Based on the Inquisitor Cycle book series by Polish fantasy author Jacek Piekara, I, The Inquisitor is a story-driven game with an emphasis on an outstanding emotions-based dialogue system.

I, the Inquisitor is a story-driven, dark fantasy adventure game with action elements and difficult moral choices. Based on the bestselling Inquisitor book series by Jacek Piekara, the game takes place in an alternative religious timeline. Once nailed to the cross and near death, Jesus becomes consumed by utter rage. He breaks free and unleashes violent vengeance on all the non-believers. Centuries pass and now an army of zealot Inquisitors brutally enforce the faith in this bloodsoaked Church.

You are Mordimer Medderdin, an Inquisitor in God's service - sent to the town of Königstein which is plagued by a series of mysteries and sin. Solve the various cases and crimes of those who have transgressed agaisnt the faith, all while uncovering the truth of a darker evil from another realm that is trying to enter the world of the living.

Unbeknownst to those around him, Mordimer has the ability to enter the mysterious Unworld. There he can discover the deeper secrets that suspects have tried to hide in their souls. But there is a grave risk to venture into this world as a dark force reigns supreme here and will do everything it can to destroy you for stepping foot into its realm.

In a world where Jesus unleashed vengeance instead of forgiveness, you must now enforce his blood hungry faith as an Inquisitor.


Key Features:

  • Be the Ultimate Holy Judge and Jury – Decide the fates of those under your investigation based on how far or close you want to enforce the rule of this vengeful faith in God.
  • A Morally Tainted, Non-Linear Tale - This is a dark and gritty story centred around a religion preaching revenge and violence. Multiple branching story choices will test your morality.
  • Enlightened Sleuthing - Use various unique skills and abilities that allow to solve the various crimes and mysteries that have befallen Konigstein.

  • Persuasive Interrogations - As an Inquisitor, you have been given free reign to use more questionable methods and tools to get suspects to reveal “the truth”. These optional interrogations date back to the times of the real Inquisition and it’s up to you to decide if and how much force to apply to those under your investigation
  • Let Your Sword Do the Talking - A full sword combat system means various cases will let or even require you to use brute force.

I, the Inquisitor is being coordinated by game producer Jakub Karólewski, who was formerly with Wrocław’s Techland.
