Phasmophobia: Bug fixes, balance changes and new features!
2 : Anonymous2021/03/07 01:30 ID: gq1wtz8

Like most of my friends we've grown a bit bored with it. I love what it represents though. That there's both a huge market for spooky multiplayer games and that the creative use of voice recognition & communication needs to be utilized by future developers more.

There's actually quite a lot of mp spoopy games out there. Like Phasmophobia they're all very janky and b-games, but priced very accordingly. A good way to spend 2-4 hours with friends, but ultimately they are just cheap thrills.

Pacify was decent.

Did we play the same game? I was bored out if my mind with phasmophobia. The voice recognition is laughable at best. The tutorial is ass. Randomly dying is frustrating. A lot of items suck or are useless (i know what they do). A game like phasmo has potential, but phasmophobia is shoverlware.

By communication do you mean how the mic can cut out

Edit why the downvotes the mic literally cuts out when the ghost hunts??? I don’t understand Reddit sometimes

Game is fun but I feel like me and the boys have already depleted it of content. It's really fun when you dont know what you're doing, but once you figure out how it all works it's not as exciting. We're gonna wait a year and see then see how updated it gets.

Yea, once you understand it, the gameplay loop is to find the room, dump a bunch of shit from the truck into the room, see what happens, repeat. Its a good game with friends, but it is very repetitive.

They changed the behaviour of the room temperatures which significantly nerfs the thermometer. Unfortunately, despite all the buffs the game has gotten to ghost wandering, it still seems tethered to one room regardless.

Hopefully the dev announces a map creator tool or something in the near future. Otherwise he's going to kill the game with lack of new content. Especially if he decides, that he wants to work on all the maps. This is one of those games that can thrive with mod support although after asking around in their discord server it almost felt like the dev isn't planning to add any sort of modding tools, which is a huge bummer.

Great game! Great ambiance! Great sound! Lack of new content and can easily get repititive.

ID: gq2itc4

We just RP slightly or call the ghost a punk bitch to try and see what we can get it to do. But yea I agree it’s not what it was when I was new!

ID: gq2g7nc

That’s how the game seems to me, I feel like after one round it wouldn’t be fun anymore because you understand how the game works?

ID: gq45596

Game isnt fun. Might be if someone hit me repeatedly with a baseball bat to the head though.

They need to bring steam workshop integration. Imagine people making maps and ghost AI’s. Maybe new tools. Would be dope.

Until they change how the ghost operates this game will not be scary after the first few hours. Still buy it for a few fun hours though, maybe the income will help increase the dev team.

ID: gq2mokk

Yeah isn’t it made by one guy?

ID: gq2rx8w

There's an entire section of the patch notes on "Ghost AI Improvements." They seem substantial, but I can't say because I haven't played it yet.

ID: gq2xn04

Ask me how I know you havent played in VR

Dev is doing a good job on making small consistant changes and bug fixes..THAT SAID. The game gets old, quick. The lack of variations of board quests, ghosts.. Actually just everything, it lacks. Everyone screams 'but it's one dev!'. Sure, but he could try to balance what he makes or hire someone for map dev or ghost dev or something. The game suffers for the lack of variaty. Fun for the first 5 ~ hours, after that.. Do not recommend.

ID: gq2d6jh

The game has made money at this point, I don't know if it started as a passion project but at this point, he could stand to spend that money on hiring a few people to help him with the game.

ID: gq33m65

Pretty sure the dev is never gonna hire more people. I'm fairly certain he adressed people saying this and had said Phasmophobia is a passion project. Also hard disagree on it only being fun for a few hours. I've spent over 40hours having a lot of fun with my friends

I'm glad the disabled microphone bug in VR was fixed. It was so annoying having to restart the game after every match.

ID: gq2qkoy

Any word on the white outline in VR?

Game got stale fast, really wish there was more because its a blast with friends

9 : Anonymous2021/03/07 08:01 ID: gq2v6cw

I see a bunch of comments saying how they or their friends got bored of the game. I wonder, do you people play a tonne of hours in a short amount of time? I play four or five maps once every week or two with my friends and the game hasn't gotten stale for me.

ID: gq2vybq

The game has been out for a few months, 100 hours is not unreasonable.

I got bored of it, but for some reason my group still play it like it’s new game every time, idk what it makes them come back to it but hey probs for them.

They need to change snap turning in VR to not blink out of existence.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/07 09:07 ID: gq2z6yw

I think people here who say that they are bored are probably non VR players. I still shit my pants everytime I boot this up VR

ID: gq3wms5

After like 5 or 6 games in VR it totally lost the spook, partly because of things like how goofy VR players look when they move, as well as the repetition of every single investigation with little deviation from the standard.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/07 05:46 ID: gq2lfxx

Dope to finally see an update. Like everyone else is saying, It's gotten a bit old because of the lack of new content unfortunately (and part of that is just the fundamentals of how the game works). It sucks because I've sunk probably 100 hours in desktop and VR for this game.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/07 18:54 ID: gq4h4ev

Have they added BIGMODE?

15 : Anonymous2021/03/07 06:18 ID: gq2nww0

Anyone know how to get over the VR vertigo with this game? Even in Blade and Sorcery I don't experience it as bad as Phasmophia. I want to try it but can't.

ID: gq2r5d2

What helped me was using analog stick on my WMR for forward and backward movement. For turning, I just physically turn myself so it makes movement a step process that is not overwhelming. Hope that helps!

ID: gq2s3fb

For me, going from my Rift S to Quest 2 and running at a rock-steady 90 fps fixed all my motion sickness. But everybody is different, you may have to wait until the 120hz update coming soon.

ID: gq35lx6

I think I have pretty good vr legs, can play elite and barrel roll all day long or run about in other vr games just fine but as soon as I boot up phasmophobia I start to feel sick. Feels like the world's not scaled properly.

Patiently awaiting advancements.

How about instead of the dev hiring more people that he instead open the game to steam workshop and let other people contribute their ideas freely.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/07 12:12 ID: gq3a1o0

They need to work on one giant game changing update, add more maps, and open workshop.

The okay’s of today are akin to connecting multiple dots with straight lines. Taking into consideration the doctor knocking on his door, the lines may become curved due to the brightness of the monitor screen.

Everytime I see the name Phasmophobia I keep reading it as Phantasmagoria and keep thinking there is a remake coming out 😡

21 : Anonymous2021/03/07 06:32 ID: gq2p4uc

Wish the had the option to play as the ghost

ID: gq4hgos

Yeah totally. I also wish there was a friendly type of ghost. Maybe it'd have more traits to balance out difficulty. Maybe even a game mode as the "team" who come to remove the ghost

Man I’d love to play this game more, but it makes my gaming laptop sound like a jet engine. I’ve even put this game on low settings and the fans still sound like they’re about to explode.

Edit: GTX 1660 Ti, Intel 7 Core

It’s cpu intensive. Having an ssd changes everything

ID: gq444fd

Disable turbo boost for this game. You'll get lower frames but this isn't a fps so who cares.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/07 05:11 ID: gq2i61d

We quit playing this after the developer hid the files to tweak for more than 4 players. I regret buying it now.

ID: gq2xv37

There's a lot of reasons you could dislike the game for, but that one was removed because of how obnoxiously unstable it made the game.

ID: gq32wrq

It can affect the servers when people increase the player limit past 4. It's quite selfish to want to do so despite that. It isn't peer to peer connections.

ID: gq2jgtr

Try to refund, you may be past the 2 hour mark but steam has made exceptions before.

Edit: misread the comment, I thought op was experiencing some kinda bug or technical issue.

Well for people not playing in the beta branch it's new
