Stay Out of the House is a stealth-based VHS style slasher horror game from Puppet Combo that’s a perfect homage to the retro PlayStation era of games.

You awaken in The Butcher’s house, afraid and alone. You need to stealthily outwit your captor and escape his house while avoiding traps and the sadistic and cannibalistic The Butcher himself.

However, not everything is as it seems, and there’s a chance that you might find more than you bargained for – if you keep your guts long enough to explore, that is.

The good news (if there is any good news to be had after you’ve been imprisoned by a serial killer) is that the house is littered with unique tools and items that you can utilise to escape.

Stay Out of the House’s graphics are a perfect throwback to retro gaming with a VHS-inspired polish. They’re reminiscent of the original Silent Hill game or the PlayStation Resident Evil series, but with an engine better suited for the modern era.

The minimum system requirements are as follows:

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1+
  • Processor: x86 32 bit
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Graphics card with DX10 (shader model 4.0) capabilities
  • DirectX: Version 10
  • Storage: 500 MB available space

There’s no set release date yet, but the game should be out sometime this April. You can keep an eye on the Steam page here or check out the game’s official webpage here.
