April 18

The Padre is here to save your Soul

It has been a long and stressful road for us. Countless mugs of coffee and unslept nights later we can finally say it out loud – We’ve done it! The Padre is coming out worldwide and multiplatform! We’ve dreamt about this day for months and we cannot wait how it will be received by media, but most importantly by the wonderful community of video game enthusiasts out there.

The project grew from our love of retro games, genres that for most have been long forgotten – Point and Click Adventure games and the beginnings of the Horror Adventure genre. This is why we used voxel graphics (or if you prefer a less technical term 3D Pixel Art), filled the game with easter eggs and made the protagonist a witty smart-ass taking us back to the golden age of action films. Of course, we left out some gameplay anachronisms that would make the game less-enjoyable but we preserved the aesthetic and feel as much as it was humanly possible.

The IDDQD code is no longer necessary, we’re leaving god mode off and the rest is up to you. We hope you will enjoy playing The Padre as much as we adored creating it.

April 11

The highly anticipated moment has finally come – The Padre will be releasing April 18th!

Before we go into any details, we wanted to thank each and everyone who has supported the Padre in its Early Access period. You guys are the reason why we decided to develop games!

Now let’s move to some details:

What has changed since the last Early Access update?
- New story elements and new scenes
- Extended end game
- New cut scenes
- Melee and ranged combat reformed. It is much more convenient and straightforward now.
- New inventory and UI
- New music, voices, and voiceover elements
- Controller support redesigned
- Improved AI

Important note: The changes were so extensive that the previous saved games will not be working in the new version. We could not keep the consistency with the previous version.
Please start the story from the beginning to see every little addition. Thanks for your patience!

With the final release we will be upping the price to 19,99 USD/EUR. Those of you who have the Early Access version bought fret not! You don’t need to pay a dime for this update. We strongly recommend though you run the game again and see how the story of our demon slaying Padre has been improved.

We hope the updated version will bring you hours of entertainment that will stay with you for a while. Please enjoy the game!

“The Padre is animated using a voxel art style, aiming to give the game a blocky, surreal appearance as players face down quivering creatures and presences that will whittle down the mind.”

“A fabulously freaky voxel based point and click survival horror with a healthy dose of dark humor.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“A voxel tribute to the old horror adventure games”

About This Game

Unravel the mystery of a missing cardinal by solving the riddle of a demonic power you did not expect to come upon. Face your inner demons and fight the power of evil while it seduces your soul. Play as the wittiest, pop-culture referencing priest in video game history and face an ultimate game over, if you make the angels cry you a river.

The Padre is a retro stylised 3D horror adventure game tapping deep into the roots of classic horror games. The dark and striking atmosphere is often cut by the wicked humour of the always witty Padre. You will need to use your brains to solve challenging puzzles, as well as your brawns to fend off monsters, all at the same time while you try to unravel the mysteries of the mansion, yourself and the eternal fight between good and evil. Be weary though, if you fail enough times it’s a permanent GAME OVER for you!
