Retro-Inspired FPS “Forgive Me Father” Coming to Nintendo Switch
Fulqrum Publishing has announced that the highly acclaimed retro-inspired first-person shooter, Forgive Me Father, will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch on September 28th. Originally released on Steam last year, the game has garnered a strong following and positive reviews, and now console players will have the opportunity to experience its unique blend of old-school FPS gameplay and Lovecraftian horror.
A Comic Book World Filled with Lovecraftian Horrors
Developed by Byte Barrel, Forgive Me Father takes players on a journey through a comic book-inspired world, teeming with grotesque Lovecraftian creatures. As the player, you’ll have to manage your “Madness Level” to gain various perks and unleash gruesome kills on the creepy enemies that stand in your way.
While the level of gore may not be for everyone, the game’s comic book-inspired visuals add a touch of cartoony character to the increasingly grotesque monsters, creating a unique and visually captivating experience.
Key Features of Forgive Me Father
Here are some of the notable features that players can expect from Forgive Me Father:
