Been a while since I last updated but Amityville '76 is still in active development but slowed progress slightly. Over the past few months worked continued on the environments and additional props were added, since so much is based on actual real life items it's been a lot more time consuming.

Below are a couple of short tests put together,they aim was to try and establish the style I'm going for more clearly and the overall feel of the game.

Currently the key mechanics are being worked on and the only thing slowing the project down,it would be great to get a bit of funding in place to move progress faster since it's currently a one man project. The next step is almost entirely work on the actual gameplay and the more technical aspects that need detailing.

I had no idea this existed until I stumbled upon your Facebook page, about an hour ago. I have spent the last hour amazed at the photos! I am a long-time Amityville fan. I was in the theater when the original film hit the screen in 1979.
It was sad what happened to the Defeo family. They had their problems, but no family should ever see such tragedy. As for the Lutz, fact or hoax, I do not know. I guess one will never know for sure what happened in that house with the Lutz family. Too many different stories, some saying yay and some saying nay. All I know is that I have had nightmares about moving into that house, yet I love it. I have a bitter sweet love for it!
In short, you are doing great remaking this house. That is what will make this game very special, the detail. So you keep up the great work, take your time, BUT HURRY UP! I wanna finished copy! lol Be sure to let us know when it comes available, at least those of us who are rooting you on. :) Cheers!

Thanks for leaving a comment!. I'm still very early in development but reading up on every detail and perspective of the Defeo / Lutz story while working on the project and putting a huge amount of time into the re-creation of the house. Hopefully it will something very interesting for horror fans and those familiar with the Amityville story.

I so love this! I'm now following this story of Amityville for 8 or 9 years now! I really love the movies but i always wonder how the real house looks like inside. But i never found something realistic as this. And in virtual reality as if you are inside the house itself! If you play this game, what would you able to do? will it be haunted or will you just walk around in it? Btw did you watch "the conjuring 2"? maybe the opening scene from "Amityville" can help you with it! ^^

Thanks.There will be a main game mode with the haunting and maybe another mode for just exploring the crime scene. I have seen the Conjuring 2,I'm using lots of photos including the crime scene photos to recreate the house exactly as it was in 1976.

Omg awesome! just like you are in the movie, but then the real house! and will there be bodies or no? it would be really scary if you could live that night :o or just that as an intro. And also the same portrets as the defeo's? or what do you mean with photos? thanks for the comment!

It wont show dead bodies or photos,I don't want it to be..in bad taste and not sure legally if that would be an issue. You will have to explore / spend the night and unlock the RedRoom. The photo's I'm using are of the house just to re-create it as close as possible.

I'm using Unreal 4 and aiming to make it fairly detailed so don't think suitable for phone really - just PC. I don't have a release date yet,it's just me making it in my spare time so it's a little slow.
