Surgeon Simulator 2013 now available for Linux!

Posted by , | Views: 7,526

Well that's an odd game, Surgeon Simulator 2013 is now available on Steam for Linux, time to scrub up!

Surgeon Simulator 2013 is a darkly humorous over-the-top operation sim game where players become Nigel Burke, a would-be surgeon taking life into his own shaky hands, performing life-saving surgical maneuvers on passive patients.

The original prototype – developed in just 48 hours at the 2013 Global Game Jam in January – challenged players to complete a heart transplant, armed only with an arsenal of clumsy and inappropriate tools and a hand that was diabolically difficult to control, using a combination of keyboard and mouse actions.

The full Steam version comes with additional features, operations and environments. From carrying out terrifying transplants in theatre to surgical procedures in the back of an ambulance, Surgeon Simulator 2013 now takes operating to the next level.

What do you guys think to this one then? Sounds like it could be quite amusing, if a little gross!

Good fun for a couple of hours -- can be incredibly frustrating at times though.

I did a quick video on it here (contains "spoilers", if you didn't already know what the twist was):

This game is pretty fun. A bit challenging at times. Controls have a steep learning curve, but it's pretty fun. I can spend hours just in the menu playing with all the items on the desk, LOL. I really enjoy this one. Just be careful when going to pick up the Green needle; lol...i have messed up a few good surgery's by doing that
