Sleep System: Switch to static cameras to watch the house as you sleep. Creepy Sound Design: Headphone users rejoice! Controller Support: Xbox 360 controller and Mouse & Keyboard support. Dynamic Hauntings: No haunting is ever the same thanks to the complex action-reaction and randomization system I made. First-Person Camera: Much like Paranormal Activity or Blair Witch Project, the view is that of the camera. Intricate Ghost Story: Uncover the mystery through journal entries. Graphics: Unreal Engine 3 makes Paranormal look amazing, implementing many of the latest graphical advances. Push your computer (and sanity) to the limits!

Description

NOTE: BETA 5 for the PC is now free to EVERYONE! These betas are more like demos of the full game (which is available on Desura). Enjoy! --- This is the fourth beta release for Paranormal. Paranormal is a game where you play the role of a person with a camera inside a haunted house. As you play, you'll experience a truly unique haunting experience. No two hauntings are the same. ------ BETA 4 has some issues. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT! I'm releasing this for testing purposes. I will add more to future beta versions. The first floor of the house is nearly complete, and the second floor is also nearly complete. Changelog and more can be found in the description. To everyone having crashing issues: I'm updating the game to a newer version of UDK, so hopefully the crashing issues will be resolved for the final version of the game!

Sweet! I was just informed about this mod. Gonna make a video about it tomorrow on a channel called Roofroller, if you're interested in my experience.
Gonna make the rest of our gaming group also play this after the full version is out (I like to make a performance). Just thought I'd let you know!

Currently, the game requires a fairly good computer to run. I'll look into making it compatible with older PC's.

So I can't play it and idk why. It gets to the menu where it tells me to press "E" then when I do it says UDK.exe has stopped working. And in that menu I can see that some of the textures are screwed up and I feel like some stuff is getting cut off. I don't know what to do :/

Instead of running the game full screen, try playing it windowed and see if that helps. Thanks!

I am having the same problem. I get to the end of the cutscene when it says 'enter the haunting' and then it stops running. I have tried it in windows mode and full screen and it does it in both.

This is a problem I believe is fixed in beta 5. Try re downloading the game, sometimes it gets corrupted while downloading.

Redownloading didn't help. What did help run the game was to actially delete all the *.bik files. So, definitely traceable to some problem with Bink. I can run the game now, no movies, but hey, it works!

When i open the game it runs in Windowed Screen, is there any way to change the resolution of the game or to choose full screen because when i start the game i can´t change anything... And it's as if it was in 3D, i can see the 3D effect but i don´t know if it's a bug, or i have to change it somewhere...
I think this game is an awesome idea but i can`t enjoy it with those things i said, thanks.
PD: Im's spanish sorry for my English

The visual effect is emulating a camera recording. It's meant to be that way. Press Alt and Enter at the same time to make the game full screen. This works in most games, including this one.

I have a major issue. It will not download for the life of itself, every time i try it downloads less and less of the installer files before it gets interrupted. I'm getting very frustrated reading the comments seeing it works fine for everyone else except me, with no solution that I can figure out myself. Any suggestions? :(

That's something I have no control over. It sounds like your internet connection isn't stable :(

the file size is massive. 365 mb?!?
can you compress it or something?
just a suggestion.

Most full games are 3-15 GB, so 365 MB is pretty small :)

Are you running the game fullscreen? Try running it windowed, if you are.

thats the same problem with me, when he says "to prove im not crazy" it goes to a scoreboard of an entirely different game. oh and its running in a window

It's meant to go to a scoreboard. It's just leftover stuff from unreal engine, it should take you to the main game afterwards.

I'm having an issue starting the game. I will click to open it and the it will freeze up and come up saying it has stopped working?? I don't even get as far as the main menu. I'm running windows 7 and am pretty sure my laptop is capable of running it. Can anyone help?

What are your laptop's specs? Also, try downloading and installing Net framework 4 (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851).

Thanks for the prompt reply. I managed to get it to work by changing the compatibility to XP SP3 and seems to work now. Keep up the good work!

No problem, also there's a problem I've had twice now then when I try to go to sleep it wont let me no matter how many times i try yet it works on and off so possibly something to look at, also the dresser beside the fish tank, you can walk through it.

Please don't think I'm being picky because I'm not I'm just trying to help iron out the wrinkles of what is to be an awesome game!

Thanks for the feedback! This is what beta is for :) In beta 4 I have sleep set at 30 second cooldown, so you can only sleep every 30 seconds. If that isn't the issue, I'll have to investigate this further.
