A Grim Prognosis

It's already been a long night for you and the rest of the Palliative Care Team. The sun is rising when the Head Nurse calls you into a side ward. 'This one's tough,' she says as you enter. 'Here,' - she hands you a chart. Patient's name, Billy Kerr; age, 60; taken off a flight from Sydney to London following a massive heart attack. 'A weaker man would be dead already. I think we have to be prepared for the worst. I want you and your team to make sure his remaining days are as comfortable as they can be.'

Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr is a co-operative game where players work as Nursing Staff tasked with providing care for the terminally ill. Your latest patient has been rushed in following a massive heart attack on a flight from Sydney to London. When the game begins all you know is this - his name is Billy Kerr, he is 60 years old, and he has been given days to live. Players must work together to provide Billy with appropriate care, responding to medical emergencies while gaining his trust.

Over the course of ten linked and fully replayable Scenarios, you will need to piece together a lifetime of memories while being drawn deeper into his troubled past. As you discover more about Billy, can you help him find the courage required to confront the three regrets that keep him holding on?
