Post news RSS Huge Update! (Total Recall)

By some miracle...Parasomnia may actually be 100% more playable by Christmas 2022. Didn't want to jinx it because of all the failed attempts in the past, but Parasomnia 1.5 is going to be a reality! A TOTAL overhaul of ALL the issues that plagued the 1.0 release and BEYOND. Read on! This is the most important update ever.

Okay, I know I flaked out quite a bit. New mods were in the works, new mods weren't in the works...then they were, then there was a comic, then there wasn't...then Half-Rats as a game series was pronounced dead as a concept, followed by a bunch of videos of me crying and chugging whiskey...but then it wasn't. The team is back together. It all started when I realized why the game was so hideously dark. None of us thought so at the time. In fact, I got through a decent chunk of Parasomnia during testing without even using the lantern. Well, we must have all had magic monitors...long story short - Parasomnia is BRIGHTER now. But I couldn't stop there. I opened up the RMFs...and began my descent into madness.

I came down with COVID, but I've been mapping through it, and helping take care of my son. I've been a busy boy - even after losing my job, but while I have the time and the encouragement from my wife, I'm going to do what I can to finally rectify one of the biggest bones of contention in my life. FIXING PARASOMNIA. We will need a lot of help spreading the word, so I'm counting on you loyal Half-Ratters!

Until next time! HAVE A HOT DOG!
