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.

Will the Desura download automatically update to Beta9 once you have released it? Also, you mentioned having a fully reflective mirror. Perhaps a scare of some kind of scare where your reflection could turn the opposite way you do to turn around. Sure it could only happen once or twice but when the player catches that out of the corner of their eye, Jesus, it would be freaky. :)

It will! However, my kickstarter and paypal testers have access to beta 9 before the Desura users (also allows me to fix more issues they find so the Desura version will be smoother).

Damn, I was hoping to get a new video up of Beta9. I am sure any extra fixes will make it well worth the wait though.

Hey I got to the basement and when some person with no jaw appeared my screen went white for 30 minutes then I closed it and I always die on the fourth day.

The basement ending is unfinished. You're supposed to die on the fourth day. I'm debating whether to have a "good" ending. I feel it wouldn't fit the tone of the game. I'm experimenting around with these ideas.

*shrug* It's your game. And I agree, it wouldn't fit the tone of the game. It's supposed to scare the **** out of you, so having a moment where you think, "Hey, I might live!" and then have it taken away, might contribute tothis game. :3 Just saying. <_< Also, in the basement, I got stuck reading the diary by the mirror. I have it recorded, actually. :3

Depends on your definition of "Good" for an ending, Matt. Anyways, it's a bit iffy on the pacing end of things and heavy handed (although I can sort of understand why you started in the middle/end of the haunting), but you've got some interesting ideas going on, your presentation's mostly fine, and I look forward to seeing where you go with it.

OMG, JUST GOT THIS!! Want to ask MattCohen, when will it be released? I have watched videos of this and I am SO happy to own this now!! Also, will it keep being patched once it has been released? And lastly, how many more Betas will there be?

It will keep being patched, yes. I'm planning on having at least two more betas, but it all depends on the feedback I get :)

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.
