About This Game

Take on the role of a war veteran forced into becoming an executioner. Once you've served long enough, you'll be set free and allowed to leave town. But no one told you when that will happen…

You never thought of pursuing torture as a valid career choice, but as they say: work is work. Besides, you know that in addition to forcing confessions, you'll sometimes get more interesting contracts like staking the skull of a dead man accused of vampirism. And that's definitely some variety.

Find out what it's like to be an executioner who is open to bribes. Enemies of the hanged man will try to bribe you to use a short rope and prolong the victim's suffocation. Or maybe the family of a woman condemned to death by crushing will want to ease her suffering for an appropriate fee. Will you accept or will you refuse?

Be indifferent to screams, pleas, begging and assurances of innocence. This isn't kindergarten - it's an old forge fashioned into a torture chamber. And here, you are the master. You rule and divide… mostly through dismemberment.

Carry out punishment, behead commoners and nobility alike. But remember! Each execution must be carried out to the letter, otherwise you face an angry crowd and dissatisfied authorities who may be out for your blood.
