The Crush House launches in August

The Crush House

Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Nerial have announced a release date for The Crush House, their 90s-inspired “thirst-person shooter.”

The Crush House is in development for Windows PC (via Steam) and has a release set for August 9th.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:

Jae has scored the gig of her dreams as the producer on 1999’s hottest reality TV show, The Crush House! The demands are high and the stakes higher as she must cast, film, and produce each season. Play as Jae as you capture the budding romances and explosive drama of each unique season in the iconic Malibu mansion. And no matter what, remember to satiate the demands of your rabid audience or risk cancellation.

Each season is unique based on your chosen cast and the ever-changing audience demands. The longer you manage to keep your show on air, the more questions start to arise. What’s up with the cast’s dependence on Crush Juice? Where does the Success Slide even go? Clandestine conversations and some good old-fashioned snooping will help you uncover the truth.. providing the Network doesn’t get in your way.


  • Cast For Each Season’s Run – Choose between twelve eccentric personalities and find your four-person cast for each season’s run. Mix and match conflicting or complementary attractions and watch as tensions run and sparks fly.
  • Quench Your Audiences’ Thirst – Everyone with a television watches The Crush House! From Foodies and Divorced Dads to Butt Guys and… Pharologists…? With dozens of micro-audiences to entertain, you’ll have to be strategic to capture them all.
  • Commercial Breaks Make Cents – Entertainment as good as this isn’t free, so set down the camera and pull up some tasteful TV ads now and then to bring the cash. Spend that delicious ad revenue each night on new furnishings for the house to mix things up for the audiences and the cast.
  • Uncover The Mystery – Explore the house at night while the show’s off-air. Break the rules and engage in forbidden conversation with the cast to figure out the dark secrets of The Crush House!
