  • The Blood Team released Weekly Blood Development Updates on the 3D Realms website, and said this about this level:
    • Update: 07/19/96: Jay has almost finished his House of Horror level. It lives, it breathes, and is scarier than the darkest levels of Hell. We know, we've been there and kicked ass... Kevin has been creating some new gore and bodies for the House of Horror level.
    • Update: 07/26/96: Jay finished off the House of Horror level and created the game script for Blood's first episode.
    • Update: 08/09/96: More internal BloodBath testing on Dark Lab and House of Horror.
    • Update: 09/20/96: We aren't saying who the second innocent is, just that he fits in with the "DARK CARNIVAL" and "HOUSE OF HORRORS" level themes.
    • Update: 10/14/96: The House of Horrors and the lumber mill are getting the most attention though, adding lots of stacked 3D areas.
