
-Eek Team
 
Changelog
 
0.15.5
 

Fixed an issues that was causing long loading times
Added code to prevent characters from doing exaggerated animations while holding items, causing them to sometimes clip
Fixed an issue that could cause characters with a combat Stamina between 0 and 1 to get hit for more damage than intended
Added the MatchValue GameEvent for CSC Users, and a corresponding Console Command. This will allow you to set Character values to be equal to each other (across Characters, or two values for one Character)
Fixed an issue that could cause a Character’s zone to not update properly if they were sitting, laying down, or in certain other poses
Performance optimization of Zoning system
Listening the Quests for a specific character via the Quest console command will no longer count as Cheating

Listing the Events for a specific character via the Events console command will now show the name of the event, followed by the event’s type, and finally if it is enabled or not
The Events console command will now correctly list Events assigned to DialogueOnlyCharacters (Compubrah, Phone Call). Be aware that DialogueOnlyCharacters can make use of very few Event types, e.g. GameStarts
Optimization of the command console to prevent excess garbage collection, memory usage, and mitigate hiccups
Corrections to a number of ‘help’ and ‘example’ texts for various console commands
In the Original Story: Ashley will not be considered “Occupied” for quite as much of her “Sibling Warfare” opportunity, which will prevent her from being unavailable in some circumstances that did not make sense
In the Combat Training story: There is now a Help text on the briefcase. Cause, you know…this is a learning experience and stuff
In the Combat Training story: The NPCs that are summoned for combat practice will wait to attack you until you attack them
In the Combat Training story: Fixed a few bugs that were causing duplicate messages to display
In the Combat Training story: If the Player wins one fight, they can unlock Social Justic…Outrage Mode

In the Original Story: The Player can now unlock Leah’s VR reward if they have fully completed her content, have the Open Briefcase in their inventory, and THEN engage in any sort of intimacy…Compubrah can get data this way, for sure

In the Original Story: Patrick will not walk to the Player to talk to them about his VR brahmbat training if the Player betrayed him at any point

In the Original Story: Frank, due to being terrified by Leah toward the finale of the “evil”/Ronin finale of “Broken Code”, will be slightly weaker until “Broken Code” is Completed or Failed, even moreso if he witnesses the Player’s descent into Rage…
In the Original Story: Certain food items from the fridge can now be eaten for additional Combat Stat increases, and health restoration. Remember that these may or may not be needed for use in other content!
In the Original Story: Fixed an issue that could cause the “Signs of Affection” Opportunity to become stuck, if the Player also had “Road to Redemption” active at the same time
In the Original Story: Cleaned up a redundant Derek hint response about getting closer to Ashley
In the Original Story: Drunk Lety will try to avoid bothering the Player about starting the “Try Anything Once” opportunity if the Player is in combat or about to be in combat
In the Original Story: Fixed a couple humiliating typos in one of Rachael’s BGC’s. This is why we don’t have localization for your language…we can’t even use our own correctly

In the Original Story: Fixed an issue that could cause Ashley’s “Drunk and Disorderly” to break after the finale fight
In the Original Story: Fixed an issue that could cause eating a certain item to compromise Katherine’s positioning, permanently
In the Original Story: Katherine will no longer wait around forever for the Player to get intimate with her. Since she hates her boyfriend so much, however, she will still be willing to give the Player a shot even if he was slow in tending to her needs. What honor. Such loyalty.
In the Original Story: Fixed an issue that could cause Patrick to repeatedly deliver “VR hint” dialogue after Leah’s Garage Search in “Snake in the Grass”
In the Original Story: Fixed another issue with Leah/Lety content clashing towards the end of the yard/perimeter search in “Snake in the Grass”
In the Original Story: Amy won’t be as likely to trigger her toe stub dialogue while Ashley is confronting Madison during Ashley’s “Drunk and Disorderly”
In the Original Story: Rachael won’t be as likely to confront Patrick about his website while Ashley is confronting Madison during Ashley’s “Drunk and Disorderly”
In the Original Story: Fixed a few issues that remained in regards to Leah-Lety “Just in the Kick of Time placement and movement event timing, as well as availability of certain Leah dialogue responses right before Leah and Lety’s conversation starts
In the Original Story: Fixed an issue that could cause game message spam to occur if the Player was far away from Leah and Lety while they were waiting to talk
In the Original Story: Fixed an issue caused by yesterday’s (10/14) Katherine master bedroom “wait behavior” change that could result in her not having her phone or glasses properly mounted or enabled
In the Original Story: There is now an apology response available so that the Player can recover from Untying Ashley’s top AFTER having been nice to her all game and completed “Signs of Affection” from Vickie. But pursuing the actual “make up” part with Ashley in this situation won’t require the Blue Flower or even be completable depending on your other previous choices…
In the Original Story: Fixed an incorrect criteria in an “apologize to Ashley” line that was preventing the Player from receiving a small social bonus with Ashley
In the Original Story: After throwing beer on Madison, Ashley wills till try to walk to the Player, but only if she is not occupied with other content the Player has involved her with, if the Player is not in combat, etc. This will prevent her from disappearing during moments of the “Family Time” opportunity, or bothering the Player mid-fight against Frank, and more annoying crap
In the Original Story: Addressed an issue which could cause Madison to approach the Player about her Sky Animal crap at inopportune times
In the Original Story: Certain “approach the Player and bother them” or “HEY PLAYER LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON HERE!” events like Amy’s “Toe Stub” moment with Steph are now delayed by a brief universal time buffer, to prevent them from all happening at once quite as often
In the Original Story: Ashley will no longer react to the Player’s amazing, shirtless body if she is in the middle of “Family Time” with Patrick

House Party 0.15.4 Stable Release

Leah’s time has come! It’s the official release of 0.15.4 and with it a whoooole bunch of additions to House Party. Seriously, we’re getting wild in this update. 
 
If you’ve been following this release, you know that Leah’s new story includes around 400 lines of new dialogue and some very new, very unique items. Leah’s story includes 2 major branches that play to the good and the evil that boils inside every asskicker. Which side will you lead her towards? 
 
And speaking of asskicking, combat is now a feature in House Party. From the moment you walk in the door, you can raise your fists and show Patri–I mean people what you’re made of. There are several items and activities that you can do around the house to increase your strength, stamina, and speed, but completing Leah’s story is the best way to ensure you’re the heavyweight of the house. 
 
If you’re finding yourself in need of some combat training, we’ve added a brand new story that takes place entirely in Compubrah’s VR space. There, you’ll be able to train in the dojo of a deranged fratboy AI, and honestly, there can’t be a better place to learn how to throw a punch. You’ll find this story in the drop down on the main menu.  
 
Other highlights of this update include directional sound, new models for Frank and Leah, and awesome new additions to the Custom Story Creator. If you’re a CSC user, you’ve got some incredible new tools at your disposal, so check them out! 
 
Check out our full changelog below, but more than anything, get in there and play this update. We’re really proud of it and we hope you enjoy how House Party has grown. 
 
Next update…oh yeah…I guess there were these two guys that won a contest to be in our game? Guess we’ll let them out of their cages now. 
 
Thanks!
-Eek Team

The CharInfo command will no longer flag the Player as ‘Cheated’ (i.e. will not disable Achievements). GIVE US YOUR DATAZ

In the Original Story: the Player can now drink the El Escorpion Mezcal
In the Original Story: Leah will now correctly react to the Player drinking any alcohol in front of her
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Frank to beat up the Player prematurely, had the Player drank the Tampered Rum near him. Frank will now approach the Player to enjoy the rectal festivities
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Leah to beat up the Player prematurely, had the Player drank the Tampered Rum near her. Leah will now approach the Player to enjoy the rectal festivities
In the Original Story: tweaked the behavior of Derek stepping in to stop Frank from beating up the Player, if the Player unlocked Derek’s “Combat Perk” during The Muse: Derek will not step in if the Player has initiated content which occupies Derek, and Derek will not stop Running at inopportune times due to his “Combat Perk” dialogue
In the Original Story: drinking the contents of the flask (after Rachael has filled it for you) now incurs the same benefits and repercussions as drinking any other alcohol
In the Original Story: drinking Natty Lites will now have a minor effect on the Player’s “Sensitivity”, to give them another reason to be drank during the “Training Day” opportunity vs. the other alcoholic items in the game
In the Original Story: drinking the Merlot will now have the same benefit to the Player’s “Sensitivity” for the “Training Day” opportunity as drinking any other alcoholic item would
In the Original Story: drinking the Chardonnay will now have the same benefit to the Player’s “Sensitivity” for the “Training Day” opportunity as drinking any other alcoholic item would

In the Original Story: minor cleanup of Ashley and Vickie’s behaviors during and after the “Sibling Warfare” finale
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Leah’s Roaming to be permanently off as part of the events leading up to “Screw Like a Bee…”

In the Original Story: slight tweaks to timing of Keychain/HangingKeys itemfunctions to improve look of Keychain/HangingKeys on Patrick’s manhood
A Vickie vixen Valentine: added a response for Vickie that will have her step aside, should the Player somehow get stuck behind her while she is in Madison’s closet or Ashley’s bedroom
Date Night With Brittney: fixed an issue that could cause redundant thought bubbles to appear when walking away from Patrick after speaking to him for the first time

Added voice acting for all new content
Added male and player “talking on phone” animation
Fixed an issue where the speakers would sometimes lose sync with each other
Fixed an issue where objects would not regain their textures after being lost in the grass and being illuminated

The stairs no longer use one very tall collider that blocks obvious line of sight for the first 8 steps or so. The angle of the stair railings and geometry is now followed…be careful there!

Added a Vision Blocker to part of the kitchen sink window to prevent sight checks passing from around the Outside Move Target in through the front hallway(!)
Added Vision Blocker that loosely follows the OUTER/firepit-side edge of the bushes outside the living room. This (and the curtain Blockers) will prevent NPCs looking in through the densest portions of the bushes AND through the window blinds to be unable to see other Characters, but will leave gaps on the widest viewing angles into the living room. It will also allow creepers to more effectively hide in the bushes away from Characters at the fire pit, etc.
NPCs can now also see out the laundry room and art room windows if another Character is on the roof
Standardized all height checks in the codebase to 1.8 units
The TriggerBGC command will now close the console so that the user can see the specified NPC more clearly as well as any chatter text that might come up
Added a global AddSmallForwardMomentum ItemFunction that can be used to throw many different items
Made more small items “extra” visible if dropped outside in the grass
Added a new event, WarpItemTo, that will allow CSC users to warp items (not chairs, beds, etc., just regular interactive items) to a movetarget or character. This will not work cleanly with all interactive items due to certain object or prefab structures, and is therefore a work in progress
Added WarpItemTo subcommand for the Item console command
Added a couple more sound effects that can be used with the InvisAudioPlayer via ItemFunction
Re-added a sex spot to Compubrah VR bed that could cause issues when Characters tried to use it
Fixed an issue that could potentially have caused the Dining Room TV’s screen to not update when the MP3 Player was used with the Aux Dock
Added a GlobalizationManager (for future extension) and modified handling of certain time localization code to avoid exceptions being thrown for specific regions
Fixed a hardcoded typo in SearchEditor that could prevent “Anybody”-targeted searches from functioning correctly in the CSC
Fixed DisplayGameMessage events showing two “Delay” texts when configuring the event in the CSC
Started adding some “auto cleanup” functionality within the CSC that will clear out event data that is not needed by a given event. For example, DisplayGameMessages do not need an e.Key (event Key), and leaving it populated can lead to confusing search functionality and bloat, or even user errors when making heavy use of the CSC’s copy-paste feature
CSC users can now rearrange the order of Event Triggers within Character Stories
CSC users will now get specific Interaction and Use With information when CSC Search results are found within the Main Story file
CSC users will now be told when CSC Search results found within a Dialogue are tied to a Start Event, Close Event, or Response Event
The pink dildo now has a collision sound. TOP PATCH NOTE RIGHT HERE
Added collision sounds to a few more interactive items that matter way less than the dildo
Fixed the way certain console commands (WarpTo, WalkTo, LookAt, and more) interpret DialogueOnly characters like Compubrah and PhoneCall. These will now be ignored in commands or as parameters for subcommands that should not or cannot make use of them
Ashley’s Top, or as it is known colloquially, “Ashley’s Goddamn Motherfucking Upper-Shitpiece of a Left Mouse Gravity Well”, will no longer have its “Untie” option on the right, where “Talk” normally is for NPCs. Rejoice fam

In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could allow Rachael to attempt to execute the events of her…”self pleasure” dare twice
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Ashley and Patrick’s inspect texts to break between the end of “Family Time” and the Player talking to Ashley
In the Original Story: Steph will not “see” knockouts/fights (this precipitates some of her “Follow Your Calling” content) if she cannot actually see anyone else, and she will not count various temporary NPC or Player knockouts (which are not combat related)
In the Original Story: Stephanie must also be conscious in order to “see” a knockout/fight
In the Original Story: fixed an issue with Ashley’s NoUntieYet value handling that could cause inspecting her top to generate redundant inspect texts, and possibly prevent her top from being untied ever again after certain events in her stories
In the Original Story: Frank will not overhear the Player admitting to Derek that he has feelings for him if Frank cannot see the Player
In the Original Story: added Jump Up/Down events into existing moments when a couple characters leave the party via the yard
In the Original Story: the Player can no longer use the Gutter to climb onto the roof when they are in Combat or ANY character has the Player as their CombatTarget
In the Original Story: Added the following Achievements: “The Harder They Fall…Dood”, “The Bride”, “Ronin”, “Sucker Punch”, and “Money Shot”
In the Original Story: added another Log Off option a bit earlier in Compubrah’s dialogue options
In the Original Story: fixed a text-VA discrepancy in Leah’s line to Frank, after Leah is “Poppered” successfully by the Player during “Just in the Kick of Time”
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could allow the Player to access Lety VR rewards without meeting the prerequisites, which could lead to a break in Lety’s VR behavior
In the Original Story: VR/Virtual Lety will no longer use non-VR Lety’s Orgasm events
In the Original Story: the Player will now un-expose themselves before returning to the party after Lety VR intimacy, if they managed to have all their clothes on but still keep their tasty bits out

Tweaked and optimized fighting mechanics
Exposed various combat-related parameters to the Custom Story Creator
Fixed an issue with items mounting in weird positions when they are mounted twice in a row to the same NPC
Fixed an issue with NPCs not being able to open the closet doors in the art room
Added combat movement animations to the player
Tweaked the combat UI
The IKReach game event and IKReach Console Command can now be used to direct a character’s hands, hips, or feet towards a movetarget or character, in addition to interactive items
When a character IKReach-es for another character, they will target the secondary character’s chest
TriggerBGCs that are initiated while an NPC is ALREADY knocked out will now play as long as that NPCs “pass out” sound effect is not currently playing
The Player character now has its own KnockBack Character Function(edited)
When using the Player : Inventory : Remove game event, the item that is removed/drops will now use the Continuous Dynamic collision detection mode, similar to other events on the backend like throwing, etc. This more aggressive collision detection mode should help some with certain items being kicked through floors, etc.
Refactored a number of items’ collision detection modes and code to prevent kinematic rigidbody and collision detection mode error spam and small number of standalone warnings
Added another Phone item to the game
The vibrator now has a very-relevant-and-not-at-all-made-at-home-with-things-the-developers-touch sound effect available
InteractiveItems can now have their Audio playback stopped via the StopAllAudio ItemFunction

In the Original Story: tweaked some events around the time Stephanie, Katherine, and the Player are talking about Katherine’s stomach issues to better ensure Amy’s presence with the group

Gave Leah an Earpiece she can reach for. For security reasons
Added the “PhoneBlindedMe” reaction event for CSC users. This will trigger when a Phone Light is visibly on and a Character enters a roughly character-sized capsule that extends outward from the Phone Light

DialogueOnly Characters like PhoneCall and Compubrah can no longer be set to receive GetsHitByProjectile event triggers in the CSC
In the CSC, an Event Trigger can now call itself via a PerformEvent game event IF its Delay is greater than zero. Previously, this was restricted due to the possibility of recursively firing an infinite number of events with a delay of zero, which could freeze the game
Various accuracy and reliability improvements to the GetsHitByProjectile event functionality

All bathroom floor types should use the same footstep sound
Fixed an issue with the “Player” console command’s “inventory” subcommand that could also cause items to sometimes fall through certain floors
For CSC users: implemented a new ‘zoning’ system that allows you to check if a character is in a room or ‘zone’ inside or outside of the house, OR fire an event trigger/reaction if a character enters a zone/room
Adjusted the NoLoitering system so it will no longer try to fire whenever any and/or all of a character’s ragdoll colliders enter a NoLoiter/Redirect area; firing once per “character entry” now results in a more reliable NoLoitering changelocation

In the Original Story: Amy will be very, very considerate about stubbing her toe, and will not do so if the Player is in combat or has an intimacy partner. She will also miraculously avoid injuring herself if she is being spoken to, or if Stephanie is being spoken to. Thanks Amy!
In the Original Story: Rachael will no longer confront Patrick and try to beat him up if the Player is already in combat. Who wouldn’t want to watch that?

House Party 0.15.3 Released to Beta Testers

 
If you are already a Beta Patron or would like to learn how to
become one click here.
 
Awww yeahhh, BETA TIME.
 
What’s the only thing that could bring this new Leah content up to its true fighting weight? The only answer: VOICE ACTING. (And a shit load of bug fixes, but that doesn’t sound as good.)
 
This newest beta release includes VA for (nearly) all of Leah’s new storyline. We’re not kissing our own ass here, but we think this includes some of the most entertaining voice acting you’ll hear all year. Frank and Leah’s VAs absolutely killed it. You’ve gotta give this beta a play so you can see the light. I guess you’d be hearing the light.
 
Also, if you complete Patrick’s storyline and unlock the VR space, you’ll also be able to use that space for combat training! Mind you, you’ll have to reach the garage sparring session in Leah’s new content to unlock this feature as well. Just think of all the endless virtual assbeatings you can serve up…
 
And there are a lot of bug fixes too. Things are really coming together! Enjoy Patrons!
 
-Eek Team
 
0.15.3
(Beta 9/24/19)

Added voice acting for all new content
Added male and player “talking on phone” animation
Fixed an issue where the speakers would sometimes lose sync with each other
Fixed an issue where objects would not regain their textures after being lost in the grass and being illuminated
Fixed an issue where warp-locations to move targets could get corrupted on a reload or loaded saved game
The stairs no longer use one very tall collider that blocks obvious line of sight for the first 8 steps or so. The angle of the stair railings and geometry is now followed…be careful there!
Added new Vision Blockers around downstairs curtains to prevent obnoxious NPC sight checks when trying to hide
Added a Vision Blocker to part of the kitchen sink window to prevent sight checks passing from around the Outside Move Target in through the front hallway(!)
Added Vision Blocker that loosely follows the OUTER/firepit-side edge of the bushes outside the living room. This (and the curtain Blockers) will prevent NPCs looking in through the densest portions of the bushes AND through the window blinds to be unable to see other Characters, but will leave gaps on the widest viewing angles into the living room. It will also allow creepers to more effectively hide in the bushes away from Characters at the fire pit, etc.
NPCs can now also see out the laundry room and art room windows if another Character is on the roof
Standardized all height checks in the codebase to 1.8 units
The TriggerBGC command will now close the console so that the user can see the specified NPC more clearly as well as any chatter text that might come up
Added a global AddSmallForwardMomentum ItemFunction that can be used to throw many different items
Made more small items “extra” visible if dropped outside in the grass
Added a new event, WarpItemTo, that will allow CSC users to warp items (not chairs, beds, etc., just regular interactive items) to a movetarget or character. This will not work cleanly with all interactive items due to certain object or prefab structures, and is therefore a work in progress
Added WarpItemTo subcommand for the Item console command
Added a couple more sound effects that can be used with the InvisAudioPlayer via ItemFunction
Re-added a sex spot to Compubrah VR bed that could cause issues when Characters tried to use it
Fixed an issue that could potentially have caused the Dining Room TV’s screen to not update when the MP3 Player was used with the Aux Dock
Added a GlobalizationManager (for future extension) and modified handling of certain time localization code to avoid exceptions being thrown for specific regions
Fixed a hardcoded typo in SearchEditor that could prevent “Anybody”-targeted searches from functioning correctly in the CSC
Fixed DisplayGameMessage events showing two “Delay” texts when configuring the event in the CSC
Started adding some “auto cleanup” functionality within the CSC that will clear out event data that is not needed by a given event. For example, DisplayGameMessages do not need an e.Key (event Key), and leaving it populated can lead to confusing search functionality and bloat, or even user errors when making heavy use of the CSC’s copy-paste feature
CSC users can now rearrange the order of Event Triggers within Character Stories
CSC users will now get specific Interaction and Use With information when CSC Search results are found within the Main Story file
CSC users will now be told when CSC Search results found within a Dialogue are tied to a Start Event, Close Event, or Response Event
The pink dildo now has a collision sound. TOP PATCH NOTE RIGHT HERE
Added collision sounds to a few more interactive items that matter way less than the dildo
Fixed the way certain console commands (WarpTo, WalkTo, LookAt, and more) interpret DialogueOnly characters like Compubrah and PhoneCall. These will now be ignored in commands or as parameters for subcommands that should not or cannot make use of them
Ashley’s Top, or as it is known colloquially, “Ashley’s Goddamn Motherfucking Upper-Shitpiece of a Left Mouse Gravity Well”, will no longer have its “Untie” option on the right, where “Talk” normally is for NPCs. Rejoice fam
In the Original Story: added some minor protections against Katherine ending up outside the Downstairs Bathroom after Frank opens it for her and she closes that door
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Rachael to be given more than one dare instruction at a time when loading a saved game
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could allow Rachael to attempt to execute the events of her…”self pleasure” dare twice
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Ashley and Patrick’s inspect texts to break between the end of “Family Time” and the Player talking to Ashley
In the Original Story: Steph will not “see” knockouts/fights (this precipitates some of her “Follow Your Calling” content) if she cannot actually see anyone else, and she will not count various temporary NPC or Player knockouts (which are not combat related)
In the Original Story: Stephanie must also be conscious in order to “see” a knockout/fight
In the Original Story: fixed an issue with Ashley’s NoUntieYet value handling that could cause inspecting her top to generate redundant inspect texts, and possibly prevent her top from being untied ever again after certain events in her stories
In the Original Story: Frank will not overhear the Player admitting to Derek that he has feelings for him if Frank cannot see the Player
In the Original Story: added Jump Up/Down events into existing moments when a couple characters leave the party via the yard
In the Original Story: the Player can no longer use the Gutter to climb onto the roof when they are in Combat or ANY character has the Player as their CombatTarget
In the Original Story: Added the following Achievements: “The Harder They Fall…Dood”, “The Bride”, “Ronin”, “Sucker Punch”, and “Money Shot”
In the Original Story: added another Log Off option a bit earlier in Compubrah’s dialogue options
In the Original Story: fixed a text-VA discrepancy in Leah’s line to Frank, after Leah is “Poppered” successfully by the Player during “Just in the Kick of Time”
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could allow the Player to access Lety VR rewards without meeting the prerequisites, which could lead to a break in Lety’s VR behavior
In the Original Story: VR/Virtual Lety will no longer use non-VR Lety’s Orgasm events
In the Original Story: the Player will now un-expose themselves before returning to the party after Lety VR intimacy, if they managed to have all their clothes on but still keep their tasty bits out

House Party 0.15.2 Released to Beta Testers

If you are already a Beta Patron or would like to learn how to
become one click here.
 
Beta? I hardly know her! 
 
Damn, that joke was BAD. But hey, on a day such as this, nothing can bring me down. It’s time for our beta release of Leah’s new story! 
 
This one is a very special release because there’s some gameplay additions that’ll change the way House Party is played. No longer are you just a meatbag for Frank to pummel. Because starting today, you can FIGHT BACK! 
 
Combat has arrived to House Party! On top of being able to just throw hands, you’ll also have a health meter and a level of strength (not shown as a meter). All the other party goers have their own unique levels of strength, from wimps to heavy hitters. Sure, you start out weak, but there are ways to improve your fighting ability–specifically by completing Leah’s newest content. 
 
And speaking of content, there is a LOT dropping with this beta release. Inspired by KILL BILL and other stories of revenge, Leah’s story will take you on a journey of redemption or vengeance. And boobs. And it all starts by finding a secret pet that’s been living in the house…and unleashing it. 
 
Lot’s of fun stuff here! Have fun playing it, and breaking it! You guys are awesome. 
 
-Eek Team

TriggerBGCs that are initiated while an NPC is ALREADY knocked out will now play as long as that NPCs “pass out” sound effect is not currently playing
The Player character now has its own KnockBack Character Function(edited)
When using the Player : Inventory : Remove game event, the item that is removed/drops will now use the Continuous Dynamic collision detection mode, similar to other events on the backend like throwing, etc. This more aggressive collision detection mode should help some with certain items being kicked through floors, etc.
Refactored a number of items’ collision detection modes and code to prevent kinematic rigidbody and collision detection mode error spam and small number of standalone warnings
Added another Phone item to the game
The vibrator now has a very-relevant-and-not-at-all-made-at-home-with-things-the-developers-touch sound effect available
InteractiveItems can now have their Audio playback stopped via the StopAllAudio ItemFunction
Pretty sure you all wanted this: added the PokedByVibrator Event Trigger. Right? Hello? AM I ALONE IN THIS HIVE OF BEES?
Enabled the vibrator’s “Clitpocalypse” setting…
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Stephanie to appear in the hallway with her paper bag during “Meltdown”, instead of being in the Spare Room
In the Original Story: Steph will no longer get distracted and talk to other NPCs or try to dance if she committed to following the Player while he finds a private spot for intimacy after “Meltdown”
In the Original Story: added provisions that should prevent the Player from accidentally disabling certain dialogues and responses that lead into Steph’s “living room” intimacy scene that rewards the player with $50
In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Ashley to go to the outside dark corner after being given the lit joint, even when it made much more sense for her to go to her room to continue her story
In the Original Story: NPCs will not roam to Ashley or engage her in background chatter while she is naked in her room and waiting for the Player to wash her clothes. Ashley will also not socialize with NPCs until the Player decides whether he is a jerk or not
In the Original Story: Ashley will be slightly more adamant about trying to get back to her room while naked and waiting for her clothes
In the Original Story: tweaked some events around the time Stephanie, Katherine, and the Player are talking about Katherine’s stomach issues to better ensure Amy’s presence with the group
In the Original Story: tweaked some event and dialogue behavior that could lead to the Player experiencing duplicate back-to-back dialogues when talking to Stephanie about being intimate in a secluded “swanky spot”
In the Original Story: the option to “Slap Awake” Frank will be visible during the “Training Day” opportunity, but will now offer some explanation as to why it shouldn’t be used
In the Original Story: made some tweaks to Leah’s “See a KO” or “See a Fight” reactions that should make them feel a bit less out of place
In the Original Story: More NPCs will check against their Occupied values before reacting to the finale of Ashley’s “Drunk and Disorderly”
In the Original Story: miscellaneous minor tweaks to pre-0.15.x event timings and usage of redundant/preventative criteria

House Party 0.15.1 Released to Alpha Testers

 
If you are already an Alpha Patron or would like to learn how to
become one click here.
 
House Partiers,
 
We never like to keep you waiting. It’s time for another alpha and this one’s packed with new content. 
 
Leah’s mighty story has two diverging paths (with even more paths within those paths!) and at the time of this alpha release, one full path is complete. Crazy, hilarious stuff goes down in this story, stuff we can’t wait for our VAs to take a whack at. We hope you’ll see why.  
 
Have a good weekend and as always, thanks for having our back! 
 
-Eek Team
 
P.S. For those who may have missed it, the original creator and CEO of Eek Games was a guest on a gamedev podcast recently. He spoke about the ins and outs of House Party. Take a listen if you’ve got the chance!

Player.Sit and Player.Laydown events will now have the target bed/chair shown in the logs and in the CSC

Tweaked the dropdowns in the CSC for State Events and State Criteria to be alphabetically sorted, and the order of the dropdowns within the GUI element to be more in-line with the game event and criteria naming structure
Gave Leah an Earpiece she can reach for. For security reasons
Added the “PhoneBlindedMe” reaction event for CSC users. This will trigger when a Phone Light is visibly on and a Character enters a roughly character-sized capsule that extends outward from the Phone Light
Added a new Move Target/Sex Spot in the garage, behind the ping pong table. Watch out…balls from above!
DisplayGameMessage events will now have their GameMessageTypes option displayed in the CSC and when logged in the Debug Log

DialogueOnly characters (Phone Call, Compubrah) can no longer be selected for an IKReach event
Further standardization of Game Event naming and logging conventions with CSC dropdowns
WalkToTargetOption “Cancel” will no longer show up in various places in the CSC where having a “Cancel” option was inappropriate
Further standardization of Criteria naming and CSC dropdowns (against Game Events where appropriate), with exceptions for criteria such as “Distance”, “Vision” and “Is In Front Of”, etc. which are more readable with slightly different formatting. Decreased OCD variance matrix by -0.2207 chodivars
Added missing dropdowns for the Criteria/CompareType when selecting IsCurrentlyUsing or IsCurrentlyBeingUsed

Characters will no longer be able to attempt to warp to themselves via the WarpTo console command
Important/TriggerBGC will now be shown even if an NPC is not within direct line of sight of the Player, or is a full floor above the Player
DialogueOnly Characters like PhoneCall and Compubrah can no longer be set to receive GetsHitByProjectile event triggers in the CSC
In the CSC, an Event Trigger can now call itself via a PerformEvent game event IF its Delay is greater than zero. Previously, this was restricted due to the possibility of recursively firing an infinite number of events with a delay of zero, which could freeze the game
Various accuracy and reliability improvements to the GetsHitByProjectile event functionality
In the Original Story: added a preventative check to ensure that Derek doesn’t permanently get his shirt back after he gives it to the Player during Amy’s “Scavenger Hunt” opportunity
In the Original Story: giving Ashley an untampered soda while she is waiting for her clothes to be returned to her will result in the failure of the :Humiliate Ashley: opportunity

House Party 0.15.0 Released to Alpha Testers

 
We figured hump day was a good day to release our next Alpha for you lovely folks. We think you’re gonna like it. 
 
With Leah being the main focus of this story, there was no better time to introduce a mechanic we’ve been dying to add to House Party for a long time: PLAYER COMBAT. 
 
Since the early days of HP, fists have been flying but never from the player. This Alpha is our first step towards building out the player’s combat abilities against other NPCs. This includes punching and blocking, meaning you’ll be able to finally go toe-to-toe with Frank! 
 
Now, we’re not Skyrim, but we did introduce a strength system. Each partygoer has their own strength that determines how hard of a punch they can throw, and they also have other stats that factor in like speed and stamina. That means there are a couple of “Boss-tier” fighters in the house. We’ll…let you figure out who those people are. You probably have a good idea. 
 
Keep in mind, you’re not Mike Tyson. Don’t expect to come in swinging and dominate the house. You’ll need to practice fighting to take down even the lower strength NPCs. Shit, maybe we are Skyrim…
 
You can toggle “Combat Mode” by pressing the space bar.
 
This Alpha lays the foundation of Leah’s epic story. You’ll only get a taste of the new story content to come, but it should get you excited for Leah’s journey ahead. We had a lot of fun with this one.
 
All items related to this story have been implemented, so you should see some pretty neat additions around the house. There are several very unique things to find, so a little exploration could do you some good. *Ahem* Ashley’s room *Ahem*
 
Lastly, you may notice from these screenshots that we’re implementing different visual filters. These have a reason to exist in Leah’s story (not yet explored in this Alpha) but they also add a very cool aesthetic to HP. 
 
We’re really pleased with how Leah’s story is growing and we’ve got much more to show you in a few week’s time. Enjoy these new features in the meantime! 
 
-Eek Team

0.14.4 Stable Release

The time has come…House Party 0.14.4 is HERE! 
 
For those of you who haven’t heard, 0.14.4 is centered around LetyDoesStuff, who was the winner of our “Be in the Game” contest along with the Game Grumps. We worked really closely with Lety to tell an awesome, fully-fleshed story that adds a crap-load of new content. 
 
Expect hundreds and hundreds of new dialogues split between 10 characters, several new interactive items, a UI redesign (that looks sharp as shit), and new animations–both in and out of the bedroom. 
 
One other awesome addition to this update is that saves between versions of House Party will no longer be deleted, meaning you can load and continue your previous playthroughs. However, for the most stable experience, and to gain future Steam Achievements, a new save is still recommended. 
 
And to that end… HUZZAH! Steam Achievements are working again! Rejoice, you completionist weirdos! 
 
Seriously, we’re real damn proud of this new House Party chapter. For a full list of changes and additions, check out our changelog below. If you’ve got questions or feedback, you can find us at the usual spots–Discord[discord.gg], Official Forum[forum.eekllc.com], or Steam boards! 
 
Alright, it’s Miller Time. Enjoy this new content drop while we take a breath. Then, party people, it’s right back to working on Leah’s upcoming story! 
 

-Eek Team
 
P.S. For our German and Spanish players, translations for this newest update are coming soon. We’ll post an update when they’re added.
 
CHANGE LOG
 

New updated “selfie” pictures for Madison’s phone
Lighting improvements and color corrections
NPCs can no longer be shoved into closets and left for dead
Adjusted some areas of the map so NPCs can’t get stuck in select areas
Removed lamp colliders on stairs

NPCs will now not be as likely to choose a new Roaming ChangeLocation object within the same room, most notably in the larger rooms like Madison’s/Master Bedroom, and the Living Room-Dining Room-Kitchen area
The Item command’s “itemfunction list” functionality will no longer list items for which itemfunctions are not enabled/cannot be used
The Item command’s “itemfunction list” functionality will no longer duplicate list entries, and the formatting of the list has been cleaned up slightly
Added the CharFunc console command in order to allow testing/use of Character Functions
Fixed an issue with the CharInfo command that was preventing the correct distance to a character’s closest movetarget from being displayed correctly
Added the DontReleasePoseAfterSex state, which will prevent characters from automatically releasing their pose the moment an intimacy act is ended

In the Original Story: addressed a potential save/load issue with Rachael’s solo-pleasure dare that could cause the Spare Room 2/Art Room door to become locked forever

In the Original Story: fixed an issue that could cause Patrick to walk away from the Gazebo area towards the end of “Patty’s Striking Resemblance” (“Cloud of Mystery” path) and engage in “antics” anywhere
In the Original Story: much like how Patrick can overhear the Player telling Frank to beat him up and voice a line about being “betrayed”, Patrick can now also overhear the Player lying to Madison about him stealing things
In the Original Story: ensured that Patrick has to be able to actually see the betrayal (via Frank or Madison being sent to beat him up) take place in order to react, as opposed to only needing to overhear it

In A Vickie Vixen Valentine: fixed an issue that was causing the Painkillers/Allergy Meds to float in midair after opening the kitchen cabinet
In A Vickie Vixen Valentine: fixed an issue that was causing the Painkillers/Allergy Meds to potentially fall through the floor after falling out of the kitchen cabinet

House Party 0.14.2 Released to Beta Testers

If you are already a Beta Patron or would like to learn how to become one click here.
 
Hey guys!
 
The Beta release for Lety’s content is dropping TODAY! As always, our beta-access Patrons will be the first to dip their wicks into this new iteration of Lety’s feature-packed story. So let’s talk about it! 
 
Lety’s new content started as a simple cameo-like appearance, but as much as we’ve enjoyed working directly with Lety herself to bring this story to life, this story just continued to grow. This story is now similar to the size of Stephanie’s update from a few months ago. 
 
Lety’s not showing up to the party empty-handed–our newest member brings with her a whole bag full of new items that both play a part of her story, but will also add to the interactivity of every NPC at the party down the line. These items include throwables, a new type of alcohol, and…we don’t know how else to say this…a shit-talking novelty toy. It’s gonna get weird.
 
In addition to the new items, we’ve added new mechanics to House Party in this newest content update. In what we’re calling the “Eavesdrop” mechanic, players will be able to listen in on pivotal conversations that they can then influence through ways besides just talking. Some of these interactions will require the player to act fast to steer Lety safely through the booze-filled waters of her first party experience ever. 
 
We’ve also doubled down on intimacy interactions for this content drop, quite literally. 
 
While of course there’s some 1-on-1 intimacy action with Lety, there are also 2 different experiences where Lety and the player can find themselves in a threesome! Let me do the math here…2 threesomes with 2 different characters besides Lety…carry the 4…Fuck it–this is a lot of threesomeing. Both of these experiences are made to be a fun challenge, so don’t expect there to be a light-up sign that says “THREESOME THIS WAY!” Although, now we really want our artists to make that sign…It would probably be neon…
 
Currently, only half of the VAs have voiced the new lines for Lety’s update, so you may have to use your imagination until we get our final submissions from our lovely actors. This includes Lety’s dialogue as well. But, it’ll be added very soon!
 
We’re really looking forward to sharing Lety’s story with our beta-access Patrons, as always. Please let us know what you think of this new content via our forums or on Discord!

In the Original Story: NPCs will no longer try to roam to Katherine while she is sick in the downstairs bathroom
