    rite, i decided to play pathologic like 3 years ago, but upon hearing about this remake, decided to wait for it to finally give the game a try. Did the same thing with Outcast, and boy, was it worth it.

    Now, i knwo almost nothing about the original game, and almost nothing about this, except the fact that its going episodic. What im wondering about it is - should i play Marble nest before the first episode? will it spoil the rest of the game?

    Play it. You won't see marble nest content in the final game, it's like a teaser.

    Prepurchase is up, I also got additional -20% off coupon, which apparently was supposed to be -10, because when I tried it right after prepurchase went online it really was -20, but couple of minutes later it actually cuts price by 10% (in the cart) now. Still better price than I expected, so I'm going to buy it and hope the game will be good and they'll actually finish it.

    $35 and the other two characters "might be" paid DLC?

    Not sure about this.

    1 character is a complete playthrough of the story, the other two play through the same story just a different perspective and events.

    Basically these guys have my money already for having made some of the most unique, intriguing, at times mind-blowing games I've ever played. Pathologic deserves this modern interpretation, if only to be experienced in some way by as many people as possible. I have a bad feeling about Icepick's future unfortunately considering the length of this development cycle (it must have cost A LOT), but I want to support them as much as I can. Despite what we may see in regards to the Bachelor and Changling campaigns, I have no doubt that this - the Haruspex's campaign - will be beautifully presented.

    Gotta admit, I never played Pathologic but do acknowledge its cult status, and I really admire the dedication from fans towards this game based on comments in this thread.

    So I pre-ordered it out of curiosity. The devs need help to make the next two chapters anyway, hope they can make it:greatjob: trailer reminds me of Rusty Lake, eerie, bizarre, somewhat abnormal, love me some magical realism too.

    Yes, I am familiar with Pathologic. Not sure what is the meaning behind this post. I am not against them releasing the game episodically, but when they want people to pay $35 for 1/3 of the game (compared to Classic HD, which is $13) but still might charge for the rest of the game... I'm not a fan of that. I also don't like how they don't have a firm answer other than "they might be paid DLC, we'll see." Doesn't really strike me w/ confidence and seems ultimately damaging to their marketing. Is the Unity engine and a more streamlined UI worth double the price for less content?

    You really expecting good marketing from them? They even had licensed soundtrack being printed on CD two years prior to the game release.

    I also don't know why you think that paid-DLC' will cost 35$ (if they gonna implement them).

    1. Didn't they partner with an indie publisher for marketing reasons?
    2. Where did I state the paid DLC will cost $35? I said the game is $35, which includes only 1 character. The paid DLC would be on top of that.

    I'll definitely grab a copy now that GOG announced the game is coming to the store. Unfortunately they don't take payment in walnuts.

    Uh huh huh. The game is out and the keys are supplied as well right? I'm not getting mine, keep getting "internal server error" when I try to redeem it. Halp!

    Edit: Solved. I had to actually confirm my tier and "place and order"

    Bought this game on Steam. Ready to go home and walk along the banks of the Gorkhon. Will it be out at the normal store update time or will it be based on Russian times?

    Good news for those with "lesser" rigs, a dev on the steam forum has mentioned that a number of major performance issues in the demo have been fixed in the release version.

    Also I think there was some problem with NVIDIA in the demo, I have an AMD card and had no issues. Nice to have it fixed regardless, and even more optimized. IIRC a dev on the Steam forum said the latest demo build is actually two months old.

    Interested to see if this solves the pacing issues the original game apparently has. Almost started a playthrough of it some months ago but learned afterwards that the sequel was actually a remake.

    I'm still baffled by the publisher mandate to call this Pathologic 2. All it does is confuse people.
