In 1976 the owners of the Amityville house fled their home,abandoning belongs in the middle of the night they claimed the house was possessed by an evil and dangerous entity. In the months following an investigation was launched by local news and a group of paranormal researchers led by the Warrens (The Conjuring) was conducted. You take the opportunity to enter the house alone and investigate of the events were real or a hoax in hopes of finding the truth.


Explore a full recreation of the house and its grounds. Built using photo reference the game recreates as much detail as possible including furniture,wallpapers and items. You will be able to open every drawer and closet,examine items to discover the history of the house and visit the much talked about 'red room'.


-Detailed environment,sound design and period setting.

-Emphasis on story,atmosphere and slow building horror.

-Unreal 4 engine with potential for VR support.-Secondary game mode for exploring the house without game events.

News 2 comments

In the last few months lots of new information of about the Amityville house has been coming out,with new photos of the interior from various years of house's history.Since a large goal of the project is a real as possible recreation of the house progress has been made full updating the game environments to reflect new information.

Testing has also began on 360 / VR capability's,below is a short test video showing some panoramic images put together as a preview for future fully animated interactive trailer.

Test render of a lit version of the house interior using full baked lighting.One possibility is that this could be the basis for a secondary crime scene exploration mode.

Work in progress on the bathrooms,I've been carefully sourcing the few photos that exist of these areas as well as tracking down any items I can find a reference for the modelling of props e.g the air-con.

The third floor is now also well into progress,with the new house model in place these rooms are now more accurate and the ready to be developed. I've been adding additional detail to items like door models and polishing some of the materials (layers of dust / dirt will be added to the final textures to make it look a little worn).

I had no idea this existed until I stumbled upon your Facebook page, about an hour ago. I have spent the last hour amazed at the photos! I am a long-time Amityville fan. I was in the theater when the original film hit the screen in 1979.
It was sad what happened to the Defeo family. They had their problems, but no family should ever see such tragedy. As for the Lutz, fact or hoax, I do not know. I guess one will never know for sure what happened in that house with the Lutz family. Too many different stories, some saying yay and some saying nay. All I know is that I have had nightmares about moving into that house, yet I love it. I have a bitter sweet love for it!
In short, you are doing great remaking this house. That is what will make this game very special, the detail. So you keep up the great work, take your time, BUT HURRY UP! I wanna finished copy! lol Be sure to let us know when it comes available, at least those of us who are rooting you on. :) Cheers!

Thanks for leaving a comment!. I'm still very early in development but reading up on every detail and perspective of the Defeo / Lutz story while working on the project and putting a huge amount of time into the re-creation of the house. Hopefully it will something very interesting for horror fans and those familiar with the Amityville story.

I so love this! I'm now following this story of Amityville for 8 or 9 years now! I really love the movies but i always wonder how the real house looks like inside. But i never found something realistic as this. And in virtual reality as if you are inside the house itself! If you play this game, what would you able to do? will it be haunted or will you just walk around in it? Btw did you watch "the conjuring 2"? maybe the opening scene from "Amityville" can help you with it! ^^

Thanks.There will be a main game mode with the haunting and maybe another mode for just exploring the crime scene. I have seen the Conjuring 2,I'm using lots of photos including the crime scene photos to recreate the house exactly as it was in 1976.

Omg awesome! just like you are in the movie, but then the real house! and will there be bodies or no? it would be really scary if you could live that night :o or just that as an intro. And also the same portrets as the defeo's? or what do you mean with photos? thanks for the comment!

It wont show dead bodies or photos,I don't want it to bad taste and not sure legally if that would be an issue. You will have to explore / spend the night and unlock the RedRoom. The photo's I'm using are of the house just to re-create it as close as possible.

I'm using Unreal 4 and aiming to make it fairly detailed so don't think suitable for phone really - just PC. I don't have a release date yet,it's just me making it in my spare time so it's a little slow.

Any idea of a release date?
