So, here’s the thing: Dracula, Satan, the Great Old One, and who knows what other iconic pop culture bad guys have joined forces in The Unholy Society, making it their mission to cover the world in neverending darkness, destroy love, and… drink lots of tea? Right. Well, either way, someone has to step up and get rid of these clowns, once and for all. Someone like an exorcist. Too bad the one we’re stuck with for the job has a bit of an amnesia problem, but the Pope himself requested that it be this guy. For some reason.
Then again, in a world inspired heavily by 80s and 90s action movies, it’s a miracle we didn’t end up with someone far worse off. Besides, as the old saying goes – don’t judge a book by its cover. Even if the book doesn’t exactly inspire confidence, leaving behind a trail of cigarette butts and empty whiskey bottles. Nasty stuff, but eh, whatever a would-be video game hero has to do to get by, right? According to the developer, he is, however, armed merely with a dusty Bible, a revolver, and a wooden stake. Not sure that’ll get the job done. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Lying on a bed in a dingy hotel, the exorcist was unaware that his one night stand beauty would become a threat… Just after midnight she revealed her demonic face and perfectly sharp claws. As it turned out later, this case wasn’t the last.
But who knows – maybe we’re dealing with a genuine miracle-maker in disguise. Heck, maybe the unique gesture-based exorcism combat is in fact the perfect fit for our out-of-retirement memories-long-gone protagonist? Maybe. If nothing else, he’ll look super flashy while trying to save the world from those pesky monsters, cassock and all, in The Unholy Society. Even if he fails, there’s still that.
