Los Angeles, CA. (January 30, 2022) - Eek! Games is celebrating the holiday season once again with their second seasonal DLC party pack for the wild and satirical puzzle party simulator House Party.

 
Last month, following the overwhelming positive player response for a permanent version of House Party’s Halloween Holiday Update, the Eek! Games team released the House Party - Halloween Holiday Pack, a permanent free DLC for players who “like their parties spooky.”

 
The House Party - Winter Holiday Pack follows a similar design; created as a permanent free DLC version of House Party’s Winter Holiday Update, this seasonal add-on is described as fitting for partiers who like their parties “cheery” and “festive.”

 
“Love both holidays? You don’t have to choose,” says House Party creator, Bobby Ricci. “Since we’re implementing the toggle on/off feature the player community requested, you’ll be able to go to the main menu and switch on/off whichever holidays you’re feeling like throughout the year on a whim. It should feel super convenient and add a lot of fun variety to the party.”

 
In the House Party - Winter Holiday Pack, Madison’s house is filled with festive decorations, snowflakes are falling outside, partygoers are bundled up in Christmas-themed hats and holiday sweaters, players can throw snowballs at other party guests, and there's a brand new hysterical short side-story quest featuring “Santa” Frank.

 
The House Party Winter Holiday Pack features festive new seasonal decorations, like:
 

  • A Snowman

  • Pine Garlands

  • Hanging Lights

  • Glowing Candy Canes

  • Star-Shaped Lights

  • Snowflake Window Decals

  • Lightly Falling Snow Outside

  • And Much More Decorations To Come…

 
It also features holiday costumes and accessories, such as:
 

  • Santa Hats

  • Elf Hats

  • A Festive Sweater

  • And Many More Costumes & Accessories On The Way...

 
“Winter was even bigger than our Halloween update. We implemented a lot of feedback from players - especially from our Holiday Feedback Survey - and added some really amazing stuff, like a Frank sidequest, achievements, and more cosmetic variety,” says Bobby Ricci. “We’re going to take it slower on the holiday events following this, just because we have our exciting next celebrity mystery guest on the horizon now, but there’s still plenty more exciting holiday content planned for the future!”
 
The House Party - Winter Holiday Pack will be available as a free download for all players in Q2 2023. It is wishlistable on Steam and the Epic Games Store now.
