Mini Review: The Procession to Calvary (PS4) – Absurd Point and Click Adventure Is Funny and Brilliantly Unique

It’s a point and click adventure in the mould of classics like Monkey Island or Broken Sword, in which you play as a murder-hungry warrior hellbent on finding and, er, murdering a religious tyrant named Heavenly Peter. As you’d expect of the genre, tracking Peter down means having to chat to a colourful cast of characters, while also pocketing all kinds of ridiculous items that may be used to solve strange puzzles.

The visuals are comprised entirely of classical paintings, cropped and edited to make one cohesive, collaged world — and it works to fantastic effect.
