Two Point Studios have put out some extensive new gameplay footage from Two Point Hospital’s first mission, set in what appears to be the quaint seaside towns of Hogsport. The residents of the town have all sorts of maladies, including lightheadedness, premature mummification, and my personal favourite - grey anatomy.
Mark Webley and Ben Hymers are here to take us through this, and they’re pretty well informed as two of the three co-founders of Two Point Studios. Together they’ve racked up experience working at Bullfrog and Lionhead making them the de facto godfathers of tycoons, and Two Point Hospital bears a lot more than a passing resemblance to one of their early works - Theme Hospital.
Unlike a lot of tycoon games that seem absolutely oblivious to the humour and charm that made the Theme series the giant it was, Two Point Hospital takes what is an altogether grim place and injects it with playfulness and light-hearted comedy.
Two Point Hospital is coming to PC later this year, and it’ll be published by Sega.
