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


Features:

  • 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.

I think Matt "The Creator" does not have a time to complete this game. Maybe he is "busy" ? But how about to all the kickbackers that gave some bucks to this game ? Is he going to abandon this ? :(

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.
i hope that you work more around these issues as you will be looking at a winner mate. keep up the good work. im looking forward to more updates

@JamesAbels All I know is that there were likely tons of handshakes that went on.

@JamesAbels I will program a special hell for Unity Elite users.

@lizzyf620 Pretty much this: T.co

12hours 35mins ago

@JamesAbels We'll see how things proceed. Definitely going to be interesting.

@egesagin I'm still sticking with the randomizations and such, I just mean expansions will be their own scenarios (still randomized as well)

16hours 32mins ago

@HurdyIV The Town might end up being split into several scenarios V/H/S style. Could alleviate workload + increase variety.

16hours 34mins ago

Paranormal will probably end up being like the V/H/S movies,in the sense that there will eventually be several found-footage style scenarios

16hours 35mins ago

@ZincAwesome I have a feeling glitches during testing will lead me to making scares better on accident.

18hours 29mins ago

@ZincAwesome definitely. It's why I'll likely keep certain glitches in the game.

@AnaLena_x Thank you :D
