Prague, Czechia - April 7, 2022 - 1C Entertainment and Byte Barrel have launched Lovecraftian retro FPS Forgive Me Father out of Early Access on PC today, with the full version landing on Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store and other digital stores. 


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

We are all really enthusiastic and cannot wait to hear what everyone thinks about the full version of the game!”
