Paranormal is now available on Desura! Vote for Paranormal on Steam GREENLIGHT! BETA 9.3 is available NOW!

Posted by MattCohen on Sep 22nd, 2012

BETA 9.3 IS NOW AVAILABLE ON DESURA!

9.3 fixes a ton of issues found in BETA 9.2 and also adds some content. College has me very busy, but I'm always making time for game development. I'm beginning to add light switches throughout the house. I'll probably add more functionality to them in the future (seeing things only visible when the lights are off, etc.). See the changelog below for more details.


Changelog: 

  • Updated system requirements. 
  • Improved Tiered-Haunting system.
  • Improved materials.
  • Improved menus.
  • New intro cutscene.
  • Added light switches.
  • Replaced placeholder wall guy with Manny (mannequin
  • carving).
  • Fixed misplaced note reading.
  • Fixed broken rose petals.
  • Fixed safe opening animation problem.
  • Began working on replacing TONS of high-poly models with
  • more detailed and optimized models.
