Set during the epidemic of 1665, The Great Plague Exodus is a strategy game where you manage a family escaping from London as they try to survive the black death.

Travel from city to city as you struggle to escape the grip of the Black Death. Explore the chaotic lands of an England brought to its knees by the Great Plague as you journey north.

Manage every detail of your family, from their work to their hobbies to their medicines. Select activities for each family member based on their background, manage their health, morale and even where you live.

On the road, money can be the difference between life and death. With jobs ranging from dangerous grave-digging to comfortable jobs like a parish clerk your life choices are essential. If things get too tight you can always sell your family jewels, or maybe someone else’s.

With 100s of randomly generated events the story comes to life, crafting a unique narrative for each player as you navigate a world in crises. Will you be able to live morally while your children starve or give in to your desperation? Experience an authentic world with all new custom artwork accompanying the events helping you to truly inhabit the life of a London refugee.

The Great Plague Exodus was made with the current ongoing pandemic in mind, as businesses shutter and countries lockdown, I thought it was interesting to look back onto how our ancestors coped with disease before modern medicine. The research proved to be fascinating and from it The Great Plague Exodus was born.

Key Features:

  • Unique family creator
  • Inventory system with historical medicines
  • Activities system to assign duties to family members
  • Morale & Health management
  • Travel system between 6 towns across England
  • Over 100 Dynamic Events

The Great Plague Exodus is coming to PC (Steam) on February 5, 2021.
