3:00am Dead Time is a horror game like no other.

With hundreds of phenomena, dozens of paranormal beings, randomly generated behaviour that responds to your actions,huge scenes with lots of details and secrets to explore and discover, and hundreds of little evidences and clues that will help you to understand the history of each place, this will be the most complete horror game for the PC

  • Control a complete team of paranormal researchers as they go all around the world looking for the most amazing and scariest evidence.
  • With a tactic gameplay not seen before in a horror game, you will control your squad and will need to organize them just like in the old Tactic FPS classics : Swat4, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six. Give them instructions, or jump directly into their minds and take full direct control.
  • Set up cameras, microphones, lights...and take a shot! Watch the best evidence, and capture amazing phenomena for the delight of your audience.
  • Ask for help, invite mediums, demonologists, UFO specialists and other professionals to get the job or to invite tormented souls to the party.
  • Interview the local people to know their stories. Many times, they will give you a little push on the right direction.
  • See multiple scenarios, each one offering countless hours of gameplay, thanks to our AI system, which will react differently every time you play, and will adjust to the mood of the player. From haunted houses to ancient and abandoned churches, and from the city to the most mystic forests and fields, the world is yours to explore.
  • You will never get bored, because this is not just a ghosts game. Its a game about the paranormal universe, and because of that, you will be able to see much more.

Looks interesting I was going to do a LP but since the demo is pretty limited I didn't get much done also it was so dark could barely see anything even with the flashlight. Has potential thoughhad a creepy voice say beware to me but couldn't make out the rest of what it said.

My vid is not much because I'm not the kinda person thats gonna go running into a crop field for no reason. lol

Yes, this demo is a little short, because we wanted to offer just a sneak peak to the public. As we are still in closed beta, we can't offer the full experience for free. This will be released in the closed beta, and in the final game once it is done.

But we are glad to see you liked it, and we hope to see you here often, because we are going to have more news and media about the game!

Thanks for your comment,

Sadly, our PC broke and we lost some of the work while moving to a new one. We had problems restoring the backups, as we explained in the Recording Systems Article. So, Beta 0.2 will have a little delay in its release, but we have now our work again, and we keep going with the project, as you can see in the latest images and news.

Thanks for your support, and don't worry, we are going as fast as we can with it!

Medium: 20 to 30fps
Low: 40 to 60fps

Processor: Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T6500@2.10GHz

Congratulations put this idea was incredible too great for min not worry too much about the graphical engine but with the gameplay!

Don't worry, I can understand you really well. Thanks for sharing your results, and don't worry about the performance, because this was a stress scene, pushing the recording system as far as possible. We are happy to see you liked the idea, and about the errors in this scene, well, as this was just a test scene and not a final level, the character you move (which is just a capsule)as well as the scene are not complete, but all of the errors, glitches and bugs are being corrected for Beta 0.2.

Thanks for your support and help!

Heeya, I've made a little Let's Test of the Demo :) It's in German but I hope there will be some people watching it though. Maybe the game will become a little more known then, even if I'm a Let's Player who just started :P
Hope you enjoy it though!

Danke! (google translate is a lot of help...)

We didn't understand a word of your video :P, but we really hope you have enjoyed the demo (you enjoyed it, right?), as the little sneak peak it is. If just one of us was abe to speak German... anyway, thanks for your video, and we would like to ask your permission to link it to this profile, and add it to our gallery (there are gameplays in English and Spanish, and a gameplay in german would be great).

So keep an eye here for more news and thanks for your support!

I just finished testing out the Recording System and it was amazing! Had a few jumpscares too just from the noises :D lol You guys are doing an amazing job, so keep up the great work!

I had a consistent FPS of 200-250 on the highest resolution 1600x900 running on high settings. The lowest FPS it dropped to was 99 so no framerate issues at all. Switching through the different lights didn't affect framerate either. The zoom function worked great too. Same goes for beta 1. Everything is running smoothly.

Intel core i5

Windows 7 64 bit

I hope the progress on beta 2 is going smoothly with the PC change :)

Thanks for your response! We are glad to see that it runs well on your PC. 200FPS is a lot of speed, and this recording system is running in the most demanding way, so it will be faster in the game. It seems that we don't need to change it (this is great!)

And yes, we are going really well with this new PC. The old one was crashing very often, and was slowing us a lot.

Again, thanks for your support, and be prepared for new tests in the future!
