Paranormal is now available on Desura! Vote for Paranormal on Steam GREENLIGHT! PARANORMAL HAS NOW BEEN RELEASED! Version 1.2 is available NOW! PARANORMAL: THE TOWN announced!

Posted by on

PARANORMAL 1.2 IS NOW AVAILABLE ON DESURA


PARANORMAL: The Town -- The first FREE expansion pack announced!
WE HAVE A NEW KICKSTARTER FOR PARANORMAL: THE TOWN!

Paranormal is finally fully released! Paranormal 1.2 contains many bug fixes, as well as a new experimental gameplay mechanic called Stains. Stains are paranormal hotspots that have a small chance to appear throughout the house. Are they dangerous? Only one way to find out. See the changelog below for more details.


PARANORMAL: The Town -- Paranormal's first free expansion pack will, in essence, be a sequel to the base game. Since it's pretty much an entirely new game, it will take quite some time to complete. The more copies of Paranormal sold, the more funds we'll have to make The Town quicker! Here's a feature list:

  • An entire town to explore with randomly generated content.
  • A new storyline with new characters, including a new main character.
  • New gameplay mechanics (will elaborate at later date).
  • Still played in the found-footage style (like Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch Project).
  • Confirmed locations in the town currently include: A highschool.
  • The story will be related to the story from the base game.
  • If you like Silent Hill, you should be excited-that's where we're taking some inspiration from.
  • More story-driven experience while still maintaining the random nature of the game.
  • More features to be announced at a later date.


Changelog:

  • Added new gameplay mechanic: Stains.
  • Added one new ending (minor).
  • Tweaked Unabridged Mode for better pacing.
  • 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.

What happens when you try to make it full screen? Try pressing ALT + Enter to switch between Windowed and Full Screen modes.

Hey Matt! I love your game! I hope you don't mind that I wrote a small article/review on it. [If you want the link to it, let me know.] I really like this game and I have a lot of friends on that site so I wanted to spread the word. Do you mind if I leave the article up so others can read it or do you want me to take it down? No one can find it by searching yet unless I get your approval to do so. I think you deserve more sales and I get 70+ reads on all my articles daily. If you want me to take it down, I will do so immediately. I only have the beta at the moment and I think it is EPIC!!

Alright thanks :). I can't seem to post the link here, but so far (10:20AM) it has gotten 285 views. The funny part is, I read your reply and opened the article an hour ago. xD. 285 views in 1 hour. I hope this will help boost traffic in your site. I think everyone needs to give the game a try. :)
