Paranormal is now available on Desura! Vote for Paranormal on Steam GREENLIGHT! PARANORMAL HAS NOW BEEN RELEASED! Version 1.1 is available NOW!

Posted by MattCohen on Oct 30th, 2012


Paranormal is finally fully released! Paranormal 1.1 contains many bug fixes, as well as a new Game Mode selection. You can pick between Abridged and Unabridged versions of the game before the game begins, giving you the option to pick the full experience or just a quick scare with less buildup. See the changelog below for more details.


  • Added GameType options: Abridged and Unabridged.
  • Added a new phone call. More to come in the future.
  • Fixed many issues with invisible objects.
  • Fixed some issues with certain endings.
  • Fixed a few crashes.
  • Fixed tons of glitches and bugs.
  • And many many more things you'll have to discover on your own!

    PopMatters wrote:The most interesting thing about it, though, is that I am this character. I’m motivated to record the ghost for personal reasons and that adds to personal fear Paranormal evokes. I already have undeniable proof of its existence, but I want to see what it’s capable of. I don’t care if it hates me. I want to push it further.

Any chance of making the game options say if they are on or off?

Any info on what the difference in the 2 gamemodes are? I assume it means you have a day limit in one mode and no limit in the other?

Anyways keep up the awesome work!

Before each game begins, you pick the mode. Abridged mode is more of a 'quick scare' version that doesn't include the build-up that the Unabridged mode has. Unabridged mode is a more full experience. It has more in-game days, slower pacing, and a few tiny differences (I plan on adding more differences between the two modes in the future).

I agree. They should have it say what settings they are instead of only toggle. I had to go through the config files to change them manually.

Me too. The more votes it gets on Steam Greenlight, the sooner it will be accepted onto Steam :)
