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.

Sorry, I tried the demo but couldn't understand what was going on at all!! - Are there any instructions?

For some reason most of the time the camera kept waving about on its own, especially when anything happened I was trying to look at- From the moment the game started there always seemed to be about 5 ghostly things going on at once & the time limits were so short I ended up having to run round everywhere instead of nervously exploring the house... Then I suddenly just couldnt move & there were noises, I floated up & then fell to the floor, & then a guy in futuristic armor appeared in front of me I could control with the keyboard, and nothing else beyond that!

Tried playing again, and when I went to bed what looked like an anime character with icicles appeared and then it cut to a shot of a trophy cabinet with some weird trophies and no explanation of what any of them meant...

Am I missing something here, is any of this explained somewhere?

At one point I got temporarily locked outside- it ate up 2 battery pieces just doing that! Not to mention when the fire alarm kept going off how long it took to find that to shut it up. Are you just meant to ignore the spooky things and just go past them, are they meant to just be a distraction ?

im on mac i meet the minimum requirements and it downloaded just fine but when i tryed to start up the game it would say the game is not responding(like when a windo freezes and the computer runs diagnostics) and im forced to close the game. It seems like a really cool game and i want to play it so bad. any suggestions.

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.
