Surgeon Simulator is getting a sequel

Audio player loading…

Indie frustration-peddler Surgeon Simulator was the game we were all swearing at in 2013 (shout-out to anyone who remembers when it was actually called Surgeon Simulator 2013). The initial version was made in 48 hours for the Global Game Jam, and Bossa Studios spent a further 48 days on getting the commercial version ready.

The sequel will be out next year, but though the trailer shows a bunch of Napoleon Dynamite-looking surgeons getting up to mischief it doesn't give away much about the actual game. According to the website (opens in new tab) there will be co-op and it sure does seem like it'll support four players.

Only the Epic storefront gets a logo in the trailer, and right now they're the only storefront with a page for it (opens in new tab).

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
