Recently it was announced that Project Hospital would be released on October 30th 2018. With that announcement Oxymoron Games decided to give some of us a little preview of the game, and I greatly appreciate being one of the people getting to preview this long-awaited game.
For those that aren’t aware, Project Hospital is a tycoon style management game. It is done in quite a realistic way, you will need to build rooms to deal with any number of issues ranging from the common cold to more severe issues requiring surgery. You will need to manage staff for both a night and day shift,from doctors down to janitors each with specific needs.
The game will start you off with a few short and easy to follow tutorials. They will guide you thru the basics of hiring and building of a hospital. It will prepare you adequately tho they do leave quite a bit for you to figure out on your own. That isn’t a bad thing, none of it is to hard just there really. But how bout the game play and the graphics?
Well graphically the game looks pretty good. It won’t win any awards or blow your mind but it gets the job done. The sound also falls into the same category really if I am being honest. Admittedly I have never met anyone that plays a tycoon game and does it for graphics and sound. It is all about the game play and functionality, and outside of a few minor issues that can easily be fixed by the time the game launches the game really shines in this department. One example is for some reason when placing an employee in a room the employee was offset from where my mouse was by a good 2 or 3 inches. Janitors also seem to act pretty odd at times but they warned us about that going into the whole thing as well.
At the end of the day the preview version is a late build beta with a few things still to be added and polish to be done and just over 2 months until release. With that much time clearly things will be improved. Before plaything this I was looking forward to the game, and now I am down right excited. October 30th will be a good time for tycoon fans. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
