A twisted tale of loss, revenge, local politics, and pseudoscience (among other things), Night in the Unpleasant House is a branching work of interactive fiction playable on iOS devices.
It's been ten years since your father disappeared after learning a dark secret about his boss, the town's Mayor. After working your way into the Mayor's good graces, you’ve at last discovered the location of his oft
During their night exploring the house, players will try to uncover the secrets the Mayor has strived to bury and find out what happened to their father. Or maybe they won't! Perhaps they’ll instead befriend the Mayor and fully entwine themselves with his cruel reign. With thirteen different endings, the choices they make will determine the player's ultimate fate.
Night features writing and hand-drawn illustrations from Joel Haddock, and leverages Unmapped Path's own Disbound platform for bringing Twine games to mobile devices.
Unmapped Path was founded by Chris Klimas and Joel Haddock in 2016 following the closure of their previous collaboration, Twofold Secret. Unmapped Path was founded to focus more on the development of technology to leverage Twine for deeper mobile experiences, as well as to create games using that technology. Unmapped Path's first project was working with the Shakespeare Theater in Washington, DC to produce an interactive exploration of Othello in conjunction with their staging of the play. They then worked on mobile and Steam ports of Andrew Schneider's Nocked! True Tales of Robin Hood as well as a collaboration with writer J.A. Konrath to create web sites supporting his Stop a Murder
Night in the Unpleasant House is Unmapped Path's first game written and produced entirely internally.
