You're a person with a camera inside a haunted house. Will you survive? Every haunting is unique! Experience the fear!
indieDB Page: http://www.indiedb.com/games/paranormal
We hit our goal of $800! Keep on funding the game! We still have time left to raise more money!
$20 or more will get you a free downloadable copy of Paranormal when it's released!
BETA 5 AND BEYOND IS AVAILABLE FOR PLEDGERS OF $30 OR MORE!
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.
This project has been worked on completely in my own free time, often late at night due to school. If we can reach our funding goal, I'll be able to hire a team of developers to aid me in my work on the game. This would mean more content, locations, gameplay elements, and improved graphics. Anyone is free to play the beta, but the final product will be a commercial release. We need your help to make this unique indie project mature into a unique and successful game. Thank you so much for your support!
The game is planned to launch with both a Mac and PC version.
Yes, but not in the way you'd think. The story is more of a backstory to the house. Details of the story can be learned from notes. You'll find the past repeats itself in horrific ways...
By pledging at least $30 you will gain access to every beta (Beta 5 and beyond).
There will be a Desura version and a Steam version (and likely an optional 100% DRM free version available to those who request it). There will be absolutely no Activation limits or constant-online DRM. Having played many games that had intrusive and annoying DRM, I can safely and openly say my game will absolutely not have that. The Steam version will be the same as the Desura version. The Desura version will be the same as the 100% DRM free version. There will likely not even be any serial numbers needed to activate the game. Just install and play. Forever.
