Description

Dad's Monster House tells the story of Carlos' journey after he receives a distress call from his father, pleading for him to return to his old home and rescue his dad. As he continues exploring the house, Carlos encounters many terrifying yet 'cute' monsters. As he solves the puzzles before him, he draws ever closer to the truth... Freud once said: "Love and work, work and love...that's all there is." But what of the pain, the struggles that arise when we're forced to choose between our ambitions and love? In dealing with such conundrums, we’ve all likely hurt those we hold dearest to us. For it's often in the darkness that we feel most safe. With Dad's Monster House, I wish to provide those kinds of heartrending memories a chance at redemption. I dedicate it to scientists, to my childhood dreams; to those I love, and to faded memories. I hope that within you'll find the greatest of answers, be they for your love, for science, or dreams. [Gameplay] A sudden call in the deep of night has you return to a house you haven't visited for many a year. You must unravel one puzzle after another: to from within scenes intertwined with memories find clues and get to the bottom of your father's secret. The choice of whether to redeem or ultimately end this sad story lies in your hands. [Features] Instead of going for bright and vivid colors, I have opted for a black-and-white art style. The fragmented narration, plentiful puzzles, and delicate sound designs create an immersive experience where you as the player get to truly feel the ups and downs of the protagonist's emotions. Continue to unravel the story as you collect more items...

    I highly recco all carton games. Having trouble with this one as it’s so difficult to figure out what to do next. The puzzles are easy-to- medium difficulty, and it’s delightful when I put a few things together to advance. But it takes me as many as 30 taps to try putting one thing with another. 1 item in one room, 1 clue in another and a place to use it in a third place. Cotton games generally are much easier to navigate, so I think I’m missing something. Help?

    Love all of these games, this one with a little different twist! Although they provide “pen and paper” I used my phone camera. Loved the logic and the clues. My gripe of reviewers is that if they don’t understand the game, it’s a bad review. Pay no attention to any negative reviews, this is a great game!
  • Really great little game

    I am not sure why more people aren’t reviewing this neat little Indie game as it is one of the most creative games I have played in a long time. The graphics are interesting and the puzzles clever and not too hard. I would recommend having an extra device to take pictures of the clues rather than trying to draw them out on the sketch pad in the game. It has a good map to keep track of where you are going and I had to use it a lot. Folks with a good spatial memory probably wouldn’t need it as much. If you like games like the Rusty Lake Series or the Amanita games check this one out! Oh and make sure you do the little photo album at the end. Have fun.
  • Way to tedious

    The game looks nice but it’s way too tedious and I don’t have the patience to solve all the puzzles.
  • Tedious

    This game, which is beautifully drawn, is quite tedious. Every puzzle requires you to go to a different area of the house, sometimes two different areas, to solve it. The problem is the game does not have a “jump to” feature so you will spend most of your time traveling very slowly back-and-forth. It takes most of the fun away and makes it a tedious process.

    Without going into too much detail, I must admit how deeply moved I was in the end. Moved to tears even. I felt the love of family and the love a son has for his father. If I could give this 100 stars I would. The game itself, aside from the storyline, was obviously incredible as well! ❤️
  • FANTASTIC!!!

    If you’re into indie games these are at the top of the list. These games are like the coolest movies you find and share with your friends, there’s just nothing else like it. The games are full of amazing and obscure references, this one incorporates the accomplishments of scientists into the puzzles. What a cool way to honor science and invention. I would work for this team if I could. Really original. And like others said, this one has a good balance of difficulty. It was a little easier than I’d thought at first, it’s more about continuing to open new areas because most of the time if you’re stumped it means your clue is still behind a closed door. And there is a clue for every puzzle. I spent a day on that bookshelf and I didn’t need to! 🤣

    Everything is incredible about this game, should cost more. The puzzles are challenging yet possible and you have a place to write down clues. The animations are very impressive for a game this price.
