      I'm so sorry I've been silent. I'm working hard on The Town, as well as the original game. There is currently no alpha, but there will be as soon as it's ready. I have no time estimate on that. The Town turned out to be a lot more ambitious than I originally thought it would be, having redesigned it several times and expanded its scope. The project has progressed very far, but I've done a horrible job of communicating that to all of you and for that, I deeply apologize. I'm not very good at managing my kick starter page, but I'll try harder. You all deserve updates on what's been going on in development and I intend to show you. Thank you all so much for your support. It honestly does mean the world to me.

      I have to agree with my fellow backers on this one. More information is better than nothing. While I understand that the original game is receiving tweaks and the like, what we supported was "the Town". Is there a working beta? Or even alpha? Have you focused mainly on the original game? Have you been savagely brutalized by a pack of bears? Any word helps. I'm not one to say "I paid money, gimme gimme gimme", that's not what this is about. We understand, kickstarter projects have ridiculous end dates and delivery schedules (so far only 2/5 projects I've backed in the last 2 years have released Alphas or Betas) and most of us accept that. We want to know what's happening though. Anything beats nothing.

      Cheers,"
      ~Bryan

      Hello Matt,

      I completely understand that you're working on the original Paranormal and updating it's content. However, perhaps if you intended to continue working on the original game seemingly more than "The Town" you should have waited to have this Kickstarter. You've received $6,968 from backers for the project and, to be honest, the project hasn't seemed to progress very far since it started. As someone who contributed a larger amount of money towards your goal, this is rather disheartening. But I'm sure it is somewhat disheartening for many of the people who have backed the project with any amount of money, big or small.

      Perhaps it is just a lack of updates, and as Christina Franks mentions, this could be solved by you simply posting more updates. You did say in your last post that you would, however it seems that you have not.

      Given the success of your original kickstarter, I believe that it would be much better if you were to post more updates here to maintain your status as a successfully kickstarter'd indie game developer so that people are more likely to back your projects should you have another one in the future.

      I'm looking forward to seeing an update on the game's development progress and hope that you'll provide one soon.

      Thanks.

      @Matt Cohen - So what happened to the upcoming updates you mentioned in your last update posted on Dec 31, 2013, which was 5 weeks ago? You stated, "I think we’ve decided to release updates on, or close to the 1st and 15th of every month." I guess you didn't "think" too long about that. We should have had 2 updates by now (on Jan 15 and Feb 1) with a 3rd one on the way for Feb 15. I don't care about counting days between updates that you do publish to this project, but I would very much like to see something—anything—from you in the way of communication. I would think that the other 306 backers of your project would also like to get a status update on how the game development is going, which milestones have you reached since your last update from Dec 31, what is your development schedule time-wise, do you have a release date for the final version of the game (a ballpark date would suffice since software release dates are always a moving target and you are now a good 7 MONTHS behind schedule as per this project's "estimated delivery date"), and how did Steam Dev Days go for you guys? I hope you enjoyed Seattle. We'd love to hear about it. Even if you do not have a lot of changes to document as Release Notes regarding development, we would still like to hear even that much from you. And your presence here—your occasional visit to say "hi" and "thanks" to us for our money—would be greatly appreciated not to mention professional. I look forward to your next update so that I can see how my dollars are being spent. Kind regards to you.

      I'm sorry it's been so long since there's been an update. We've been very busy working on The Town. I can confirm that there is a news update on the way. If you haven't received your Paranormal key yet, please message me and we'll get it sorted out as soon as we can.

      Creator Christina Franks on November 28

      Considering it has been over a month since the project owner logged into his own KS project, I would really like for him to issue an update to his backers. What's going on with the game? What milestones have you achieved thus far in the designing and coding of the game? Do you have any idea at all when the game might be finished?

      Matt, where are you? You really need to communicate with your backers. I am starting to feel like I am throwing money away when I back a project and the project owner disappears with my money. Please give us an update on the status of this project. Thank you kindly.

      Creator Matt Cohen on July 4, 2013

      Don't worry about it. I don't feel pressured. Everything's fine :) I can understand why you'd ask about a release date--I'd do the same :3 You guys and gals will be the first to know when it has one, I promise! :)

      Anna: http://egamer.co.za/2013/06/interview-matt-cohen-on-paranormal-the-town-a-free-complete-expansion-to-an-exceptional-indie-horror-game/ "When it’s done. I want it to be perfect and that will take time.". So let's assume 07/2013 was for the base game and don't pressure a project creator into giving away a release date. My experience as a backer of around 60 KS shows this helps no one and makes nobody any more happy.

      Creator Matt Cohen on June 29, 2013

      Unfortunately, I don't see it being finished by July, but I can definitely announce that July will be full of previews and updates on progress! I want to make sure The Town is perfect, and I don't plan on letting anyone down :)

    19. Icon_asaga.small

      Creator Anna on June 29, 2013

      We're still aiming for a July release for The Town, right? :P The original game is fun and spooky though

      Creator Christian Breitenstein on June 29, 2013

      Good that I came by and saw that Paranormal was sent already... Desura kinda declined telling me that :-)
      The game has been sitting around on my inbox for a week and will soon be played now. Thank you :-)

      Creator David Ma on June 25, 2013

      Nope. I still haven't gotten mine. If you check the earlier post, he said that he was working on it and it would take "a couple of days". Apparently these couple of days is over a week.

      Creator Anna on June 23, 2013

      Did anyone receive a copy of the game yet? (the original)

      Creator Justin on June 19, 2013

      Hey Matt I was just wondering if you got my PM on here about who I was giving the Paranormal game on Desura. When the survey first came out I didn't know anyone that had a Desura account but after it I was able to find 2 people who wanted the game.

    31. Rob.small

      Creator Robert Spizzirri on June 14, 2013

      I made a Desura account just for this. Super excited.

      Creator Matt Cohen on June 13, 2013

      @David Ma I'm going through all the surveys that have been sent in so far. It could take a few days, but I'm working on it, don't worry :)

      Creator David Ma on June 13, 2013

      @Matt First off, I'd like to congratulate you on a successful funding! I received your survey a couple days back and I haven't gotten any notification about a shared google drive.

    36. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Matt Cohen on June 11, 2013

      @elfenleid If you'd like, you can create one for free. But Paranormal will also be available via Google Drive (on the survey, put in your email address and I'll share a Google Drive/Docs folder with you that contains the game!). You will have lifetime access to that folder and EVERY new version of Paranormal will be available there. No CD-Keys or anything, just the game installer :D
