The game’s action is set in a mysterious village where a series of unexplained possessions take place.
“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.
The key part of the new game 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 will make its debut on the Steam platform the summer of 2019. Ultimate Games does not rule out a version on current generation consoles.
