    No words from devs about further fixing GP office problem. Or any mentions at all. Forums are silent

    I don't really think they are in this for the long run.

    They aimed for a branch of sim games. Lack of support won't help them much, given that game is still in bad shape

    I played the game only briefly (Intel GPU laptop) but it appear to be a modern take on Bullfrog TH, except the lack of sandbox mod. What would those glaring issues be?

    Back when I last played, there were a few. Mostly that the game systems didn't scale well, i.e. after a certain influx of patiens, systems basically broke down and the only way to win those scenarios was dumb luck or gaming the system.
    For example, pathfinding issues paired with lack of fine tuning controls, meant at some point a ton of people died waiting to be diagnosed, because somebody would wander off to the other end of the hospital to frequent a vending machine, was called in while he was there and then his long voyage back meant the queue was fubar'd.
    Were these things fixed at some point? Space Satan doesn't make it sound like it.

    Sega acquires the developer, and they have multiple unannounced titles that will be revealed "in the coming months": https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2019-05-09-sega-acquires-two-point-studios

    They still not fixed GP office overcrowding and pathfinding and they release a DLC with some new models. Grrreat...
    • 3 mysterious new locations
    • 3 new, fully animated cure machines
    • 11 new visual illnesses
    • 34 new illnesses in total
    • New gameplay
    • New music, DJ and tannoy lines
    That is literally nothing to do with game functionality. It will be the same old buggy repetitive game.

    This game is dull as dishwater. Steam review.

    TLDR:
    "A patient appeared and has to go to a particular room. Build that room."
    "OK, I built that room."
    "OK, the patient went there."

    Repeat a hundred times. Then go to the next level and repeat again a thousand times.

    Only good if you are so depressed you want to destroy your time, and you don't even want to play a fun time-waster game while doing it.

    How does this game compare to Theme Hospital?

    Asking because I have. Just. Finished two runs of TH and slightly interested in this game.

    This or replay Startopia.

    The same shit. You will do exactly the same thing like in every other mission. This part where they sell TEXT diseases in DLC is awesome - you add a bit of text and voila - new content! All new diseases are just new animations, base gameplay still suffers from horrendous shortcomings, like cafes being HARMFUL while being more advanced in a "tech tree". PU offices still can't manage queues, 95% of items are useless, the gameplay is so stagnated that you won't deviate from the same build order in each and every mission.
    This game is a fraud and a cashgrab.

    This game is awesome, what the fuck are some guys smoking here? Yes it may have some bugs and issues, oh fuck no game ever had that, i mean Theme Hospital is perfect amirite? Yes it is repetitive, show me a game that is not in some sense repetitive. Seriously this is one of the most hillarius management games on the market.
