* XMeetsY: It's as if the works of [[Literature/TheMasterAndMargarita Mikhail Bulgakov]], Creator/FranzKafka, some works of GermanExpressionism Hieronymus Bosch and ChinaMieville were thrown into a single pot and cooked thoroughly into a delicious MindScrew horror soup.

The game received many good reviews praising its atmosphere and picked up dozens of awards in its native country. Sadly, the English translation was, before the remaster,[[BlindIdiotTranslation absolutely incomprehensible]], which, coupled with the developer being practically unknown outside Russia, resulted in poor sales. This game is not for everyone, and there is a lot to take in in order to master its brutally complex mechanics. It is, however, a very powerful, emotionally draining experience, and not to be missed.

The game received many good reviews praising its atmosphere and picked up dozens of awards in its native country. Sadly, the English translation was [[BlindIdiotTranslation absolutely incomprehensible]], which, coupled with the developer being practically unknown outside Russia, resulted in poor sales. (Though retranslation projects have been planned, none were ever finished.) This is not a game for everyone. As with many SurvivalHorror games, ''Pathologic'' has no parts that can really be considered conventionally "fun". From a technical standpoint, it didn't age well, and there's a lot to take in in order to master its brutally complex mechanics. It is, however, a very powerful, emotionally draining experience, and not to be missed.

Ice-Pick Lodge had started a Website/{{Kickstarter}} campaign to [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1535515364/pathologic create a remake]] of this game in September 2014. This remake aims to improve the translation, graphics, quest structure, and several other aspects while striving to maintain the atmosphere, themes, and overall storyline.

And hark everyone, a HD Remaster (that will not interfere with the remake), featuring improved textures, new voice acting and (most importantly) a revised script, was released on [[http://www.gog.com/game/pathologic_classic_hd Gog.com]] and [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/384110/ Steam]] on 29th of October 2015.

* RefugeInAudacity On Klara's route when she tries to trick the Kains (of all people) by using her ability to [[spoiler: make people tell the truth]] on them. She is skating on thin ice as the Kains are already hostile towards her and even have a bounty on her head for most of the game. What she doesn't realise is that they all knew exactly what she was doing and were just playing along. when Klara tries it a second time on Maria she immediately gets called out on it. However Maria is so amused that she even tried it and thought they wouldn't notice in the first place, and even begrudgingly admiring of her nerve/cheek, she declines to kill her as she threatened earlier and lets Klara go.

* WeCanRuleTogether: Maria takes an immediately shine to the Bachelor; as he's no stranger to breaking the rules of nature, he is the more morally-ambiguous of the three protagonists.
