    Isn't that a biggie? The Haruspex already knows everyone in town, whereas the Bachelor doesn't. So the order is wrong if you play Haruspex first and the Bachelor afterwards. At least if you play Pathologic for the first time.

    I played the original and the demo in original language and it's pretty much the same there.

    Oh great, the top steam review is by some entitled dipshit with 0.5 hours playtime who claims the game is a beta and incomplete because it does not include the other two characters.

    Looks like we're never even going to get those two other characters now.

    Particularly absurd considering the atmosphere in the first 10 minutes of the game is balls to the wall amazing. Don't want to spoil it, but that shit sent shivers down my spine.

    Glad to see the game is holding strong with a solid Very Positive average on steam, but I wish there were more reviews and concurrent players, though it's actually getting more play than I anticipated, so that's good. Hopefully it's enough to keep these guys going.

    PSA - Acts in "thoughts" menu aren't Days.
    Don't be alarmed after not receiving a message "i've done everything i could, time to rest", your Act II thoughts tree will be continued in Day 3.

    After playing a bit of the first day it basically feels like the same game, even graphically i remember the first pathologic looking similar, i know it looks worse, but in my memories looks like that, if it makes any sense. The plot is the same,the city etc. I know its a remake, but im not sure whats the point of it. Mechanically its not streamlined at all for the new players, the same monotonous running from one place to another with rapidly filling survival meters. Why they decided to make the same game twice instead of creating something new?

    Does the plot differ significantly or what? I beat the first game, so im not sure i want to continue here

    You seem overly concerned with the game getting very positive reviews. I cannot comment on the remake but the old Codex adage "chances are something you really like pretty much sucks" comes to mind.

    I find playtime and enjoyment very much related. Tbh these days I usually don't even read reviews especially the overly long ones, which usually only repeat things I already know. I just look if there are reviews with 100 hours and more (and especially 300h etc) which tells me that the game is replayable and not some storyfag linear nonsense. Sometimes I read such a review too especially to see wether the person has regrets (like the many Elite Dangerous reviews which are all variants of "how I fucking wasted my time" and thereby highly amusing)

    inventory and barter are improved, some systems like healing people or repairing equipment are more complex than in original, there are much more sidequests and stuff to do.
    Plot is maybe the same, but the writing is brand new and some characters are very different.

    I'm concerned about the continued existence of Ice-Pick Lodge as a developer, and steam reviews are relevant to that. I don't really give a fuck beyond that. I've already decided the game is excellent according to my own preferences and I don't much care what others think beyond it effecting sales.

    Never played the first one, but I'm digging the small bit of P2 I've thus far played. Atmospheric, excellent map design, foreboding sense of mystery, top-notch sound. Headphones are a must.

    I see. They should have done something with traversing, its the most annoying part of the game. Mantling in fp games is a must, not being able to vault chest high fences and needing to run around entire buildings is a shitty game design that should have stayed in 2005. The snails pace and laughable stamina doesnt help either

    I know, but still. Its like they wanted to create this modern slick version of pathologic but its actually not modern at all, its the same junky game with Unity engine that somehow feels even junkier than it did in 2005

    Pathologic is now a part of Dark Souls franchise:

    1) there is a lore
    2) you can die
    3) there is a stamina bar
    4) this piece of software was made by people from somewhere

    how abysmal must the sales be if they are already kowtowing to casuals? hopefully they can add in options that make the game more difficult as well, such as removing obj. markers entirely/having more districts be infected at once, etc.

    A bit less than 10 go.

    I am day 2. So far so good. Everything is at least as great as in the first game (one of my all time favorite).
