Click Medic is an ultra rare PS1 title from the creators of Pokemon, released in 1999, and it was the last game released by Game Freak on a non-Nintendo platform until Solitiba for Android in 2014 and Tembo the Badass Elephant for PS4/X1/PC in 2015.
There's almost none information for this title around the web, but some YT guy managed to sum up a description:
The game looks relatively low-budget on the surface even given its genre, which is a mix of your typical Japanese visual novel and a simulation game, but it is actually more intriguing than one might suspect. In the typical Game Freak fashion, they've gone and made another unique game. If you know about their track record outside of Pokemon, GF typically made unusual games. Quinty (aka Mendel Palace), Pulseman, Mario and Wario, and Bushi Seiryuuden are just a few.
In the near future, mankind is becoming increasingly ill and are beginning to sucuumb to exotic new diseases that criple humans and make them ill, until they eventually die. As doctors struggle to come to grips with the mysterious epidemic sweeping the nation, they figure the only way to stop the diseases is to confront them directly. It's with this notion that the VB(M), or Virtual Body Machine is created.
It takes several years to perfect the VBM and make it safe to use on humans. What exactly does the VBM do? We'll tell you more about it during gameplay. Anyway, you assume the role of a doctor (surprise!) who goes around studying the conditions of various patients and documenting your discoveries for later use. It sounds simple enough, but you'll quickly learn that it's tougher than it sounds! Enjoy.
It is interesting how those virus-type creatures are similar to Pokemon and how the whole vibe of the game feels like a more mature Poke-storyline. Unfortunately the game would probably never be translated, so if any JP speaking GAFer could tell us more about the storyline?
Also, the tune in 2:45 is almost exactly identical to the main Pokemon theme, as well as the other BGM which is too Pokemon-ish.
Some very interesting gameplay videos below:
Some interesting stills:
The blue creature loks like a Starmie with eyes and mouth, while the green thing is like a Grimer pre-evolution:
