What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Face It is all about how the gameplay makes you feel. We want to hear from the players themselves how THEY feel while playing so we can improve the game. That said, playtesting is extremely important for the balancing, adding new challenges and feedback. It is an introspective game shaped by how the players react to the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“From 6 months to a year. The time necessary to design all new features and levels and playtest them with the community.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will feature improved 3D assets, 9 game worlds, narration, new platforms, new enemies, new mechanics, new magic sigils and new music from several artists.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has a game world with 10 levels, 2 types of enemies and 8 types of interactive platforms.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We understand that an Early Access title, being incomplete, has to be priced somewhat lower than the full product. The sooner you buy the game, the less you pay. We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We really need the community to help us balance the levels. We have to create a good difficulty curve to make playing Face It a good experience and we need to find out what kind of mechanics trigger specific feelings. We are counting with the feedback from the community to help us make this game as good as it can be.”

A better platformer

Hello folks,

We heard your critics and are trying to make it feel smoother to jump around on platforms.

Here is the changes:

JUMP ASSISTS!
There is a bit of technicality regarding this feature that involves gravity, movement imput and everything, but the importante thing is this:
Now It's way easier to reach the desired platform and much less likely to miss the jump.

You just have to jump with the confidence that you won't miss it.
When you are above safeground, gravity will gently push yours toward it, preventing you from landing further from the target.
If you are too hardcore and oldschool for jump assists, then you can turn it off on the options menu. It is turned ON as default setting.

A MORE VISIBILE SHADOW FOR THE CHARACTER
Altough the shadow was already there, there were times when it was not so visible. Now you have a sharp dark shadow that marks the place where you are gonna land.


A softer volume for the flashlight to improve visibility
The volumetric light on the flashlight was too strong and was making it difficult to see what was right in front of the player.
Now the volume is softer and visibility is improved

A brighter spotlight around the character
There is now a good and bright light coming from the sigil above the head of the character so you can see clearly what's around you.

Camera Zoom
Now you can control the distance the camera is from the player.

Just rebemer:
a. More zoom is good for jumping around
b. Less zoom is good to solve puzzles and fighting ghosts


The controls are:

Keyboard: + and -
Mouse: Mouse Wheel
Gamepad: Keep the RT (Right Trigger) pressed and use the digital pads.

Enjoy!

About This Game

FACE IT is a game about facing the most challenging feelings of the human experience. It uses a dark atmosphere combining classic platform mechanics with survival dynamics to bring the feeling of wandering in the deepest and darkest places of the mind and soul.

Defeat Ghosts with the power of your inner light.
Face dangerous traps in a challenging platform experience.
Find your way through mazes and puzzles.

Through game design techniques, the levels are made to invite you to make a magical and metaphorical trip to your subconscious thoughts and deal with your inner issues.
The levels represents dark aspects of human consciousness, like Fear or Attachment. By beating a level, you shall find brighter states of mind, like Love or Truth.




As you might pass through the levels, you may unlock the magical sigils and symbols that represent those new brighter states of mind and unlock the keys for the levels from the Darkest World.

The sigils are symbolic representations of the magician's desired outcome. They are symbols created to cut through the walls of the conscious thought and affect directly the unconscious mind. It's at some extent, similar to subliminal messages.

One of the techniques we use to create sigils is a Sigilization method created by Austin Osman Spare, who was a magician, as well as a painter and graphical artist. The technique consists in writing spells with your intents, and agglutinate the letters to reduce the written statements in abstract symbols. The conscious mind may not remember the meaning of the symbols, but the subconscious keeps the memories about the symbol being made. This way, the symbols and their intents charge each other, exponentially increasing their influence on the mind.
