Surgeon Simulator Has Come To HTC Vive with Surgeon Simulator VR: Meet The Medic



Got a HTC Vive and want a FREE copy of Surgeon Simulator VR: Meet The Medic.? Just click that, then!

Surgeon Simulator VR: Meet the Medic allows you to step into the shoes of Team Fortress 2’s The Medic, where only you can save The Heavy as his life ebbs away before your very eyes.

This brand-new virtual reality experience from Bossa Studios reunites two of TF2’s most-loved characters, who were originally brought to Surgeon Simulator back in 2013. Now, fresh into the VR stage, where you perform life-changing surgery under the gentle gaze of Archimedes, the dove from Valve’s hit game.

Poke with a pencil, slash with a machete, chop with an axe, perform delicate tasks with a baseball bat; but be careful…time is ticking.

“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%

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. Curious to know how Bob, the patient ended up on the operating table? Check out 'I am Bread' - the prequel to Surgeon Simulator, also available on Steam!

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!
  • 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!

hmm what to say. the game is fiddly, frustrating fun and supremely difficult. i found the easiest way to complete the levels was to just get a hammer and wave it around until there is no more bones but it was fun to see what happened wen stabbed by the needles that there are. the reality physics could be a little more fine tuned because you can stick a needle in the patient and tear out everything you can kinda grab. the controls were hard but fun to see what the came out as. all in all it a great game you should buy it.

Control mechanics might be tricky at first (Think Edward Scissorhands trying to stroke a Kitten), but with practice comes much blood loss and many near death experiences perfection.
If you miss the manical laughter and sadistic 'oopsies' had in games like GTA when trying to be a do-good er but those crazy pedestrians just keep finding a way underneath your wheels, or walking into your fists whilst you're trying to make an honest living? Then this is probably up your street.
Try your patience with juggling to keep your patient alive in between surgical shenanigans:
don't fancy stabbing that eye to remove it for transplant? Perhaps spoon it out, or see if that ballpoint pen will suffice as a lever.
Be the first of your friends to have successfully performed heart surgery in the back of a moving van and in zero-gravity on Extraterrestrial life. Don't worry about what your pals think, just imagine that priceless look from a potential new employer when you tell them of your field hours and lack of exponential experience!

10/10 would skip med school to play this.

I've never laughed so much playing a game. For the first half hour. Then it started to get quite frustrating. It's a superb idea, hilariously executed, but it's maybe not quite realised as a game. Recommended for half an hour of hilarity, preferably with friends.

completing a level in this game is like trying to write a letter on drugs. You just can't do it! It's just such a pain in the butt to complete a level, so only play this game if you can withstand a million hours of failure.

This game is amazing, I mean I knew that from the moment I saw the achievement that was completed when you made bob wear his own intestine as a SCARF. I definitely reccomend this game to everyone who is planning to be a surgeon as this game is good practise how to be a good surgeon.


BTW: They should add a kill counter for Bob. If it was in the game it would've already hit 300 by now.....

Somewhat frustrating at times, but if you want to giggle until you're ready to soil yourself then this game might get you there. You just have to get used to the controls.
If you go in while in a reasonable mood, you'll find hours of fun and comedy - so many ways to kill a patient! You can also electrocute and drug yourself to make it more...colourful.
If you go in while in a bad mood, you may find yourself getting more stressed out that you can't complete a level due to not holding an instrument properly or dropping a brain on the floor.
9 / 10 from me.

This game is fun at first but then gets very frustrating. If you actually want to complete the surgery it will get you irate with the terrible controls and learning curve. I wish they would let you attempt the other surgeries before having to complete them in order to advance..

Love this game! the controls may be clunky and frustrating, but that is definitely the charm of it, and finally getting some of the achivements (Corridor Teeth Transplant in under 2 minutes 20) really does give you a sense of pride.

If surgery in real life was like this, I'd definitely be in a different profession!

This is game is one of the best dark humor games. It also has plenty of content (which takes forever to finish) and tons easter eggs. You get to do whatever you can't do in an actual surgery, whether its drilling a hole into your patient's skull, blowing up baboon hearts, or slapping him with his own intestines. What else do you want? GET IT! NOW!

Okay...this game is fun for the first couple surgeries but it soon becomes boring. If you try to actually perform a "successful" surgery then be prepared to become VERY annoyed. The small glitches and clunkyness is also frowned upon.

I honestly want nothing more to do with this game...RIP $10

I managed to destroy my first patient Bob in just a few minutes. I tried to save him again two times more and with every try, something more horrible went wrong. RIP Bob.

After playing this, you just might be ready for the real deal.

Beyond the absurdity and the humor, Surgeon Simulator can only offer frustration. Poor controls are taken as a core design philosophy and buttressed with any restrictive obstacle that came to mind. This is not the hilarious but humbling exercise of realizing how difficult complicated basic movement really is, this is a constant fight against a game that not only has to struggle to understand what the player wants it to do but also has trouble preventing objects from phasing in and out of each other. The lesson this game has to teach, what it demands of its players, is that they put aside the anger born of uncooperative controls to practice patience and precision in a world that has none. It's quite clever really. Shame all that's left to look back on is annoyance after annoyance, which increases level by level in the name of some sense of progression.

You play Dr Nigel Burke, or as I like to call him "DR ♥♥♥♥ING BUTTER FINGERS", who seems to have the motor skills of a drunk octopus (which isn't surprising considering the bottle of Diazepam pills in each level..).

I was going to write a review, but I have to perform an important surgery which is in dire need of my butter fingers.. All in a days work for the Best Surgeon in the Universe.
