Hugo's House of Horrors is an adventure game for DOS. It uses a game engine similar to the early Sierra adventure games. It was designed by David P. Gray, released in 1990, and is the first game in the Hugo series of games. The story is rather typical: the girlfriend of Hugo has been kidnapped and taken into a mansion. The game uses a haunted house theme with various Halloween and horror movie references.

This was the first game that I ever wrote a full walk through for, not only including how to beat the game with a full score, but also the entire script, a FAQ, and various bugs.
