The intense and bleak survival game starts its journey down a different road.
The general census is that Pathologic 2 is one of the most intense survival type of game available on the PC. It’s often described as a grueling mystery of a game that smothers with big ideas and survival mechanics. Almost all agree that there is a sense and feeling of powerlessness and doom at every turn.
Pathologic 2 is now embarking on its’ next chapter titled The Bachelor. There isn’t a solid release date for it, but it is in the writing stage and Ice-Pick is looking to make things different this time around.
“The first chapter showed us all the pros and cons of our game design. We’d want to take into account all the mistakes we made and raise the bar higher. But this takes some time. We’re looking for a way to make the Bachelor’s gameplay quite different from the one you’ve experienced during the Haruspex. And we want to achieve this goal using the instruments we already have.”Ice-pick lodge
It seems like the studio got a bit disheartened by the polarized opinions to their base game. In fact, the difficulty sliders seemed like a feature they really didn’t want to add but had to in order to appease the player base. Whatever is going on, it’s good to know that Pathologic is pushing forward and continuing to develop.
The studio is also working on some other projects, most of which are mobile apps with the exception of Know By Heart, which is a childhood themed one where they reunite in a Russian province. Here’s a glance at some key art below:
