Hi ModDB friends!

Today’s update contains the first screens of the chapter Hatred’s Asphyxiation, along with new anticipatory scenes from the game and the profile graphics also receiving a refresh. Development is rolling at a jolly rate and the stuff I’m cooking up is really gonna piss a lot of people off.

I grew up on a steady diet of some nasty horror films and gory FPS games, but also come from a church-going background. I’ve lived and breathed both worlds, so the concept of Christian horror makes perfect sense to me, but I’m acutely aware that it doesn’t for most people. This is partially due to corny stereotypes perpetuated by the Christian entertainment industry, which has sold the world a pathetically sanitised and gutless impression of the Bible. The intention of initiating Christian horror as an authentic sub-genre is to squash these stereotypes like a grape. I believe God purposely allowed me to be exposed to the horror genre from a young age to prepare me for this task.

The Bible is jam-packed with hardcore horror and violence. If it were made into a film series with zero censorship, it would be banned all over the place and make Cannibal Holocaust look pretty tame in comparison. Don’t believe me? Here’s a sample list I put together in my Scripture studies:

Christian Horror...WTF?! Excerpt

The full list goes on and on...this is an excerpt from an upcoming piece entitled ‘Christian Horror...WTF?!’

Eventually, I expect some of the fiercest critics of THEOS: A Chronicle of Faith will be certain other types of Christians, often the type who believe in physically punishing their kids, yet oppose violent films and games (???...ikr) Some will even accuse me of the ‘devil’s work’, only because their own book is too hot for them. If God tells me to light the fire under their arses, I’ll do it even if the non-believers gather to watch. I’ll save that for when it’s needed, but I don’t play favourites with my own crowd, this thing is the real deal.

I post infrequent updates, in keeping with the serious tenor of this game and because I like to keep the head low and the shovel high. I find it’s fitting to sneak up on you guys when you aren’t expecting it anyway. :D

‘Till next time, toodles! :)

Nice concept , Altough the character models , look a bit , Odd . Like they're made out of Play doh or something. Other than that , looks pretty cool so far

Play-doh? Dude, WTH are you talking about? The characters are deliberately retro, because it's not possible as the sole developer to create a full-sized game with current-gen graphics. If you don't like it, then move on. This is an adult game, not a game for kids who bring up puerile nonsense like 'play-doh'. Grow up mate.

This is probably among one of the most gruesome games I have ever seen and there hasn't even been a trailer for it yet. Good luck with the mod!

I'm always, always interested in other Half Life 2 mods. I am seeing some really impressive stuff here, can't wait to see what else you all manage to do.
