Theme Hospital 2 or Two point Hospital.

Postby Lee » Wed Jan 17, 2018 11:18 am

So two guys from the Bullfrog days are making a Theme Hospital game and retaining the whacky humour once more :)



Players are heading their own hospital, in which they always build new treatment rooms and other rooms and manage the cash. Patients come to the hospital with playful illnesses such as heads that change into light bulbs. The new game is being developed by the independent studio Two Point Studios, which was set up by game developers Mark Webley and Gary Carr. They previously played a key role at Bullfrog, the company responsible for the Theme Hospital published in 1997. Two Point Hospital. As the title suggests, Two Point Hospital is a simulation game where players must manage the ins-and-outs of a hospital treating a variety of diseases like lightheadedness, which causes one's head to turn into a lightbulb. Two Point Hospital will release on PC sometime in late 2018.


Another one to look out for then :)

Got my eyes firmly on this, lost many hours to the original.

Take my fucking money.

Played the original on GOG a while back and it is still great.

"Will patients please refrain from dying in the corridor."

Funny, but also strangely prescient.

I never got around to playing the original, but my son did. To say he is excited is an understatement.
Just once I want radiation to turn something into a giant fluffy bunny, instead of the Grand Poobah of all Mirelurks.

It was excellent!

This is definitely on my radar.

Available for pre-order on Steam. I have punted them the asking price, I absolutely fucking loved Theme Hospital and even if it is just a remake with a lick of paint, I will be all over it.

Doesn't look like it is though:

"Hospital administrator is cheating!"
Saw they put it up for pre-order so... pre-ordered!

After my last run of Theme Hospital was scuppered by a glitch, I'm ready to start over with this.

There are a few Let's Plays going up on Youtube of the press edition if anyone fancies seeing it all in action.

I'll take a look, but if there's one thing that drives me nuts, it's watching Theme Hospital videos.
It's like I've done the first few hospitals so many times, I lose it when the person playing makes one giant GP office miles away from the entrance. :lol:

Quill18 is the one that flashed up on my recommended videos list. I used to watch one of his Planet Coaster series and he's not irritatingly boisterous like many Youtubers. And he puts the reception desk and GP's office near the front door to start.
