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.

Awesome! I love these kind of games! However the amount of events seem kind of small as well as the house. How many more rooms do you plan to add? Also, After a while i cant seem to sleep in the bed anymore, is this a glitch or is there a limit?

I believe you can only sleep in the bed 3 times. I plan on changing this, however. Also, I plan on adding plenty of new rooms. Confirmed additions are: The Attic, The Basement, and The Yard.

It would also be cool to add things like closets and a garage as well, would you consider adding one of those?
Oh and one last thing, about how many events do you plan to include in the whole game?

I'm very interested in adding a garage, but have no immediate plans to add one. After I get the previously mentioned things out of the way, I will totally add a garage. How many events? There are currently (about) 30 haunting events that have at least 6 sub-events in each, making every experience unique. The final project might have twice as many. Perhaps more, perhaps less. But I intend to keep adding content!

Perhaps when the house is done and everything you could have updates which just add events, because games get pretty boring if you know all of the events, like every time i go in the bathroom I expect to see overflowing sinks with blood and disturbing baby face.

BETA 4 has been released! This is the most stable version of the game. I'm already hard at work perfecting things. Depending on the feedback I get from BETA 4, the final version of the game MIGHT be released next.

A news announcement and changelog for BETA 4 is awaiting approval. Expect it soon! Also expect BETA 4 soon! It's mostly a polishing release, but it still adds tons of new stuff!

Great video! I'm going to fix the bed issue and the double-tap to dodge issue. For some reason in Beta 3 it only let's you sleep once. I've since fixed that issue. I'm also going to be adding some story elements down the line. I'll make sure not to rush it. You and the rest of the community are really helping me iron out the issues!

Thanks for the video! The sleep system hasn't been implemented yet. I need to fix the controls too! This video has helped me debug a lot of this stuff. Very helpful. Thanks!

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.
