Ever wanted to be an exorcist, but don’t want to go through the trouble of having to do the years of training? Would you rather dodge bullets instead of pea soup while doing your exorcism? Then MorbidWare’s The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia might be for you.
As an added bonus, Ellen Burstyn won’t bug you about her daughter.
Set for release on Steam early next year, The Textorcist puts you as Ray Bibbia, a private exorcist who not only faces off against a demonic outbreak within Rome, but must also deal with his dark and sinful past at the same time. Akin to Sega’s cult classic The Typing of the Dead, you must type your exorcisms with your keyboard or joypad, but must also dodge tons of bullets, dealing with puddles of barf, defusing bombs, singing at the mic of a metal show and more.
Oh, and if you make a mistake, you start all over. Practice makes perfect, as they say!
Clearly, the game is tongue in cheek, but given how amazingly fun Typing of the Dead was (and still is), what’s not to say that The Textorcist couldn’t be as fun or more fun?
