A fully dynamic haunting-experience. Experience the horrors of a haunting that's never the same twice.


  • Free Content Updates FOREVER: Paranormal will receive free content updates that add new locations, stories, scenarios, scares, gameplay mechanics, and more! You will NEVER have to pay for DLC in Paranormal. The game's content is planned to double or even triple with each major content update.
  • Collectibles: In your bedroom, there's a shelf where all the collectibles you find are displayed.
  • Sleep System: Sleeping in your bed recharges your camera's batteries and also has a chance of triggering other events.
  • Flashlight (camera light): Creates a bright, short ranged light that casts dynamic shadows.
  • Newer sound effects: I've totally redone the sound in the game, optimizing it for surround sound or headphones.
  • Controller support: The game will launch with full XBOX 360 Controller support, as well as native Mouse + Keyboard.
  • Dynamic Haunting: I've revamped the dynamic haunting features from the tech demo I released, adding multiple outcomes, dynamic triggers, countless variables, and an action-reaction system. This will make your experience with the game much more unique and memorable, without missing out on anything important.
  • First-Person Camera: Much like in the movies 'Paranormal Activity' or 'The Blair Witch Project', the viewpoint will be that of a camera being held by a person (the player). Effects like camera shake, pixelation, video distortion, audio distortion, and motion blur will all be present thanks to the camera screen-space shader I built for everything.

Hello Matt!
I would like to inform you that you owe your previous partner "Edvin" a considerable amount of money. You have violated the contract by not paying him the money that he is by law entitled to.
We have made several attempts to contact you for over half a year and if you do not respond to our messages we will have no other choice but to take legal actions. We want to avoid this for both parties sake but if there is no other option, this is our only choice.
So if you were to simply respond to these messages, we could discuss it like civilized people instead of hiding from your problems.
Thank you! Have a nice day!

Lowest Rated (10 agree) 5/10

reasons being:
You have some really good jump scares but the littles ones after that dont make much of an impact to scare me. im not feeling overwelmned.

@EEManio Dino hybrids would be awesome for Dino Crisis final bosses though

Aug 30 2015

@EEManio Still not sold on dino hybrids. I find them to be unnecessary. Dinosaurs are wondrous enough already. But Indominus was cool though

Happy birthday, Mike. T.co

@EEManio would be an awesome side-quest line in a quirky mature fantasy RPG

New additions to my X-Files collection! Ordered from a reddit user from the X-Files subreddit. Stay spooky. T.co

@EEManio I experimented with it in UE4 (and UDK a few years back). It made me realize how skillful RE2 and REmake picked their angles.

@KingMidas35Gmng Can't wait to scare you more once the Paranormal Unreal Engine 4 remake update is complete :D

Aug 26 2015

RT @KingMidas35Gmng: #Paranormal why you so scary!? @MattDementous your game is satan! Period! T.co #Paranormalgame #Hau

Aug 26 2015

@EEManio At least, that's what I'm hoping for. That game deserves a nice makeover.

Aug 25 2015

@EEManio Older capcom games on the PC were really strange in their install process. Maybe the raw textures are exposed or easily extracted?
