What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Partly to receive player input and partly to continue to expand the game, which recently underwent a change in emphasis and an expanded set of locations. More time is needed to add additional locations, and there are also plans for additional devices for the player to use.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately four months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final version will have more locations and more devices for the player to use, as well as an expanded help section (including the Spook Inspectors Official Field Manual) and hopefully several in-game sources of information which the player can search for clues about each location (a simulated web forum for the group and a local historical society).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has seven locations to investigate and a total of eight devices to use once the player reaches the upper ranks (less than that when the player first begins a new game, of course).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will gradually increase as more features are added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback will be important for refining the gameplay and adding any features requested by players. Feedback can be sent to: contact@starving-indie-developer.com”

February 20

New build

-- New and (hopefully) improved intro when starting a new game.
-- Hand-held devices no longer display a shadow (which some people interpreted as the player's shadow).

A known bug was discovered but not fixed yet: If the player becomes even slightly faint and then quits the investigation, the "you lost consciousness" screen comes up even though the player didn't lose consciousness. No harm is done by this (you still get full credit for evidence, etc), but it may be confusing. A likely cause is known and so hopefully this will be fixed by the next build.

February 19

New build

New build with following changes:
- Another significant adjustment to rank requirements (a lot lower than previously) which means some players may find themselves being promoted suddenly after their next investigation after updating.
- The amount needed for the next rank is now shown as a percentage (e.g. "You are now 50% of the way to the next rank") after each investigation, as requested by many players.
- Another RNG adjustment which should make it easier to find evidence.
- Some other adjustments and fixes.
- A rare but severe bug was discovered: on rare occasions a location may simply not have any ghost spawns at all after a certain point. Since it's so rare, it's difficult to determine what causes it, but players can avoid it as follows: If you can't detect any EMF anomalies after a few minutes, just quit the investigation and come back, which resets the spawn parameters.

  • Variety and replay value. Randomly-generated paranormal activity.
