What is SANCTUARY?

SANCTUARY is a horror game where you assume the role of a character who has fallen on hard times. A pastor is willing to let you stay at his church building until you get back on your feet. But you will quickly find that this place is rife with demons, and that the only way to get rid of them is by reciting the “Word of God” in a correct and timely manner. Featuring many unique boss fights, endings, and jumpscares!

Do I need to understand the Bible or be religious to play this?

No. The player needs only their wits and common sense to correctly select which word fills in the blanks on various verses. As the game progresses on, you will have more blank spaces to fill and less time to do so.

How much does this game cost?

It's free! No strings attached!

What is SANCTUARY inspired by?

Point-and-click adventures from the early 90’s.
Earthbound (SNES)
WarioWare Mega Microgame$ (GBA)
Five Nights At Freddy’s (PC)
The Authorized King James Bible

Why the AKJV?

It is public domain and therefore free to use, among other reasons.

What are the minimum/recommended system requirements?
