Interview: Ice Pick Lodge On Pathologic HD And Preserving Madness

Last night Ice-Pick Lodge revealed a new collection of screenshots for their HD remake of the wonderful, bizarre and previously very broken Pathologic [official site]. Looking at them, I found I was bursting with questions, so I asked them. Ice-Pick's Alexandra Golubeva replied, in splendid detail. Below you can find out how there came to be two remakes at once - a complete rebuild and…

Surprise Remaster Pathologic Classic HD Dated

Just a quick one to start your day: in case you've been wondering when the surprise release of the partially remastered 'Classic HD' version of notorious first-person survival game Pathologic [official site] will be, I can now answer that for you. This is not, just to clear up understandable confusion, the recently Kickstarted remake of Ice Pick Lodge's wildly ambitious but somewhat rickety psychological oddyssey,…

Pathologic Classic HD “Remasters” The Original

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…

Butchering Pathologic – Part 1: The Body

Every Sunday, we reach deep into Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history to pull out one of the best moments from the archive. This week, since the Kickstarter for the remake ends in two days, part one of Quinns celebration and dismantling of Pathologic. This post was originally published on April 10, 2008. Okay. ...okay. I'm going to explain, right now, why a Russian FPS/RPG called…

The Plague Spreads: Pathologic Remake Hits Funding Goal

Adam has left his post, fleeing into the hills above Manchester to wail and leap around, emitting guttural noises which sound like pain but are actually carnal joy. And all because the Pathologic re-make has reached its Kickstarter target. People who have visited Ice-Pick Lodge's original dark Russian adventure tend not to come back from its plague-infested town the same as when they entered, and…

Secrets Of The Ice-Pick Lodge: Pathologic Reimagined

I've been waiting for a Pathologic remake for years. My reaction to the announcement of a Kickstarter campaign to fund a remake was odd. I worried, I fretted. My concern was that a re-engineered version of the game would remove rough edges, sandpaper the strange angles and anomalies, and somehow expose the whole experience as more sterile, and less esoteric and unusual than the broken…

Pathologic Remake Stuff Is Coming Soon! Eek! EEK!

This isn't the informationiest of news stories, I'll concede, but see, when it's Pathologic, it gets a pass. It's Pathologic news. As Alec reported back in November of last year, Ice-Pick Lodge are planning to remake the 2006 lunatic masterpiece. We've just heard today that this will be kicking off in August, beginning with a mysterious, yet-to-be-released ARG, building up to the inevitable Kickstarter campaign…

Most Logical: Kickstarted Pathologic Remake On The Cards

This makes almost too much sense. Yet I almost don't want it to happen. Mysterious, infamous survival game Pathologic's power stems more from its legend (a game of existential brutality that reached for the very stars) than its reality (broken, arduous, appallingly translated); to bring it onto a more conventional plane of reality by remaking it, and in turn by having lots of people play…

Strangers In The Night: Knock-Knock Released

Waiting for a new Ice Pick Lodge release is a lot like waiting for Christmas, except instead of presents under a tree and a day of jollity with family and friends, Icepick reward their devotees' patience by dragging them into strange and terrifying new worlds. Thanks, Mr Lodge, it's just what I wanted! Knock-Knock is a Kickstarted curiosity, with a crowdfunding campaign that became a…

Feature: Parallax Horrors

Impressions: Knock, Knock

There are plenty of game developers whose work is predicated on strangeness, but it is perhaps Ice Pick Lodge who have most successfully defined themselves by making weird games and making games weird. That's not to say all (or even any) of their games are particularly successful, just that Pathologic*, The Void and Cargo are each singular and deeply peculiar experiences. The same is true…

Guests And Goblins: Knock Knock

A: Knock Knock. B: Who's there? A: Hello! It's Icepick Lodge here. We're just scratching and clawing at the door in the manner that a deranged and hungry ghost might if it found itself outside an isolated house in the middle of some shadow-splintered woods. You may know us as the developers of Pathologic and other games. Following a successful Kickstarter, we've been working on…

Knock-Knock. ‘Who’s There?’ Ice-Pick Lodge. ‘Uh-Oh.’

Ice-Pick Lodge tend to pop up when you least expect them, with the game you least expect them to make. They've been sensibly resistant to attempting another Pathologic, instead darting off to create new specimens of the weird, the wonderful and the intimidatingly odd. The enormous success they so richly deserve has eluded them, which means a move to Kickstarter is probably sensible. True to…

Cargo! The Quest For A Demo

Fancy a taste of Ice Pick Lodge's surreal puzzle adventure thing, Cargo!? I know that you do, and you are in lucky on this fine morning because an 800mb demo has materialised both on the main site, and at some other mirrors. Cargo! is quite the game, as Quintin explained in his recent article: "Cargo is really a game about surprises. The surreal setting is…
