About: Jo's house is a maze building game where you must rearrange the furniture of the HQ Residential House to create the longest path from Jo's bed to one of the exits (front door, back door or garage). At night Jo will start rolling around the house to either attack you, eat a pie or exit the house.  Your goal is to survive 3 nights doing the following 2 things: #1: Don't get hit by Jo.  #2: Don't let Jo leave the house.

Controls:

First person WASD with space to jump and Shift to run.
Mouse to look around.
E: to interact with things.
F: Flashlight.
Q: to drop pies (to lure Jo).
M: to bring up the map (Drag and Drop to move furniture on map).

Potential Issues: There is a possible lag issue when other applications are running while Jo’s house is playing. This issue will cause the talking text to be displayed slower and may cause Jo to teleport upstairs to the baby’s room at the start of the game (instead of walking to the kitchen).  Otherwise the game should still be functional.

Interesting idea! I liked it.

Thanks!

last time when i tried to play it, it lagged so much, so after a year or some i will try again

Sorry to hear that :(

(+1)

This is weird but it's a masterpiece 

i hope it works on my bad pc 
(1 edit) (+1)

is this supposed to be a comedy horror?

edit: i hope it is

(+2)

Yes, we definitely intended to pack some humor in there… However, when Jo starts rollin’ and the panic sets in… nobody is laughing.

yeah well, the panic does set in, but look at people playing night 1 for the first time not knowing how much they should be panicking rather than laughing!

(+2)

Very good and fun game!

There is a streamer Vargskelethor that want you to make Jo’s House 2 (And want to fund it). Hope you could contact him and make a sequel.

I laughed my ass of when he played this!

(+3)


This is truly a great video!! Depicts the struggle of someone who, against all odds, decides to help Jo out against his own will and the will of his audience.  Starts out rough, but it really picks up after the initial rage quit!!  Definitely nothing in here about Vargskelethor wanting to fund Jo’s House 2 LOL.  Thanks for putting this video in the comments though, it is a true masterpiece!!

(1 edit) (+2)

He says it at 31:00 he want to fund jo’s house 2. There was also another video i dont know which one.

(+1)

Oh wow… you weren’t kidding lol.  Nice to see that Jo made such an impression on him!!  This was very entertaining to watch!!!  So… Jo’s House 2 you say…

(+2)

You should join his Twitch stream some time and talk with him about it or dm him on twitter!

(+1)

masterpiece.

Thanks!!

(+1)

hi, big thx for the nice game. greetings from rosti 😘

Thanks for playing and leaving your video in the comments!!  To move the furniture you have to do it on the 2D map (drag and drop the furniture while the map is opened).

(+1)

posted this video a while back and the developers enjoyed it so I wanted to share it with y’all, enjoy

That’s great! Gotta watch that front door though, Jo is a slippery one. Thanks for playing!!

THE WEIRDEST HORROR GAME !!

Gracias por este increíble video.

I have never seen Jo chase someone around like he chased you at the end of this video. This was very entertaining to watch!!

(+1)

It's okay Jo, I was a sleepwalker too. Not nearly as rotund or destructive but...where was I going with this?

Awesome video!! This was very entertaining to watch! Good job and thanks for playing!!

(+1)

Wasted 12 hours on this masterpiece. The game is funny/entertaining/has big fun value. Made a first guide to this game. It's awesome!!!

You made this game look easy! Very nice strategy guide, Good job!!

(+1)

not bad overall. it doesn't take itself to seriously and i liked that.
(+1)

Great gameplay!! You had a really nice setup / strategy going.  Thanks for playing!!

(+1)

I really like the concept behind this game! maybe needs a bit more polish though. sometimes jo would pass through furniture that i couldn't get through.

(1 edit) (+1)

Overall, this is a very fun and intense game, though being rough around the edges here and there. Great job regardless!

PS: We wouldn't mind if you stuck around, our channel could use more audience members

PSS: I apologize in advance for being an idiot and thinking it was a linear path creator rather than a maze builder

(1 edit)

Great video!! I love the intro you created and how you blended the instructions with the game play. This was very entertaining to watch!! I will definitely stick around to check out your other videos. Thanks for playing our game!!

(+1)

Enjoyed myself a little too much lol!

That was hilarious! Great job on the first night!! Thanks for playing and sharing this gameplay!! 

(+1)

damn joe kinda hits different

Awesome video!  You had a really good strategy going. Thanks for playing our game!!

his butt stank

(+1)

This game made me rethink my entire existence... *RAGE* but in all seriousness this game was genuinely fun and I could see myself playing it off camera. I can't say that about a lot of the indie games , so keep up the good work!

 

Great video!! That was some pretty intense gameplay! You definitely don’t want your heart to stop… next time you play, make sure you have a defibrillator ready just in case.  Thanks for playing!!

(+1)

let me know when you dropping new levels

We are thinking about making another game pretty soon for the 7 day roguelike game jam.  We will get back to you!!

(+1)

wooooooo!!!!

(+1)

This game was pretty good! Actually had to use my brain keep up the good work! 

(+1)

Great video and well done! Just be careful because as you may have noticed, Jo can turn around really fast!!  Thanks for playing!

(+1)

Try as I might, there is no containing the thiccness of Jo

That was a fun video to watch! I liked your advice at the end on how to keep Jo from coming over to your house. Thanks for playing!!

(+1)

Thanks for the fun!


Thanks for playing!! You had a pretty good strategy going, good job making it through the first night!

(+1)

I decided I should give it another try! felt that I needed to complete this game! so I did! AWESOME developers! what a great game to have fun with and rage yourself with! 

(+1)

Wow, you came back with a vengeance!! You can hear the keyboard going, your APM is through the roof.  That was some amazing gameplay!!  Good job on finishing the game!

(+1)

how do i move baricades

From the footage I’ve seen, that may be the hardest thing to figure out in Jo’s house!  You must go on the 2D Map by pressing ‘M’ and then move it by left clicking the mouse and drag it while on the 2D map.

(+1)

This game really uses your brain meat. Watch tackle this brain teaser

Great video!! Good job making it as far as you did! You had some good lyrics going too for Jo’s house! Thanks for playing!!

(+2)

Aside from being really funny, the game uses a really interesting mechanic to be really challenging.
Here is my take!
love the game btw.

(+1)

Great video! Thanks for playing our game!! You had a pretty good maze going. Good Job!

(+2)

Unfortunately Jo bested me because I am terrible at your game haha. But man I had such a good time playing what I did!


(+1)

Great video and thanks for playing!!  I noticed you mentioned John Wolfe as soon as you saw the house… this game is actually part of a game jam by John Wolfe with the house itself being the focus of this game jam.

(+1)

It's funny because I just got done watching John's video with Jo's House in it regarding this game jam and I saw your comment. Congrats on getting most popular submission!

(+1)

I didn't beat this game BUT I loved the idea and overall concept! I did get scare myself a couple of times too XD Keep up the good work!

You actually had a really good maze going! You just couldn’t seem to get out of Jo’s way!! Excellent video, thanks for playing!!

(1 edit) (+2)

Fun game, I beat it normally. I then big Brained the shit out of this game and beat it without moving any furniture.

(+2)

Wow, we are impressed!! Jo told us that he is pleased that you didn’t disrupt his living conditions.  Well played!  Very cool video!

(+1)

Haha I kept telling Jo that it deserved a premium pay grade.

(+1)

I finally did it... After many hours of trial and error, I found the perfect system to DEFEAT the ABOMINATION that is Jo.

This game is seriously so fun, I'd love to see more added to this, new houses, new mechanics, all that good stuff. You have a truly unique and enjoyable game here!!

(+1)

You did it! You beat Jo’s house!! This was an amazing two part series with montage and everything!!  I really hope someone makes a music video out of the whole voice changing thing because that would be epic.  Good job and thanks for playing!!

(+2)

One of my subscribers said he's gonna add a beat to the autotuned portion, I really hope he does LOL

(+1)

this game is one of the most unique games iv played on itchio iv never seen a mechanic like that and the design of joe is just funny this game is a really neat resource management game definitely worth playing it takes a surprising amount of strategy to keep jo in the house but its all worth it because of a little thing at the end that's just great if you want to see my full reaction to this game here is the video I made on it

 if you checked it out I appreciate you and consider liking and subscribing it really helps my channel grow 

Great video! I must say, you were so calm and collected that I started rooting for Jo!  There were so many close calls in there it was crazy!  Good job and thanks for playing!!

what's happened with him

(+1)

I have returned developer.... the deed is done lol

Loved the video, it was very entertaining!  Good job keeping Jo in the house!! Well played!
