If it avoids falling into the derivative abyss

In fact I thought it was dead, like so many other independent studio games lately.
Apparently it is alive and well and the details we have of a medieval sword wielding Dominican Inquisitor battling in the 13th Century against the rising evil of heretics, possessed, witches, Templars, assassins, animals, demons (sigh) and zombies (double sigh) in a ‘historical fiction’ first person perspective hack ‘n slash have me both interested but also confused.
Game Style: Confusion #1
What I’ve seen of the game so far looks a bit like Oblivion and Dark Messiah but the game will have more timing based hack n’ slash qualities of the action-oriented titles, complete with third person view finishing moves.
