Surgeon Simulator ARG Yields Out Of This World Secret

By Nathan Grayson on September 28th, 2013 at 2:00 pm.

Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not a really, really different kind of doctor.

Well, that didn’t take long. Like an expert surgeon carving out cavities and worming sausage-fingers indiscriminately between guts, Bossa recently stuffed an ARG into Surgeon Simulator 2013′s latest update. For hours – no, more than a whole day – Codename: Trisha had the game’s community stumped. But then, finally, after many long, sleepless nights, a solution beamed into view. Bizarre, cryptic messages? Wild numerical spews? Enough video tapes to construct a pyramid that’d awe even the most complacent of mice? What could it all mean? Go below to find out.

Alien surgery! Specifically, you have to perform a gobbleshaft transplant, which is I guess a very delicate procedure? Why else would beings both physically and technologically light-years ahead of us enlist the aid of the world’s best… er, um… greatest… except, well… hrm. Anyway, moving on.

There are five other equally mystifying procedures on top of that, and also a few entirely perplexing alien surgical tools to help you cut, squish, and hemorrhage your way to victory.

If it’s been a while since you donned your, um, watch and maybe washed your hands for a Surgeon Sim operation, there’s now also the option to help TF2′s Heavy with that whole “having viscera” problem he won’t stop bellyaching about. So basically, Surgeon Simulator’s only gotten more ridiculous with time – kind of like a fine wine except gobbleshaft. I mean, really, it’s no wonder gamers make better surgeons. Compared to this stuff, real surgery must be a total cakewalk. Who wants to let me test my theory? Don’t worry: I charge fantastic rates.

    All this game needs now is Zoidberg as a playable character.

    No probing, no sale.

    It took me a little while to piece how to do this together from various vague forum threads. Partly beacose i had scores for both the in space surgeries in the menu so i assumed i had done them. I had not. And to find this secret you have to enter a key into the keypad on the third surgery which only unlocks when you have done the two prior.

    But damn. Those alien surgeries are fun. If a tad confusing. You kinda have to guess the organ based off the name. So the pewball is the big glowey ball near the bottom. But totally worth it.

    This is what scientists were doing in X-COM

    This is why we love videogames.
