[Wandering RPS-associate Quinns went native in a Russian art-videogame called Pathologic and has been exciting us with rants about it ever since. It’s an enthralling game that, when I reviewed it, felt compelled to give a mark in the low fifties (“This will be someone’s favourite game of the year.

It’s a brilliant game that the traditional reviewer has to condemn. This may, to some eyes, show a weakness in traditional reviews and reviewers. But there’s always more than tradition. We’re proud to be publishing Quintin’s dissection over the next three days. Spoilers abound, but – c’mon! – you were never going to play it anyway. I consider this essential. Take it away, Quintin… – KG]
