Bossa Studios has announced it is giving away Surgeon Simulator 2 to all NHS staff for free, and the promotion will be available until October 22nd. Now, I think this is a thank you from Bossa but Bossa says it is giving away Surgeon Simulator 2 because it would be a great training tool for NHS staff. The studio is calling this initiative NHS: National Handout of Surgeon Simulator initiative – or NHSNHSS for short. To claim a copy of Surgeon Simulator 2 for PC NHS staff need to go to the official site, and put in an official NHS email.
Henrique Olifiers, Bossa Studios’ Gamer-in-Chief and CEO, said:
“At Bossa, we’ve always envisioned Surgeon Simulator 2 as a valuable training tool for NHS workers to hone their healthcare skills! The Surgeon Simulator 2 community is frankly rubbish at saving Bob, so we think our players need to be shown how it’s really done.”
While this is a nice gesture from Bossa, actual doctor Dr. Idris Morgan weighed in and said:
“Surgeon Simulator 2 is absolutely NOT a viable medical training tool Professionals around the world will find Bossa’s interpretation of medicine, and the possibility of five-second heart-transplants, very amusing.”
Surgeon Simulator 2 is a vastly expanded game on the wacky surgeon-ish action of the original game. While there’s still plenty of accident prone digging around in various surgical scenarios, you can now step away from the surgeon’s table and get up to all manner of other things. There’s 12 operations in the game, and you can wander to go and pick up tools in other rooms, share the space with full four player co-op to the game. There can even be some Dr. Frankenstein-esque person creation! There’s also the Bossa Labs Creation Workshop built into the game, letting you create in the game. You can simply customise your character, create scenarios, build new levels and more. In fact, players have already been creating all manner of things in the game.
