About the game

As the only one left with full senses, you embark on a journey in search of answers and relief in this FPS game that is created in a distinctive retro horror comic book style and feels as if it came straight out of Lovecraft's books.
Be aware of your madness level which dynamically changes during gameplay and gives you additional power. Choose your active skills depending on your play style and use them to fight against an eternal evil. Explore this Lovecraft-inspired world that is full of hidden and hard-to-reach areas, and uncover the entire story to solve the mystery of this crazy place.

Feeling of a classic FPS from the 90s

Timelapse animations, opponents, and elements of 2D in a 3D environment; first aid kits and life points, non-reloading weapons, powerups during dynamic combat with numerous opponents.

Custom combat experience

With scripture in one hand and weapons powered by an unknown substance in the other, the player will face the challenge of maintaining their humanity. It is up to the player to decide how their equipment evolves, and to find ways of defeating hordes of unpredictable opponents.

Dynamic level of madness

Directly influencing not only the audio-visual experience, but the gameplay itself, its effect varies depending on the current level of the player’s madness.

Presented in a comic book style

Hand-drawn graphics designed to maintain a distinctive comic book look, where any screenshot from the game could be a part of a new comic book.

Mood straight from Lovecraft's dark novels

All throughout the game, the player will feel the atmosphere of dread and horror that the works of H.P. Lovecraft are renowned for. Surrounded by the occult and forces of eternal evil, experience the feelings of hopelessness, madness, and confusion, and the burning need to find answers and bring back some semblance of reason and sanity to the world.

Many climactic levels and a varied bestiary

A diverse world entirely made by hand, full of interesting enemies ranging from possessed inhabitants to monsters straight out of your worst nightmares.

Two heroes to choose from

Each with its own, unique development tree. Experience the story from the perspective of either a priest or a journalist (available after the early access period).

Game Rant

Overall, however, this is a one-of-a-kind horror FPS delight. All the game’s nuances and features come together to craft an ode to H.P. Lovecraft that the author himself would be proud of. With incredible gunplay, myriad secrets to uncover, a gorgeous aesthetic, and memorable boss encounters, its technical issues don’t quite stop Forgive Me Father from being something a die-hard FPS fanatic looking for a fresh, new experience should miss out on.

Forgive Me Father is certainly atmospheric and a lot of fun, although fans of retro boomer shooters will find much more to like than those who prefer a more modern approach.

8.5 / 10
Forgive Me Father is a good first-person shooter that, despite embracing the retro concept, does not rely on nostalgia to draw players in. I played it relatively cautiously, conserving ammo when I could, and I didn’t feel like the madness system worked against me. But the game is at its best in the big arena fights, with big groups of enemies, a shredding soundtrack, and no option but to take the fight to them.
