The Procession to Calvary is very rude, very silly, and a whole lot of fun if taken as it is intended. Much like the Monty Python sketches that have influenced it, it walks the thin line between humour and heresy, but as long you don't mind a bit of irreverent blasphemy mixed in with your silliness, there is a great evening of fun to be had within. You don't even need to have spent 10 years getting a PhD to enjoy it…

The Procession To Calvary is better than Monty Python, because it’s probably more consistent and, perhaps surprisingly for the content, less surreal. But your mileage, as they say, may vary.

If you played the first game, The Procession to Calvary will feel very familiar. In fact, it is so similar in look and gameplay that it felt to me like a seamless continuation.

The Procession to Calvary is a blasphemous, cinical and rad point&click adventure set inside a collage of Renaissance paintings. Brilliant dialogues and gorgeous animations are the perfect frame for Joe Richardson's dark humor and his funny homages to the Monty Python.

With Four Last Things, Joe Richardson had fortunately not said his last word. For the one that best describes his works, collage in this case, also applies to his spiritual successor - in every sense of the word - The Procession of Calvary.

Although sometimes frustrating and obtuse, The Procession to Calvary is a surreal and uniquely funny game well worth the pocket change you'll spend on it.

Suited for those with a sense of humor who enjoy the idea of poking fun at just about anyone on a pedestal.

In fact, we have full-length Monty Python`s sketch — in an interactive way and in modern style.

The surreal atmosphere of renaissance art, finds its unlikely partner in the unconventional comedy style of the Monty Pythons, and the result is… different. Gameplay-wise, this doesn't reinvent the wheel. Far from it. While very well-made and enjoyable, this is just another point-and-click adventure game - but it doesn't matter, because it's not the gameplay the thing about which you should definitely give The Procession of Calvary a go.

The Procession to Calvary is a rather short Phytonesque point and click adventure built from renaissance paintings that will make you laugh.

If you have played Four Last Things, The Procession to Calvary is mandatory. But even if you have not played Richardson's previous game, this one is worth every minute of the roughly four hours you will need to finish it. It does not care if it offends, as long as it entertains.

The humor is probably the best writing I've experienced all year, but in true European fashion, it's dark, dry, and very self-referential at times. While it does have a few shortcomings, including the way in which the game has been translated to Switch and its slow movement speed, The Procession to Calvary was a delight the entire time I played it. If you are a fan of point-and-click games or just want a short and funny experience, I'd recommend this game over any Renaissance art gallery.

An fun combination of odd humor and classic paintings.

Anyone who is a fan of Monty Python, or sarcastic British humor in general, needs to play it. This game had me cracking up all the way through. It’s a breath of fresh air in an otherwise quagmire of mediocrity that is the current point-and-click scene.

The Procession to Calvary it's the equivalent of playing an episode of Black Adder, but with the acidity of Black Books and the surrealism of Garth Mareghi’s Darkplace. In short, it is recommended for all fans in a good mood.

The Procession to Calvary is a point-and-click adventure title that is rude, crude, and lewd. It focuses on providing a comedic story, yet it stands out from other similar titles by taking inspiration from Renaissance artwork. Is Renaissance the new pixel-art? Find out in this Rapid Review.
