Pathologic Classic HD "Remasters" The Original

Better voice acting and translation.

This is slightly strange. Pathologic is one of our favourite RPGs, but the original release wasn't without its flaws. That's why it's exciting that original developers Ice-Pick Lodge are working on a ground-up remake, which they Kickstarted last year. But there's also now Pathologic Classic HD, a remaster rather than a remake, which polishes the existing game with a new translation, new voice acting and updated graphics. Find the trailer below.

This seems odd to me when there's already a remake on the way, but perhaps that will offer a distinct enough experience that the original still has value on its own. If that's the case, then a polished version - a definitive version, says the press release hopefully - makes sense. Especially one that cleans up the game's worst flaws.

There's no release date as yet, but it'll be available from Steam, GOG and Humble and cost $12.99 / £9.99 / €12.99.
