Confession is a game where you play as the equivalent of a priest in a new religion. The story follows the player over their first 10 days, helping to establish their presence in the community. Community members will come to the church with their problems on an individual level – complex social problems such as adultery and abortion – and the player will have to help guide these citizens. The way the player responds affects how the religion will be built.

Additionally, choices made on one day may affect scenes in future days. Certain paths may only be become available depending on earlier guidance the player gives to their flock.

This game was made to explore the path of having a religious figure be a driving force or leader of a community on an individual social level, and how their choices might impact their church and the people that make up their society.
