One of the great things about Theme Hospital was not just that it was a management sim, but the humour infused throughout, from the crazy illnesses and diseases, to the announcements playing at random, from the hooded figure of death roaming your halls to the rat killing mini-game.
Please PLEASE do not just create a hospital management sim game focusing on realism, inject humour into every subtle aspect of it.
But instead of shooting mouse with the mouse, the facility manager should take care of them- and of gnomes and sock eating monsters as well. I would like to see the invisble guys again- how obout a speial sience order by a secret service to figure out how to make people invisible?
Hi everybody, I just wanted to show up and thank you for your ideas, keep them coming! While busy with all the PR, we (the dev team) are reading the forum and we'll be going through your feedback during our design discussions. Cheers!
Oh, please... I still remember the first time I saw how they cured the baloon head illness... that was just hillarious... But also, more complexity and deep in the management mechanics was something i would love to see -compared with that old game ;)
I suport the idea of 2 modes, "realism" and "funy or silly". Also, it would be great if it includes an "hospitalization" feature, just like real hospitals. I´m a doctor and i really want to try the realism mode, and with hospitalization would be more real yet.
Hi, regarding the different modes - we want to explore the topic in depth, so the set of real world based diseases and departments is at the core of the design. Still, there's a lot of room for us to add some funny character interactions or quirks (and Easter eggs of course :) ). Also, the game will be moddable and we're pretty sure we won't have to wait long for crazy medical conditions to start popping up!
