Is there a difference between this and the gamejolt edition?
FAITH - Itch.io Edition
A downloadable game for Windows
FAITH is a pixel horror game inspired by the era of MS-DOS, Apple II, Atari, and ZX Spectrum classics.
"A truly eerie horror game." - IGN
"Aside from being well-drawn, this is a well-paced, well-written, tense and fairly scary horror game." - PC Gamer
"A remarkable game." - Rock Paper Shotgun
"FAITH puts a fresh spin on spiritual horror" - Rely On Horror
On September 21, 1986, two priests arrived at the Martin Family home in rural Connecticut to investigate an apparent case of demonic possession. Only two people would leave the house alive.
Haunted by nightmares and searching for answers, a young priest travels down a dark highway to return to the cursed house a year later.
Forget blue-and-pink neon. The 1980s were scary. No Internet, it was hard to reach you if you weren't home, and the U.S. was engrossed in the “Satanic Scare” which fueled widespread paranoia about devil-worshiping, witchcraft, and occult practices.
game journalists gamers are saying about FAITH:
"...I find this spookier than a game with much better graphics and effects"
"Amazing how something so minimally designed can be terrifying"
"This is so f***ing horrifying"
"Well, I didn't want to sleep anyway"
"I'm gonna s***t myself"
FAITH takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete 100%. It is recommended that you play it with an Xbox 360 controller.

this game looks really good but I had some really... spooky issues once I downloaded it. I can hear the music but my screen seems to only be showing glitched imagery like this picture.
I actually thought it was part of the game bc it was so scary lol.... or is it?? Well anyways I’ll try to redownload or something bc it looks like a good game
edit:heres a video with my issue. reinstalled twice, same thing :( games have always worked on my computer cept for this one
Howdy! Send me an email: airdorf<at>gmail<dot>com. This is an issue that usually happens with Windows 8 users.
As a huge weenie that almost never plays/watches/reads anything horror, I absolutely love this game! The sound design, art design, premise, gameplay, all of it! It's a tiny horror masterpiece
Ehi! Your game is really good!
Se c'è qualche italiano ho fatto un let's Play!
Terrifying game. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys classic horror game. This game really hit all the right notes when it comes to doing horror corrctly
This Game was fantastic! Here's my gameplay footage of it. Enjoy!
Highly recommend this game to everyone interested in the aesthetic and horror. It's really something else, and manages to do alot with the art style and sound design. Short and sweet, loved it!
Just curious: are there only the five endings? Because looking over the trailer, I realized I hadn't seen that shot of the white demon smiling or the woman in black in front of the church - were those cut from the game or are they secrets? (I thought I was being smart by leaving the gun and going after Amy without it, but that's not the way...)
Also, this might be giving away too much, but is there a point to the note you find at the very end (the ritual instructions with all the asterisks), or is it just meant to hint at what happens in ending 3?
The note explaining the ritual hints at what happened to one of the characters. Congratulations on finding it!
Game is a blast! Would love to see more updates in the future! Amazing work.
This was a really good game. I didn't manage to find all the ending to this game, but I got the best ending I think. I made a video on this game so I hope you enjoy it. Keep up the good work, and thanks for making a great game.
Not able to get (yet), just curious: How does one reach the black-and-white farm in the trailer? Or the red Man?
I spent the first 20 minutes like an idiot (even though i did the Tutorial) getting killed by the starting thing because i didn`t realize that it was demon. I tries stopping every once and a while and using the crucifix before i finally put 2 + 2 together. I then realized the Start was like Slender: the 8 pages. XD only played a little so far but looks promising
This game was amazing. Not only did it make me jump, it gave me genuine chills, which is pretty hard to do - I don't scare easily.
I was wondering if there is a "script" for the non-subtitles voices of Amy and Michael. I can make out some of it, but not all.
Oh, and "I have the body of a pig" is freaking terrifying.
I quit the game somewhere in the middle I saw the save icon but when I played the game again it started from the beginning. :( how do I fix this?
the save function is more like if you die, it resets you to that spot. it doesnt save everything if u quit :/
How did you make such a creepy game With that old look> I am not a fan of horror games but I thought this might not be as scary as other games. I was wrong.
Brrr, this game spooked me a lot more than I expected! There's just something about those old school graphics and sound effects that sets my nerves on edge.
Love the mechanics, love the trial and error learning curve, love the atmosphere, love the music... love pretty much all of it! Keep up the amazing work everyone! =)
This was fantastic! I got all 5 endings but I feel like there's still some mystery here because at one point I found a clown nose...
See the end here-
What did you use for the speech synthesis?
https://blog.wavosaur.com/text-to-speech-vst-vst-speek/ I believe it was this. Enjoy. Note: It's a plugin for Wavosaur, which you'll also need to download. It's also on that website and is free.
I used software that was literally developed in the late 1970s. The real deal.
The music in this game is awesome! I only got to play it for a few minutes, so I'll be sure to dive back in at my next recording session! Here's the first part of my journey!
This is a wonderful game, genuinely scary in terms of style and atmosphere, absolutely love it. i do wonder though, is the rotoscope scene with micheal running actually in the game, or was it just a trailer thing? i've never seen that in the game, just the trailer and the shirt. wonderful game though, keep it up.
It IS in the game, and it's really easy to find. But I don't think anybody's found it yet!
This game is great. Nice ms dos visuals. Good story. Good religion. Good god. Good everything. Amen.
Excellent game, fantastic visuals and audio and genuinely creepy at times. Great job.
I just made an account to say that i absolutely loved the game!! I do have something to say, i think the player would have benefited from a little sprint or run option. I know its supposed to be an atari inspired game but the priest moves very slow and can make moving outside the house kind of frustrating in my opinion. But other than that the game is so cool and i got chills down my spine on the animated segments. Also, would you mind sharing a video of the secrets from the game? i feel like a lot of streamers and lets players missed some and a compilation video would be helpful. Thank you again for this spooky experience!!!
Made a video
I recently discovered this game and was blown away. This is truly a great project!
I was especially impressed by the visuals and music. I wonder if there is any place to listen to the soundtrack?
10/10! Absolutely thrilling.
Faith is so much scarier than you would think! I loved it!
This game is awesome and really creepy! You nailed the old style effects. I really think the old school sounds are the most disturbing way to give a voice to a demon. :)
I think I got really close to the end but unfortunately I ran into an error that crashed the game.
hi I love this game! I got up to the attic part and decided to take a break but when I closed it it didn’t save!! Does anyone know how to save it? Thank you!!
I'm so enjoying this game and spooky atmosphere that it brings us. I haven't played such a cozy creepy pixelated game for a while. Enjoying every second of it, even if I have some technical issues right now, about which I told before. Anyway can't wait to play more and finally see how this story ends ^_^
How do i kill this grey demon dude xD ??
and huge respect for thanking your mom <3 <3
So i noticed that you thanked Shuan Spalding in the readme.txt, does that mean that it's safe to assume that you made this game in GameMaker?
When it comes to horror there's really only a couple of things that truly scare me, ghosts and demons, needless to say this game made me shiver uncontrollably whilst playing...
The art style gives the game a certain charm and despite it's appearance it can (and will) scare you. The retro style audio is amazing as well, from the music to the sound effects the game's audio is gold.
The atmosphere is nailed right from the beginning, I have yet to feel safe during my playthrough of the game.
This is a really solid experience, though I've yet to finish it, it can get a little frustrating at times but I found that piecing together the story here was more than worth a few minutes of wandering around. I hope you don't mind but I've started a let's play series of the game on channel.
Cheers and best wishes to you, I look forward to playing more of the game!
Okay, so I personally have Mac. And I tried to use Wine Bottler, cause I really wanted to try it out AND everything was fine, until I came into the house and several rooms were rainbow colored and not accessible xD Then I tried to install it on Windows 7 64-bit and it's basically as the human being said bellow: white screen. Music is playing and everything is fine, but white screen. Tried it with for a few time, same result. So sorry, good game, I like the atmosphere, the possessed creature? demon? always trying to eat us, but I don't think I would be able to play it fully :) What a shame((
Really loving this game. Have a question on an ending I'm missing. Got "Murderer", the deer one, "Father And Son", "Faith", I'm missing the other one and I'm totally lost. Any tips? Thanks!
Look around outside some more! Follow the different paths in the woods.
(EDIT) I got it, can't believe I missed that. Great game! gave you 5*s.
I'm almost positive I've been down all of the 5 paths. The only one that's left is the one with the squirrel. I just went back replayed from the beginning and got the CHAOS REIGNS trigger, I'm totally lost here.
I have Windows 7 64-bit. After the loading screen I get a white screen? Audio and controls seem to work.
Alt-tab back to the game window. This happens sometimes if you click on something outside of the game window while the application is loading.
Hi! This game is fantastic! Love the atmosphere and the creepy retro audio and the awesome pixel art animation. I'm stuck though - can't figure out how to get bast the 'Kill Her' bit. Have found a gun, but can't find her. Any tips?
Game is great fun, I like the atmosphere and the classic vibes! Can't wait to get further in!
A+ - I love the gameplay, sfx, death screen, the eerie movement that makes me feel trapped, all of it.
