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.

No offense but this doesn't look scary.

By saying "Look" it probably means you haven't even played it. Its more creepy than scary as of now. But then again it is in an early beta. Personally I find it quite amusing. I'm pretty sure it will get better when the attic and basement are put in.

Yes by "look" I do mean I have not played it. It just doesn't look interesting enough to take up my bandwidth. But I guess I will give it a try and try to change my opinion.

As long as you give the game an honest chance, all is well. It may not be scary to you, or it may surprise you and actually be scary. Either way, at least you tried :D

I gave it a try. It was actually rather good for the short 5 minutes that it allowed me to play. Also, when your done I hope it could be a bit more optimized - than again this is for indies. Looking forward to the progress and hopeful destruction or increase in duration of the demo time. Tracking.

I am going to ask a question I'm surprised no one has brought up yet (Unless it's already stated) but will this game be free when its done?

When it's finally released, I am hoping to sell it on Desura and/or Steam. The price will be VERY reasonable (maybe 5 US dollars). Obviously, nothing is for sure, but that's my goal.

hello Matt, i own a Mac and i found ur game through a guy named TheBeerCake who made a video about it on youtube.... It would be amazing if u could make a Mac version of ur game....

P.S: I love the concept of ur game and its like a Paranormal Activity video game...i can already tell this game will go pretty far when it releases and again, if u could make a Mac version of Paranormal, that would be amazing

As far as I know, Unreal Development Kit doesn't have Mac support. I'll research this after Paranormal launches for the PC, though. I don't own a Mac, but I do understand that many people do own them and would love to play my game on them. So this is something I will research. Thanks for the interest!
