Taking a cue from retro shooter DUSK, the classic Alone In The Dark, and sprinkling in a bit of Duke Nukem and Blood‘s attitude and gore with voxel-based graphics is Shotgun with Glitters’ The Padre. While it’s still in Early Access, The Padre recently unveiled a new teaser trailer. In addition, the game will make an appearance at PAX West later this month.
Mixing a blend of horror and humour, the game “retains all of the classic horror [game] tropes, while being genuinely funny in the process.” You play as a man of the cloth searching for Benedictus, your old mentor, inside a haunted mansion. You’ve got to use your wits to solve puzzles, hunt down “never-seen-before” horrors, and along the way, discover a little about yourself and the world around you.
As mentioned, the game is still in Early Access at the moment, but you can keep up to date on its Steam page. And don’t forget that if you are headed to PAX West to check it out.
