It was back in late May of this year when we were originally expecting the launch of psychological horror game The Works of Mercy by Pentacle, but there was a delay that pushed the game back. The wait is finally over as this choice-based title has officially launched on Steam! Just in time for Halloween, horror fans can be put in some tough situations and will be forced face some decisions that will change everything dramatically.
The Works of Mercy was first in sight when I landed an interview with the developer over a year ago, and has been a game worth waiting for; at least based on the intriguing details and trailers presented.
