    Two Point Hospital is a quirky hospital sim builder developed by Two Point Studios and published by SEGA. For those of you who recall playing EA’s Theme Hospital back in the late 90’s, Two Point Hospital will have you feeling nostalgia as the two games are very similar with Two Point Hospital feeling just like an updated version.

    Story & Content:

    Two Point Hospital lacks a story line but that doesn’t mean it lacks personality. Every patient that comes into your hospital will have a quirky disease that needs to be taken care of by an even wackier medical contraption.

    Sound & Music:

    While you are treating your patients, there are occasional announcements over the intercom and a radio station with a funny DJ. These little touches along with a very fitting cartoon art style, work well together to bring out the personality of Two Point Hospital and help you not miss a story line.

    Gameplay:

    The gameplay is quite simple and in-line with the usual sim builder games. Within 15 levels you build various rooms, hire staff to run them and once you have everything you need, the game will run itself while you watch. There are a few other options like making your hospital look visually appealing, making sure your patients don’t get bored, putting sanitation centers to insure the cleanliness of the hospital, and training your staff, but these aspects are also very limited. The simplicity of this game-play led for a very relaxing afternoon but I felt like the game needed more context to keep me playing it.

    Final Thoughts:

    The game runs for $34.99 on Steam and with the amount of content it has now, this price seems to be quite steep and (to those not accustomed to Tycoon games) might not be worth it. However, when this game can be found on sale, purchasing it would be recommended if you are looking for a funny and relaxing sim builder.

    A Reddit user has shared the exciting response he got from Kan Gao, who is the designer, writer, composer, and director of popular game To The Moon.

    In the exchange between the user and the developer, the user enthusiastically asks whether there are any plans for the game to come to Nintendo Switch. Although rather cryptic, the developer appears to confirm a Switch release (or at least plans for one) in his reply.

    A screen capture of messages exchanged between the Reddit user and game developer Kan Gao

    However, it’s important to bear in mind that an official announcement confirming the port has not yet been made.

    About the game:

    To The Moon is a Story-Rich indie Adventure game with a plot somewhat reminiscent of popular sci-fi thriller series Black Mirror. Although the game was released for Windows back in 2011, it is still highly regarded. This is evident with ‘overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews on Steam (where the game is often praised for its emotive narrative), and in the fact that the game was also released for MacOS and Linux in 2014, and for Android and iOS in 2017. 

    Story: (Contains some spoilers)

    To The Moon features two doctors who are capable of giving patients on their deathbeds another chance to live, right from the beginning. The only catch is that the experience is only in the patient’s head, and that they will die once they reach the end of that life.

    The game focuses on an elderly patient named Johnny, and the two doctors’ attempt to fulfill his lifelong dream. As they uncover fragments of his past, it becomes as ‘clear as day’ that Johnny only ever had one real wish; To go ‘To The Moon’.

    Now you’ll have to excuse us for wishing the year away. But following on from the announcement of a certain much awaited Switch game, we decided it would be nice to compile a list of all the games of 2019 that we are very much looking forward to playing.

    Ikenfell

    Ikenfell is a JRPG game which utilizes turn-based and timing-based battle mechanics. The game’s publisher is Humble Bundle, and its platforms are PC, Mac and possibly Linux. Humble Bundle are helping to polish the game, market it, and will hopefully add it to Steam in 2019. It was hoped that the game would be released this year, but the developers recently announced the postponing of it until next year. This is because they want to deliver a top-quality, flawless game, and would rather development took a little longer to achieve this, as opposed to rushing the game and compromising its quality.

    Mineko’s Night Market

    Mineko’s Night Market is a cute cat-themed upcoming game for PC, Mac and Switch by Meowza games. You play as Mineko, a girl who has just moved to a superstitious island overrun with cats. The aim of the game is to find materials, craft items and sell them at the Night Market. You can befriend villagers, fish, undertake quests, play mini-games, plus more! Whilst it was initially hoped that the game would be released in late 2018, its release has now been pushed back until 2019.

    Kingdom Hearts III

    Kingdom Hearts III is an upcoming action RPG game that is being developed and published by Square Enix. The game will initially be released for PS4 and Xbox One. Kingdom Hearts III is set in an array of Disney and Pixar worlds. The game features Sora, a young boy and unknowing heir to a spectacular power. Sora is accompanied by popular Disney characters such as Donald Duck and Goofy who attempt to stop an evil force known as the Heartless from invading and taking over.

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe

    Super Mario Bros U was one of the top games released for the WiiU. Like Mario Kart 8, the game has got the Deluxe treatment and will soon be making its way to the popular Switch console. Choose to play as Mario, Luigi or Toad, or as Nabbit and Toadette, who also feature in the game. The ‘New Super Luigi U’ WiiU game expansion comes included in the Switch’s deluxe version.

    Animal Crossing Switch

    After the wait became almost unbearable, Nintendo nonchalantly confirmed Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch during their recent Nintendo Direct. Whilst not much information about game content is known yet, the game is set to be released in 2019.

    Whilst we await more information about the game, here’s a meme to entertain you:

    Yoshi’s Crafted World

    Yoshi’s Crafted World (formerly known by it’s working title of ‘Yoshi’) is an upcoming side-scrolling platform game for Nintendo Switch. It was announced at E3 2017, and is set to be released in Spring 2019. Like prior Yoshi games, players can use Yoshi’s tongue to eat enemies or other objects, turn them into eggs, or throw them outwardly into the level. The game features 3D characters on a 2D plane and allows players to view the game from two opposing viewpoints.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps is an upcoming platform-adventure Metroidvania game. It is being developed by Moon Studios, published by Microsoft (for Windows and Xbox One), and will hopefully be released at some point in 2019. The game is a sequel to the critically acclaimed 2015 game Ori and the Blind Forest. The story is based on a new adventure where Ori seeks to discover the world beyond the forest of Nibel, uncover the truths of the lost ones, and unearth his true destiny.

    Initially released on Steam back in 2016, Stardew Valley is a Harvest Moon-reminiscent RPG farming simulation with pixel graphics. Developed by ConcernedApe and published by Chucklefish, the game was very well received. It currently holds a 10/10 rating on Steam where it also has ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews.

    Game features include:

    • Raising animals, growing crops and improving your farm
    • Improving skills in 5 different areas (farming, mining, combat, fishing, and foraging)
    • A variety of complex characters, places, enigmas, and secrets to discover
    • Diversity in character customization and dating
    • Over two hours of original music.

    Stardew Valley has obtained a 10/10 rating on Steam, received numerous ports for a variety of platforms, and is still a chart topper on the Nintendo Switch eShop. It’s, therefore, safe to say that the game is highly regarded and popular.

    The highly anticipated multiplayer update for the PC version of the game was released on 1st August 2018.

    Multiplayer update features include:

    • The ability to play with up to 3 others in online co-op
    • A 3-day travelling festival where farmers can come and go as they please
    • A mysterious new winter event that enables farmers to start a new ‘secret’ collection type
    • Farmers who have made great progress will be given the opportunity to help out a townsperson
    • New character events
    • Changes to the Skull Cavern
    • Ability to change your profession
    • Ability to craft signs
    • New outdoor decorations
    • Introduction of the auto-grabber, an expensive item that automatically harvests milk and wool
    • Introduction of garden pots. Garden pots allow you to grow any crop inside year-round
    • A new crop that only grows indoors
    • Fireplaces and new furniture
    • Ability to put a hat on your horse

    The solo developer of Stardew Valley (ConcernedApe) has previously announced that the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions of the game will also get a multiplayer update eventually. The developer has confirmed in tweets and updates that the co-op will not be cross-platform. As disappointing as this is for fans to hear, the decision is understandable.

    Whilst an exact date hasn’t been given, the game’s publisher (Chucklefish) has recently confirmed that Stardew Valley for Switch will be next to receive the Multiplayer update. Having been submitted for final approval, it is expected that the update will be available either by the end of the year or in early 2019.

    [dropcap]F[/dropcap]ans of the RollerCoaster Tycoon games (which simulate theme park management), will be pleased to learn that a similar game entitled Parkitect is now available to play on Steam.

    Parkitect is a sandbox theme-park construction-management game for Windows, Mac, and Linux. After a two-year early access period, the game was released worldwide yesterday, 29th November 2018.

    Developed and published by Texel Raptor, Parkitect shares the premise of RollerCoaster Tycoon games: To build a successful theme park. Players are able to build rides, design and manage the park, and tasked with keeping their guests happy.

    Parkitect differentiates from RollerCoaster Tycoon in that it offers players features such as:

    • Staff buildings
    • Resource depots
    • Hidden staff-only areas
    • A branching map system

    Parkitect can be purchased on Steam, where it currently holds a 9/10 rating and has very positive reviews, for a modest price of $29.99.

    With the abundance of negative reviews expressing disappointment in Atari’s RollerCoaster Tycoon World, could Parkitect be destined for success like the popular 2016 game Planet Coaster?
