Launching next week on Nintendo Switch is The Padre, a retro-stylised 3D horror-adventure game inspired by classics of its genre.
We’ve got some info for you below, taken directly from the game’s press release, but we’d also urge you to give the trailer at the top of the article a watch. As well as showing off some gameplay footage, it talks you through what you can expect to find in the game. There’s a nice comedic twist in play here, with the protagonist wittering away to himself as he explores.
“On the trail of a lost cardinal, The Padre 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! The dark and striking atmosphere is often cut by the wicked humor of the witty Padre.
You will need to use your brains to solve challenging puzzles, as well as your brawns to fend off monsters, all while trying to unravel the mysteries of the mansion and your own dark past.
Be wary though, if you fail enough times its permanent GAME OVER!”
The Padre will launch on 18th April for $19.99 / 19.99€ / £15.49, available directly from the Nintendo Switch eShop.
