The cadaver synod
« on: 29 Jun 2016, 17:57 »
The year is 897. Pope Stephen the sixth or seventh, is holding a trial against his predecessor Formosus,
and you have been chosen as Formosus defender. The thing is, you hardly know a thing about law.

That's probably why Stephen chose you.

This game was made for MAGS in June 2016 with the theme "Neglected Historical Eras".
The story is loosely based on an historical trial known as The cadaver synod, as well as borrowing elements from a certain medieval legend.

Nice little history lesson, with a piece of myth thrown in.

I just finished playing and what a treat!

Hilarious in every way, as well as quite scarily showing off the unlimited depths of human stupidity...

I learned a new word from it too:

Spoiler: ShowHide
Labbergabber!!!
