I, The Inquisitor Game Adapts a Dark Fantasy Novel Series Where Jesus Took Revenge

I, The Inquisitor announced for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X | S by The Dust PS5 indie reveal trailer

Polish developer The Dust has announced I, The inquisitor, a dark fantasy adventure game based on Jacek Piekara’s series of novels, for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X | S. The popular book collection takes place in a universe where Jesus did not die on the cross, instead responding with anger and vengeance. I, The Inquisitor picks up 1500 years later, with the player instilling the fear of God as inquisitor and main character Mordimer Madderdin. The I, The inquisitor reveal trailer offers a solid peek at The Dust’s grim adaptation.

I, The Inquisitor is a non-linear, story-driven adventure with “difficult moral choices” and unique abilities. The game takes place in Konigstein, but the all-powerful Mordimer has the ability to travel to the “Unworld,” allowing him to uncover people’s deep secrets and assist in interrogations. Meanwhile, combat revolves around the sword, so expect to use brute force as you learn enemy weak points. Ultimately, Mordimer will learn about a “darker evil from another realm that is trying to enter the world of the living.”

While the official game reveal trailer arrived today, The Dust has been sharing tidbits about I, the Inquisitor and its bleak action adventure since announcing the adaptation back in 2019. It notably released a short, atmospheric teaser one year ago.

I, The Inquisitor is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X | S, but there is no release date yet.
