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 there ever be a solution for the "Built with UDK has stopped working" problem? Looks like we´re not the only ones with this problem.
Specs: Geforce GTX 670, Intel Core i5-3570K CPPU @ 3,40 GHz, 8GB RAM.

Can´t we downgrade to an older version? Sad we can not play

AMD FX 6100 six core 3.30 GHz. 8gb ram. Win 7 64 bit. Graphics card is AMD Radeon HD 7700. But i got that only once. I mostly get the Built with UDK has stopped working error. I used to play all the time with these specs and then with the update it disabled my ability to play. Love your game btw. Just wish I can play it! X)

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.
i hope that you work more around these issues as you will be looking at a winner mate. keep up the good work. im looking forward to more updates

@Arsenic13 How do we force Capcom to do this? It needs to happen. I'd rather not play it via emulator for the rest of my life.

Unreal Engine 4 is giving me limitless power over how to scare in Paranormal. This is going to be amazing.
