About the Story

You see, when the scientists had thought that the only smallpox around was in a very very small box kept securely closed, they were wrong. When you come into the clinic today, seven people have already died. A nurse is missing. He's probably gone, too. You think that his name was Simon. You are a doctor at Mercy Hospital, euthanizing people that suffer from smallpox. Long ago, you have stopped caring, about anything. Or have you?

Off-Site Reviews

Chris Klimas says that he hopes "Mercy" is something new in the
interactive fiction universe. I don't know if that's true or not, but
it certainly was a breath of fresh air for me to play and it clearly
is different. I love the feelings it stirs in me, the disturbing
moodiness that hangs over the whole thing, the "love story", as it
were... I kinda wish he'd kept it until the competition. It would
have grabbed *my* highest rating.
