"Family Is Important, Wouldn't You Agree?"





The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story, is out now!

Steam (As a Demo for Faceless) - IndieDB - Itch.io

(The Sorrowvirus will also be available on GameJolt shortly.)



It's been a long time since our last update on here, dated on the 14th June 2017. I want to apologise for not being as active on our Faceless social medias to reassure more of you that Faceless is actively in development. It's understandable that many of you suspected that Faceless may be dead, or completely abandoned. I want to reassure all of you that isn't the case and it couldn't be further from the truth. We've spent most of our days working on developing The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story, which was originally intended to be a Tech Demo for Faceless. Instead, it grew to become a Single-Player Short Story for Faceless that is designed to expand upon the story of Faceless behind the upcoming multiplayer portion of the game.

The Sorrowvirus allows players to take on the role of Wyatt Heyll, a young man stricken with a multitude of diseases and cancers. His parents infected him with a paranormal substance known as the Sorrowvirus, which causes him to fall to Purgatory when he dies, allowing him to heal and escape Purgatory to return to life once more. However, Wyatt continues to fall ill every time he returns to the land of the living. With four endings to find, it's your choice to find the best outcome for Wyatt. The Sorrowvirus is a first-person story adventure that takes place in Purgatory, a semi-physical plane that builds its surroundings based upon the person's memories and dreams.

Most importantly, The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story is entirely free to download. We wanted to provide "proof of life" via the form of something real, something you could actually get your hands on and play right now while we get back to working on multiplayer shortly after the New Year. As mentioned in the title, The Sorrowvirus is a short story, and it roughly lasts 30-45 minutes of gameplay time. However, each time you return to the game (without quitting it), things will change. Getting any other endings other than the default ending will require a keen observation of your surroundings to find visual clues on how to access certain areas of the map. We look forward to seeing who finds the True Ending first, it's certainly not an easy feat!

We also remade our very first trailer for The Sorrowvirus!

You can download The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story on Steam (As Faceless' Demo), and, of course, here on IndieDB.

We really appreciate your patience, and your impatience too. This is our first time creating a game, and our transition from the Source Engine to the Unreal Engine 4 was a tough, challenging but all around worthwhile one. With 'The Sorrowvirus' being released, we also wanted to launch an IndieGoGo Crowdfunding Campaign alongside it, for those who would like to support our project and receive some nifty rewards also.

This was one of the main reasons we wanted to make The Sorrowvirus first so that you would have something real to interact with first, rather than just investing in an idea. While multiplayer will be very different, we're planning to take a very unique and interesting take on the single-player short stories by exploring different genres and gameplay styles for each one. Our focus now will be returning to multiplayer and once a release has been achieved for that, only then will we hone our focus onto other Short Stories to explore the story of Faceless even further.

With your support, financially and beyond, we can ensure that Faceless will be a better product than ever, as we'll be vigilant in regards to your own comments and suggestions for the game. We want to make sure the multiplayer portion of the game is just as exciting for you as it is for us. Backers will be entitled to various rewards based on the perk(s) you choose, including early access to development content and other insider looks.

For those who are extremely vigilant, you may even discover a visual preview of our multiplayer monster, The Soulrender.


DISCORD



Alongside the launch of The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story, we also have a Discord Server for all of you to join! There are public rooms, as well as private rooms for those who have backed us via the IndieGoGo campaign or any possible future opportunities to be a Backer on our server.

I also want to take this time to thank my team, for their patience and their incredible talents for bringing The Sorrowvirus, and eventually Faceless, to life. I couldn't do it without a single one of them. They're remarkably talented and I hope they go far in their fields. I hope we work together for a long time during and after Faceless.

We really hope you all enjoy The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story, we look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Not at all! Our community presence isn't what it should be, but we're working on this every single day. We've never made a game before so we're trying our utmost best. The Sorrowvirus (Our upcoming single-player short story for Faceless) was originally going to be a Tech Demo, but it's now a full short-story for people to experience. It's currently in its final stages and we hope for it to be out soon so that we can return to working on multiplayer.

Hey devs, I hope you can answer this questions for a lot of ppl.

Is there still any development on this game and is there a chance of getting the game at some point. I am following the gamenews for several years now and dont really know if the game will be released.

Pls keep this game up! There is a lot of potential in this game.

We're hard at work every day! The sole reason why it's taking so long is primarily due to the fact that we haven't created a video game before. This is why we sidetracked our efforts into creating a short-story instead, so that we could improve our skills and get something out there for you guys to play. Once The Sorrowvirus (our short story) is done, we will return to developing multiplayer. The other issue is due to difficulties with programming, and how tough it is to find another experienced programmer who is happy to join the team. Regardless, it will be done!

So this game is no longer about slenderman?

That's correct, this game is no longer about the Slender Man. This is primarily for two reasons, one: we were given a Cease & Desist, so we couldn't continue with it, and two: I wanted us to proceed with my own creation instead.

Is this purely a four player co-op? Or is there a player controlling the monster?

The multiplayer gamemode is a four-player co-op, we currently have no plans to focus on the implementation of a versus mode due to the difficulties we're facing with developing the core game. We hope that the tide turns one day so that we may focus on expanding the game with further modes.
