Preorders for the upcoming psychological horror-adventure Pathologic 2 are presently live on Steam, with a 10% discount on the standard price and another 10% over that for owners of Pathologic Classic HD. Which is good news, but not so much for what reason we’re here? No, we’re here in the light of the fact that publisher Tinybuild has additionally released a “Theater of Gorkhon” story trailer and I truly figure you should see it.
We like to have a ton of fun with Pathologic when we talk about it since it’s such a silly mess and by all rights, no one should go close to it— but then, we do. Phil said it “wasn’t great in any of the manners you would traditionally relate the word” yet remarkable regardless, while Joe portrayed it as “deeply imperfect,” slow, lacking direction, altogether incomprehensible in spots, however, then include that “by any way or another none of this made a difference since when it worked, boy did it work well.”
This new trailer truly serves to highlight the reality of all that. Pathologic is odd as hell and no one knows what’s happening, but on the other hand, it’s also interesting and kind of cool looking, and you must be at any rate at least a little curious, isn’t that so? And I do wish I could assist you with that, yet all I’ve truly got are the wide strikes breakdown of the plot: A secretive plague strikes a little, remote town in the Steppe, and you’ll play as one of three people sent to find the source and think of a cure. You’ve got 12 days to take care of the job while dealing with other not-really-friendly characters including an Inquisitor sent to evaluate the genuine nature of the catastrophe, and the Commander, entrusted with containing the circumstances one way or the other.
A portion of that may have changed for Pathologic 2, nonetheless—it started as a revamp of the original, however, then the original got a real remake so developer Ice-Pick Lodge chose to “reconstruct” it rather, which prompted the new name. Since nothing about Pathologic can be straightforward and easy to parse, I guess. A demo for Pathologic 2 stays accessible from Tinybuild.
