The plague spreads agony and fear in the small town of Wippra. As a plague doctor, you bring healing and relief wherever you can. But ignorance, superstition, and religious zeal make for a deadly threat in this retro medieval medical adventure!

Check out the release trailer here.

Check out the game on steam or GoG.

I am playing this now. The art is indeed low res pixel art...makes Hob's Barrow look fully rendered...but it somehow fits the era. The puzzles are well integrated and I'm finding it to be an interesting glimpse into a past time and ancient medical treatments. Have we really come far though? Similarities abound between their view of the Black Plague and our views during our latest pandemic.

Thanks for your info KatieB! I don't mind pixels but I don't like them this big where I can't make any shapes out. I'll still probably get the game one day though. wink

I finished it this morning...it's short (under three hours) but I'm still thinking about it. Interesting game.
