Forgive Me Father 2 arriving on Early Access this month

Is that a little retro, cosmic-horror, FPS action we see creeping our way? You bet it is, as Forgive Me Father 2 is coming up.

Twice forgiven

If you missed out on Forgive Me Father, then you skipped one of the best retro FPS’ in recent years. Crafted to resemble a classic, 90s shooter, albeit with some great modern touches, Forgive Me Father brought Lovecraftian horror to life in some very interesting new ways. Now the sequel is almost here, or it is in Early Access at least.

From Fulqrum Publishing and developer Byte Barrel, part 2 brings back the flavor of the original, with a promised “deeper and darker story” that continues to follow the first game’s Priest as he battles his way to “righteous salvation”. Done in Unreal Engine 5, players can expect a graphical bump-up this time around, plus a reworked sanity system, and more.

Players will be driven to the brink of insanity as they take on hordes of deranged cultists and diverse, eldritch enemies using a vast and varied arsenal of deadly weapons – each featuring powerful variations designed to cause absolute mayhem and wreak utter destruction. A freshly re-imagined and expanded madness system ratchets up the action even further, bestowing unimaginable power to those who choose to fully embrace insanity.

Forgive Me Father 2 elevates the original game’s unique and distinctive, dark comic-like visuals of the original game with improved sprites and models. Players will behold satisfyingly juicy blood effects and witness eye-popping animated gibs flying in all directions, as unimaginable ancient evils are torn asunder. The action is underpinned by a heart-pumping soundtrack that effortlessly blends dark Lovecraftian undertones and atmospherics with face-melting guitars and chest-thumping drums.

Fulqrum Publishing press release

Ready to send some Eldritch terrors back to the void? If so, get ready because Forgive Me Father 2 is set to drop onto Early Access for the PC as of October 19th, 2023. Wanna give it a shot before you buy? Grab the demo that’s out right now and start blasting.
