Welcome to this episode of Cancelled Horror Games. A series where we look at, well, horror games that were cancelled.
In this video, we look at Cleric: a first-person survival horror game in development in the early 2000s for PC by Texas-based studio Plutonium Games. The game was set in the 16th-century Russian port town of Novo-Kholmogory where residents have been attacked by zombies. Further adding to the town’s problems, all of the young girls have disappeared in the surrounding wilderness.
Players would have controlled Reverend Father Aronos Schule, who has been sent to investigate the mystery surrounding why the dead won’t stay dead and the whereabouts of the missing girls.
Join us as we dive into the game’s background and gameplay while looking at the reasoning behind why Cleric never saw the light of day.
