Return to the asylum with The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker or TIMDD As we will call it now for short, it is a video game with an extraordinary story that is worth following, even if its playability is not the best. The news is that this title whose reviews have been quite good will come to the Linux world. The developers themselves have confirmed that they are currently in the process of porting it to Linux, taking the first steps to make it work in Ubuntu and from there debugging what is necessary to make it work.

Add and follow the gaming world on Linux, and we hope it continues like this with open arms. Well, those who do not know TIMDD, it is one of those video games in which videos with real images are introduced to replace computer-generated graphics. All the work we owe to D'Avekki Studios, an English team that is behind all the fantastic design and graphic work of the game to create this conversational adventure in which we do not have to interact, but it will be the game that interacts by answering our questions with a live video.

The story is based on the recent death of the Dr Dekker, and soon we will realize that there is something strange about his death, and everything points to one of his patients in the psychiatric hospital where he worked. Our only tool will be the dialogue to try to investigate and go pointing out the keys and ideas to be able to decipher the enigma. Don't you think the idea is great? The game will simply let us enter questions and the video will answer according to our questions (although the mechanism does not work completely fine ..).

But everything will not be so simple, as many patients deviate from the topic we are asking or are unable to answer, which further complicates the collection of clues to solve the case. Many do not like this type of game and it confuses or frustrates them, but the truth is that it is a game quite different from what we are normally used to. It is good that the studies create these types of games that go out of the ordinary and open new entertainment fronts, without a doubt it is nutritious for the industry ...
