Granny is a mobile independent Survival Horror Room Escape Game developed and released by Dennis Vukanovic (commonly known as DVloper). It serves as a Spiritual Successor to a series of Slender Fan Games that DVloper was previously known for, Slenderina. It was initially released on November 24, 2017.

The Excuse Plot is that you are locked up in a house by Granny, a zombie-like killer grandma(?). You must find items which will let you escape the house, as well as avoid Granny. Be careful, she hears every sound you make and will even leave Bear Traps on your path.

Despite the low quality that would normally leave a game ignored, Granny, in early 2018, received major attention and became an indie Survival Horror hit in the gaming community for its still effective Nightmare Fuel and unique incorporation of Room Escape Game mechanics.

On September 6, 2019, a sequel, Granny: Chapter Two, was released, introducing Granny's new companion and Spear Counterpart, Grandpa. You also have to escape a new house, as well as avoid the two of them. Download it from Google Play or App Store.

Granny and the series in general provide examples of:


Tropes specific to Granny: Chapter Two:

  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer: Chapter Two replaces the Garage with a giant Sewer, where you can escape by boat and be Eaten Alive by a Sewer Monster.
  • Animalistic Abomination: The Sewer Monster, who resembles a cross between a one-eyed and three-tentacled octopus and lamprey. It inhabits the sewer and likes to eat humans.
  • Anti-Frustration Features: Fortunately, Grandpa cannot hear well like Granny, making it easier to avoid him, especially if either him or both are toggled.
  • Cane Fu: Grandpa's main weapon is a bloody walking cane.
  • Easter Eggs: Chapter Two has Granny and Grandpa do more activities than just walking around, which some players can catch while sneaking around. Granny sometimes washes the dishes and plays piano, and Grandpa sometimes sings and feeds the Sewer Monster.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Grandpa can at times be heard shouting "Granny!", which implies that Granny is her actual name.
  • Iron Maiden: Granny and Grandpa keep one in the house. You can kill one of them by enclosing them in. They'll later kill you with it.
  • Spear Counterpart: Grandpa.
  • Stun Guns: One of the many ways to defend from Granny and Grandpa.
