“With The Church in the Darkness, we wanted to make a game you could replay both for gameplay but also for story, so we use procedural generation to change up the story every time you play. The game’s cult leaders may have good intentions or may be all the way apocalyptic, it’s up to you to figure it out. This leads to multiple endings depending on the players gameplay choices and narrative choices.” – Richard Rouse III, Paranoid Productions Creative Director.
At launch, people investigating the cult will receive a 20% discount for one week to help find the truth behind the Collective Justice Mission. The discount is available for both the Standard and True Believer Special Editions; the former gets you a copy of The Church in the Darkness, while True Believers will receive the game, the Official Soundtrack and a set of special behind-the-scenes videos about the making of the game. The Standard Edition retails for $19.95 USD and the True Believer Special Edition retails for $29.95 USD. The True Believer Special Edition is only available for PC and can be purchased via Steam, Humble, GOG, and Itch.
