Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition coming to Steam!

Hey everyone!

The moment you've been waiting for is finally here! Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition will be coming to Steam! Teeth, eyes, corridor - everything you ever wished for!

Here's the trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35Mo1WvtKD8

The NEW VERSION of the critically acclaimed, BAFTA-nominated, one-handed, clumsy, bumbling, surgery simulation game has now (almost) arrived on Steam! Operate one of would-be surgeon Nigel Burke’s flailing arms, in an attempt to perform life-saving surgery on his peaceful and trusting patient, Bob.

In the super-elite Anniversary Edition, Nigel’s surgical adventures will take him through over 20 operations and across 5 different locations, including the new eye and teeth transplants, corridors, ambulance and space. There are now over 100 achievements for you to collect and admire. Aren’t you lucky?

If you already own the game, you'll just need to buy the DLC pack, and that will upgrade you to the new version with all of the new stuff. We wouldn't make you buy the game again. That would be terrible!

If you have any questions, we'll be in the forums or on Twitter.

Cheers!

“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!

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.

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.

Unfortunately although I really enjoy this game, it's not worth the $10 as it is a game that you see on youtube and it looks funny but then when you play it, it's much less enjoyable and only play it for a few hours then never touch it again. The physics is fun to play around with as well as the controls and the patients face, but it will get boring very quickly.

TL:DR
You'll only play for a max of 5hrs and never touch it again. Although I'm going to score it off of its gameplay. 7.5/10.

The controles are a bit hard but other then that it's ok.
I have nothing against this game but since there's blood and time limits and stuff, it just makes it harder to play.
To be honest, when I first got this game I thought it would be grat. Since I had played the demo online, I thought it would be a nice challenge. I was so wrong. The demo made it look easy but once I started playing the actual thing, I was so annoyed.
It's a great game for people who want a challenge. I'd say it's alright. :)

Wow, this game is so amusing, yet so fun! All aspects of a quality game are hear, even though the controls take a little while to master, you will get the hang of it and enjoy messing around with this game! I have thoroughly enjoyed the game so far, love the difficulty, love the options. Great game! 8.5/10

A novel kind of fun, this game is an interesting little experience and is fun to watch others try, but doesn't have much in the way of legs (maybe the surgeon cut them off..?). I enjoyed it, but to play it as much more than a novel experience or a game to challenge yourself to obtaining achievements for, you will probably be a bit dissapointed. Regardless, should it find it self on a convincing enough sale, I'd still reccomend it.
