Si le thème des simulations hospitalières ne vous émeut pas, rassurez-vous, derrière l’annonce aujourd’hui de la résurrection de Theme Hospital se cache dirait-on un projet plus ambitieux, celui d’une série de simulations thématiques qui pourraient, hypothétiquement pour l’instant, se décliner façon Theme Prison, Theme Resort, deux idées sur lesquelles le studio se serait déjà penché.
Seul bémol de taille à ce concept sympathique, comme on le voit ici une fois de plus les développeurs ont opté pour une représentation plus que niaise, un style vraiment très prononcé à coté duquel Les Sims voire Civilization VI passeraient pour des jeux photoréalistes. Bon, au-delà du choix artistique en outre appuyé aussi pour la bande-annonce, la justification avancée par le studio est ici celle de l’humour. Admettons, mais là il va en falloir beaucoup pour faire avaler aux joueurs une telle pilule … simiesque. D’autant plus pour un jeu à la base de réflexion, et qui donnera lieu probablement à de longues parties. Bref. Espérons que le gameplay suivra, sinon, après tout, le futur Anno 1800 d’Ubisoft promet lui en fin d’année un véritable régal pour vos pupilles.
Two Point Hospital Announced Alongside Ground-Breaking Treatment for Light Headedness
London, England – 16th January 2018 – SEGA Europe Ltd. and Two Point Studios today announced a revolutionary new treatment for ‘Light-Headedness’ in their newly revealed game, Two Point Hospital, coming to Steam in late 2018. In what ‘experts’ are describing as a ‘light bulb moment for completely fictional medicine’, the Farnham based studio are drawing plaudits for their inception of the ‘De-Lux Clinic’, which is being rolled out across Two Point County to tackle the recent epidemic of this filamentally flummoxing affliction.
Light-Headedness was first experienced by patient zero, known only as Trevor. You can follow the illuminating story of Trevor and his battle with this rare disease by watching our enlightening infomercial about Two Point Hospital.
Two Point Hospital, inspired by and from the creators of Theme Hospital, is set to be a return to one of gaming’s most loved sim genres. Two Point Hospital draws on the experience of some the gaming industry’s most experienced and successful sim developers, who between them, in addition to Theme Hospital, have worked on titles like Black and White, Theme Park and Fable at studios including Bullfrog, Lionhead and Mucky Foot. Two Point Hospital will deliver a compelling experience packed with the humour, charm and replayability fans of the genre have come to expect.
“We’re delighted to finally announce the fruits of our partnership with Two Point Studios and reveal Two Point Hospital to the world,” said John Clark, Executive Vice President of Publishing for SEGA Europe. “We’re committed to finding and working with the best new studios, ones that fit with SEGA’s ethos to deliver new IP with strong franchise potential. Two Point Studios’ vision for Two Point Hospital and their ambitions for it fit perfectly with that notion and we look forward to releasing their game later this year.”
“Gary and I have been talking about this project for a number of years and are really excited to be announcing Two Point Studios’ first game” said Mark Webley, Co-Founder of Two Points Studios. His fellow Co-Founder, Gary Carr added: “The amazing team we have managed to bring together, and our partnership with Sega, has really allowed this first part of our vision to finally come to fruition”.
