Exercise or excorcise your inner beast
Players must choose to either unleash their inner demon for a short-term gain or restrain it, striving for long-term sanity and control. Advanced skill trees and perks will allow you to stay sane and protect your people or succumb to powerful insanity, killing everyone in your way. Your moral choices will affect relations with your companions and their destinies.
“We’ve always wanted to create a tactical RPG dealing with mature themes that will challenge your moral compass. Exploring this dark part of our human history has allowed us to create something truly unique. Now it’s time to bring in the players on our journey to complete this vision. We hope they will see the promise and support our team in completing our vision! – Piotr Pacynko, Founder & Creative Director at False Prophet
