Journey through a world of Renaissance artwork, classical music, and irreverent humour
Indie publisher Digerati is overjoyed to announce it’s bringing The Procession To Calvary to PlayStation 4. An exact release date is still to be scheduled, but the game will be available to download from the PlayStation Store sometime in Q4 2020/Q1 2021.
Created by UK-based solo developer Joe Richardson, The Procession To Calvary is an adventure game that evokes the surreal humour of Monty Python, and is crafted entirely from hundreds of Renaissance paintings, with works from renowned masters such as Rembrandt, Bosch, and Michelangelo painstakingly cut and pasted into a madcap montage of invigorating imagery.
“Making The Procession to Calvary was like taking a stroll through the Louvre,” Richardson recalls fondly. “Except I was trapped in there for 2 years while my life savings slowly dwindled to a pittance and I had to painstakingly draw lines around every tree in every painting before I was allowed to clamber from the depths, a husk of the man I once was.”
In The Procession To Calvary, players embark on a quest as an unnamed heroine to hunt down the tyrant Heavenly Peter. A bizarre cast of characters, perplexing puzzles, and implausible scenarios ensures the journey is a thoroughly absurd escapade.
