Pathologic: The Marble Nest

Pathologic teaser game, The Marble Nest showcasing the game and its warped, ethereal world. Available free on Steam. The Marble Nest, a separate game set parallel to the main story.


In an old settlement on the steppe, attempt to survive, investigate and cure a mysterious disease. Absorb yourself in a cast of fascinating characters. Care for the sick while solving the riddle of what’s killing them. But in the decaying world of Pathologic, staying alive for long enough might be the biggest challenge of all…

In this genre-defying nightmare from Ice-Pick Lodge, you’ll spend 12 days in a town that’s being crippled by an unfathomable disease – one that defies all medical logic and confounds those who try to resolve it. As a healer sent to find a cure, you’ll also need to navigate the town’s unusual culture and traditions, deal with its ruthless economy, and negotiate with the conflicting families that govern this isolated population.

Will you give to the needy or hoard resources for yourself? Will you take one life to save a thousand? Who can you trust? How can you stop the strange plague’s merciless spread across this once quiet settlement?

Pathologic mixes roleplaying, adventure and survival mechanics to tell its dark and dreamlike story. You have twelve days. The people of the town are depending on you.
