Underdose is a 2D narrative survival game with management elements. 

In a not-too-distant, retro-future world shaken by a shortage of medicine, a talented pharmacist is accused of murdering Patient Zero. He flees to the slums, where he tries to survive in isolation until he can recreate the formula for the drug that will save his life.

The action is set in a bleak future, in which the player becomes a pharmacology specialist and uses his extensive knowledge to help those in need. At the same time, he tries to stay alive and get the last substance for the formula of a remedy that will cure him of a deadly disease.

The shortage of medicine leads to clashes and further divides society. People stand in long lines, hoping to get whatever medicine they can. If that fails, they have to find another solution. And this is where you appear.

In the Underdose, players will explore all the elements needed to treat patients in the underground clinic. They will be equipped with retro-future medical technology that will help them to scan the patients’ bodies, diagnose problems, check charts and medical compendiums. It will be important to pay attention to details, listen to patients’ stories just as carefully and manage owned resources wisely.

The finale of the story will depend entirely on the players. They will be faced with difficult choices whether to treat every patient or to save medicine for the main character. Their decisions will affect which path the main character will take and whether we will succeed in saving him.

Key Features:

  • Many different people will knock on your door. You decide who you will accept and treat. Will you recognize all the symptoms and risks? Will you have medicine left at the end of the day? It’s up to you.
  • Discover all the elements needed to treat patients. Pay attention to details and talk to patients just as carefully. Check patients charts to effectively cure them of their ailments. Form alliances with them, but also beware of those who want to take advantage of you. Manage your resources wisely and always think one step ahead.
  • Retro-future medical technology will help you better diagnose patient problems. Use its capabilities to scan patients, analyze data, communicate and uncover secrets. Use it to keep yourself alive.
  • Your decisions matter. You have to deduct and make difficult choices, each of which affects which path the main character will take and whether you will succeed in saving him.

Underdose is coming to PC (Steam) in 2023.
