The year is coming to a close and we would like to reveal our Christmas Update! The Radio Silence is now effectively over.

This got authorised much quicker than I expected it to be, originally MEANT to be posted on the 15th, but you guys, you're lucky too, you get it a day early. Whilst this is here, join the newly opened Facebook page: Facebook.com





Hello guys! 10 days until Christmas now. Have you all bought your presents for others? Well that's certainly not the point today you see, we have ended our Radio Silence in which some of you thought we'd disappeared completely.


Radio Silence.


This image that we uploaded a while back indeed said the 15th December 2012. So today is the 15th December 2012 and we are releasing our Christmas Update and our last update of 2012! So we've got quite a few things to run through today.


First things first, the promotional image pointed towards a new teaser for Christmas, which features two of the maps as well as hinting at the background storyline. Fortunately and unfortunately, a lot of progress has been made since the development of this trailer which includes new shaders, models and materials and so on that are not featured in this trailer. However there is a very, very slight chance that a New Years' Teaser could be done also! No promises, however.

Now we'd like to show some screenshots from two of our maps in progress, the Hyde St. Station Subway by the great ForbiddenDonut and the Abandoned Cavern by WitheredGryphon which were both featured in the trailer. All of the locations whilst different will have ties between one another giving reason and cause for you as players to be there.

Now some Work In Progress tracks for Faceless by rpthehotrod.





We would also like to show you some models done by the brilliant Logithx to be featured in Faceless throughout various maps.

Something else to show is something we've wanted for a long time! No Slenderman game is complete without its own set of symbols, much like The Operator is known for its famous symbol, we decided to seek out somebody who could design some for us, and these awesome symbols were designed by the brilliant deaddoll00 and we certainly will be using them throughout the maps!



Also a matter in which we would like to discuss with you in regards to the donation campaigns that took place! Anybody who donated into one of these categories below will be refunded and given free beta access, access to something secret also as well as their face in a poster in the mod! We do apologise for this unfortunate happening, but we hope you can understand that unfortunately Manio placed these rewards without us knowing of them and fulfilling them would severely slow down development time!

"$50- Medium Perk -Thanks! Your donation of $50 is getting you beta access, contributor status, your face on a poster, and our next game for free. 6 out of 10 Claimed."

"$100- Big Ole Perk - Thanks! Your donation of $100 is getting you beta access, contributor status, your face on a poster, our next game for free, and the chance to yourself in-game as a playable character in the future. 2 out of 6 Claimed.”

"$50- Big Perk - Thanks! Your donation of $50 is getting you beta access, contributor status, your face on a poster, our next game for free, and the chance to put yourself into the video game. - 4 out of 10 Claimed."

"$100- Massive Perk - Thanks! Your donation of $100 is getting you beta access, contributor status, your face on a poster, our next game for free, and the chance to become a playable character, not just a dead person in the game. - SOLD OUT! - 5 Claimed."



We wish we didn't have to do this but unfortunately it is a must for the modification as these rewards cannot be fulfilled, there is no guarantee of developing a next game, nor is there a feasible timeframe to develop additional playable characters. However, all of you will get all your money back as well as having beta access when the time comes, something secret early as well as your face on a poster!
For all your enquires and/or concerns, you may contact us as the development team, but Manio is the person who started the donation campaigns and is also responsible for your refunding as he possess the funds from the IndieGoGo campaigns. Refunds are due to take place in the following week. Please contact him in regards to any concerns or thoughts you may have via his email here: rossjustin00@gmail.com


And finally, we'd like to answer some of your questions that you have had for us from various places!

QuestionOne wrote:"What purpose do the dolls serve? How do they help the players escape?"

The dolls contain an entity which we are yet to leave unconfirmed that the Slenderman effectively ‘feeds' on. When you are handling them, it has lost contact with it and that makes it very angry. 

QuestionTwo wrote:"Is there more than one Slenderman in this modification?"

There is not more than one Slenderman in this modification. Whilst some other Slenderman based games are now expanding on the Slenderman, we like to believe Slendy is a one and only.



For the rest of your interests, here is an interview hosted by deaddoll00 of YouTube with Adam Sklar.


And I suppose that concludes our Christmas Update! From all of us here, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Oh, did I forget the teaser trailer? ;D

Had to save it for last. Although I would like to personally inform all of you that as an individual and as the creator of this teaser, I'm not entirely happy with it myself. We know you guys wanted to see gameplay, and something that wasn't altered in any way, and I tried my best with what we have so far to show that. Soon enough, we'll be able to show you a lot more.




We'd also like to thank everyone who has voted for us for Best Upcoming MOTY. Even though we haven't released very much of our project so far, we're thrilled to see that there's such a level of excitement and anticipation in the air with regards to our eventual release.

Once again from all of us, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

~Sklarlight.

I can imagine a child staying awake, waiting for Santa Claus to come... Then Slenderman peeks around the corner.

Merry Christmas Wendy.

Top, 2nd from farthest left symbol is personally my favorite. So, will Slender be animated or will he be perfectly still like in every game?
