Quote
Experience a working day as plague doctor Oswald Keller in medieval Germany. Make diagnoses and help your patients with medical prescriptions or surgery. Stand up against misbeliefs and deal with the ignorance of the people. It is not without danger, but it is the only way to find out the cause of the "Black Death". The Plague Doctor of Wippra is a short point-and-click adventure filled with medical puzzles, interisting characters, historical knowledge and a gripping story. Hand-drawn in beautiful pixel art, expect about 1,5 hours of narrative gameplay in a historical yet contemporary setting.

History
Alexander started to work on the game during the 105#AdventureGameChallenge game jam. The theme was An Escape and Alexander decided to create an adventure about a young doctor escaping from an ignorant priest in the midst of the plague. After two weeks he submitted the game and released it as "Pest-Doctor of Wippra" on itch.io. The game jam version was pretty static - time was running out and so he skipped walking in scenes - but nonetheless he received very good reviews and the players liked the mood, storytelling and graphics. So Alexander decided to develop it into a full game. He is proud of the game jam version because for what it was it turned out great but he wouldn't recommend playing it anymore because it spoils the ending of the full game.

Features
A moody medieval setting with believable characters
Thick atmosphere and great storytelling
Gorgeous, painterly low-res pixelart
Dialogues which matters
The feeling of a retro adventure with streamlined controls
Contains no bad jokes


Happy Gaming!
