What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Hi, Fat Dog Games here, the publisher of Apparition. We originally wanted to release the game completely on Halloween, but the reality is Apparition will require more work. Our goals for Early Access:
1. We'd like to check if the gameplay mechanics are clear enough for gamers. Any bug reports would be appreciated too.
2. We're going to add a story layer to Apparition (i.e., notes scattered around the place) and we are eager to hear the audience's feedback.
3. To do a console port of Apparition, we need to rewrite large portions of the game's code. We're going to give gamers access for this build too, and we'll be waiting for bug reports and general feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Two to three months.”

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

“We're going to add several in-game notes left by persons who visited Green Creek forest in the past. Through these notes, gamers will be able to uncover the tragic origin story if this haunted place. We're also going to add more languages to the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is almost finished. It has one gameplay mode, one gameplay environment, and all the ghost and demon mechanics.”

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

“To appreciate people's help, we'll set Early Access price lower than the retail price.”

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

“We're going to use the Steam forum to talk with gamers about Apparition and to react to their feedback swiftly.”

Game Mechanics (Part 3)

Let's talk about the game’s mechanics, part 3

The phase of escaping and hiding from demons is crucial because it gives you an idea of what these bastards see and hear. But then you think: maybe I should be stealthy from the beginning and remain unseen. Congratulations, you just discovered another layer of Apparition's gameplay.

So, next time when you hear footsteps or just have a gut feeling that a demon will appear in a moment, you go away from light sources, crouch in the bushes, hide your candle and wait. And here it is - a demon majestically walking among the trees, for the first time unaware of your presence.

Finally, you can take out your photo or video camera and record the daemon, earning more and more points with every second. Feels good, right? Now, your next task is to decide, when to hide the camera and retreat to the car before your protagonist loses sanity or something kills him.

About This Game

First-person survival horror with ghosts, demons and Spirit Board. Set in a fictional, haunted American forest, Green Creek. Use your camera and audio recorder to prove the existence of the supernatural, putting yourself in grave danger.



During the night in the forest, you fight for more evidence of the existence of ghosts and for your own life.

Speak with the dead with a Spirit Board. Use your camera and audio recorder to register them, putting yourself in dire risk. There’s no defense against the ghosts or demons other than hiding.




The more traces of ghosts you record, the more points you earn. Use them to upgrade your gear and access new places. But you have to get out alive to keep them.
