Critic Reviews for The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is an extremely polished text adventure that you absolutely must experience. Its characters can invoke a deep curiosity that only tunnelling down that rabbit hole will ever satisfy, and the multiple endings and randomly selected elements help flesh a game in a genre that's usually a "one and done" affair. At only £6.99 or your regional equivalent and having very low hardware requirements, there is little excuse not to dive into the madness.

The characters are interesting, and the psychological threads draw out the plot leaving you just as vulnerable as the patients your interviewing.

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is a reinvention of full motion video for the current generation of games. Its quirky and troubled cast gives some spectacular performances, and the text-based elements make this adventure game an excellent way to get into the genre.

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker puts a ton of work into the acting and presentation of the characters but lacks in the actual gameplay to make it stand out as a video game.

While the central conceit sounds promising as an FMV experience, The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker fails to find a consistent tone or fully engage the player in its story. It offers a couple of nice ideas and the odd smile, but if you don't care about the central mystery, you're left with madness, and the disparate threads never weave together in a satisfying way. The two ominous notes of the soundtrack (only a mild exaggeration) are left to supply tension, and with The Bunker and Late Shift showing how the genre can be relevant and entertaining in 2018, it's hard to recommend this over the alternatives.

Doctor Dekker offers a lot of content, built in a way that allows you to piece an intense mystery together on your own, but with some clunky bits that let the whole game down.

The Infectious Madness of Dr. Dekker is an immersive role-playing experience that manages to overcome its frustrating language limitations with excellent atmosphere, acting, and interactive storytelling.

In conclusion, The Infectiousness Madness of Doctor Dekker is an admirable attempt at a niche horror title, marred only by the U.I. of the particular version I played. I'm already invested in their next game, I'll just make sure I pick that up on the Switch.
