WARNING: game contains nudity! As the name suggests you will be a general practitioner, an ordinary doctor who works in a private clinic. It's a visual-novel-style game with many RPG elements. The medical part, written in collaboration with a real doctor, will be simulative. In the game you will meet many characters, each with its own agenda and personality. Patients will come to your clinic looking for treatment for various illnesses. It's up to you to do a checkup on them. Which body part will you examine? Will you make the right diagnosis or worsen things? Will you defer your patient to a specialist or continue treating her in order to gain more money? The medical part is a simulation. I'm working with a real doctor, friend of mine, who tells me what happens in medical clinics (Italian ones, since I'm Italian) and all the medical informations are real. My inspiration are the old medical simulations like the "Emergency Room series" from Legacy Games.
