TinyBuild has published a series of videos walking you through the first five hours of Pathologic 2. Daniel from developer Ice-Pick Lodge narrates the gameplay as he begins in a train station and makes his way through to his town, getting into fights, scavenging for supplies, talking to others, trading items, exploring, and completing quests. This alpha version was made available to Kickstarter backers at the end of August.
Pathologic 2 is a narrative focused survival game set in a world experiencing a deadly plague and was Kickstarted in 2014. As with all survival games, you must manage your health, immunity, exhaustion, hunger, and thirst while picking up miscellaneous items to trade and sell and try to survive. As the chief medic you can attempt to save people from the plague alongside avenging the death of your father and find your twin sister. A playable demo was avilable at PAX West and publisher tinyBuild only recently announced their partnership to publish the Kickstarted project.
Pathologic 2‘s alpha is available now through their website. This is a remake of Ice-Pick Lodge’s very first game, Pathologic and its title was changed to avoid confusion. The original released in Europe only in 2005/2006 and made its way West with a HD release in 2015. Pathologic 2 is currently aiming for a release sometime this year for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can watch the first of five videos below.
