Description: Nearly two hundred years ago, an English doctor drew his final breath inside his country home. It was not yet clear how history would remember him. For this was a man who had deliberately infected his patients with diseases, and whose pastimes included feeding human blood to his plants. The great enemy of the British Empire, Napoleon Bonaparte, could be counted amongst his admirers. Thomas Jefferson asserted with presidential vigour that this was one doctor that ‘mankind can never forget’. But we have forgotten…

Explore a beautifully reconstructed 18th-century Georgian house in virtual reality as you rediscover the story of one of the world’s most terrifying diseases through the words of real historical characters.

Review: Its get this straight before we start this review. This IS NOT a game at all and in any respect, it is an educational app designed to teach you about the history of smallpox and the people that helped cure it. While I will admit it was interesting a lot of people might well download this expecting some sort of adventure game and that is not what this is at all. So when it comes to value for money it is hard to say, because it is only really of value to someone who might have in interest researching this kind of thing. But for most PSVR players this is probably not going to be worth downloading.
