Recently, Sega and Two Point Studios announced a hilarious Theme Hospital successor called Two Point Hospital. While the announcement trailer was quirky and featured a fictitious disease known as "Light-Headedness", it didn't showcase how characters reacted to one another. Today, Lead Designer Ben Huskins and Lead Animator Chris Knott talked us through the little nuances of character interaction in the game that will bring players' hospitals to life.
Two Point Hospital isn't just about treating lightbulbs, it involves managing a hospital and taking care of patients with bizarre ailments. The game, from the creators of Theme Hospital, is set to be a return to one of gaming's most loved simulator genres. Two Point Hospital draws on the experience of some the gaming industry's most experienced and successful developers who, between them, have worked on titles like Black and White, Fable, and Theme Park.
The hospital environment is quite chaotic and the gameplay captures that. Not only do you have to manage patients receiving treatments, but factors like wait times and how other people will be affected by an out-of-control situation must be considered.
Sega says that Two Point Hospital is coming to PC in late 2018. Hopefully the game will live up to expectations. From what we've seen so far, Two Point Hospital's focus on humor is the right approach to tackling a hospital environment. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the project in the coming weeks.

Nice but I haven't seen crazy weird diseases like in the original.
Light-Headedness is pretty odd.
