The Executioner supposed to launch 17 July 2019. The developer announced on 19 June 2019 that the game is delayed. The new release date is 31 July 2019. The developers states:
“Due to grisly, unforeseen circumstances, we will be delaying the release of 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.
The Executioner will be a multipart epic adventure into the cruel and unforgiving political sphere of medieval times. Starting with Chapter One, 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:
“We were inspired to create this game by a thought: ‘How people, whose work is inflicting pain and killing other humans, actually live?’ When Milgram published his research, proving that obedience to authority makes people do terrible things to others, and you don’t have to be an evil Nazi for that, people around the world were horrified: ‘Am I also capable of this?’
We believe that our game provides an opportunity to live through a hard, painful and rather dark experience – and in the future to avoid the ethic trap in which the participants of Milgram experiment were caught – made ready, actually, to bring another person to death. We want our players to fully understand the price of a lesser evil.”
