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!


Please help me get my game published on Steam! 
BETA 4 Changelog:
Added new screenspace Material camera shader effect (helps make the game look like it's seen through the lens of a camera).
Fixed the sleep function and animation.
Disabled double jumping and dodging.
Added a fully voiced loading screen that gives background on the player, and shows the controls.
Added a journal entry from the house's previous owner. Find it if you can.
Fixed the Ouija Board and added a new scare with it.
Added a new scare in the bathroom.
Fixed hallway scare.
Increased frequency of some scares, while decreasing certain others.

Beta 4 Current Issues:
The new camera screen effect makes reading trophy titles difficult. Will be fixed in future versions.
Some stock UDK UI elements are still present, specifically a player list and round start 'menu' when starting the game.

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! 

Side-Story:
I almost lost ALL the files to the project due to a corrupt UPK file. While I was saving, my power went out and corrupted a vital file that was nearly irreplaceable. I managed to salvage it slightly, but the side-effect is me not being able to edit it anymore. So future updates to previous content will be more difficult and stressful, but not impossible.

Beta 4 doesn't have the options tab. To go faster on the stairs, hold down Shift while going up them to sprint. I've fixed the slow stairs after all the feedback I've gotten from people hating it. The final version of the game will not slow you down while on the stairs.

oh, ok. But when will the changes on the changelog at "Paranormal"'s IndieDB page, start working? I would like to explore the attic and play with my XBOX 360 controller (i dont know how i could write that, so it would make total sense, since English aint my first language.) Will the full version be free?
thanks for an awesome game!

good to know, im looking forward to this.

I assume that you are making this with the Unreal Engine, but do you script the models etc. yourself? Because i am trying to make my own game in C++, and im not very experienced, but someday...

I make many of the models myself. Some of them are license free and are legally allowed to be used in commercial projects, but I usually try to just make my own. I'm making the game in Unreal Engine :)

It will be in the full game only. The game will be released in a few months. Coding is difficult at first, but I slowly taught myself how. I recommend starting out by editing other people's code and learning how it works before making something from scratch.

Wich programs do you/can i use to code? I have no clue at all how to code.
I want to report a bug too, you can go through the kitchen window.If you jump on the table, you can then then jump through the window. Not sure if this is a bug, since there is a giant figure in the "garden", that look like the figure that is in the kitchen, in the corner with the fridge.

When I run Paranormal or 'UDK' it says it stopped working. I tried running it in XP (Service Pack 2 or 3), I tried running it as administrator, I installed .NET Framework 4, I installed the files from the setup in redist. What shall I do?

So running UDK also doesn't work? I don't know if this works with UDK installed. It might require you not having UDK installed. I could be wrong, though. What's your computer's specs? The game requires at least: A 2.0ghz+ dual core processor, 512MB graphics card with shader model 3, and 2GB of RAM.

In BETA 4, you can only sleep 3 times (I believe). This was an error on my part. The final version of the game will allow a more logical sleeping system.

But sleeping only three times doesn't give me the time to check all the things in the game. Can't you release another one fixing this problem. You don't have to include all the other stuff because i know you'll put it in the full game. So we can have a better and longer experience :)
Anyways, its a GREAT game and I enjoy playing it :D

I still am having the same problem. I get to the end of the cutscene when it says 'enter the haunting' just after he says 'im not crazy' and then it stops running. I have tried it in windows mode and full screen and it does it in both.
