Ice-Pick Lodge, the Russian game developers behind The Void and Knock-Knock, wants to create a remake their first creepy RPG game, Pathologic. Pathologic is known for its weak translation and annoying bugs, but it has an unmatched aesthetic. With a pleasing creepiness similar to Edvard Munch’s painting, The Scream. So regardless of the technical hiccups, fans want to see more. But first Ice-Pick needs to find the money to create a remake. They announced via Russian social networking site VK that they’ll launch a Kickstarter campaign in September.
Pathologic is a game about three people who are trying to uncover the source of a strange lethal disease that has hit their small town. The ability to uncover secrets depends on which character a user chooses to play. The goal of the game is to survive.
