Doom-style retro shooters are quite common today, so a fairly unique approach is needed to warrant attention. A retro shooter in which you fight the hordes of Cthulhu, with a whole 2D / 3D comic atmosphere reminiscent XIII? And can you beat a crazy scientist to death with a magic broom? Yes, it will.
Forgive me, Father is slated to release on Steam Early Access in October, but even as an incomplete game it already looks pretty entertaining. If you choose to play as a priest or journalist, you will reap the enemies that mix all the classic troops of the myths of Cthulhu, like a helghast-looking mental soldier with several breathing tubes / tentacles running down his chest. Some of these tentacle boys even put on nursing suits to match all the decrepit hospital beds. There are also countless zombies, and what appears to be a heavyweight English man, who quickly fades into his sleeves as the word "blow to the head" flashes in the air. Presumably, we will fight him with the Great Old Man at some point.
What I really dig into is the animations that accompany many of these terrible deaths. He shoots a tentacle soldier in the face mask and will actually deflate, presumably suffocating them. Shoot the green goo tank in the back and it will explode all over your jacket. It really helps sell the rotting flesh vibrations in which more bloody adaptations of Cthulhu thrive, and it’s all set in Lovecraft’s familiar places, such as Gothic universities, moonlit shipyards, and a crypt or two.
Weapons help differentiate things, and apart from the obvious shotgun, machine gun, and crossbow, we have tools like the holy cross, a broom that destroys enemies, a grenade launcher powered by a green goo, and an infusion throwing knife. of demonic darkness. circells. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Cthulhu game without any mechanical common sense, and developer Byte Barrel says your fluctuating madness will unlock new powers for any character.
Forgive Me Father is being released by 1C Entertainment, whose previous games include Ion Fury, Graven and Deep Sky Derelicts and will be released on October 28th.
