House Flipper has a friendly challenge for April Fools’ Day It’s April Fools’ Day which means you get a tidal wave of dumb jokes and pranks all day on the internet. Game developers like to get in on the action by teasing fake updates to their games. Sometimes these jokes become so popular that they end up in games eventually. The best game “pranks” are when the studio just goes all out and actually makes the comedy update playable right from jump. Frozen District has updated House Flipper with two new places to renovate that might be familiar to fans of a certain 90’s TV show.

It’s “the one with the sitcom levels.”
