The game puts players back in the cloth of Padre Alexander, the erratic warrior-priest & exorcist protagonist of this twin-stick shooter that combines fast-paced rogue-lite action with strategic base defence phases.
As this wasn’t enough, there’s a FREE day-one DLC! ‘One Shell Straight to Hell X Layers of Fear’ is an unexpected crossover DLC that will make players revisit the creepy hallways of Bloober Team’s acclaimed psychological horror adventure. Moreover, as opposed to previous announcements, the DLC will forever remain available for free!
It’s time to Make Exorcism Great Again!
Game details as shared on Steam:
World-famous fist of the papal order, renowned presenter at Vatican TV, Exorcist at International Association of Exorcists, and the one and only internationally licensed demon-hunting priest, Father Padre Alexander!
Simply known as the Padre to his friends and foes alike, Padre Alexander is a bad-ass demon hunter and a man of the cloth. He is no ordinary priest, being sarcastic towards God, church, and most of all human and demonic behaviour. He is not quite sane as an ordinary person but his insights into human life and tragedy can sometimes resonate with everyman.
Padre comes to assist the Halliwell family, who for generations have been keeping an earthly entrance to hell in check. The portal was quiet for far too long and such the residents of the mansion slowly forgot their task, thinking of their burden more as a fairy tale.
Descend into ever-changing dungeons that overflow with demonic enemies and pit your insane skills and over the top weapon collection against the satanic hordes.
Use an arsenal made of regular weapons using varieties of ammunition, holy weapons drawing on your faith, and unholy weapons craving for your blood.
Gain Blessing points to customize the skill tree that makes you stronger and gives you new useful miracles.
Base defence sessions. When not busy dungeon-crawling, Padre Alexander will have to defend the mansion from waves of enemies both by using his skills and by building traps, global enchantments, and powerups.
While our protagonist got visibly smoother from the original The Padre, the voxel-inspired minimalist art style pervades the spooky environments as much as every character, monster and item.
A collection of monsters that are madder than the Mad Hatter, ranging from the possessed kitchen drawer to drunken long-dead pirate captains, passing through spooky insects and, of course, demons… a lot of demons. And unique bosses with an attitude.
