Surgeon Simulator 2013: hopefully not training the doctors of today
When you see a game with the tagline 'do you have the guts to play?' you know you can't take it (completely) seriously... From the screenshots we've seen, it's also worth noting - this is not one for the faint of heart.
Surgeon Simulator 2013 is a darkly humorous over-the-top operation sim game where players become Nigel Burke, an ordinary guy taking life into his own shaky hands, performing life-saving surgical manoeuvres on passive patients.
The original prototype – developed in just 48 hours at the 2013 Global Game Jam in January – challenged players to complete a heart transplant using a combination of keyboard and mouse actions, armed only with an arsenal of clumsy and inappropriate tools and a hapless hand that was diabolical to control.
Surgeon Simulator 2013 is available to buy from this evening on Steam at a price of £6.99 or equivalent.
