Super Surprise Party is a deceptively-cute horror game made by creator "meowmee" in 2020.

The narrator is throwing a surprise party, but nobody else showed up! It's up to you to help get the party together, by partaking in a variety of gameplay styles to gather guests, fix a ruined painting, and collect candy.

Oh, and you must keep your location tracker on the entire time. But that's not a big deal, right?

The game is available to play Here.

This game features examples of:

  • Big Bad: The narrator gets you to do all the tasks to distract you while going to your house to kill you.
  • For the Evulz: The narrator does not seem to have any particular reason for making a whole game just to track down and kill players beyond sheer bloodlust.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: During the game, you're asked to "share your location" with the narrator. At the end, they boast that you've only given them time to track you down in real life. Of course, the game itself doesn't actually track location — but the horror is still there all the same.
  • Gameplay Roulette: The game has three levels, all of which are different genres. The first is a platforming segment where you must find all five party guests; then you do a puzzle segment where you put together a jigsaw puzzle; and finally, you do an item-catching segment where you move to catch gumdrops while avoiding cats and dogs.

  • Interactive Narrator: The narrator is the one who keeps giving you orders throughout the game, and they get very angry if you turn off the tracking.
  • Jump Scare: At two points in the game, a creepy face (presumably belonging to the narrator) will pop up out of nowhere, for only a few seconds.
  • Literal Metaphor: It rains literal cats and dogs from the sky -- along with gumdrops.
  • Rain of Something Unusual: In the third level, it is literally raining cats and dogs- and gumdrops as well.
  • Surprise Creepy: The colors and visuals are all cute and sweet, from the smiling party-guests to the gumdrop rain. But the actual game is a Psychological Horror, with a creepy, short-tempered narrator and a location-tracking gimmick.
  • You Fool!: In a rant that follows the location-tracker being turned off, the narrator refers to you, among other things, as a "fool".

Location Tracking: On
