And, by the way, 1C Intertainment and Byte Barrel have already created an offering for Halloween. It’s not just sugar skulls. It’s a shockingly bloody retro-themed punch that features various horrors that are presented in an Lovecraftian manner. We can tell you if it’s sweet or vile, and we’ll tell you in the trailer.

The game Forgive Me Father is a classic corridor shooter influenced by gothic horror stories from the 20th century. The majority of the game is H.F. Lovecraft, but there will also be Stephen King ghost stories, memories about Edgar Allan Poe, and other authors of dark fiction comics, horror films, and comics.
In the story, we play a priest trapped in a city ravaged by a mania. The darkest and occult witchcraft, the ancient prophecies, and God-awful trials – all packed into one delicious food sludge that the Holy Father has to deal with (almost) all by himself.
The worshiper will have to face the resurrected dead and insane sectarians who almost lost their human-face sailors and Cthulhu-Nazis’ army as well as the enormous and difficult bosses. In the present, there are two bosses in the game. Once you’ve played it, you’ll know who these vile creatures are were created by the game’s creators.
What I enjoyed:
Aesthetics and atmospheric. Forgive Me Father draws a lot out of classic Wolfenstein and Quake, more than Doom as well as Duke Nukem. in a way similar to Blood as well as a little identical to Eldritch (by increasing the irrational fear that is influenced by Lovecraftian mythology, possibly). You’re an extremely excellent priest in this game; however, the emotional tension from the haunting locations and frequent surprise attacks is never going away.
The game combines three-dimensional environments with two-dimensional enemies, weapons, and scenes. The art style is similar to Chris Bourass’ work, the stories are served in a gothic comic book, and the music ranges from dark ambient to ominous synth to adrenaline-driven heavy metal.
The locations are filled with hidden areas containing armor, ammunition, and cunning traps. Once inside, players are faced with the need to fight numerous enemies escape from walls that are moving in search of a safer climb or leverthat will open the door to liberation.
Priestly abilities are inextricably connected to the mechanisms of insane. He is armed with a torch that helps dispel darkness, a Bible that provides temporary protection and a healing cross, and holy water that could cause horror spawns to go insane. When he earns madness points, the hero increases his abilities, which can also be developed through the skills tree.
What’s not to love?
Madness does not always create a stronger player. When the protagonist is totally insane (which is often the case during boss fights and survival fights) the game is in black and white. It’s an elegant move however it can be a challenge to aim when fighting in a dark space and bosses are difficult to escape.
Do you think it is worth taking a look?
The game Forgive Me Father is an enthralling attraction, a bizarre horror cave filled with exhibits that appeared to be alive and chased for your flesh. It is highly recommended to those who love old-fashioned horror shooters, with a stunning and well-thought out concept.
In addition, up to November 2 , the game will be bought at a 15 discount on GOG, Steam and Epic Games Store. Forgive Me Father is scheduled to be available in 2022 and will be released to be played on PC only.
