Far from any roads, in the distant steppes, lays a forgotten town, where life is slow and things are bleak. Welcome to the world of Pathologic 2 the game about death, misery and no happy endings. As a young doctor, you arrive in your hometown summoned by your troubled father, only to realize that things have taken a turn for the worse. The deadly plague is taking over and there’s no hope in sight. As the disease spreads, entire districts turn into boarded-up quarantine zones and the town slowly slips into chaos. It’s hard enough to survive on your own, let alone help others. You may dive deep into people’s stories, trade with them, and earn their trust… Or loot their homes and harvest bodies for organs and blood. One thing is certain — the choice won’t be easy. Time is also not on your side. It ticks by with a grim persistence, with or without you. Be wise in how you spend it. Miss an important event or a piece of the town’s story and it’s gone forever. You only have 12 days, no more and no less. Remember, that every time you die, the world changes and the game becomes even harder. By paying this harsh price, you may get a glimpse of another truth… Just don’t get too carried away. As a doctor, you will try to save some people: the ones most important to the town’s survival… or the ones most important to you. Quite often though you will be helpless to heal them and even the key characters may die. The plague is merciless and only time will tell who is to make it to the other side. Don’t expect the story to unfold on its own. It is dense. Lots of things are hidden from your eyes. Different plots arise here and there to form a bigger picture. It’s up to you to untangle them on your own to find out the eerie truth. Welcome to this strange world of Pathologic 2, the theater of life and death. The performance is about to start, please — step onto the stage.
