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.

Quite good, looks good too. The bathroom scene was quite scary. To make the game more scary, I think you should make it a little more grayish or only a few dominent colors in each room (it is too bright/colorfull in some areas I personally think). Also maybe a tad darker. Add some creepy and suspensefull music. Maybe you can draw some ideas from this ancient game; Gamespot.com (the areas are eerie)

I won't add music, since this game is all about immersion in a real world, where the player is truly there. But as for the color theme, you make a very good point. I'll do something about that. Thanks! (by the way, the 7th Guest is AMAZING and one of my favorite classics and completely underrated!)

Not sure what the issue is, but when looking at certain objects (e.g flowers and those wooden human dummy things) it looks as though they're blurred, as if I need to have 3D glasses on to see it properly, it hurts my eyes to look at them. Is this intentional?

It's meant to look like a low quality camera. The effect is still a work in progress.

Thank you very much for the response. I understand the effect you're going on, it's a shame it takes it toll on my eyes. It's a fun game and scares the hell out of me. Very well done indeed.

Thanks! I'll add an option to disable the effect in the settings menu for you :D

That's incredibly kind of you, but be careful not to bend over backwards to every comment players make :P

It's an issue a few other people mentioned too, so I figure it'd be a good option to have :)

I think there some pretty nice jumpscares and the graphics are okay too. But something is really weird about the atmosphere. I don´t really understand the game.
