House Party Review
You probably won’t remember 2020 as the year you went to a house party (unless you were lucky enough before the quarantine). But, a virtual “house party” with horny guests may be exactly what you need to boost your mood, have a few laughs and turn your grey day into a bright, sexy adventure.

House Party scenes
Without giving away spoilers, you’re a young dude that’s invited to a party by your friend Derek. You don’t know any of the other guests, but over the course of the party, you can interact with them. Each character has a unique storyline and some of the stories are intertwined.
The House Party porn game will keep you on your toes, so pay attention to your surroundings and explore every room from top to bottom.
House party Characters
The person you know best in the game is your friend Derek. Madison, the host of the party, and her sister, Ashley, (both students) are the only siblings. The other guests range from students, like Amy, Brittney, Stephanie, Katherine, to an adult film star, security consultant, website operator, sci-fi writer, martial artist and model. Each partier has their own personality, so your interactions with them will be like in real life — you adapt to each person depending on how they act.
If you have an existing Steam account, installation is a breeze. The download is 5 GB. The upside of the game being on Steam is that you can get updates automatically. This is an important point as the game devs release updates on a monthly/bi-monthly basis.
Free and Paid Services
House Party is available as an early access game on Steam for $25 (the price varies depending on your region). Additional content, like custom stories, are free to download and play.
Eek, the developers of the House Party game, have a Patreon and if you sign up, you’ll have access to exclusive content and depending on the subscription tier, you can try out the latest Alpha and Beta versions of the game before they’re released in the stable Steam version.
Graphics and Sound
This is not just another game with 3D renders of some chicks with big tits. This is a true 3D “house party” game you can walk around in. Just by looking at the tech specs you can see that it requires fairly new hardware to run. The screenshots above show the attention to detail, shadowing and overall texture quality. The House Party sex scenes are engaging because you have control over the sex positions and character movements are very lifelike.
One of the biggest surprises for us was the sound quality. Every line of dialogue is spoken by a voice actor. Trust us, this makes the sex scenes even more pleasurable (and memorable!).
This wouldn’t be a complete House Party game review if we didn’t look at game mechanics and gameplay. One thing lacking is a tutorial — you just appear in the house and are free to do what you please (if you can figure out the controls).
To give you a headstart, use “Shift” to move around faster. You interact with people and objects by clicking on them. For example, when you click on a person, you’re presented with options to talk, interact and give them objects (you can check your inventory by pressing “I”).
To move the story along, you need to collect certain items, solve puzzles to start a chain of events, and respond to dialogue prompts. You get hints in the form of social gauges on your HUD, which show you if you’re progressing the story with a character or you did something wrong.
One big recommendation is to save often!
House Party gameplay is smooth and logical and we’d recommend only consulting a walkthrough if you get really stuck. There are dozens of stories to explore and complete. Some quests and side-quests can have a negative effect on certain guests, so to discover every story, you’ll need more than one playthrough since some decisions can be contradicting.
There’s no clear path written in stone that you have to follow. You can talk to whomever you want to whenever you want to. You literally have hundreds of choices and depending on what you choose in the interactions you have — you build the story.
NPCs “Non-Boring Party Comrades”
The party guests and host all have their own unique personalities, which makes the game even more interesting. They react differently to the story choices you make and a single answer can have an impact on the entire party. To understand how close or far you are from getting together with a character, you can look at the social gauges on your HUD.
Custom Story Creator
One of the most unique features of this game is the ability to create your own story or download a story created by someone in the House Party adult game community. The game developers made it super easy — simply download the Custom Story Creator, read the tutorial and make your wildest, sexiest dreams come to life. No programming knowledge required. All the third-party stories are absolutely free!
Hot sex scenes!
Finally, a porn-inspired game with great graphics and some of the best sex scenes we’ve seen. Solve puzzles, find the right items and choose your words wisely — and soon enough, you’ll find heart-pounding, balls to the wall sexy action. Full nudity, blowjobs, handjobs, threesomes and even some guy on guy action.
Note: If you download the Steam version and you find that it’s censored (this can happen depending on your age/country), there’s a free Uncensor DLC available on Steam. While reading the Reddit House Party page we found that some users couldn’t install the DLC, but a Reddit user linked to a Steam thread with a solution.
After getting a feel for the game, we read a lot of House Party reviews from reputable sites and were surprised with the negativity we saw. While the game does have a somewhat sleazy feel (you are after all trying to get in girls’ pants), you have to remember that it’s a game. And compared to other games in the XXX genre, this one stands out to us in graphics, voice acting and gameplay.
As far as we know, the developers are not planning on releasing a mobile version of the game. It’s currently only available for PC (Windows 7+).
Yes! You can download the demo off of Steam (you’ll need a Steam account).
