19 JUNE 2019 – Lesser Evil Games today announce that their dark RPG “The Executioner“, due to unforeseen circumstances, has moved release date from July 17th to July 31st 2019.
It’s only a small delay for fans to get their hands on the unique blend of medieval storytelling, sanity management, and the brutal moral conundrums only an executioner could face. The extra time should give the team the opportunity to polish up this harrowing tale of a man who tortures people for a living and challenges us to face the monster that lives inside us all.
As shown in the new teaser trailer including amended release date, the predominantly text-based adventure promises a dark and unsettling atmosphere in a world filled with moral ambiguity.
The Executioner will be a multipart epic adventure into the cruel and unforgiving political sphere of medieval times. Starting with the base game, this brutal tale will follow the newly appointed Royal Executioner on a journey to retain his sanity in the darkest of times.
Lead Writer, Elena Sivakova said: “The sad news is that this grim situation forces us to move the release date by two weeks, the good news is that it looks like we can add one very interesting and unusual feature during these two weeks. In indie-development, we mysteriously call this feature ‘cutscenes'”.
The Executioner will launch on Steam July 31st 2019.
About The Executioner
The Executioner puts you in the shoes of a man who tortures people for a living and has to fight to preserve his own waning sanity.
Fusing elements of traditional roleplaying with investigation, exploration and moral decision-making, it invites players to take on the role of an executioner who must seek a signed confession from those he is about to put to death – and there are many means of gaining one, not all of them pleasant.
Your own torture chamber – study your victims, find their weak spot, and use your extensive arsenal (or their loved ones) to break them.
An occult underground – a town filled with rich mysticism built around Medieval artefacts: the Hand of Glory, Mandrake Root, and Tarot Cards.
A dark economy – a market in dead flesh, with you as the main supplier.
A walking lie detector – your character’s unique perceptive abilities make him a walking lie detector and opens the door into the occult.
Staying sane – as a torturer and executioner, you’ll need to constantly manage your sanity to survive in this world.
