This FPP Horror Will Raise Your Hair

Horror Cam Committee is working on Paranormal Tales, a disturbing horror game with a highly unusual visual style.

Developer Horror Cam Committee and Joure announced first-person horror game Paranormal Tales. The project is generating interest due to its unusual way of presenting the action, which is modelled on video footage recorded from cameras strapped to the filmmaker's body, also known as 'found footage'.

  1. The game is heading for PC and will be sold On Steam.
  2. For now, the developers are not ready to provide a planned release date.

The game will consist of a series of separate sequences, pretending to be video files recorded by various individuals documenting their encounters with supernatural forces. The gameplay will focus on exploration and arcade challenges.

Paranormal Tales is being developed on Unreal Engine 5. As you can see from the first teaser, the way the authors have chosen to show the action provides a very different experience from typical FPP games and should effectively enhance the horror atmosphere.

Not only Paranormal Tales

It is worth mentioning that this is not the only game that simulates video footage recorded from cameras placed on the body of the filmmaker. Two weeks ago, developer Alexandre Spindler showed a similar but as yet unnamed project. In his case, however, it will be a first-person shooter.

Here, too, the way the action is presented seems to provide a very realistic experience.
