Story:

Noelle's grandma has recently passed away, and it was found in her will that she donated her house and her cat to her. She's just itching to go check out the house, because, hey, it could be nice living in such a big one!
She arrives and notices some things are very out place, such as some doors being locked and her grandma's diary along with some torn pages on the ground. Upon picking it up, lightning strikes the house, turning out all the power. She then realizes that things here might not be explained with normal reasoning.

Gameplay:

You play as Noelle, a young girl who has a fear of the dark, but an itch for adventure. Throughout the game you will solve puzzles to progress through the house to get the electricity flowing again in order to escape. However, solving these puzzles does not come without a cost. You will have to outwit monsters that have been brought to life through your grandma's diary in multiple ways. Thinking too slow will bring you to a most terrible end.

Features:

  • FIVE different endings!!
  • Fear system that will always have you worrying about panicking and dying of sheer loss of sanity.
  • Item combining system that allows you to mix items together to obtain new ones, adding a whole new level to the puzzle solving.
  • Pixel-by-pixel, 8-way movement, allowing a more intricate gaming experience.
  • Quick time events that require your brain to think quickly and efficiently.
  • Voice acting by the lovely Audrey Acomb.
  • 95% Original Soundtrack!


Please report any other bugs you may have found in the comments section.

Abandonment

So we are officially abandoning this game, no more updates will be made.
We are putting our full time and effort in a new Action RPG called Final Judgement, which we will have a full beta testing stage so we can limit the amount of bugs next to zero. Grandma's House was definitely a huge learning experience in the fact that we need to do beta testing and put more time and thought into our development.
I would also like to say that if you have reviewed the game in a previous version than what it is right now, that you review it again. Most, if not all, of the bugs have been fixed, and there are 5 different endings. Thank you very much!

I've tried to launch the game multiple times, but I keep getting the same error:

Script 'Resource Tester' line 0: Errno:: EACCES occurred.
Permission denied- C:\windows\Fonts\WinterthurCondensed.TTF

I've also tried reinstalling RPG Maker XP and rebooting my laptop, but nothing seems to help. I'll try deleting and downloading again, but I'm not sure it will change anything.

Hmm that's very strange... it's been working for everyone else.
I would advise you to not play it until I get V2 out though, because that's when it'll be a lot better, more bug free.

Most likely, your problem is that you need to run in Administrator Mode.
To do this, right click on the executable file and hit properties, then go into compatibility tab and click "run as administrator" and it should work.
There's a script that installs a font and it seems that you haven't given it permission to install, so that's probably the reason.
Hi there! I was really interested in your game, so I tried it out just now ( the second version ) and.. I think there's a new bug with the first monster?

I tried to run into the house and bring it inside since I figured that I had to kill it by tripping it into the tub of electrical water, but kept running into the door and wouldn't go through it. ;;

so the monster kept running into the door?
yes there are some issues with the standard pathfinding for rmxp. you have to get just close enough to him to lure him inside the doorway for it to work. RMXP's method consists of the monster constantly walking towards you, even if you're behind a wall, object, etc.

Yes. It's just that I've tried a lot of things before I came to ask about it. I've waited for the monster be be directly behind me, I lead it around the garden a couple of times... I'd walk and not run away, etc. I've even stood directly in the doorway, and the monster would be right in front of me (close enough that if I took a step forward, it'd kill me), yet he still wasn't able to walk through for some odd reason. My sister has tried to lure it through the door as well, to no luck.

I'll look into this.
Can it go through any other doorways? Are there any other ones it gets stuck on?
Its probably a stupid mistake on my part, but I cant seem to get it to work.

Ah shiz I forgot. I'll add a download link for that one sec.
How the heck does the monster keep getting me? I do exactly what it says on my screen

Is it the first monster? You just click down and the sequence of you moving should happen and you should run to the left as soon as possible then run down.
I should write a strategy guide for this... probably.
I think I could just watch the playtrough from Fomar0153 (if the content is the same in the newer version), but it reads like he has more problems with lags, so... other issues. And I don't really want to spoiler me.

My problem is: The second "monster". I have no idea what to do with this thing. It ran into the ventilation-thingi and got stuck, with a strange sound, and then it stopped moving (This can trap the player in the room). Then I went to the spot where he starts chasing me and... he respawns. I think this is a bug.

Btw, I don't like that the lamps turning off every time I switch the floors (for example if you want to save the progress).
And the generators are kept in the inventory, even if you used them already - which is super-confusing. And some times you can't tell if you picked something up, because there is no sound or colored words; you just think she observed a situation. These are small things, but after a sort length of time they turn out very annoying.

Also: Moving the ventilation-thingi is pure pain! More as one time, it overshoot (moves 2 tiles) and lands on a place where you need big effort to move it away again. Just because I accidently ran against it (pixel-movement, hourray). Yes, you could just switch between floors to reset the position, but then the lamps turn off.

I should write a strategy guide for this... probably.

Just design the game a little bit better :/
I got the same problem.. the second monster keep respawning and the game is stuck there.. maybe a bug :\
Hello! Uhm, I was able to grab the key to unlock the diary, but I don't know what to do afterwards...

Yeah honestly guys I fix one bug and it spawns other ones :| I really don't understand why the generators have been staying in because they should in theory go away, I didn't change anything in the eventing. The second monster should go away too because I didn't change anything in the eventing.

The troubles of being a game designer, man.
I'm really gonna' have to grind this out when I get more time. I just keep on getting more bugs that shouldn't be there because they weren't there before, but they're there anyway.
Oh so for the second monster you're meant to send it into the fan? Hhh
Wait, no, I did that, but it gave me a game over.
NO NEVER MIND IT'S FINE NOW
Hey Redd,

Good idea behind the game. The monsters need a bit of work (I'm sure you know that one judging by the comments I've read hah) and it's incredibly irritating to have the lanterns turn off on you when you switch floors!!!
I tried to find the page to go with grandma's book but to no avail I can't find it ANYWHERE and have wasted all my matches and medicines trying to find the blasted page.
Help a girl out? Tell me where that other page is and for god's sakes leave the lights on!

The lanterns are supposed to turn off ;) forces you to do it very wisely.
As far as the monsters, with that big of a map, that's as good as they get! I wish I could have used different sprites though... there just wasn't enough time.
The page you are looking for is located in the tall gray box during the cat sequence.
Something's wrong.

What all do I need to tell you? Print screen?
