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.

I don't know if this is just me but, I am using the Xbox 360 wired controller. The sprint button does not seem to work,. The camera motion seen when using the keyboard controls also seems to be mostly absent when using the Xbox 360 wired controller too. Another thing I noticed control wise, is that when I clicked in the left thumbstick the player seemed to stomp on the floor. i have no idea what that is lol.

The Xbox Controls haven't been fully perfected yet. I still have some work to do on them :)

Beta 9 will be uploaded to Desura by Monday (hopefully tomorrow). I'm currently getting feedback from my Kickstarter/PayPal donators. Once I gather all the feedback and make any quick fixes, I'll upload it to Desura :)

Lowest Rated (10 agree) 5/10

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.
