BETA 5 ACCESS AVAILABLE TO PLEDGERS OF $30 OR MORE! MESSAGE ME FOR DOWNLOAD LINK!
I've updated the game's UDK version from April 2011 to May 2012. This process will HOPEFULLY deal with any crashing people have been having from Beta 4. I've also designed a new logo for Paranormal. Also added in is a replacement voice actor instead of the previous one. HUD elements have been tweaked and updated as well. Another addition is the tweaked screen space shader effect. The colors are more desaturated and the game is much darker, adding to the atmosphere. Also added is Mac OSX support for the final version of the game!
