Patch #12 - 07/21/2017
Thank you so much for your patience. This build has taken a long time to arrive. Here is the latest build of the Paranormal Unreal Engine 4 remake alpha. The game is still a work-in-progress. Updates will be coming more frequently (seriously), adding more scares, story, and overall improvements to the experience. This patch has been focused on expanding the scares, adding more story elements, and overall experience.
Currently, this build is only available for the Windows version of the game. The Mac version of this build has had similar issues to the previous one. Once I've fixed those issues, I'll make it available alongside the Windows build.
The previous build SHOULD work with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Today's build is 64-bit only at the moment. Windows XP isn't technically supported, but there may be workarounds that I am unaware of.
(If this patch hasn't shown up for you yet, try reinstalling the game or waiting a bit and restarting Steam.)
Remember, the Unreal Engine 4 remake update will be free to everyone who owns the game.
These past months have been VERY busy for me. Between working hard on Paranormal, moving, having a baby, battling depression, and many other things---I've been swamped, but I'm confident this build of Paranormal is a big improvement. After reading so much commentary in the community about the frequency of updates, I've decided the most responsible and overall best thing I can do from now on is to release more frequent updates that are smaller in size. Many of you have been telling me that you'd rather have more frequent updates and I plan to deliver on that. I know my track record for update frequency is lacking, but I am working on improving this. You have all been so incredibly awesome and continue to be. Thank you so much for continuing to support Paranormal, me, and my family. I can't wait to scare you all more in future updates.

What still needs to be done?
I have the story's plot and branches all planned out, but not implemented fully into the game yet. The game currently has a bit plot progression, but not as much as I intend there to be when it's done. This will be changed in the future.
More scares. Way more scares. And more randomization, both big and small.
More interaction with the environment.
And most importantly, whatever feedback all of you give me will help shape the game's future.
This patch is dedicated to the horror filmmaker 'George A. Romero'. Watch his films.
“If you can endure a half hour’s worth of me screaming and squealing — possibly more of the latter — as horrible and traumatizing things happen to me in what’s easily the scariest indie horror game I’ve played this year (and I’ve played a lot) then you’re going to love this.”
“Some horror fans may want to wait for Paranormal to become a more polished experience, but even unfinished it's packed with frightful and inventive ideas.”
Anyone and everyone is free to record, stream, or post video of Paranormal and its gameplay, as long as the person/entity/ghost does not sell the actual game. Monetizing of gameplay videos for this game is totally fine. If YouTube flags your video as containing copyrighted content, tweet me and I will do everything in my power to clear it up.
