Medical Drama or Hospital in Crisis?
> Tune In and Find Out In Hospital Tycoon Coming Soon for the PC!
> Burbank, CA ­ Wednesday, April 4, 2007 ­ Will Dr. Dave ever fall in love
> with Nurse Susie? Will Nurse Susie¹s hopes of injecting some passion into
> the hospital end up in vain? Is Sally the receptionist¹s technique for
> warming thermometers hygienic (or even legal)? Tune in now to Codemasters
> first Hospital Tycoon trailer, currently available for download from
> www.codemasters.com/hospitaltycoon or www.youtube.com/codiesgames and come
> away none the wiser.
> At the Sapphire Beach Medical Institute, the lives and loves of the
> hospital¹s doctors and nurses, as well as the sneezes and diseases of its
> patients, will come alive this June when Hospital Tycoon launches
> exclusively for PC. Fusing ŒTycoon¹ style gameplay with character
> simulation and a light-hearted narrative, Hospital Tycoon is set to give
> players a soap-opera feel as they progress through episodes of hospital
> drama¹s Story Mode.
> Each episode in Hospital Tycoon explores a plot involving certain members of
> the hospital¹s staff and some very interesting patients, while at the same
> time challenging players to find cures for bizarre new illnesses. Diseases
> range from the everyday Explosive Sneezing ­ where a simple sneeze can
> launch the unfortunate patient several feet into the air, to the more rare
> Monkey Nuts ­ where patients sprout fur, climb furniture and favor bananas
> over everyday person food.
> Hospital Tycoon staff members have rich behaviors that players can nurture
> and influence throughout the game. Gamers may choose to encourage a
> friendship or a falling-out of sorts, and can train staff to improve their
> skill levels. Players will also be challenged to manage and maintain each
> hospital, creating dedicated areas to support additional medical needs,
> including surgery, diagnosis, physiotherapy and more. As more patients are
> cured, the more players can expand their medical empire and attract new, and
> even more interesting patients. However, as the hospital becomes busier,
> players will have to be on the lookout for the spread of infectious
> conditions or they¹ll soon have an epidemic running riot throughout the
> facility.
