Pathologic remake hits Kickstarter target


Ice-Pick Lodge's remake (opens in new tab) of their first game Pathologic is going ahead, which is to say that it's vaulted over its Kickstarter (opens in new tab) target, with six days to go. This new version of the bonkers, disease-ridden, fascinating survival-adventure game will arrive in 2016, and the next few days will decide whether it'll feature the additional content (opens in new tab) mentioned in its (fairly restrained) stretch goals.

To celebrate the occasion, Ice-Pick have released a few new images featuring all the weird-masked spider-men, creepy Uncle Festers, and ragged Victorian urchins you could ever want. I've included the most screenshotlike below, along with a teaser trailer we don't seem to have posted before now.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
