About This Game

"Family is important, wouldn't you agree?"

Faceless is a pre-apocalyptic supernatural mystery set around a cursed city and an unearthly creature known as The Soulrender. Players must work together to gather a series of dolls and set the souls within free, whilst also attempting to survive the wounded yet powerful threat that lurks. Faceless includes three separate short-stories that take place at the same time as each other. Explore the events that led to Elijah Grey's disappearance, to Daniel North's downfall, and to Wyatt Heyll's struggle to cling onto hope.

Four friends must enter Wakeland City to search for Daniel North, but when they learn that the city is full of Dolls that have souls trapped within them, they decide to heed Daniel North's directions on delivering the Dolls to the Ritual Zones around the city as a means to drive the Soulrender away. Discover hidden clues from Daniel North, Elijah Grey, and Henry North in the form of digital/cassette recordings to learn what caused the infamous 'Bear Valley Tragedy'.

Whispers of Wakeland is a single player Prologue to Faceless, which follows Elijah Grey (Sam A. Mowry) as he makes his way towards the Fallen Grace Church in order to search for Daniel. He must find out if the Sorrowvirus was successful in destroying the Soulrender and survive the Anomalies that gather at the Asylum underneath the church. When signs begin to appear that something inexplicable happened here, Elijah must work his way carefully around the Anomalies that lurk through the Asylum and try to escape.

The Perishing of Daniel North is a single player Epilogue to Faceless, as you take control of the signature character of Faceless; Daniel North. You must guide Daniel through Purgatory as he remembers the pivotal moments that occurred before his downfall and find your way out from the ever-changing, timeless place. Anomalies return in TPoDN as Daniel roams through a warped version of his childhood home, and other important places in his life.

The Sorrowvirus explores Wyatt Heyll's penultimate visit to Purgatory as he fights to end his suffering at the hands of his parents once and for all. Taking place at the same time as the Prologue and Epilogue, The Sorrowvirus allows the player to explore a twisted amalgamation of abandoned areas from Wakeland City as Wyatt is overwhelmed by guilt for ignoring the Dolls of Wakeland City. As you venture through The Sorrowvirus again after completing it in search for the True Ending, certain elements may have been altered.
