Description
“The Works of Mercy” is a psychological thriller inspired by the classics of the genre: Roman Polanski’s “Repulsion,” “The Tenant” and Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining.” The game’s plot revolves around mysterious killings committed on seemingly random victims. Only this time it’s the player who becomes the murderer.


“The Works of Mercy” tells a story of a personal tragedy and wrecked psyche. When a cryptic tormentor forces the protagonist to kill people in order to save his family, the game’s hero (and the player) is posed with a series of dramatic questions. Who is the tormentor? Why is he so vengeful toward the protagonist’s family? How far do you have to go to satisfy him? How can you justify the killing in the sake of saving someone’s life? And how will you cope with the sense of guilt?

“The Works of Mercy” takes place in a photorealistic world as immersive as the real one. It lets the player get the very feel of roaming through murky locations and delve into the hero’s mind which is put to a serious trial. The game enables you to explore a fully interactive environment featuring the best elements of such games as “Gone Home” or “P.T.”

“The Works of Mercy” will leave the gamers with a lasting impression and face them with the question: how much could I sacrifice for my family? It will take the players through a dark world which gradually dissolves to an increasingly surreal vision of the protagonist’s mind captured in a lethal trap.

“The Works of Mercy” will be made available in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Polish, Russian and Portuguese.The current plan is to complete the PC version of the game. The team will then move over to the Mac / Linux ports and console adaptations.
We also plan to support all major VR headsets.

Thanks for considering it! It can add more emotion to it. I'm sure you can put a check-mark in the settings of whether to have it on or off as a good compromise :)

@vizual Yes, I agree. I like it better like it is but some people asking for that voice. Maybe we will make it optional to satisfy all.

I don't think a voice is needed, the game could be more personal without it, so you read the lines in your head in your voice,

@Jon We are thinking about it. It would be a good option but we are still indie and it cost money. We will see.
