Description

NOTE: BETA 5 for the PC is now free to EVERYONE! These betas are more like demos of the full game (which is available on Desura). Enjoy! --- This is the fourth beta release for Paranormal. Paranormal is a game where you play the role of a person with a camera inside a haunted house. As you play, you'll experience a truly unique haunting experience. No two hauntings are the same. ------ BETA 4 has some issues. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT! I'm releasing this for testing purposes. I will add more to future beta versions. The first floor of the house is nearly complete, and the second floor is also nearly complete. Changelog and more can be found in the description. To everyone having crashing issues: I'm updating the game to a newer version of UDK, so hopefully the crashing issues will be resolved for the final version of the game!


Please help me get my game published on Steam! 
BETA 4 Changelog:
Added new screenspace Material camera shader effect (helps make the game look like it's seen through the lens of a camera).
Fixed the sleep function and animation.
Disabled double jumping and dodging.
Added a fully voiced loading screen that gives background on the player, and shows the controls.
Added a journal entry from the house's previous owner. Find it if you can.
Fixed the Ouija Board and added a new scare with it.
Added a new scare in the bathroom.
Fixed hallway scare.
Increased frequency of some scares, while decreasing certain others.

Beta 4 Current Issues:
The new camera screen effect makes reading trophy titles difficult. Will be fixed in future versions.
Some stock UDK UI elements are still present, specifically a player list and round start 'menu' when starting the game.

To everyone having crashing issues: I'm updating the game to a newer version of UDK, so hopefully the crashing issues will be resolved for the final version of the game! 

Side-Story:
I almost lost ALL the files to the project due to a corrupt UPK file. While I was saving, my power went out and corrupted a vital file that was nearly irreplaceable. I managed to salvage it slightly, but the side-effect is me not being able to edit it anymore. So future updates to previous content will be more difficult and stressful, but not impossible.

Sweet! I was just informed about this mod. Gonna make a video about it tomorrow on a channel called Roofroller, if you're interested in my experience.
Gonna make the rest of our gaming group also play this after the full version is out (I like to make a performance). Just thought I'd let you know!

Currently, the game requires a fairly good computer to run. I'll look into making it compatible with older PC's.

So I can't play it and idk why. It gets to the menu where it tells me to press "E" then when I do it says UDK.exe has stopped working. And in that menu I can see that some of the textures are screwed up and I feel like some stuff is getting cut off. I don't know what to do :/

Instead of running the game full screen, try playing it windowed and see if that helps. Thanks!

I am having the same problem. I get to the end of the cutscene when it says 'enter the haunting' and then it stops running. I have tried it in windows mode and full screen and it does it in both.

This is a problem I believe is fixed in beta 5. Try re downloading the game, sometimes it gets corrupted while downloading.

Redownloading didn't help. What did help run the game was to actially delete all the *.bik files. So, definitely traceable to some problem with Bink. I can run the game now, no movies, but hey, it works!

When i open the game it runs in Windowed Screen, is there any way to change the resolution of the game or to choose full screen because when i start the game i can´t change anything... And it's as if it was in 3D, i can see the 3D effect but i don´t know if it's a bug, or i have to change it somewhere...
I think this game is an awesome idea but i can`t enjoy it with those things i said, thanks.
PD: Im's spanish sorry for my English

The visual effect is emulating a camera recording. It's meant to be that way. Press Alt and Enter at the same time to make the game full screen. This works in most games, including this one.

I have a major issue. It will not download for the life of itself, every time i try it downloads less and less of the installer files before it gets interrupted. I'm getting very frustrated reading the comments seeing it works fine for everyone else except me, with no solution that I can figure out myself. Any suggestions? :(

Most full games are 3-15 GB, so 365 MB is pretty small :)

It's meant to go to a scoreboard. It's just leftover stuff from unreal engine, it should take you to the main game afterwards.

No problem, also there's a problem I've had twice now then when I try to go to sleep it wont let me no matter how many times i try yet it works on and off so possibly something to look at, also the dresser beside the fish tank, you can walk through it.

Please don't think I'm being picky because I'm not I'm just trying to help iron out the wrinkles of what is to be an awesome game!

Thanks for the feedback! This is what beta is for :) In beta 4 I have sleep set at 30 second cooldown, so you can only sleep every 30 seconds. If that isn't the issue, I'll have to investigate this further.
