HOW IT ALL STARTED

​​

     I BELIEVE THE ORIGIN OF THIS GAME BEGAN ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO IN A PILE OF SCRIBBLED NOTES AND ROUGH SKETCHES FOR A COMIC BOOK IDEA THAT I WANTED TO DO. IT WAS CALLED "BEVERLY STONE: OCCULT HUNTER." IN HINDSIGHT IT WAS A BIT GOOFY AND KIDDISH...NO, I'D SAY IT WAS DOWNRIGHT AWFUL AND PROBABLY INSPIRED BY SOME OTHER MAINSTREAM THING I WAS INTO AT THE TIME. BUT I REMEMBER BEING VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT THE CONCEPT.

 

     I'VE ALWAYS LOVED COMIC BOOKS MORE THAN ANY OTHER FORMAT OF ENTERTAINMENT, AND STILL DO. BUT MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS OF BECOMING A COMIC BOOK ARTIST/CREATOR FADED. PROBABLY BECAUSE I WASN'T A VERY GOOD ARTIST AND BEING A HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT SEVERELY LIMITED MY LIFE CHOICES. THE STRESSES OF LIFE SOON SETTLED IN AND AS TIME PASSED THE CONCEPTS WERE FORGOTTEN ABOUT AND STORED AWAY IN A CARDBOARD BOX, LEFT TO GATHER DUST. I JUST RECENTLY FOUND THAT BOX, BTW...    

 

     ON THE LAZY AFTERNOON OF MARCH 15TH, 2015, MY WIFE, LINDA, AND I WERE PLAYING A TABLETOP STRATEGY GAME, ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PASTIMES. I HAD STARTED MAKING FAN ART FOR THE GAME BY BRINGING IN MY FAVORITE MARVEL, DC HEROES AND OTHER COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS. AT ONE POINT I STARTED BRINGING IN SOME BIBLICAL HEROES LIKE KING DAVID AND MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL JUST FOR FUN. I MEAN, IT'S ALL FUN RIGHT? TURNS OUT I HAD A KNACK FOR IT. NONCHALANTLY, LINDA MENTIONED THAT I SHOULD MAKE MY OWN GAME. THAT WAS ALL I NEEDED...

     AT THAT MOMENT IT WAS LIKE AN ATOM BOMB DETONATED IN MY MIND. IDEAS FLOODED INTO MY SPIRIT LIKE A TSUNAMI.  I THINK THE FIRST THING THAT CAME OUT OF MY MOUTH AS I SLAMMED MY HAND DOWN ON THE TABLE WITH TEAR-FILLED EYES WAS "IT'S NOT A COMIC, IT'S A GAME... IT'S AN INTERACTIVE COMIC!!!" I THEN SAID, "I NEVER WANTED TO DO ANYTHING MORE IN MY LIFE."

 

     HER RESPONSE WAS CONFUSED, "I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, BUT OK." 

     I STARTED TO EXPLAIN THE VISION IN FULL DETAIL AND HER EYES GOT SUPER WIDE AND WITH NO HESITATION SHE SAID, AND I QUOTE, "WHY DON'T YOU CALL IT THE UNSEEN?" AND THERE IT WAS!

 

     I GOT TO WORK ALMOST IN A PANIC, LIKE I WAS GOING TO MISS A FLIGHT. I FELT LIKE IF I STOPPED IT WAS GOING TO LEAVE ME BEHIND AND I'D LOSE IT ALL FOREVER. I WAS STAYING UP ALL HOURS, WRITING, SCRIBBLING IDEAS, CUTTING UP AND REPAINTING OLD GAME PIECES FOR EARLY PROTOTYPES. IT WAS A BLUR... I COULDN'T GET IT ALL DOWN AND OUT OF MY HEAD FAST ENOUGH. TWO WEEKS LATER I HAD SKETCHED OUT SOME AWFUL LOOKING GAME BOARD IDEAS, BUT THE CONCEPT WAS THERE AND I HAD A WORKING PROTOTYPE ON A TABLE, READY FOR TESTING. MY WIFE AND I GROUND OUT THE MECHANICS, BUILDING AND BREAKING THE RULES AND WRITING THE STORIES FOR WHAT YOU'RE SEEING NOW.

     AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE I HAD COMPLETELY STOPPED DRAWING FOR YEARS AND HAD ONLY READ THE EQUIVALENT OF MAYBE THREE NOVELS IN MY LIFE. BUT THEN...GOD. I BELIEVE...AND KNOW. GOD'S SPIRIT RAPIDLY DREW ME TO A PLACE OF SUPERNATURAL ABILITIES AND REALIZATIONS OF THINGS I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD DO OR BELIEVED WERE EVEN POSSIBLE, AND ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SAY "YES!"

 

     I HIRED AN ARTIST IN THE BEGINNING BECAUSE OF MY SELF DOUBTS AND FEARS THAT MY ART WOULD NEVER REACH THE LEVEL NEEDED FOR THE GAME. HE DID SOME GREAT WORK AND WE LAID OUT SOME CONCEPTS TOGETHER. BUT, UNDERSTANDABLY, DUE TO BALANCING HIS DAY JOB, THREE KIDS WITH HIS WIFE, HE WAS UNABLE TO COMMIT TO THE AMOUNT OF WORK THERE WAS TO BE DONE IN THE TIME NECESSARY. SO WE PARTED WAYS AND I TOOK A STAB AT DRAWING AGAIN.

     MY COUSIN WAS DRAWING ON A TABLET WITH A STYLUS. HE INTRODUCED ME TO THE POTENTIAL OF HOW ART COULD BE DONE USING NEW TECHNOLOGY. HE LET ME PLAY AROUND WITH IT AND I STARTED TO DRAW A DAGGER. I HAD A ROUGH IDEA FOR WHAT I WANTED. SO I LOOSELY SCRIBBLED DOWN THE CONCEPT AND IT SURPRISED ME HOW WELL IT TURNED OUT, IT CAME TO ME SO NATURALLY  ALL OF THE SUDDEN AND IT FELT GOOD TO DRAW AGAIN.

     THAT EVENING MY THOUGHTS KEPT ME UP ALL NIGHT. I KEPT HEARING THE PHRASE, "GO GET AN IPAD. I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU."

     I IGNORED IT BECAUSE IT WAS JUST ANOTHER EXPENSE THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE THE CASH FOR AND I'M NOTORIOUS FOR BLOWING MY MONEY ON GAMES AND TECHNOLOGY. BUT THE VOICE WOULDN'T STOP. IT KEPT NAGGING ME DAY AFTER DAY, THE SAME THING "GO GET AN IPAD. I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU." IT JUST WOULDN'T STOP AND IT WAS ALMOST STARTED MAKING ME NAUSEOUS. ALL DAY AND NIGHT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I KINDA FELT LIKE I WAS GOING CRAZY 'CAUSE IT FELT LIKE IT WASN'T MY THOUGHTS.

   

     FINALLY, I CALLED MY WIFE AT WORK 'CAUSE I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE AND TOLD HER WHAT WAS GOING ON. I SAID WITH A NERVOUS CHUCKLE, "I THINK GOD IS TELLING ME TO GO BUY AN IPAD."

 

     NOW LET'S JUST PAUSE FOR A SECOND. ALL YOU MARRIED MEN AND WOMEN OUT THERE, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME! IT COULD BE HAZARDOUS FOR YOUR HEALTH. LIKE, "HEY BABE, I THINK GOD IS TELLING ME I NEED TO GO GET A 70" 4K TV AND A PS4." THAT WAS BASICALLY WHAT I FELT LIKE I WAS DOING.

     BUT THIS REPETITIVE PHRASE WOULDN'T STOP. AND THIS WAS THE CRAZY PART, SHE WAS LIKE: "THEN YOU BETTER DO IT."

 

     "BUT WE HAVE NO MONEY," I SAID.

     "WE'LL BE FINE," SHE RESPONDED CALMLY, "JUST PUT IT ON THE CREDIT CARD."

     HER RESPONSE WAS SO CALM AND CONFIDENT IT SCARED ME, IN FACT I WAS LIKE, "WHO ARE YOU?"

 

     THIS GIRL HATES CREDIT CARDS WITH A PASSION AND THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY THAT THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

     JUST TYPING THIS IS RAISING MY ADRENALINE LEVELS. I GUESS THIS IS WHAT YOU WOULD CALL DIVINE INTERVENTION, MY FRIENDS. BUT ALL JOKING ASIDE, WHAT FAITH...SUCH A SIMPLE FAITH, SHE EXPRESSED. I LOVE HER AND AM INSPIRED BY MY WIFE DAILY. SHE BELIEVES IN ME AND THIS GAME FAR MORE THAN I DO SOMETIMES. I'VE SEEN HER MOVE MOUNTAINS. AMAZING!

     AS I WAS DRIVING TO GET IT "THE VOICE" WOULD NOT STOP... AND NOW IT WAS ALMOST IN THE FORM OF JOYOUS LAUGHTER, "I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU!"

 

     MY TRIPS TO BEST BUY ARE USUALLY EXCITING, PLAYFUL AND TYPICALLY EXPENSIVE. BUT THIS WAS NERVE RACKING AND I HAD NO IDEA WHY. I MEAN, I WAS GETTING A NEW TOY WITHOUT HAVING TO BEG OR BARGAIN, RIGHT? SO THEN I STARTED TO THINK, "I GET IT. I'M GONNA FIND A DEAL AND I'M GOING TO GET A DIRT CHEAP FLOOR MODEL OR SOMETHING." NOPE...I WALKED OUT WITH THE MOST EXPENSIVE AND BIGGEST SCREEN, AN APPLE PEN AND THE MOST EXPENSIVE CASE AND SCREEN PROTECTER WITH THE PROTECTION PLAN BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THEY HAD AND IT WAS ALL FULL PRICE. I WENT HOME THAT NIGHT WITH THE WORST BUYER'S REMORSE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE.

 

     BUT I CRACKED IT OPEN, CHARGED THE PEN AND BEGAN TO SCRIBBLE. AND JUST LIKE THAT I WAS DRAWING AGAIN. TOTALLY UNSURE OF MYSELF, I PUT THE PEN TO THE PAD AND IT JUST POURED OUT OF ME LIKE WATER. EVERY DAY MY WIFE WOULD COME HOME AND I'D HAVE TWO, SOMETIMES THREE, FINISHED IMAGES. PENCILED, INKED, COLORED AND SHADED. I WOULD SEE A PIECE OF SCRIPTURE AND THAT SCRIPTURE WOULD BECOME A WEAPON IN MY MIND'S EYE.

 

    FOR EXAMPLE: 

      DRAWING IN DIGITAL GAVE ME THE ABILITY TO BUILD EFFECTS THAT I COULD HAVE NEVER REACHED 20 YEARS AGO. THE FIRST PICTURE I DREW WAS A STORM ON A BLACK BACKGROUND OVER A SEA OF BLACK WITH LIGHTNING FLASHING AND I REMEMBER THINKING, "GOD PAINTS ON A BLACK CANVAS. HE MOVED ACROSS THE EXPANSE OF DARKNESS AND SAID LET THERE BE LIGHT." THE STARS AND THEIR BEAUTY COULD NOT BE SEEN IF THEY WEREN'T SHINING THROUGH THE BLACK OF SPACE. TEARS RAN DOWN MY FACE AS I REMEMBERED THE DARK TIMES IN MY LIFE; THE RAGE, THE DRUG USE AND THE THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE. AND HE SAW ME THROUGH THE DARK AND PULLED ME TO MY FEET AND SAID, "I HAVE GREAT THINGS FOR YOU. I DID NOT GIVE YOU A SPIRIT OF FEAR BUT OF LOVE AND POWER AND A SOUND MIND." AND HE FILLED ME WITH LIGHT. AND STILL, LOOKING AT THAT STORMY PICTURE, I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, "CAN I WALK ON THOSE WATERS?"

 

     WITHIN A MONTH, I HAD OVER 60 IMAGES READY FOR CARDS. IT WAS SUPERNATURAL. TO ME IT WAS A SUPER POWER LIKE PETER PARKER WHIPPING THROUGH THE CITY FOR THE FIRST TIME. MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY WERE IN DISBELIEF. MY WIFE AND PARENTS FIRST RESPONSE AFTER SEEING A NEW PICTURE WAS "YOU DREW THAT?" AND I WAS OFTEN IN DISBELIEF MYSELF.

     AFTER A FEW WEEKS, I REALIZED THE MIRACLE WASN'T THAT I COULD DRAW WELL OVERNIGHT WITH NO TRAINING OR PRACTICE, BECAUSE THERE ARE TONS OF AMAZING ARTISTS OUT THERE THAT HAVE NATURAL SKILL -- NO TRAINING REQUIRED; IT'S THAT I HEARD A VOICE CALL ME OUT OF MY FEAR TO SHOW ME SOMETHING THAT HE COULDN'T WAIT TO SHARE. HE MADE HIMSELF SO KNOWN TO ME THROUGH GIVING ME SOMETHING BACK THAT I HAD TOSSED AWAY INTO A DARK DUSTY BOX AND MADE A WAY FOR ME TO DO SOMETHING THAT I LOVE SO MUCH. ALL I HAD TO DO WAS TRUST THAT IT WAS HIM SPEAKING.

     THEN CAME THE GAME AND THE PLAYABILITY, THE MECHANICS AND THE GRAPHIC DESIGN AND ON AND ON. HE WOULD GIVE ME KNOWLEDGE OF THINGS I OTHERWISE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT AND IT HAPPENED SO FAST I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER HOW I GOT FROM ONE POINT TO THE NEXT, BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT WAS ALL HIM USING MY HANDS, EYES AND HEART. 

     

     THEN CAME THE WRITINGS. KEEP IN MIND, I READ A LOT OF COMICS BUT NEVER REALLY ANY NOVELS. YET THESE STORIES POURED FROM ME SO QUICKLY THAT I COULDN'T GET THEM OUT FAST ENOUGH. DESIGNING THIS WEBSITE IS ANOTHER THING AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.  BUT THAT'S ANOTHER STORY ENTIRELY. 

     DURING MY JOURNEY OF PRODUCING ALL THE FACETS OF THIS GAME I MET A MAN NAMED DON LEWIS, A FRIEND OF MY UNCLE'S. HE WAS INVITED TO THANKSGIVING AND WAS LISTENING TO ME TALK ABOUT THE GAME AND GOT EXCITED. HE RAN OUT TO HIS CAR TO GRAB HIS PORTFOLIO OF PAINTINGS AND IMMEDIATELY OFFERED TO PAINT THE GAME BOARD FOR ME. I WAS BLOWN AWAY. I KEPT ASKING HIM HOW MUCH AND HE KEPT SAYING, "NO, I NEED TO DO THIS; IT'S A FAITH THING." WITHIN A MONTH, EVEN DURING A MOVE ACROSS STATES, HE PAINTED A MASSIVELY DETAILED GAME BOARD THAT HAS LONG SINCE BEEN ALTERED FROM ITS ORIGINAL LAYOUT, BUT EVERY ELEMENT WAS STILL USED. IT WAS EXACTLY HOW I ENVISIONED IT. THAT WAS AN AMAZING GIFT. THANK YOU, DON, FOR THAT. 

     AT ONE POINT, A FRIEND ASKED ME, "WHY ARE YOU MAKING THIS?" THE QUESTION CONFUSED ME BECAUSE I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW WHAT HE MEANT OR IF I EVEN KNEW.  BUT MY IMMEDIATE RESPONSE WAS, "IT'S THE GAME I ALWAYS WANTED TO PLAY." AS I THOUGHT MORE ABOUT IT, IT'S REALLY THE STORY I ALWAYS WANTED TO TELL. PLUS I LOVE GAMES. ALL KINDS OF GAMES: VIDEO GAMES, BOARD GAMES, MYSTERY GAMES, ROLL PLAYING GAMES. ALL OF IT. AND THE CHRISTIAN WORLD HAS TAPPED INTO AND EXPRESSED THEIR FAITH THROUGH ALL KINDS OF ART FORMS, BE IT MUSIC, MOVIES, TV SHOWS, PAINTINGS, ETC. BUT NEVER REALLY TOO MUCH IN THE GAMING WORLD, AND THAT'S VERY MUCH A HUGE PART OF OUR CULTURE. EVERYBODY GAMES IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER: CARD GAMES TO MONOPOLY, VIDEO AND PHONE GAMES AND THE LIST GOES ON. 

    

     BUT OVER TIME, IT HAS BECOME A TESTIMONY TO THE POWER OF CHRIST IN MY LIFE AND HOW REAL AND ALIVE HE TRULY IS. HE TOOK MY PASSIONS AND DREAMS AND GAVE ME THE ABILITY TO MAKE SOMETHING SO MUCH BIGGER THAN MYSELF, AND NOW I GET TO SHARE IT WITH ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TAKE PART. AND THIS IS WHAT THE UNSEEN IS ABOUT: A RAGTAG GROUP OF EVERYDAY PEOPLE WHO ARE GIVEN SUPERNATURAL GIFTS AND POWERS THROUGH THE MIDST OF THEIR PAIN, DOUBT AND SUFFERING. THEY HAVE BEEN CHARGED BY GOD TO USE THAT POWER TO BRING LIGHT AND TO HELP RESCUE VICTIMS FROM THEIR DARKEST PLACES GIVING THEM HOPE AND A CHARGE TO FIGHT ON.  BUT IT'S NOT AN EASY ROAD; IT'S A NARROW STREET FILLED WITH NAIL BITING COMBAT AGAINST A HORDE OF DEADLY ENEMIES AT EVERY TURN AND CHALLENGES LURKING IN EVERY SHADOW...BUT AT THE END OF THE RACE, THERE'S AN EXPLOSIVE VICTORY THAT MAKES IT ALL WORTHWHILE!
