Eldritch retro-shooter Forgive Me Father out now on consoles

One of our favorite retro-flavored FPS’ in recent years, Fulqrum Publishing and Byte Barrel Forgive Me Father is out on consoles.

Lovecraft, but with a lotta guns

Soon to get a sequel, the original Forgive Me Father is still a pretty great retro-FPS. The title has a definite 90s vibe to it, but also a flair of originality with a “comic book” style, specifically in regards to its cadre of nasty foes.

On top of that, it’s loaded with imagination, bringing Lovecraftian themes both into its varied and wild levels, and its arsenal of upgradable weaponry. If you missed it on the PC, where it originally dropped last year, now’s your chance to give it a shot on consoles.

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 world’s mysteries and which abilities to invest in, so they can battle the madness that creeps in with every horrifying encounter.
