A fully dynamic haunting-experience. Experience the horrors of a haunting that's never the same twice.


Features:

  • Free Content Updates FOREVER: Paranormal will receive free content updates that add new locations, stories, scenarios, scares, gameplay mechanics, and more! You will NEVER have to pay for DLC in Paranormal. The game's content is planned to double or even triple with each major content update.
  • Collectibles: In your bedroom, there's a shelf where all the collectibles you find are displayed.
  • Sleep System: Sleeping in your bed recharges your camera's batteries and also has a chance of triggering other events.
  • 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.

Is there a free test version of this anywhere? I'd love to give it a go but I wanna know that it'll run before I start throwing money around :P

You can download BETA 4 from indieDB (though make sure that your computer meets the game's minimum requirements before buying anyway)

That would be cool if you could catch glimpses of those mannequin things running behind things (pillars, statues, other rooms) but only to see them in their normal poses when you go to look at them

Read a comment, that would be a great piece to the game! maybe add little items or significant symbols that would relate to like the best horror games out there, rather its a big game, or indie game, or small mini one, that would be cool. Seeing a Slenderman page somewhere in the basement or in the house would be very freaky and awesome at same time.. or same camera as Paranormal Activity used/picture.. i mean tons of items could be thought of.

Either way, great game, good job Matt, and keep you the great work.

I have really bad specs. I have a Pentium 4 3.06ghz (HT not enabled), 2gb ddr ram and a 7600gs agp. Will there be an update considering older computers? I only get the camera's battery bars and nothing else.

I'm sorry, your computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements :( I'm always working to improve the game's support for lower end computers, but it will definitely require Shader Model 3 support (I'm not sure if your graphics card supports that)

My graphics card is a nvida geforce GT 2gb, my laptop is pretty good so it should work

Lowest Rated (10 agree) 5/10

reasons being:
You have some really good jump scares but the littles ones after that dont make much of an impact to scare me. im not feeling overwelmned.
