Indie developer Horror Cam Committee reveals their Unreal Engine 5 horror game, Paranormal Tales, with a Patreon page and a terrifying trailer.


Paranormal Tales is a found footage horror game heavily influenced by Hideo Kojima’s canceled PT and powered by Unreal Engine 5 that premiered with an utterly terrifying new trailer. The first release from developer Horror Cam Committee, Paranormal Tales’ Patreon page features a teaser trailer for the game giving players a brief but unsettling glimpse of what to expect from the PT-inspired horror title.


Paranormal Tales is the first title from developer Horror Cam Committee and publisher Joure, and the debut trailer shows a heavy influence from Hideo Kojima’s cancelled horror game PT. PT was a planned Silent Hill game bringing together the iconic Kojima with acclaimed horror director Guillermo del Toro and actor Norman Reedus, and was teased with a short playable demo on PS4 in 2014. Although PT was ultimately canceled, the terrifying teaser developed a cult following, with fans creating remakes of the horror short in everything from VRChat to Dreams on PS4.

The one-minute debut trailer for Paranormal Tales, stylized as footage from a body-cam, opens at night as an unseen man searches for his dog through a leaf-strewn forest of barren trees. As the man’s search becomes more frantic the camera begins to swing around wildly until finally settling on what appears to be a woman in white who suddenly scrambles, insect-like, rapidly towards the camera. After an attempt to seek refuge in a seemingly haunted house fails, the trailer closes with the woman in white screaming and floating towards the camera from a rooftop. This sort of found footage approach is becoming increasingly common in horror games, and was recently used to great effect in the PC and console horror game MADiSON.

Paranormal Tales’ debut trailer not only delivers some genuine scares over its short runtime, but it also serves as a great showcase for the graphical fidelity available to developers with Unreal Engine 5. The Steam listing for the game promises to deliver hyperrealistic environments for players to explore as they play through a series of self-contained experiences documenting the stories of those who have gone missing, with Paranormal Tales‘ Patreon page promising early access to demos and prototypes for supporters. Letting players take on the role of different characters throughout the game could potentially allow the developers of Paranormal Tales to feature a more diverse cast, countering the serious lack of representation in many upcoming horror games.

For players seeking a terrifying new take on horror games, Paranormal Tales looks like it could deliver a unique and visually stunning new take on in-game shrieks and scares. In an era where big-budget horror titles like the upcoming Silent Hill 2 remake are once again becoming big business, Paranormal Tales indie approach to the genre could help it stand out in an increasingly crowded field. If this spine-tingling new trailer is anything to go by, horror fans are in for a treat when the PT-inspired Paranormal Tales releases for PC.
