Bossa Studios is on the Traitors of America list, so it should come as no surprise that the release date trailer for Surgeon Simulator 2 is filled with POCkers and feminist-approved character designs. They also revealed that the game is set to launch August 27th as an Epic Games Store timed exclusive, making it a triple threat that should have any sane person just saying “No!”.
The release date was rolled out in a Creation Mode trailer, which outlines Bossa’s step away from simply playing a video game version of the popular board game Surgeon, and instead dabbling in what could only be described as a non-broken version of Garry’s Mod.
The trailer opens with a “diverse” cast of surgeons operating on a patient, but that doesn’t last long as they shift focus to creating, building, and destroying things in a variety of unconventional ways.
The Creation Mode really is a far-cry from what Surgeon Simulator is supposed to be. As mentioned above, you have a lot of creative power at your fingertips, not unlike Garry’s Mod… only you don’t have access to as many custom skins, nor do you have access to some of the cool custom weapons.
I don’t know exactly who this game is aiming to appeal to, but the quirky physics-based (mis)handling of body parts and surgical equipment seems to be taking a backseat in the sequel.
Worse yet is that the game is now going to be a timed Exclusive on the Epic Games Store. I just don’t see what the appeal is of making people hate your game, but Bossa Studios is definitely all-in on that endeavor. I’m almost shocked they didn’t have one of the characters come out and say “I’m gay!” just to rack up those extra intersectional mentally ill points.
Anyway, Surgeon Simulator 2 is due out August 27th on PC.
