With Christmas on its way, we thought it would be a suitable time to bring about another mini-update for Faceless. The Soulrender is still undergoing its latest facelift, and the story is well and truly coming to life in the game. We successfully completed our first basic multiplayer test, and we'd like to show that in action very soon. We released a small teaser on the 16th August of this year which revealed one of the game's dolls in action. Whilst they are only able to control themselves slightly, they are still trapped and waiting to be set free or consumed by the Soulrender.

Set Them Free.



We also released a bunch of new in-game screenshots of our Small Maps, which we believe will be the most commonly played maps due to the larger maps requiring the full concentration and attention of the player. These Small Maps are not related to the main storyline, but they will now contain tidbits of story information provided by Henry North; Daniel's father. These can be found in tape recorders scattered around the Small Maps. Henry North strived to save Daniel from a life of hunting down the paranormal, but as evidenced by the game's plot, he may not have succeeded. Introducing Steven Kelly as Henry North.

Let Him Live.



Here are some screenshots of three out of the four Small maps seen in Faceless.

We're still working hard on getting previews ready for you all to see the game in action. As a recap, I'd like to remind you on how the gamemode itself works, and how that will differ from the Small Maps to the Main Maps. The Gamemode surrounds setting innocent souls free, there are dolls scattered all around Wakeland City, and you must make sure you set all these souls free whilst trying to survive. The Soulrender is a severely wounded and injured creature, and this is the only reason why inexperienced survivors have any chance of being able to set all the innocent souls free. Your job will be to collect the dolls one-by-one (The number of dolls depend on how many people are playing) and deliver them to the Ritual Zone.

Before, during, or even after you have set all the souls free, you will need to power up a generator that will open an industrial-strength door and allow you and your friends to enter a safe room. This room is covered in sigils that ward the Soulrender away, allowing the characters to wait it out and escape. The Small Maps will not require this, players will escape by going back towards the entrance of the map. You can certainly imagine how this will come into play when watching the "Let Him Live" teaser!

Finally, I'd like to show the differences of the Ritual Zone in Hyde Street Station (One of the main maps) - from its first version to its current version. After working on the Small maps for the year, I took some time to revisit Hyde and work on the Ritual Zone again, improving upon it based on what I'd learned.

We hope you all have a great Christmas this year, and we're constantly looking forward to update you on our progress. We understand a few of you are impatient for this project, but this has been a very difficult feat to achieve and some of us have pushed our skills beyond the limit of what we thought we could achieve in order to make Faceless a reality. We know many of you are desiring a release date, and whilst we cannot guarantee one, I will say that we are aiming for Q3 2016. This is not a release date, this is a target that we hope to meet.

Remember to keep an eye on our Facebook Page! We post WIP content, as well as other information pertaining to the game there.

Shame on them for leaking this mod. I was part of the development team a while ago as your decal artist, but I've been busy with college, which is why I dropped. :( I would NEVER dream of leaking! Shame on them!

But I remembered about this mod a couple of minutes ago and I see you guys are progressing quite well. I hope you guys make this game a great success! I know you will.

:)

Will slenderman actually move and walk around like he did in marble hornets, or will he just teleport like in the original game?

Nope he's walking and I think that sometimes if you just stand there and watch him walk towards you, he will run at you. But he ALSO teleports and the walking and running is more randomized.

Hey Adam, I am sorry for commenting so soon after, I just got an account so I am no longer a guest, I don't have any knowledge on coding, texturing, modeling, (I'm basicly useless) but I can help with some concept art, I don't know if that jobs open but I wouldn't even do it for a job, I would just do it as a fan or more like a supporter, the content you guys are making is mind blowing with what you can do with the Source Engine.

Someone didn't read everything in the news update...

"We will be shipping out a free version of Faceless with the Hyde Street Station and Forest map, alongside the prologue as a single-player standalone build of Faceless. These are the maps Faceless would have had, if it were to remain free. (With the prologue as a bonus addition!)"
