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.

Then wait till Sept 12 for it to be available for early access

This is not the case for a few people such as myself. Im still waiting on the Dev to contact me regarding my issue. I really had high hopes for this to, but it seems like he either doesn't care or maybe is just to busy to answer. In either case, the people like me who can't redeem it lose out.

Finally tried this out and I'm really impressed! Dev is also really cool about communicating with us, and even got keys out to bundle purchasers before his game was released, I'm impressed.
