Development has been going on for quite a while now, and the game is nearing completion.
I've added some new features to the game:
Collectibles: In your bedroom, there's a shelf where all the collectibles you find are displayed.
Sleep System: Still in its early stages, but I intend to make sleep an interesting part of the gameplay.
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. You won't run out of film though, since that's no fun.
