Average Giants Episode 52 – Spooky’s House of Jump Scares and Adopted


IGM Presents… The Average Giants! A weekly webseries where we play indie games while chatting with their developers. Come watch (and “follow”) the show live on our hitbox channel every Monday night at 9:00pm EDT.


Another amazing horror game, another episode of Average Gamer losing his stuffing! Spooky’s House of Jump Scares was the first game on this week’s docket, and what a doozey it was! The game uses cutesy elements to make a light parody of modern horror games, while at the same time crafting one of the scariest, bone-chilling experiences that we’ve seen on the show!


Don’t let these screenshots fool you, this is not for the faint of heart!

Fortunately we got to wind down the night with an adorable narrative driven prototype called Adopted. Where you play from the perspective of an adorable puppy who influences the world around him and the people in it, changing the story as you do.


The game currently has a Kickstarter campaign going on, as well as a Greenlight campaign!
