About this game

Developer: Shotgun with Glitters
Content Rating: Teen


The Padre is a retro stylised 3D horror adventure game tapping deep into the roots of classic horror games. The dark and striking atmosphere is often cut by the wicked humour of the always witty Padre. You will need to use your brains to solve challenging puzzles, as well as your brawns to fend off monsters, all at the same time while you try to unravel the mysteries of the mansion, yourself and the eternal fight between good and evil. Be weary though, if you fail enough times it’s a permanent GAME OVER for you!

The Padre is a delightfully creepy game that you can move through at your own pace, with plenty of treats for horror fans to find amidst the central mystery.

The Padre is a horror-themed adventure that's not frightening, is filled with pop culture jokes that aren't that humorous, has enemies that are annoying to fight with, and, finally, offers an assortment of puzzles that are a mixed bag. It looks good, and, generally, means well... but you should better play Silent Hill instead.

The Padre is actually a good game. Or rather, it would be if there were more direction and a bit more polish. Input lag and a poor framerate mar the experience on Switch, and when your progress in the current room is essentially wiped by a bug for the umpteenth time, you cannot help but want to switch the game off and never return. I really wanted to like The Padre, and at times I honestly did, but sometimes it felt like I was banging my head against a brick wall, something that could easily be avoided if the game offered a little more help in solving its cruel puzzles.
