Hello, I’m Mikopol. Today let’s talk a bit about some video game.
I’m quite interested in video games industry, even I don’t spend much free time playing games. Still I appreciate that kind of entertainment because of aspects of story, environment, gameplay etc. Over the years games became not only technologically advanced, but also they reached new level in storytelling, artistic visions, atmosphere or gameplay.
During exploring gallery of fellow artist incidentally I’ve got to know old Russian game called “Pathologic”.
“Pathologic” is a adventure game with some arcade elements. It tells a story of small town which population is decimated by some unknown lethal disease. A plot is expressed from point of view one of 3 playable characters, who try findorigin of plague and solve the riddle of many mysterious supernatural phenomenons.
As far I know from net “Pathologic” was forgotten in West because of such problems as poor graphics and translation. But it became a cult title thanks to the grim screenplay, soundtrack, atmosphere of death, decay and mystery and very expanded dialogues, full of philosophical tropes.
After all it looks that “Pathologic” is a very interesting game worth of knowing.
If You played let me know about Your experiences with it.
If You a adventure game fan maybe it’s worth of checking.
