That OTHER game we've been working on, 'I AM BREAD' - is now available on Steam. It's in early access, which means that you get to head to the forums and tell us exactly what you'd like to see in the game before we finish it.

Want in on that action? Here you go:

Make sure you let us know which game you think is harder - there's a 50/50 split on opinion at the moment.

Cheers!

Reviews

“Few games take that odd, occasional gulf between what you intend to happen and what actually occurs on screen and fill it with such comedy.” Edge
“No matter how sophisticated you like your humour, seeing someone fail under the influence of a goofy physics engine is always funny.” The Guardian
“Famously (and intentionally) difficult to control and often hilarious, this game requires a strong stomach and no morals whatsoever.” Red Bull
“Surgeon Simulator 2013 is hardly a simulation, but it makes medical malpractice an absolute delight.” Gamespot 80%

About This Game

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.

IF YOU WANT ANNIVERSARY EDITION AND ALREADY OWN THIS GAME, YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE THE DLC PACK TO UPGRADE.

NOW AVAILABLE IN THE FOLLOWING LANGUAGES: FRANÇAIS, DEUTSCH, ESPAÑOL, ITALIANO, NORSK, SVENSKA, DANSK, SUOMI, NEDERLANDSE, PORTUGUÊS DO BRASIL, POLSKI, РУССКИЙ

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.

Key Features

  • TF2 mode – be the Medic and operate on the Heavy!
  • Be Nigel! Surgeon Sim now supports the Oculus Rift and Razer Hydra.
  • New achievements to explore and brag about!
  • More operations including double kidney transplant and brain transplant
  • New visuals and a pumping new soundtrack
  • Alien autopsy level!

The Three things I have learned from Surgeon Simulator:

1) You are most likely not to get sued if you leave a scalpel in someones stomache at the end of a surgery.
2) Ripping someone's heart out during surgery and slapping the patient's face with it is totally legal.
3) Intestines make a great scarf.

Conclusion: Why the hell not buy this game?

In Surgeon Simulator 2013 you control Nigel Burke, a guy who can't even tie his shoe laces without making "finger spaghetti" out of himself. Anyway, you control his fingers and thumb using the keyboard, which works well at simulating a hand. The controls can get a little frustrating, however I think that was a little on purpose. Now, most of you are all wondering the same question: Does it have a good story? Yes. It shows a man who poses a lack of hand motor skills and has a dream of becoming a surgeon, the best surgeon, but you are the only one who can fulfil his dream.
The story and game play intertwine nicely and always makes you ask the same question: Was it worth it? As you stare down at the life insurance fee, was it worth it...? That aside, the game has three different types of surgery: Heart Transplant, Kidney Transplant and the Brain Transplant. They all are extremely fun and varied and include funny references, while you Tomahawk Chop someone in the skull. There is also a few secret levels, which I won't tell you about since they are...secret. Just go easy on the heavy (I've given my condolences to enough Team Fortress characters).

In a nutshell, Surgeon Simulator controls well, Has frustratingly-fun levels and even the starting menu provided for several minutes of fun.

NOTE: This is my first review, so I know it isn't that good, however I hope to get better as I write more.

This is an awesome game and it really brings out my evil laugh. Do not take this game too seriously, and the impossible controls is what makes the so fun. Perfect ending after a long night of gaming at 4:30am :-)

This game is just... hilarious. Trying to figure how you're supposed to do the operations is one part of the equation. Doing it without brutally murdering the patient is the other part. It's going to take a lot of practice (and held laughter) to get through this game.
