The Executioner gets delayed to late September after missing July release

The Executioner isn’t quite ready to see you yet, so you’ll have to wait a couple of months before you can play this dark, medieval RPG.

The last we heard from The Executioner, the game was set to release around mid-July. We braced our necks in terrified anticipation, but the moment has come and gone. Turns out the game needs a little more time, and will be released on 25th September. The release platforms will be the same as before: PC, Mac, and Linux.

There’s also a new launch trailer for the game. Check it out:

Here’s what the game is about, according to the devs’ description:

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.

The game is being developed and published by Lesser Evil Games, which is based in Moscow, Russia. It’s expected to be a multi-part game, and the September release date is for the first part of the series. According to a previous press release, Lesser Evil Games intended to release new parts for The Executioner every two months. It’s unclear whether that plan has changed.
