Faither is an exorcist simulator/RPG where you play the role of an exorcist who deals with a series of demonic possession in a mysterious village.

Priestoffers, among others, demanding gameplay, a dark history, numerous RPG elements and unconventional graphic design.

Priest is an RPG that takes you on a adventure in which you, the exorcist, will have to cure a forgotten settlement from the evil spirits that taken over the occupants. The game’s action is set in a mysterious village where a series of unexplained possessions take place.

Choose your own path to save these mortals. Prepare yourself to do rituals, widen your skills in freeing people from their curse. Get to know the weaknesses of demons and learn various prayers which will help you banish the devil within the people. Use the blessed artefacts and seek help from your fellow priests, the bishop and the nuns. You will also receive help from people you saved such as a tailor, a barber, an alchemist, a butcher and many more. See for yourself as the community comes back to its former glory thanks to you.

The key part of Priest will be driving out demons from the bodies of possessed villagers. The player will need to adapt his actions to the specific case and select the correct remedy using, for example, prayers or equipment. At the same time, one needs to remember about the condition and strength of the exorcist. As the creators explain, the gameplay will be varied by numerous additional motives, including, for example, using the assistance of previously rescued persons.


Priest is a combination of Christian mythology with dark fantasy. We based it upon real testimonies concerning exorcism as well as general works of pop culture, i.e. novels, films and series. Black metal and Polish folklore also inspired us, so there will be a number of relevant references” – says one of the creators of the new game, Michał Jod.

“We give a lot of freedom. The player determines the path of action and the method the several dozen demons in the village are dealt with. The development of the exorcist also has a wide range. It concerns features and specific skills – grouped under several different schools of exorcism. What's equally important, Priest will not be a so-called self-play – you will face a real challenge. Even if the player decides on co-op" – continues Jod.

Key Features:

  • Complete freedom with no restrictions during your progression through the game.
  • Dynamic encounters requiring prayers and artifacts picking as well as stamina management.
  • Over 30 demons with the unique abilities and the fighting styles.
  • 4 skill trees to expand: classic, magic, engineer and barbarian.
  • Character customisation which includes wardrobe, hairstyle, skin colour and sex.
  • Over 50 Households to Save.
  • Access to a presbytery where you will prepare yourself before the fights.
  • Rich and dark history gathered from the saved occupants of the village.
  • Game in traditional co-op split screen also available.

Priest will make its debut on PC (Steam) in summer 2019, with current generation console version being considered.
