The Executioner Dark RPG

by Thelget

Lesser Evil Games announced its dark RPG The Executioner, which thrusts players into the shoes of a torturer, releases today via Steam, Wednesday, September 25th. Purchasers may enjoy a launch discount of 15% until October 2nd.

The Executioner

The Executioner is a multi-part epic adventure into the cruel and unforgiving political sphere of medieval times, starting with the base game, releasing on September 25th.

Partially inspired by the famous Milgram experiment – a study on obedience in psychology, this brutal tale will follow the newly appointed Royal Executioner on a journey to retain his sanity in the darkest of times.

“We were inspired to create this game by a question: ‘How do people, whose work is inflicting pain and killing other humans, actually live?’
We believe that our game provides an opportunity to live through a hard, painful and rather dark experience – and experience the ethical trap in which the participants of the Milgram experiment were caught. We want our players to fully understand the price of a lesser evil.”

Lead Writer, Elena Sivakova

Through A Torturer’s Eyes

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.

  • A dark economy – a market in dead flesh, with you as the main supplier.
