The retro theme is strong in Forgive Me Father, a first person shooter inspired by the twisted works of H.P. Lovecraft. This game developed by Byte Barrel and published by 1C Entertainment is set to release into Early Access on PC via Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, and other digital stores today at 7pm CEST / 10am PT.
Here, players are on a maddening journey as the only sane person left on a God-forsaken world. Face hordes of the possessed, eldritch monsters and other unspeakable abominations in white-knuckle run-and-gun combat. Maintain at least a shred of sanity, as madness levels dynamically change with each terrifying turn. Explore a hand-drawn universe, appearing like it was ripped out of a comic book, in an attempt to restore some semblance of reason to society. Search every corner of a horrifying world full of hidden and hard-to-reach areas, while uncovering the mystery behind the damned.
With touches of classic FPS from the 90s, Forgive Me Father brings a custom combat experience, allowing players to decide how to evolve their equipment while maintaining their humanity. Time-lapse animations and elements of 2D art in 3D environments are affected by levels of madness, delivering a fully immersive and frightening experience.
The Early Access version debuts with almost half of the content planned for the full release, including one of the first of two playable characters, six weapons, four skills, 15 enemy types, and two bosses spread throughout the 12 levels of the first two Acts of the story. A detailed roadmap is available to all players who want to see what’s planned until the end of the Early Access period.
Forgive Me Father is available in Early Access now via Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, and other digital stores for 14.99 USD / 14.99 EUR / 12.99 GBP with a 15% launch discount during the first week. The 1.0 release on PC is planned for 2022. For more information, please visit the official 1C Entertainment website or follow their Facebook and Twitter/
