Fans of Russian developer Ice-Pick Lodge’s Pathologic rejoice! The devs dropped an Alpha teaser for their new game )(and sequel to the original), Pathologic 2! That’s not all, as Ice-Pick Lodge will be on hand at this year’s PAX West (from August 31st to September 3rd) to show off the game. You can also sign up to actually test the Alpha build of Pathologic 2 by heading to the official site. You can also find out more info on the game by visiting its Steam page.
The story for Pathologic 2 is set in a town that’s being consumed by a deadly plague. In a hopeless situation such as this, players must find the necessities to survive, such as food and water, but also tools. You’ll have to barter, steal, or scavenge these supplies. That’s not all. At the same time, you’ll have to figure out who killed your father, but also find your alleged twin sister, who may have been the one who brought the plague in the first place. Did I mention that you have to do this all (or some of it) in 12 days?
