You know, so often in video games witch hunters are depicted as the bad guys. Just once I would like a game where I can show those dang witches what’s what. Well, such a game might just be on the way with Asmodev’s upcoming release, Mercyful Flames.
Taking great inspiration from horror themed board games, Mercyful Flames takes place during the dark ages, when hunting witches was a much more popular profession than it is today. You play an inquisitor who must investigate occult going ons and bring the sinful to justice! You’ll have many tools at your disposal such as investigating, bribing, fighting, torture, and the aid of the almighty. So go on and bring those darn witches to justice any way you can.
No release date has been announced as of yet, but according to their Steam page you can expect Mercyful Flames “soon” on PC as well as Nintendo Switch. Check out the press release below for more information:

ABOUT MERCYFUL FLAMES
Welcome to the gloomy times where you’ll get the chance to become an occultist that, due to a quirk of malignant fate, becomes an inquisitor. The wrong person in an incredibly responsible position. Join the ranks of a bloodthirsty church and see how far you’re willing to go to save your beloved one.
Mercyful Flames is a detective adventure RPG inspired by horror board games that’s a slow-paced yet thrilling study of human meanness. Complete dozens of missions, each set in different but equally horrifying scenery. Investigate, bribe, fight, or even torture. Do whatever it takes to achieve your goal, and remember that you’ll be doing it all in the name of love. Or at least keep telling yourself that to remain sane.
