Bossa Studios, the developer behind the cult classic Surgeon Simulator and the recently released Surgeon Simulator 2, has taken the bold step of making Surgeon Simulator 2 free for doctors, nurses, and surgeons working in Britain’s National Health Service. To get your copy, all you need is a working NHS email address, a PC, and this link.
The Surgeon Simulator franchise is known for its antic, physics-based model of surgery; it is in no way similar to the actual thing itself, which for casual players is a blessing. “Surgeon Simulator 2 is absolutely NOT a viable medical training tool,” said Dr. Idris Morgan in a press release. Morgan is a real doctor who also streams and makes YouTube videos under the name Doctor Mim.
“However, I do enjoy playing video games in my spare time and I’m confident medical professionals around the world will find Bossa’s interpretation of medicine, and the possibility of five-second heart-transplants, very amusing,” Morgan added.
Truly. Surgeon Simulator 2 is out now on the Epic Games Store. And more importantly: NHS workers can pick up their free copies of the game until October 22nd.
