A launch trailer has been released for The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker from developer D’Avekki Studios and publisher Wales Interactive.
The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is a live-action interactive story, or FMV (full-motion video) game. It’s a Lovecraftian murder mystery in which you play as a psychiatrist who must not only help the patients of the recently deceased Dr. Dekker with their problems, but also try to figure out who killed the doctor. You do this by asking questions, either by typing them in yourself or choosing from some suggested options, and looking at the evidence, watching replays, and more before you come to a conclusion. The game features over 1600 video responses, which actually set the Guinness World Record for most full-motion video in a game.

The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is a Lovecraftian FMV murder mystery, which gives players full freedom to question suspects by typing their own questions instead of picking them from a predetermined list. There are no point and click puzzles to solve, just questions to ask and evidence to inspect.
Finding out who killed Dr Dekker is only one part of the puzzle; working out how to fix the chaos he left behind will be so much trickier… As well as providing clues to the murder, each patient has their own bizarre problem they need your help with – from time manipulation and re-animated loved ones to horrors under the sea.
Complete with an atmospheric soundtrack, The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker invites you to explore the shadow reality that your patients inhabit – a world full of paranormal strangeness and horrors that go bump in your head, where all you have to rely on is your own mind.
Just try not to lose it…
