Let us introduce a new game know as “The Pope: Power & Sin,” a new simulation from Forestlight Games and PlayWay, the latter of which specializes in publishing anything simulation from Uboat simulators to various mechanic simulators and even a game known as “I am Jesus Christ.” Yeah, seriously, that game does really exist. And, now that The Pope: Power and Sin has been announced, you’ll soon be able to play as Pope Alexander VI, also known as Rodrigo de Borja – one of the, if not the, most controversial pope in the history of the Catholic church.
Instead of trying to describe it to you, we’ll let the developers do that themselves. Here’s how the game is described on the current Steam page:
“The Pope: Power & Sin is a game inspired by the life of Rodrigo de Borja, who served as the pope in 1492-1503, as Alexander VI. Take on the role of the Pope, strengthen the authority of the Church State, fight for spiritual and political independence from pagans and the renewal of administrative church structures. The rule of Alexander VI is a torrent of numerous scandals, excesses and signs of moral corruption in the highest authorities of the Church.”
Another part of the description reads:
- Difficult times require quick, often violent decisions. Eliminate heretics who undermine your holiness.”
- Unite Italy, expand territory of your power, collect taxes and obtain riches.
- Politics don’t always have to be clean; you don’t have to get along with everyone. Remember that you have God on your side, so any decision can be right.
- Collect information. Any place is good, Vatican corridors or even a confessional. Many want the power, they want to be in your place.
- Manage subordinates and, above all, take care of the family. Give them high positions and secure their future.
- There is unlimited power in your hands, you are God’s representative on Earth.
There’s no specific launch date for The Pope: Power & Sin, but it’s expected to launch on Steam sometime later on in 2020.
