Grey Plague is a beautifully drawn narrative adventure that’s interspersed with virus hunting arcade sections in which you use your power to see into people’s internal organs to help combat the outbreak of a deadly disease.
Grey Plague is another thought provoking and beautifully drawn adventure from Zephyo, creator of HE BEAT HER and I Woke Up Next To You Again. It’s set in the near future and sees you following Red, a young woman who has the ability to see into people’s infected organs and guide white blood cells to destroy diseases. This may come especially in handy as there’s just been an outbreak of a particularly nasty mutation of Tuberculosis, named the ‘Grey Plague’, that’s destroying the internal organs of the infected.
Grey Plague takes around 1 to 2 hours to complete and features multiple endings. It takes some interesting twists along the way and also features a surprising amount of medical information about disease spread, symptoms, illness and treatment. It does a good job of relaying a narrative, along with teaching the player a little biology and giving a glimpse of how the nefarious pharmaceutical companies go about their business.
The artwork in Grey Plague is fantastic and the narrative certainly gives you plenty to think about. It mixes genuine medical research with a touch of Sci-Fi and well written characters a to create a compelling narrative that feels grounded in realism. An infectious adventure well worth catching.
