    This game is like the first one in ages I'm genuinely looking forward to play.

    Since it's basically a Theme Hospital remake, and TH isn't really a complex game to begin with, they can't really fuck it up too badly, can they?

    Yeah, too many disappointments in that direction.
    I'm looking at you, most recent Pizza Connection...

    However, at least from the footage so far and the fact that it won't force me to use Windows, this one gets some cautious optimism.

    The graphics looks worse than original cartoony style, lets hope the mechanics are ok

    Looks like a Wallace and Gromit hospital sim.

    I also prefered the classic 2D look, but if the gameplay is good, it may fit...

    Saw this one on a stream and was happy to see a few Mucky Foot references tucked away as well. These guys have the pedigree for sure, and the diseases look appropriately hilarious.

    Speaking of Bullfrog, did you guys know Demis Hassabis (boy genius behind Theme Park and later Evil Genius) made Google's DeepMind AI? Meanwhile, Molyneux continues down the huckster rabbit hole...

    I guess I'll preorder it. My greatest concern is financial aspect, that getting money will be extremely trivial, or fate of planet coaster, but I suppose it will make a nice compensation for all Bullfrog games I pirated in my childhood

    Noticed this one as well so hoping it doesn't disappoint. (CorsixTH still has some way to go)
    They're targeting all the major platforms so kudos for that.
    ^^ Freddie Mercury syndrome is obviously a reference to King Complex; likewise for the other conditions that we'll see.
    Played Theme Park back on the Amiga 500+ but Theme Hospital was always my favorite.

    I suppose it remains to be seen whether the game is as witty as the original bullfrog game.
    There were lots of subtle social references (like the banker with cash stuffed everywhere) amongst the zaniness that made the game so memorable.
    The music and videos were top notch as well.
    The whole game was a wonderful satire of non-free health care.

    Looks like they've kept the staff personality descriptions and added some special skills (like ghostcatcher for handymen)
    Receptionists don't appear to keep working indefinitely like in the original :(
    The inclusion of the rat shooting bonus levels are a must!

    What I like: they've stayed true to the original when it comes to the cartoony style. It has much more soul than the modern generic styles games like this usually employ.
    What I DON'T like: the game seems TOO FUCKING CLEAN. Theme hospital that I remember had dirty hallways, rats roaming around and people puking all over the floor.

    They've confirmed a monobow beasts in place of rats and yes you can shoot them.

    I remember paying more to janitors than doctors in every single level of this game and the hallways were still half-covered in puke and litter.

    Skilled doctor asking for a raise = shit canned.

    Super fast moving janitor asking for a raise = shutup and take my money.

    Any brave soul D1P'ing this? I too have uberfond memories of Theme Hospital, but I've always been a shitty and occasional sim player. Just hoping that they get the core gameplay loop right, and haven't learned too much from browser games.

    If nothing else, it's got a great soundtrack. Has that Sim City relaxing vibe.

    The game's Steam forum is a massive dramafest right now because the devs added the Denuvo implementation sign to the game's Steam store page only today. Some people not even noticing the obvious trolls fanning the flames are the cherry on top :lol:
