Indie horror show Faceless switches from free to paid release, devs explain

Faceless, an indie horror game that began life as a popular Slender: Source mod, recently announced that it would be sold on Steam as a commercial game. The development team had previously planned to release the game for free—and campaigned on Greenlight promising to be free—so the fan reaction has been swift and predictable: rage. In a new interview, lead developer Adam Sklar explains why the change was made, in part, at Valve’s suggestion.
