The Plague Doctor of Wippra is clearly a bleak, gamified examination of a dark period in human history; what makes it bleaker is its illumination on just how little has changed. Despite our modern comforts and conveniences, human behavior under duress seems to remain constant. And in the midst of all these cascading, convoluted moving parts, The Plague Doctor of Wippra asks players to think carefully of their choices, knowing that sometimes, the best of two evils is the best one can do. If you’re seeking a short-lived point-and-click journey through time where the choices really, really matter, The Plague Doctor of Wippra is accepting patients.

The Plague Doctor of Wippra is a wonderful and logical adventure that motivates me to play it a second time hoping for a different ending. A few more possibilities to have your own decisions is the only thing I was missing.

If you like your adventures games to be deep rather than funny, this one is for you.
