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.

Also will it run on a 2.66ghz i7 Macbook pro? It runs games really well but the requirements are rather high for this game.

I don't know the graphics card/chip your Mac uses, so you'll have to compare it to the system requirements. You can purchase the Mac version on Desura (see the purchase links near the top of the page). All Desura owners of the game will get the Steam version for free!

Just purchased, and it only downloads a 53.1mb file, and when I attempt to unzip, its corrupt every time. Any fix for this?

Desura seems to be having major issues with the Mac standalone client. Ever since the 0.9.1 release, users have been getting problems like this downloading it. I'm investigating this issue. My advice would be to contact Desura about it. I'm working to get this resolved as soon as possible. Have you tried using Google Chrome to download it? Are you on Wifi? Sometimes wifi can be unreliable for large downloads.

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.
