We're happy to announce Project Hospital 1.1, a major update with some of the most requested features, user experience improvements and Workshop support!

This update contains roughly four months of work, already in production during the last two patches - because of the nature of the new features and content it made sense to test and balance everything together.
We really hope you enjoy the new version and we're looking forward to what you come up with for the workshop!

Project Hospital is a very realistic hospital game that looks a lot like Habbo. But the problem is, hospitals aren t very fun places to be, are they? Which is why games like Two Point Hospital make them humorous and less realistic, because depending on the reason you re in hospital, they tend to exist for bad things, right? Not always, I mean you could be having a child I suppose, or some life-changing surgery, but I ve never been to a hospital for something good. Last time I was in hospital was for an allergy test. Having tiny little needles pricking your arm, and then hanging around and waiting for a reaction is not the most fun I ve had (turns out, I m not allergic to anything, despite an horrific reaction to something> a few Gamescoms ago).
