    The Padre pays homage to genre-defining games like Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil (especially the former) but it reveals a bit too much in the safety of worshipping these games. Putting that aside, it's an enjoyable horror adventure overall. If you've ever wondered what a more "modern" version of the classic 1992 Infogrames title would be like, then the Padre might be right up your alley.

    Amazing, the story and the graphics are great. The game has some comic side which make the gameplay more enjoyable.

    One of the best indie games I've ever played. The visuals are atmospheric, let's say it's 3D Pixelart, never seen anything similar to it. TheOne of the best indie games I've ever played. The visuals are atmospheric, let's say it's 3D Pixelart, never seen anything similar to it. The game reminds me the best old-school adventures and survival games from my childhood, like the first Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil. Highly recommended to every gamer! Expand

    Really hard puzzles and awesome references to epic games. Unique atmosphere with a mixture of horror and humor.

    The Padre is an experience that is undoubtedly not for everyone. While the detailed and blocky voxel-based visuals are pleasant to look at, itThe Padre is an experience that is undoubtedly not for everyone. While the detailed and blocky voxel-based visuals are pleasant to look at, it feels like the game has a bit of an identity crisis. Most of the eye-winking charm works while most of the horror and referential elements don’t. The Padre could shape up to be something special if it solidifies its identity as a charming love letter to the games and movies that it’s drawing from; but the hackneyed story, sputtering pace, and lack of any resolution mean that only a select few will really enjoy what The Padre has to offer in its current state.
