Search For A Cure As A Plague Doctor In This Medieval Survival RPG

The Black Death, the medieval survival RPG from Small Impact Games and Green Man Gaming Publishing, is launching Pestilence, the latest update in its active development cycle. This major update brings a new player experience to the game, allowing them to enter the world of Mercia as a plague doctor looking for a cure – any way they choose.


With the Pestilence update, the team at Small Impact Games has delivered a complete overhaul of many major systems in The Black Death. Everything from inventory menus to customization of houses has been tweaked and refined, allowing players to face the deadliest pandemic of the Middle Ages in their own way.


Players start their journey as a plague doctor searching for cure in a land inspired by 14th Century Europe, and are able to take on all new quests from local villagers to help find a cure to the plague. Adapting your play style has been dramatically changed, allowing players to pick skills from a variety of different professions, like Cook, Blacksmith, Huntsman and more, at any time.


“This update for The Black Death brings new and exciting opportunities for players to interact with the world of Mercia. By introducing new key features, like the quest system, it will be even easier for players to gain access to farming, house customization, and professions within the game,” says Mitch Small, Founder of Small Impact Games.


“The Black Death has been going from strength to strength throughout Early Access, and with this latest update, Small Impact Games have delivered a fantastic new vision. We look forward to seeing the community reaction as the game moves closer to full release in 2018,” says Gary Rowe, EVP Publishing at Green Man Gaming
