The Padre Key Art

You don’t need super realistic visuals and heart-pounding audio to be able to create a decent horror title. At least that’s what the teams at Shotgun With Glitters and Feardemic think as they release their retro stylised 3D horror adventure, The Padre, to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

The Padre is a game that is found tapping deep into the roots of the classic horror genre, as it delivers a thrilling demon hunting SINulation to console and PC. It follows the trail of a lost cardinal, The Padre, who soon finds himself alone and without his demon-slaying tools inside a dreary mansion where a larger supernatural power is at play. But fear not, as the dark and striking atmosphere is often cut by the wicked humour of the witty Padre.

Gameplay wise this will see you having to use the old grey matter in an attempt to solve a number of puzzles found within, all whilst utilising your brawn to fight back against monsters. But that’s not all and at the exact same time, multiple mysteries will begin to unravel, as you learn the inner secrets of both the mansion, and your own dark past. The problem is, take in too many incorrect actions and you’ll find it’s game over… for good.

The Padre releases on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in digital format only and will set you back a cool £16.79. If you fancy a horror title that is a little different to the norm, then you should be found heading to a digital store of your choosing right now. Personally, we reckon the Xbox Store is the place to be.
