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.

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.

To claim your Steam key (if you own Paranormal on Desura), visit this URL: Desura.com
And find Paranormal on the list. Click keys. Your Paranormal Steam key should be there.
To activate it on Steam, open Steam and press 'ADD A GAME...' and then 'Activate A Product On Steam'.
Enjoy!

Matt I didn't get my key, I checked my Collection, even have Windows viewing on.

Just says "Test" to the right of the key listed there when I click on keys and I tried that key, but it didn't work, it's only the Desura Key.

You have your games filtered to a certain operating system. To fix:
Go to the info page of any game on Desura
In the top right it should say Platforms - Windows, Mac, Linux (some may not be there, depending on the game--screenshot: I.imgur.com)
Click on Windows
All games will now show up in your collection, including Paranormal

Maybe I didn't make it clear enough when I said:

"even have Windows viewing on".

This is kind of BS.

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.
