We wanted to create the perfect immersive horror game where the user could experience the jump scares in first person meanwhile following a story. With Covid 19 going on people may refrain from visiting haunted houses so we wanted to give our users a stay at home replacement for the same.
What it does
The app allows to play as a Paranormal journalist going on missions to find the evidence of paranormal activities. You play in first person in augmented reality and you have various tools you can use to aid you like Torch and EMP. You help people and with the evidence write your article. < br> In this game you can place the location in Augmented Reality in your room and roam around with your EMP to find evidence of paranormal.
How we built it
We used UnityEngine and ARFoundation to build the app.
Challenges we ran into
This was our first time using ARFoundation and we had to learn its ground plane functionality. Building the UI that would fit the theme and look aesthetically pleasing was also a challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We completed the project in such a short amount of time while stretching ourselves to learn new things.
What we learned
We learned to use ARFoundation for cross platform AR in Unity
What's next for Paranormal
We will be expanding on the story and adding in more levels in the game
