Fans of classic video game Theme Hospital will be happy to hear the new version is even better
Oh no. We can already feel all of our free time ebbing away...
Back in 1997, Theme Hospital was released upon the unsuspecting public, and quickly became some kind of time-consuming demon in player's lives.
You'd click on for "a quick game", and before you knew what was happening, several days have passed by, you've been fired from your job because you haven't showed up for work, your significant other has already left you because you've forgotten to wash yourself, and your pet has left you to live with a more attentive family.
It was part of those "God games" that were very much zeitgeist-y in the late 90s, along with Theme Park, which eventually led on to the likes of The Sims.
And now the spiritual sequel has arrived in the form of Two-Point Hospital, and oh no, we're going to be late for work literally every day this month...
