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.

It should be on your start menu. If not, go to the directory you installed it in and find the Binaries->Win32 folder and run UDK.exe

This bug is reported :p. You need to press exit and start the game again. If you wait you will get a error and the game shut down.

First off, great game, love it :P but one question and one "complaint" 1. Is there a way to get into the basement at the moment that I am completly missing? and 2. probably been asked a milion times but any chance there could be an on/off thing for the various graphics options? just pressing the button and hoping its on/off can be kind of annoying :P

*Edit* after acctually looking at the release logs I would assume I just am not working it out for the basement, yay for me being silly

You can read the notes and at day four or three you will see a note outside the basement if you read all the others notes. This is a old bug but sometimes the door open if you read it like one to three times.

The numbers are kinda bugged to sometimes, if you do not get the numbers at the bathroom is not on the way to the addict either :(. You will get the numbers at both place when is activated.

Basement key is in the safe, you can find the unlock code in certain parts or different day's sometime's in the bathroom looking into the mirror, other time's near where you go up into the addict on the floor..
