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.

Posted by Manio31 on Sep 16th, 2012

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.

I think the new name is better than the original, and the addition of achievements should increase interest from gamers who are into that kinda things.

Overall, looking forward to this, and I bet it'll scare the pants offa me.

Didn't you have to program the achievements into the game? Or did Valve have to program them into Steam? ...Or was it both? @.@

Either way, Achievements shouldn't really be done until the game itself is finished. Make it "icing on the cake", if you will.

+1 I would love to see you guys on greenlight plus I also would like those achievements, because achievements give you bragging rights and so on.

After I read that, I think it's the most excited I've been about this mod thus far:3

Totally agree. It's a shame, purely because of that, most of my work for Faceless when it was called Slender: Source has gone to waste, because a word was copyrighted, complete and utter ******** if you ask me, but that's business.

Happy Birthday was also copy-righted. That's why restaurants always have their own birthday song. They'd have to pay if they sang the actual Happy Birthday song.
