Hi ModDB friends!

Time to throw you a gnarled carrot! This update features the ‘Stiletto Brolly Shotty’, a break-action single-barrel shotgun with integrated spring-assisted stiletto, imitating an umbrella’s appearance. The weapons are being shown beforehand, as the story is hardly built around them. I'm still making them shitloads of fun for those who love blowin’ the hell out of the hideous spawnage. They’re necessary for the combative gameplay, but that's about it. This game is heavily story-driven, with the synopsis consisting of a minute component of the complete story, the remainder mostly concealed until release.

I’ve decided against releasing new mapshots at this update. The updates remain infrequent, being released to confirm for those in anticipation that THEOS: A Chronicle of Faith remains in active development. I greatly dislike premature hyping and things will be kept humble and appropriately restrained.

All aspects of THEOS have been placed in God’s hands, to run according to the Lord’s schedule. The chronicle of faith comprises not only the game itself, it characterises and encompasses the development also. No ‘luck’ and no wishfulness; everything pertaining to this project is about faith, from top to bottom.

Thanks very much for your time! See you in a bit! :)

This mod has caught my eye. Your story is very inspiring. Not only have people been through various degrees of pain and asking the question if there even a God. And if so how can He allow such things to happen. I have had my experiences with the Lord to know He listens. I love the way you let God take the reins in your project. How did this concept come alive for you? I also have a story to tell and I am actually kind of scared where God wants to take it. Any advice?

Thanks for asking dude and I do understand that :) My advice is to ensure your sense of validation is solely from God. Being true to the gospel and authentic with your story requires that one cannot be swayed by influences that try to take the focus off Christ. You won't be widely-accepted or well-understood, but your relationship with God will strengthen greatly.

The concept came after years of prayer, Bible study, listening to others and wrestling with the questions that THEOS deals with. This game is based off both my experiences and the experiences of others whom I know personally. THEOS was also born from a rejection of the 'Christian' entertainment industry, which has stifled the gospel by imposing a stereotype of sanitised, shallow 'family-friendly' content which is irrelevant in the real world, nor reflects the hardcore horror and violence found throughout the Bible.

Thank you for the time to respond. I'm sorry to hear that you have some hard times to get through. I can understand if this is a healing process for you. I have prayed and for the last year or so the story i'm lead to tell won't leave me. The hard part for me is the lack of experience I have in this area. I have played with level editors and 3d modeling. I know I can understand it enough to have a shot at making what is in my mind. But I run from it cause my confidence and faith is low. But the pull is getting stronger. Fear not is the words to push me through, yet I fear more unfortunately. Sorry totally rambling here. How do you get yourself to move forward esp. When your doing this on your own? Right now I see u as brave to push through what seems so controversial in this day and age.

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.

Not to be an ***, but what you're saying is if someone compares a laugh of a voice actor acting as a character in a game sounding like Spongebob, that would mean he or she would be considered a complete child or unmature?

That's completely contextual and there's no point responding to some vague, broad-sweeping question like that. I am well-atuned to the horror fanbase and if you are feeling experimental, then make comparisons of other horror titles to a baby's toy and see what type of responses you get.

Anyway dude, it's an old comment. Best let it slide now yeah? All these supposed grown-ups going on about kiddy stuff is starting to weird me out.
