Pathologic Remake Pushed Out to the Second Half of 2017

The remake of Pathologic is now listed on Steam, so you can have a look at some screens and a description of the game, to get a better idea about the game. But we will need to wait longer than the November 2016 listed release date on the Kickstarter to play the game.

“The original plans for the release date were set with the basic scope of the game in mind. It seems a bit immodest to admit, but we did include our first stretch goal, the Town Expanded, into that; but not the rest of them. The game has grown in scope now, so developing it properly requires additional time,” developer Ice-Pick Lodge explained in a Kickstarter update. “Also, the vision for this version of Pathologic has shifted during the development. What started as a humble rejuvenation of a classic beloved by the studio turned into a full-fledged reimagining rather quickly, but it took us time to realize what that truly entails. The corners that we were planning to cut turned into diamond quickly. However faithful to the original vision, this Pathologic is a new game in many aspects, from the engine to the concept art.” 

The dev crew at Ice-Pick Lodge admitted that it’s bitten off more than it was prepared to chew with this remake and said it’s prepared to take whatever abuse supporters may want to throw at it, but insisted that it’s up to the challenge of getting it right. “Pathologic is the thing for most people in the studio. It is the game that gave Ice-Pick Lodge its identity; it’s like both a beloved parent and a firstborn to us,” it wrote. “Look at it this way: we can either mar our conscience by missing the deadline in a rather spectacular fashion, or by releasing a game that falls short on its promises. But only one of these outcomes leaves everybody with a good game in their library in the end.
