Indie developer Oxymoron Games has revealed Project Hospital – yes, I know what you’re thinking… To be fair, the developer isn’t really denying it either, Bullfrog Productions’ Theme Hospital is a clear inspiration:
“Do you remember when building a hospital was the hottest thing on PC? Watching your patients get cured, trying to avoid the inevitable crisis and making your name in the world of medicine.
We believe that the hospital theme deserves a proper fresh take and we’re working hard to make an accessible hospital management game with a lot of depth. Will Project Hospital cure our nostalgia?”
So yeah, Project Hospital allows you to “become an aspiring architect, a successful manager and an ace doctor all at the same time.” Just take a look at this trailer:
While we’re not that sure of the art style ourselves, this looks to be very faithful to Theme Hospital – while hopefully adding a few new tricks in there too. One to watch out for. It’s due next year on PC via Steam.
