Druuna: Morbus Gravis is a third-person perspective adventure game based on the comic of the same name developed by Artematica, published by Microids, and released on 27 September 2001.

A deadly virus is spreading rapidly, transforming the population into bloodthirsty monsters. The only person who can help your decaying city is the beautiful woman lying on a cot in your laboratory. Comatose, she is hooked up to a computer. The answers to what happened and why are locked inside her brain. Only by reliving her memories can you hope to save yourself and others.

Based on the writings and masterful artistry of Italian Paulo Eleuteri Serpieri, this Adult Adventure game follows the story from his book of the same name. It takes place in a chaotic, futuristic city, where Druuna, the voluptuous main character, lives. In 3rd person perspective, use your joystick or keyboard to manipulate Druuna and discover the secrets that will lead to the salvation of her city.

This game contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Modesty: The original comic books were pretty much your regular hardcore Porn with Plot. Here, sex is not only not shown, it's not even implied and if it weren't for Druuna's skimpy outfit (and even then, she doesn't usually wear pants in the comics), it would be one hundred percent acceptable for younger audiences. That is, if you don't mind tons of Gorn.
  • Covers Always Lie: No, Druuna does not unzip those pants at any point in the game.
  • Cult: At one point, Druuna runs afoul of one of these.
  • Sex Sells: Again, no, she does not unzip those pants!
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Admittedly, Organ Hunter had an interesting goal of creating a new race of humans. Too bad his methods involved removing parts from people, displaying them in a meat locker, and planning on subjecting Druuna to this fate.
