This week's update is short, and mainly goes over the issues with why we had to change the name to "Faceless" to correct some rumors that people have been starting.

Welcome to another weekly update for Faceless, which was previously known as Slender: Source. The first order of business is correcting some rumors that some people have been starting. Slender: Source was renamed for a variety of reasons. 1) Having the name Source in your name felt un-original, un-inspired and we wanted something new. 2) People kept assuming we were part of Slender's original team, or they were helping us make the mod, which isn't true. 3) We couldn't exactly be Greenlit with Source in the name, and Slender had been copy-righted.
So, we've moved to Faceless. It's not because we didn't want to be associated with Slender, or any other silly reasons people are saying. The above statement is the truth, and nothing else.
We're also on Steam Greenlight and trying to get support on Steam to provide you guys with quicker, and quality updates. As well as work on possibly getting some more unique support via Achievements that will actually show up, and can compare against your friends. (Achievements won't remove the horror aspect, or subtract from gameplay. More initiate to actually play it properly) However, achievements are still in talk amongst the development team. If enough people want them, we'll do them.
That's essentially it for this week lads, and ladies. Be sure to keep supporting us, and tell your friends. The support really helps, and gives us the inspiration we need to complete the mod and bring it out to the masses for everyone to play, and get scared.
P.S. We've been working on content, and getting our Slender-man to be a most terrifying sight. He's in-game, and has been killing dev members off in a variety of frightening ways. Some of the devs were hunkered down in a building, and decided to make a run for it. All you heard were screams as bodies began collapsing to the ground...and silence. True story!
So don't fret, kids. You'll see some new content next week, and possibly show some content from our new map which is a "Subway Station". At-least, I think I'm allowed to tell you guys about the new map that's being designed. Either way, thanks for the support.
