Theme Hospital was a fun hospital/business simulation game that captured the hearts of many PC gamers after it was released by Bullfrog Productions and EA back in 1997. While Bullfrog Productions was eventually shut down by EA, the passion and drive to create a spiritual successor was retained within some of the game’s developers. Today, Two Point Interactive, which is made up of former Theme Hospital developers like Gary Carr and Mark Webley, announced their first title, a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital made in partnership with SEGA: 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. As you can see, the game also contains a a ton of wit and charm to keep the game fun and engaging for players. SEGA partnered with Two Point Studios last year and had been teasing this game on Twitter for the past few days.
Mark Webley and Gary Carr seemed quite happy to reveal this project, as Two Point Hospital is something they have been working on for “a number of years” and are developing it with an “amazing team.” Meanwhile, SEGA Europe’s Executive Vice President of Publishing John Clark had the following to say about the title:
“We’re delighted to finally announce the fruits of our partnership with Two Point Studios and reveal Two Point Hospital to the world. 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.”
