Theme Hospital fans will be interested in this news. We are at least.
Two Point Hospital, a sim game inspired by and developed by creators of Theme Hospital, is set to arrive on Steam later this year.
The team at Two Point Studios working on the game is made up of former Bullfrog, Lionhead and Mucky Foot developers.
If you’ve never given Theme Hospital a try, it’s available on Origin for PC. It’s rather addictive, honestly. It was made available as an On the House title back in 2015 for a limited time. It will now run you $4.99 through the service.
According to the synopsis for Two Point Hospital, a treatment for Light-Headedness has been found. It was first experienced by patient zero, known only as Trevor. This is explained a bit in the infomercial-style video below.
Here’a a list game features:
- Design Your Hospital
Build and customise your hospital – it is yours after all – with specialist diagnosis and treatment facilities, as well as the very latest in ornamental technology.
- Cure Your Patients
Feeling light-headed? Just wait until you see the other unusual illnesses afflicting the people of Two Point County. Care for, and profit from, the ill: that seems like it’s probably a win-win. They’ll need feeding, entertaining and curing if they’re going to recommend you to all their equally unwell friends! That cash isn’t going to make itself, now.
- Manage Your Staff
Hire your staff, juggle their demands and cater to their personalities. Train a crack team that can handle every sickly challenge that’s thrown at it, and fire anyone that can’t.
- Expand Your Organisation
Grow the sickness business across the beautiful Two Point County. Research illnesses and develop new inventions to compete with rival healthcare companies.
- Collaborate and Compete with Friends
Once you’ve conquered the world with your medical empire, contribute to Two Point County’s global medical community with collaborative research projects, or demonstrate your medical prowess in competitive multiplayer challenges.
Those who sign-up for the Hospital Pass through the official website will also be handed a free item to use in Two Point Hospital when the game releases.
Two Point Hospital will launch for PC via Steam and the SEGA Store later this year.
