Morbus Ignotum XIX

Year: 2018

Technology: C# (Unity)

A game which puts the player in the role of a doctor in the 19th century who tries to save as many patients as he can. The game was developed during 48 hours long Warhorse Gamedev Challenge 2018 and won a third place. After some improvements, Morbus Ignotum was presented at Indie Expo during the Game Developers Session 2018 conference.
