Ice-Pick Lodge, the developer of Pathologic 2 has announced that they have four projects in development, including the "promised continuation" of Pathologic 2. However, all of the stories except Pathologic 2's continuation will be on the smaller scale.
The most interesting project is Pathologic 2: Bachelor's scenario, with the developers taking into account the mistakes that they made with Pathologic 2 and raising their bar higher. Ice-Pick Lounge is trying to make the Bachelor's gameplay much more different than what has already been experienced. Not much is known outside of that except that the game will arrive in "the foreseeable future." We'll see about that.
Besides the continuation of Pathologic 2, the first game that's coming is Know by heart, which is coming for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and then iOS and Android. The game itself has events that unfold in Russia, with the main protagonist, Misha, reuniting with his childhood friends after a long time apart from one another. The reunion goes great until something out of their control ruins the reunion.
The second game is Neuro Skazka, which is coming for iOS/Android. It's a game that "deals with the evolution of a universe grown below the cranial vault of a god which falls asleep." Apparently the god's brain is a solar system and planets are its neurons. Yep, definitely sounds like a game from Ice-Pick Lounge.
The third new title is Franz, which is also coming for iOS and Android. It's a game that apparently "tests the limits of control", forcing the player to think about artificial intelligence and if players have full control over the game they are playing. Is it a lie? Who knows, but we may find out in Franz.
