The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker

Description official description

Dr. Dekker, a psychiatrist, has been stabbed to death, and his killer is still on the loose. Stepping in shoes of a new psychiatrist, taking over the office and patients of Dr. Dekker, the player continues to try and help the patients deal with anxiety all the while searching for answers about what happened to Dr. Dekker and possible find the murderer seeing how all of his patients are also suspects.

But more you talk to your patients, more you start to question your sanity and line between reality and fiction grows thin. The game progresses through days, but in order to be able to go to next day, the player needs to talk to his patients and deplete key conversations while trying to manually type in questions to find out more additional info is optional, but may provide clues. There are five key patients that are also primary suspects, while a few other irregular patients also come for therapy.

Nathan, who is convinced that he is reliving the same day over and over again. Marianna, who is convinced she is luring people to their deaths by making them follow her and end up being sacrificed to a sea god. Claire, who murdered her husband in a jealous rage, then reanimated him using necromancy. Elin, an angel of death who believes she can shapeshift into loved ones of the people who are dying. Bryce, a gravedigger who can supposedly use an extra hour when time stands still for everyone else. And Jaya, Dr. Dekker's secretary, who is into psychokinesis and who headhunted both Dekker and the player for the job. Suspects are a bunch and each comes with very believable, yet crazy story.

At the beginning of each day there are several patients the player can interact with and ask questions. Some questions are preset, while others can be manually typed in to be asked. Text-parser often react to certain keyword while in other cases the sentence will have to be properly assembled in order to trigger the right answer. From time to time, player will also receive items from people which can be checked to more information. In the end, based on all the gathered info, the player gets to accuse the murderer. While the story works similar to Her Story, it is much more believable because you are not looking at recordings but characters talk to the player directly. The story borders between supernatural and horror.
