Arachnophobe alert! There be spiders here.

The Padre is a voxel-based 3D horror adventure with a retro-game feel.

The character you play is also called The Padre. Your task is to unravel the mystery of a cardinal’s disappearance.

You find yourself trapped with an evil presence in an old mansion. You’ll not only be solving puzzles, you’ll be fending off monsters by using firearms, faith and even your bare hands. And…uh-oh…the game has permadeath.

You must survive over 200 scenes of horror. Each of the mansion’s rooms offers a new challenge and different kind of death.

According to the developer, “The Padre is not an easy game suitable for anyone – in the vein of LucasArts classics and Alone in the Dark, it’s a difficult journey, designed specifically for gamers keen on solving complicated puzzles through a lengthy gameplay experience.” We are promised a narrative full of twists and turns with an astonishing ending.

Developer Shotgun with Glitters is “a group of game-crazed enthusiasts working in a virtual team that are not limited by country borders. Although originating in Europe, we have team members all over the world who share our passion. We are on a quest to create games missing from the market. Games that don’t exist anymore or never exited before.”

The Padre is currently available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PS4. The game’s Steam page is located here.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
