From the makers of 2015’s “cult classic” FMV detective game Contradiction comes “The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker”. I’m really enjoying it but I think it has more to offer than just typical adventure game “use this clue/object on this person” type mechanic seen in it’s predeccesor. It has threads of Her Story with a pinch of Event using a type-to-interrogate system that let’s you speak with patients choose what and how to converse with all the while solving a murder mystery! The characters are all psychiatry patients with endearingly bizarre problems that border on Cthulhu based mythos, time distortion powers, and ghost stories.
The game is a bit budget in places but charmingly written and there is a lot of dialogue. I’d say it has the right amount of cheese and self-awareness. It’s not quite as goofy or fun as Contradiction though. Once you get used to the interrogation system, which can be tricky at times to get the right response, it is surprisingly intelligent. You have to make sure you’re asking who,what,where,when,why, and how questions and not just mirroring words. Also responding yes or no is necessary to further a conversation as long as you specify what you’re agreeing or disagreeing with. Any one else been playing or have thoughts?
