'The Padre' Available On Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

The Padre is a suspenseful 3D survival-horror adventure featuring old-school narrative storytelling, filled with humor and horror game and movie references.

On the path to redemption, the main character Alexander Padre, a Catholic Priest makes the ultimate sacrifice and must solve mysteries while exploring a dangerous Lovecraftian universe. This game is filled with touches of humor, and nostalgic Horror game/movie references all throughout the voice acted chapters.

The Padre - a former demon hunter - has taken on the impossible, and looks to earn his once rightful place in Heaven as he relieves the hours before his fate was decided by his own hands.

In his search for redemption, players will be tasked with uncovering the truth of why he did, but also overcoming any obstacles in their way. Some of the challenges that face them include finding hidden items to proceed down their path, fending off the demons that get in their way with torches, guns, crowbars, and even machetes to stay alive.

As a point-and-click title, there’s no doubt that combat will be a part of The Padre’s venture into redeeming his now lost soul. In the game, players will have to go into combat against unforeseen demonic forces. As the game is a point and click, players will attack enemies by clicking on them and taking aim.
While using firearms such as the pistol or the rifle, players will find themselves being required to keep the crosshairs on their target, which will increase the probability of hitting their target, but also the amount of damage that the creature will take from the player’s attacks.

The Padre launched today on Steam in early access, selling for 33% off the regular 14.99 USD price (Sale around 10.00 USD) during launch week.

“In The Padre, we used our own hybrid voxel art style to bring this story to life. We’ve managed to infuse the lights, the textures, and scenery into something unique to create an intense atmosphere, one that helps fuel our powerful narrative into something extraordinary. We wanted to be able to give the 3D pixel adventure genre something new with our horror game, one that infuses point-and-click adventuring mechanics with our style of combat,” Bence Zilahy, Game Designer.
