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.

GREAT!

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

@Aevynne Wouldn't have it any other way, bruh.

@Aevynne I'd prefer a small headquarters with one of those cute indoor fountains, free snacks, and a small team of friends to work with :D

May 21 2015, 11:44pm

@EEManio what happened to that non-JP Operation Genesis sort of game that was being made? That's something I'm excited for.

May 21 2015, 7:59pm

@Aevynne I've been eyeing Seattle as a potential city to move to in the coming years. If I could afford it now, I'd move there and hire you

May 21 2015, 7:57pm

@EEManio possibly. Probably. Most likely. Unless initial reception is abysmal. I'm willing to wait until it's finished/almost finished

May 21 2015, 7:53pm

@Aevynne Yes!

May 20 2015, 9:16pm

@carolynmichelle The Pazaak mini game was so good that someone made a desktop client of it that lets you play online with real people.

May 20 2015, 9:16pm

@HurdyIV That said, I can relate to dev's urge to show off super gorgeous early builds & the unfortunate trouble it can cause upon release.

May 20 2015, 9:07pm

@HurdyIV We all assumed the game would be great, & it is, but I'm not entirely okay with the gfx downgrade. I'm hoping for enhanced edition.

May 20 2015, 9:02pm

@EEManio I wish. That's incredible. I want that and a raptor.
