Hello. I have decided to write a video game. I’ve done a lot with analogue games but this is going to be the first video game I have developed since the 1990s.

It’s going to be called Medicine Edison because I like the rhyme. It’s a small game about a Plague Doctor trying to save his village.

This is going to be a 16 bit platformer designed to be played on MacOS and Linux (specifically, Elementary OS) where your character has to explore a weird medieval world and collect 100 herbs and spices that will brew the potion that will cure their village.

Tech Stack

I’m going to be trying to use an almost exclusive Open Source tech stack.

This covers gameplay loop, graphics, distribution, soundtrack and sound effects.

If you’re interested in following along with the development of this teeny tiny game, then the project homepage is probably the best bet for you to bookmark.
