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.

I just played this for the first time, and I got to say that it was pretty damn scary. I have a high threshold for getting scared by games and movies, too.

@houghtob123, the game didn't look scary at all to me when I watched the trailer as well as watching someone else play on youtube, but actually playing it in the dark with headphones was on a whole new level.

Hello, MattDementous, I just downloaded the beta and will be playing it soon. So I can help you with producing this game I want to comment on it and possibly give constructive criticisms. Is there a specific place for those types of comments.

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.

Also you should add some more detail to the house to make it look more like its lived in, unless of course the character just moved in. Than its the opposite story. But why are there those puppet people (whatever they're called) in the house?

The poseable dolls are there because the main character is an artist. I'm glad you enjoyed the game though! I'll take your suggestions to heart :D

You should make it in the backstory.

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.
i hope that you work more around these issues as you will be looking at a winner mate. keep up the good work. im looking forward to more updates
