Y'know what? We're pretty sure 14th century Europe is a place you don't really want to hang out. Not only do the surgeons not wear gloves and cough onto your open guts, there's even less chance of getting some of McDonald's limited-edition szechuan sauce. Still, it provides what may be one of your biggest gaming challenges yet: can you survive the black death?
This is the question at the heart of a game called, well, The Black Death. It's a Survival game set within that most desperate time of European history - when everyone was puking, growing buboes, and then dying a painful death on a bed of straw. Your task, apart from avoiding the disease as it spreads, is to find a cure. Yeah, good luck with that.
