    More Bullfrog love from GoG: Theme Hospital

    http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/theme_hospital

    This is a gem. Go buy it now. Play it. You will smile.

    I played this many times over. The style, the various treatments and diseases, making sure your hospital is clear of vomit, have enough restrooms, patients with short wait times. Game is rather zany and entertaining all the way through. Classic that still holds up to this day and can be enjoyed.

    Got a boxed version. My brother and I still break out the random TH announcer impressions when need be.

    I need a good tycoon/management game in my life, and somehow I never played Theme Hospital. I am compelled to buy and play it this very moment.

    You absolutely should. Still probably one of the best management sims ever made and probably my favourite Bullfrog game. Basically Theme Hospital is the sole reason I still take Molyneux seriously.

    Beware the secret rat level. It's basically a gallery shooter.

    It's pretty much a benchmark for other games. Easily one of the best of the lot.

    Also scarily in some ways mirrors real life...

    Does anyone know who gets the money? Is it the original Bullfrog devs?
    I think EA still owns the IP so maybe it's them who gets it?

    As far as I know, it goes to whoever owns the IP, doesn't it? I don't think the original dev team get anything. Not to mention you'd have to track them all down...

    It'd go to EA, as Bullfrog don't exist anymore.

    I'm sure, with proper sleuthing, Stormbane can find the names of people to give checks to.
