The video is slightly better quality on youtube and buffers faster.
Bishop Stix is a religious themed stealth game for PC. Creep through cathedrals, monasteries, Crusader hospitals and more as you make your pilgrimage through the holy week.
Hide in the god rays to avoid the bishops who are the maniacal creations of the Black Pope himself. Using an assortment of religious weapons and executions ("exorcisms"), dispatch the bishops to progress.
The game is still in development, all video and screenshots are of the alpha version, with quite a bit of placeholder art still in there. In the finished game there will be an arsenal of religious weaponry, including the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, Augustine's crosier, a morningstar censer and Gideon's flail. Guns will include David's sling, the Very Reverend hand Canon, the Venerable Bede's cutlass pistol, and the Choirboy which decimates enemies with a blast of choral music.
There will also be special exorcism moves where the player dispatches opponents using moves such as praying, blessing, or baptism.
There will be many bizarre creatures in the game. All current enemies and levels are work in progress.
You start with melee weapons, but later there is a selection of guns.
Generally it is a better idea to make your kills stealthy and without being seen or heard.
Level selection screen shown above.
The game will have a radar and an indicator showing if you are being hunted seen or not. Expert mode will remove the radar. I'm also working on a slow motion mode.

Risks and challenges
The main challenge I am facing is in the creation of the "exorcisms". These will require more custom models, effects and animations in order to make them look convincing and satisfying.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
