Pathologic is a unique example of a dramatic game, which directly affects the players state of mind.
In the depths of the Ancient Steppe appeared a weird town. Once a small drover settlement scattered around the monstrous Abattoir, it unexpectedly developed into a mysterious, isolated establishment with an odd social structure. This odd society has managed to survive for several generations. It could have continued to aspire, were it not for a sudden outbreak of some enigmatic, lethal and inescapable disease, which begins to mercilessly slaughter the denizens inhabiting the area. Even science has proven helpless in finding a cure, or at least providing some explanation.
Three outsiders arrive in the contaminated town. The first was a highly-educated Bachelor with a ruthless manner of investigation, assigned by the provincial authorities. The second one is a far-sighted Ripper with a reputation of an ingenious surgeon, in search of his father's terrible heritage. The last character is an eccentric girl, possessing mystic healing abilities, that could become the towns heavenly salvation were it not for the constant fear in her dejected eyes and fresh memory of the horrors of her recent past
Each of them must survive in this hell and play a vital role in the fate of the doomed town
One of them could be you. The show is about to begin.
The atmosphere of the game reproduces the tense feeling of constant danger, maddening awareness of the enemys invincibility. Youll witness dreadful images of city agony, incessant death of the infected world and dramatic tragedies of the doomed people
