CODEMASTERS PRESCRIBES HOSPITAL TYCOON TO RETAIL STORES NATIONWIDE

Burbank, CA - Tuesday, June 5, 2007 - Give your PC the vaccination that six
> out of
> seven leading physicians recommend with Codemasters' announcement that
> Hospital Tycoon(TM)
> has shipped to retail. Fusing 'Tycoon' style gameplay with character
> simulation
> and a light-hearted narrative, Hospital Tycoon gives gamers that soap opera
> feel
> as they play through this year's best medical drama. Hospital Tycoon is
> available
> now for the PC for an SRP of $29.99 and is rated "E10+" (Everyone 10 and
> older -
> Crude Humor, Mild Suggestive Themes, Mild Violence - content that may be
> suitable
> for persons ages 10 and older) by the ESRB.
> At the Sapphire Beach Medical Institute, the lives and loves of the
> hospital's doctors
> and nurses, as well as the sneezes and diseases of its patients, will come
> alive.
> In Hospital Tycoon, players take on the role of Hospital Director and take
> charge
> of the medical staff, keeping an eye on the patient numbers and making sure
> each
> facility has the equipment required to keep those cures coming through.
> Players
> will explore a plot involving certain members of the hospital's staff and
> some very
> interesting patients, while at the same time challenging them 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 they'll soon have an epidemic running riot throughout the facility.
> For more information on Hospital Tycoon, please be sure to visit the official
> website
