The story outline for The Inquisitor is as follows, “In an alternate 1500 A.D., Jesus escaped his crucifixion and, instead of forgiveness, sought violent vengeance on all the non-believers. Centuries later, in a dark and blood-soaked world, an army of zealot Inquisitors continue to enforce their so-called Holy Law. In The Inquisitor, players will take on the role of Mordimer Madderdin, servant of God and an Inquisitor anointed by the High Bishops of Hez Hezron. You will commence your journey in Koenigstein, a city plagued with sin and religious transgression, where it is your duty to investigate its corruption and crimes. Use strategic sleuthing to track down and interrogate suspects, piece together the evidence or even resort to brute force. Your judgement awaits. Will you show mercy, or will you enforce retribution in the name of the Holy Law?”
The gameplay itself will be a mix of detective work and combat with players also having to decide the fate of those they investigate. There are multiple branches to the story which will lead to different outcomes depending on the choices made, whether it showing mercy or enacting the vengeance Jesus sought himself. Mordimer has the power to enter a place called the Unworld, where he can delve further for clues. However, this Unworld is guarded by a dark force that will attack if it senses Mordimer’s presence.
The Inquisitor is currently set to release in Q4 2023.
