Forgive Me Father is OUT NOW!

1C Entertainment and Byte Barrel have launched the Lovecraftian retro FPS Forgive Me Father out of Early Access on PC today, with the full version landing on Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store and other digital stores. 

With a retro FPS flair and a horror comic book style, Forgive Me Father throws players into the shoes of either a Priest or a Journalist battling maddening monstrosities while wielding a powerful arsenal of weapons. It’s up to players to choose how to unravel the mysteries of the world and which abilities to invest in, so they can battle the madness that creeps in with every horrifying encounter.

Ernest Krystian, CEO of Byte Barrel, said:

“Working on Forgive Me Father was an exciting journey for us. We started as a small team that grew over time, with everyone working on the game being not only talented but also incredibly passionate. Thanks to player feedback, we implemented many features we didn't even think of, making the game bigger and better than we ever thought possible. We are all really enthusiastic and cannot wait to hear what everyone thinks about the full version of the game!”

Anton Ravin, Commercial Director, 1C Publishing, said:

“We are proud that we’re bringing the excellent Forgive Me Father to market together with the amazingly talented team at Byte Barrel. Our goal as a publisher is to continue working with independent game developers worldwide and enable them to achieve their best.”
