Act 1 is the first act of Rhythm Doctor.


The story starts with Ian prompting the intern to begin calibration for the Rhythm Doctor program. Once calibration has finished Ian will reveal he started playing a videogame due to the calibration taking too long and will instruct Paige to lead the intern to the first patient.




IanSpriteS.png Oh! Y-you're here!
IanSpriteS.png Thanks for joining Rhythm Doctor, our remote defibrillation program!
IanSpriteS.png We'd have liked to do this in person, but everyone's working from home these days...
IanSpriteS.png Anyways, before we begin, you need to know something important.
IanSpriteS.png Treating patients in Rhythm Doctor is ideally done by SLAMMING the spacebar.
IanSpriteS.png This is so that you can hear the spacebar's CLACK...
IanSpriteS.png ...and use your ears to tell you when the sound of your spacebar is perfectly in time with the beat.
IanSpriteS.png You might be in a situation where you cannot SLAM your spacebar. In that case, you can tap lightly to the beat instead.
IanSpriteS.png Do you prefer to SLAM or TAP?
[Player is asked to select preferred input style.]
If SLAM is selected: 
IanSpriteS.png OK! R-remember to SLAM the spacebar when playing Rhythm Doctor.
If TAP is selected: 
IanSpriteS.png OK! R-remember to tap the spacebar when playing Rhythm Doctor.
[Calibration continues.]
IanSpriteS.png Now to make sure the sound is synced to what you see in your screen, let's do some visual calibration.
IanSpriteS.png Please turn your volume up to hear the beeps.
IanSpriteS.png In this part, press LEFT or RIGHT to make the green lights blink earlier or later.
IanSpriteS.png Try to match it so the green lights blink at the same time as the beep sounds.
IanSpriteS.png When you feel they are in sync, press SPACE to confirm.
 [Player is asked to sync the beep sounds with the blinking bars.]
IanSpriteS.png A-awesome! Visuals should now be synced to audio.
IanSpriteS.png Finally, we have to calibrate your spacebar's input.
IanSpriteS.png (Last part, I promise.)
  [Player is asked to calibrate input latency]
IanSpriteS.png Press SPACE on the seventh beat. Try to be as accurate as possible.
IanSpriteS.png Start now!
[Calibration ends.]
IanSpriteS.png Your inputs should now be properly calibrated. You should now be ready to treat patients, good luck!
IanSpriteS.png Okay, you're all set up!
IanSpriteS.png You know, you're our first remote intern. We could really use the help.
IanSpriteS.png I actually, uh, started up a game because the calibration took so long.
IanSpriteS.png It's a ranked match, so I can't quit out right now. I'm almost done.
IanSpriteS.png Your first patient's over there. Dr Paige can help you out.
PaigeSpriteS.png ...Ian, this was your job.
IanSpriteS.png S-sorry!

[Tutorial Begins]

PaigeSpriteS.png Alright, you, behind your computer. Hi!
PaigeSpriteS.png Our shift is really busy right now, so let's get right to it.
PaigeSpriteS.png We treat patients suffering from different chest pains and heart conditions.
PaigeSpriteS.png You treat patients by pressing your spacebar on the seventh beat.
PaigeSpriteS.png Got it? Listen to the music and press only on the seventh beat.
PaigeSpriteS.png Here we go.
On hit:
IanSpriteS.png Perfect, keep going!
PaigeSpriteS.png Looks like you've got internal rhythm.
PaigeSpriteS.png Good...
IanSpriteS.png Excellent, keep going.
PaigeSpriteS.png That's it. One more time, without cues.
[Tutorial Ends]
PaigeSpriteS.png Great, you've got the hang of it.
IanSpriteS.png Congratulations!
PaigeSpriteS.png Looks like we're ready to move on.
IanSpriteS.png (I lost my match, though...)
PaigeSpriteS.png We've got a lot of patients to treat, so let's get started.
