Press release

The game’s creators from the Polish studio Delirma are preparing diverse gameplay and an extensive system of reputation and moral choices, among other things. At the same time, Delirma is also currently working on the game Faither, which premiere is planned for the middle of next year.

The two new games, Priest Simulator and Faither by Delirma, will appear in 2019. Both will be released by Ultimate Games S.A.

Priest Simulator and moral choices

Priest Simulator is a first-person game. The new production of the Delirma studio will allow for taking on the role of a priest and performing specific activities related to him. According to the creators, their work will present the life of priests in an unconventional convention.

In our new game you will feel like a priest, the most privileged person in the village. We focus on an open world in which the main path of the storyline will be intertwined with intriguing side tasks. There will be plenty of standard activities – e.g. preaching sermons, visiting people and the sacraments but there will also be some more unusual activities such exorcisms and battles with demons” says one of the creators of the new game, Michał Jod.

Priest Simulator will also, among others, possibilities to develop the character. In turn, money collected in the game can be used, e.g. for the modernization of the church, car upgrades, weapons needed to fight demons or the development of an underground laboratory for preparing incense and holy water.

The game's creators also offer an extensive system of reputation and moral choices.

Life is the art of selecting the lesser evil. Such will also be the case in our game, where we will solve problems in different ways or not solve them at all. If a resident asks us for help, then, of course, we will be able to help that person but the game will also offer alternatives less beneficial for the needy. We’ll kill the devil and receive from the client an envelope with a reward or we allow the demon to depart and we obtain an ability associated with black magic. The decisions will be reflected in the reputation indicator and we invest the money in developing the parish, car upgrades and better weapons” explains Michał Jod.

The date of the game's release was initially set on December 25, 2019.
