Game Description

Welcome to Granny.

Granny keeps you locked in her house and she will not let you go.
You wake up in a dark room, you have a headache and it feels like someone have hit you in the head.
The only thing that lights up the room is your flashlight lying on a table.

The main door is covered with different locks and now you have to search the house and find keys and other objects to unlock the door and escape this house.
But you have to be careful because Granny hears everything and if you drop something on the floor or walking on a creaking floor she will start running to the place she heard that sound.
You also need to watch out for her bear traps and other things lurking in the dark, like her pets, for example.
You can hide in wardrobes and coffins but be careful that she does not see you where you are hiding.

There is another way to escape.
At the bottom of this house there is a garage. In the garage there is an old car. If you manage to start it and open the garage door you can escape that way.

You can protect yourself from Granny using one of the two different types of weapons you can find in the house. But it only stops her for a while. But it's worth it.

There are five different levels of difficulty.
Extreme, Hard, Normal, Easy and Practice.
If you play in Practice mode, you are in the house without Granny and have the opportunity to try different things without major difficulties. But the house is not completely free from dangers.

Granny gives you five days in the house but you can earn a extra day if you do something for her.
If you have failed to escape after the last day... well, probably you can figure out what happens then.


Good luck!

Game Concept

The game begins with a short backstory: the protagonist comes near a huge house while walking in a forest late at night, where they soon notice something that looks like a rotting old woman or a grandmother which knocks them unconscious with a baseball bat. They later wake up on a bed in a bedroom of the previously mentioned house.

The player has to explore the house, finding items, using them and solving puzzles to progress in the game all while avoiding getting attacked by various enemies such as Granny, Spider Mom, the Spider, the Crow and many other hazards. The player has five days, or simply five attempts, to win the game; getting knocked out sends them to the next day, sending them to their initial spawn location, and after losing on the fifth attempt (or 6 after bonus day), the player loses the game and is sent to a cutscene where the player gets killed (excluding Practice mode). The player wins the game when they make their way out of the house using either of the three available escape methods, each of which are locked by certain obstacles that the player must find ways to remove/disable the locks in order to win the game making the Player out alive escaping.

Granny is the main antagonist of the game who chases the player when they get on her line of sight, can hear any item falling, places bear traps to trap them, and knocks them out when they get close enough to her. The player can hide from Granny using various hiding spots such as under the beds, tables, cupboards, and wardrobes to avoid her chasing them down, however, if they hide while already being chased, Granny will shove them out of their hiding spot and knock them out. The player can combat against Granny using weapons, which some knock her out for a short amount of time depending on the difficulty you are playing at, and some put her at other disadvantages.

The player can customize their experience of the game using settings at the options menu after pressing the '"PLAY" button on the main menu, such as the game's difficulty, having music music on or off, dark fog that shortens their vision range, and a special mode that changes the house's appearance, soundtrack and adds additional enemies.
