"12 days in a town devoured by plague. It’s an enemy you can’t kill. It’s a game where you can’t save everyone."
Moscovite developers Ice-Pick Lodge just launched their Kickstarter for a remastered version of Pathologic, the bleak, philosophical survival-horror game that first put them on the map back in ‘05. The new version boasts improved graphics, additional content, and a new translation, as well as a welcome winnowing of the original’s more blatant “filler” quests.
What isn’t changing, thankfully, is the game’s distinctly Russian flavor. Much of Pathologic's cult appeal comes from the strength of its setting - a strange, increasingly degenerate frontier town being chewed up by an unknown ague, full of cryptic characters and primal secrets. Surviving meant managing limited time and a raft of basic human requirements - food, rest, health - while fighting to shed even the tiniest light on the town’s many mysteries.
As per usual, the folks at Rock, Paper Shotgun have a great writeup here.
Pathologic was really incredible and deserves to be translated properly and experienced, please give!
GOD THIS LOOKS SICK
if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.
Solar energy that doesn’t block the view
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
and you once said i wish you dead you sinner,
i’ll never be more than a wolf at your door for dinner,
and if i see you ‘round like a ghost in my town, you liar,
i’ll leave with your head oh i’ll leave you for dead, sire.

"Tarun Tahiliani founded his design studio in 1990. His distinctive signature has since evolved as a fusion of textile detail, refined luxury, and meticulous tailoring. The Tarun Tahiliani Design Studio creates couture, diffusion, prêt-a-porte and accessory lines, which are Indian in their sensibility, yet international in their appeal. The rich heritage of the subcontinent is reinvented as contemporary high fashion through the genius of Indian craftsmanship and the finest textiles; along with Italian pattern cutting and construction and new technologies such as digital textile printing. His unique combination of historical opulence and contemporary chic also transcend to couture.” [source]
