The Executioner Chapter 1 is a darkly challenging brutal RPG that thrusts players into the shoes of a torturer.

The Executioner is a predominantly text-based adventure promises a harrowing and unsettling atmosphere in a world filled with moral ambiguity.

Fusing a unique blend of medieval storytelling, sanity management, and the brutal moral conundrums only an executioner could face -- this harrowing tale of a man who tortures people for a living will challenge you to face the monster that lives inside of all of us. The decisions are yours, and so are the consequences.

The Executioner will be a multipart epic adventure into the cruel and unforgiving political sphere of medieval times. Starting with Chapter One, this brutal tale will follow the newly appointed Royal Executioner on a journey to retain his sanity in the darkest of times.

Lead Writer, Elena Sivakova said: "We were inspired to create this game by a thought: 'How people, whose work is inflicting pain and killing other humans, actually live?'"

"When Milgram published his research, proving that obedience to authority makes people do terrible things to others, and you don’t have to be an evil Nazi for that, people around the world were horrified: 'Am I also capable of this?'"

"We believe that our game provides an opportunity to live through a hard, painful and rather dark experience - and in the future to avoid the ethic trap in which the participants of Milgram experiment were caught – made ready, actually, to bring another person to death. We want our players to fully understand the price of a lesser evil."

Key Features:

  • The torture chamber: study your victims, find their weak spot, and use your extensive arsenal (or their loved ones) to break them
