“Mask of the Plague Doctor” is a 410,000-word interactive novel by Peter Parrish, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

The town of Thornback Hollow is under quarantine. Its people are unable to sleep, tormented by a disease known as the Waking Death, and the infection is spreading. The Crown has commanded you and two other plague doctors to end the plague, even if that means destroying the town.

In your quest for knowledge, will you try to ease the fear and paranoia of the citizenry, or fan the flames of political unrest? Will your fellow plague doctors become your rivals, allies, or lovers? Will you grasp the true power that watches over the town?

Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bisexual, or aromantic.
Select from a range of mask designs, or opt for one of your own.
Specialize in surgery, medical theory, or uncanny mysticism.
Unearth a cure for the Waking Death, apply traditional medicines, or explore more experimental methods.
Respect the local deity, or throw your support behind a banished sect.
Work with the Crown’s appointed mayor, aid a revolt, or do your best to avoid political intrigue altogether.
Find time for romance with one of your fellow plague doctors, or a dashing mercenary.
Recruit others to your medical cause and perhaps leave a lasting legacy.
Seek induction into the Fellowship of Royal Physicians, or be happy just to escape with your life.

Thornback Hollow is in peril. Can your healing hands soothe the Waking Death to slumber? Or will the town perish to fire and disease?

Mask of the Plague Doctor user reviews :

While I did enjoy this game a lot, I found myself occasionally skimming through and also being vaguely confused. It’s romance factor – from what I understood – was not very prominent but that’s understandable with this being a story that’s not primarily romanced based. All in all though, I did enjoy the story and it did entertain me in the time it took to play and I feel that that is what is most important.

Absolutely incredible! Might be because I’m biased since I loved the ending I got. Review might contain a bit of spoilers. I’ve bought a few of their choice games, but I think this one is my favourite. The pacing, the design and the way you get a epilogue after the “end” makes it extremely satisfying. I went for the “religious route” and I adore the last chapter since it almost appeared as if I was reading folktales describing my character and the environment from someone else’s point of view!!

Dear gosh, I don’t think I’ve been willing to do a full run-through for a choice game in a long time, but this game is so worth it! The intrigue towards the plot is amazing, your character truly takes on personality as you make choices (not just on your own personality and morals), and I fell in love with every character and searched every detail! It never fails to amaze me with the amount of urgency the story actually got from me! One of the best CGs I’ve played yet, kudos to the author!

What a brilliant story and concept! You can see that in the story that the author did such a serious job at researching about plague doctors and the medical situation in middle ages. Also I liked the stats and the many paths which your character can take, and I liked that each path didn’t lack a bit. And one thing that I must mention is that I loved that we can avoid to give answer/reaction to the characters by stroking an animal instead. Lol. Really recommended from me to try this game!

I love the writing. Though not one of my fav COGs (because im not a fan of open ended stories on my characters future), it is definitely quality work. Fun to replay as well. If the author is making a sequel, i will retract my statement about it not being one of my favourites. Also, it is very important to mention that you can pet animals in this game. Big plus
