Ice-Pick Lodge’s Kickstarted remake/rejigging/reimagining/whatever of Pathologic has a batch of lovely new in-game screenshots.
Pathologic is a survival horror adventure in which you, as one of three distinct characters, head to a plague-stricken town in the hopes of finding a cure. You’ve only got 12 days until the plague overtakes the town, though; and with desperate townspeople, bandits, and the need to eat and sleep, the plague itself may not be the biggest threat to your short-term survival.
The original game was lauded for its clever ideas, fascinating setting, and utterly exhausting atmosphere… and was slammed for an occasionally incomprehensible translation, naff combat, slightly knackered mechanics, and a lot of other little issues. The remake aims to fix these things and essentially create what the original game should have been.
You can see the screenshots below.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
