Hugo's House of Horrors

Hugo's House of Horrors is an adventure game developed by David P. Gray and released in the early 1990s. The game is a text-based adventure with simple graphics, and it gained popularity for its witty and often tongue-in-cheek approach to the horror genre.
The story of the game revolves around the main character, Hugo, who receives a letter from his girlfriend, Penelope. She informs him that she has been kidnapped and is being held captive in a haunted house. In a typical damsel-in-distress scenario, Hugo sets out to rescue her.
