Here's why Faceless hasn't been Greenlit for Steam

Here's why Faceless hasn't been Greenlit for Steam photo



The Slender Man craze seems to have really blown up in recent times, reaching a wider audience that somehow includes my sister and countless other YouTube-browsing teens. It seems many of us love a good scare. A game seeking approval on Steam Greenlight, Faceless (previously known as Slender: Source), has attempted to build off of this interest, but there's a problem, and it doesn't have to do with garnering enough support.

"We've been the No. 1 game since the service launched and have yet to be Greenlit due to copyright issues with Slender Man, which is a free-to-use entity, and we've even gotten permission from the creator Victor Surge," developer Justin Ross told Joystiq.

What will it take for the game to move forward and see a full Steam release? Valve's response to Ross was that "The permission from Victor Surge/Eric Knudsen is fine but since he has an option holder we'll need their permission too." A setback, to be sure.

It sounds like Ross is still working to reach a resolution, saying: "I have a feeling we'll get the go-ahead once everything is done with the option holder, but it's kind of hit a stale mark in the road. The option holder hasn't gotten back to me in about a week, and I'm mildly worried by that. If all else fails, we'll just bail from Greenlight and publish the game on ModDB so we can avoid all these copyright issues."

Very Quick Tips: Resident Evil: Revelations 2's Raid Mode

I'm thoroughly impressed by Capcom's efforts with Resident Evil: Revelations 2's Raid Mode. It's much deeper compared to previous efforts, augmented by a sleeker interface and a seamlessly integrated mini-story. Because of that it may take a little bit longer to acclimate, so here are some tips.more

Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2: Episode 1

Resident Evil is in a weird place. After the middling Resident Evil 6 and the public flogging of Operation Raccoon City, I'm sure Capcom got the message that it needed to go back to basics. It did just that with Revelati...more
