DAVID PLAYS... THE PROCESSION TO CALVARY.
27 July 2022

There have been several licensed Monty Python games over the years, but few nail the group's humour like Joe Richardson's The Procession to Calvary, a point-and-click adventure game that runs roughshod over Renaissance art.

The protagonist is a knight who, like Monty Python and the Holy Grail's Sir Launcelot, loves murder. She even agrees to assassinate a deposed religious leader, even if no one asked her to. Players can indulge her bloodlust as much as they like and rush through the game, but Richardson's silly and surreal puzzles deserve better than that.

Those scarred by Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned's infamous cat hair moustache puzzle, rejoice—The Procession to Calvary offers a fair challenge and plenty of laughs along the way. It even gives you an entire Renaissance art gallery to explore sans queues and selfie sticks.
