PR - The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, a new FMV murder mystery for Switch

Bridgend, UK, 30th November 2017 - Wales Interactive are delighted to announce a partnership with D’Avekki Studios to bring the Lovecraftian FMV murder mystery, The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2018.

In The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, YOU are a psychiatrist, trying to solve a murder whilst treating the unusual patients of the recently deceased Doctor Dekker. Ask any questions and collect the evidence as you uncover the identity of the randomly generated murderer whilst figuring out how to fix the chaos left behind.

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker invites you to explore the shadow reality that your patients inhabit – a world full of paranormal strangeness and horrors that go bump in your head, where all you have to rely on is your own mind.

Originally released on PC, the text adventure FMV is now optimised for console to include a suggested questions system which eliminates the need for a keyboard. Anyone with a keyboard will still have the option to type questions, phrases or keywords. The console version will also feature visual and navigational UI enhancements.

FMV - 1600+ full screen HD video responses.
RANDOM MURDERER - Chosen at the start of the game to combat spoilers.
FREE TEXT INPUT - Ask whatever you want, type questions, phrases or just keywords.
SUGGESTED QUESTIONS – A new question system optimised for console.
MULTIPLE ENDINGS - Find out whodunit, and what happens to you and your patients...
MULTIPLE STORIES - 6 main suspects and 5 side-quests inc. John Guilor (Contradiction)
SIMPLE UI - View evidence, make notes, watch replays, and see your question history.

“We couldn’t be happier to bring D’Avekki’s sinister murder mystery to PS4, Xbox One and Switch. Our previous interactive movie titles, Late Shift and The Bunker, have been really well received and our growing community of FMV fans have expressed an appetite for us to publish more of these titles. TIMODD is another great example of a modern FMV game and we’re delighted to collaborate with D’Avekki Studios to bring this title to a wider audience.” David Banner, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Wales Interactive.

“Wales Interactive have curated a superb catalogue of FMV titles and we're really looking forward to working with them on the console releases." Tim Cowles, Director and Co-Writer at D’Avekki Studios.

“The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker puts the psychology in psychological horror — each character has layers of twisted story to uncover and the player can choose to help them and steer them towards their happiest ending, or hurt them and lead them somewhere much darker.” Lynda Cowles, Co-Writer at D’Avekki Studios.

Wonder how long this will be.... Bit Hell yeah this looks like good fun.

Man, I agree! But apparently it has a PC version, which I think I might lean towards. This is giving me vibes of an old Flash game called "The Asylum" about curing plush toys of their psychoses. It was... much better than it sounds.

I guess I can find that Asylum game, eh?

About this on Switch. Well I might want to be all teenager and play this with a headset on under the blanket Smile

Dunno. Switch is my prime gaming system just now, but I am yet to get a gaming PC and a PS4 (this one soon). But guess this is best with a keyboard for the text input.

It was German, so I think it's better googled by the name "Die Anstalt."

And I TOTALLY get the desire to make this maximum spoop. :D I just don't like typing with onscreen keyboards for long periods of time. If it has a touchscreen keyboard in handheld mode, then I might be more willing to play it like that. Super glad this is coming to Switch, though!

Good thing I speak german then. Thanks.

Last game I played that was free text like this was Starship Titanic. Now THAT was a very PC game. Maybe a Switch demo would be a nice...touch.
P.S: kinda remember Switch keyboards....

This doesn’t appeal to me one bit, but I recognize that when games like this are appearing on the Switch, the market for it must be healthy. It’s a good sign even if not for me.
