The Procession To Calvary is set in a Renaissance-Era world, with the gameplay being paintings that have been animated in a very Monty Pythonesque way. If you are a fan of Monty Python then The Procession To Calvary is a fun one for you.
Teamed with classical music this sets the scene for a “religious” game that really pushes the boundaries. Butt jokes are a recurring theme throughout the game! So, if that is your kind of sense of humour, you are definitely on to a winner.
The point and click game has multiple endings that you must figure out by completing puzzles and choosing the correct path.

Which I feel was very deserved as it was funny and very well thought out.
I must point out that The Procession To Calvary includes nudity and violence so young eyes should not see this…unless the parents say so. But that is down to the parent’s discretion. However, the nudity that is seen, goes hand in hand with the nudity that you see in paintings of the past like those of Michelangelo and such.
The dialogue is very witty and tongue-in-cheek, which is what you would expect for something that has similarities to Monty Python.
My opinion on The Procession To Calvary is that it has a great story line, very funny, easy to play and chill out to with having a good laugh. The story and game itself could have been longer as I thoroughly enjoyed it and am already on my second playthrough of the game.
I would give The Procession To Calvary 7/10, it could be better but it’s okay, I would recommend it for a short game.
The Procession to Calvary can be found on Steam for £7.99
