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.

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!!

check out my hilarious video on this game 

(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!

(+1)

By the end of this, my heart was racing, my face was beet red, and I was coated in a thin layer of sweat. I haven't experienced rage of this magnitude in a very long time. Let me just say, I don't agree with my own harsh statements that I made at the end of the video. This game is actually genuinely fun and feels like a very unique experience. I will be back and ready to finally beat Jo's House.

(+1)

So close… so close… you almost beat the game!! This video was nothing short of a masterpiece.  The voice filter at the end gave us a true insight of what was going on in your head.  You may be mad at Jo but you will always have a place in his large heart!!

(+1)

I will be back... Jo may have broken my heart temporarily, but he also stole it. I can't stay away!

(+1)

i know this game bout to blow so road dust don't mind if i post this again please lmao

(1 edit) (+1)

I just spent the last 3 hours recording myself trying to beat this and I hate this game with a burning passion now. Thank you for making it. Video coming tomorrow.

Edit: I got so angry that I accidentally switched on my voice changer towards the end of my playthrough and now I hate/love this game even more because of it.

(+1)

Jo is a fascinating human being. Glad we could help him out and protect him and innocent civilians from Jo-rollin' related injuries! 

We absolutely loved your excellent gameplay video!!  Jo coughed up a hairball from one of the pies… I think your cat may have sat on it! Very entertaining, thanks for playing our game!!

(+1)

Hilarious new video up on this game your gonna cry laughing put hours into this 

Awesome video! Thanks for playing our game!!  I'm sorry Jo wasn’t so nice to you.

Can you make it in browser?

he won't........

oh

I can't download :/

(+1)

Gave it a funny Let's Play, Since I am a Pro Gamer, I beat it in my first try

(+1)

Wow, I am very impressed!! Your gamer skills are on point!  Thanks for this amazing playthrough video! I put it at the top in the game description as the playthrough video for those who don’t believe that this game can be beaten.  Well done sir!

(+1)

The game scene is like: the open house

Very good observation… Jo is the one who bought the house that the guy was selling in that game.

(+1)

CRAZY CREEPY

Yeah Jo sure does have a way of creeping up on people. Thanks for trying out our game, it is much appreciated!

(+1)

gg :*

(+1)

That's THICK!!!
Great Job on the game, loved this entry and hope to see more of you! 

Awesome, thanks for checking it out!!

(+1)

This was so fire LMAO!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

That video was awesome and hilarious.  Thanks for playing the game! I will definitely subscribe to your channel.  This is our first game and it is very cool to watch someone play it like you did.  I will give you a hint in case you want to finish the game… The only way to get Jo to chase you around is to go close to him… then he will start laughing and come after you.
