The Plague Doctor of Wippra will see you attempt to help people but ignorance, superstition, and religious zeal will firmly get in your way. Developer Electrocosmos and publisher Application Systems Heidelberg have announced it's releasing with Native Linux support on October 5th.

"The Plague Doctor of Wippra is a short point-and-click adventure filled with medical puzzles, medieval period detail, and beautiful, hand-drawn pixel art. Expect interesting characters, a gripping story, and captivating gameplay in a historical setting with contemporary resonance.

Experience a working day as medieval German plague doctor Oswald Keller. Make diagnoses, prescribe treatments, and even perform surgery. You'll also have to face popular ignorance and stand up to superstition. It's dangerous work, but it's your only chance at finding the cause of the Black Death."

"Dangerous work" is kind of understating it, I would think. The doctor seems to have the "superstition" that he can survive hanging around plague victims. You wouldn't catch most medieval people falling for that one.
