Former Valve scribe Chet Faliszek, best known for his work on the Portal and Left 4 Dead games, along with the Half-Life 2 episodic expansions, has joined Bossa Studios.
In April 2013 superstar YouTuber PewDiePie played Surgeon Simulator, a game about clumsily performing operations, and made a video about it. It's had 11.5m views.
The doctor is in! Sadly, the doctor in question is Ian Higton, and he's going to make a terrible mess of your chest cavity.
Doctor training game Surgeon Simulator is "soon" making its way to PS4, developer Bossa has announced.
UPDATE 13/03/2014: We've heard back from Bossa about Surgeon Simulator's multiplayer. According to the developer, this new mode has two players compete with each other to complete a surgery the fastest.
Surgeon Simulator developer Bossa Studios has shown off the game's painful-looking eye operations in a new teaser trailer.
Comedy operation game Surgeon Simulator is to get a dentist-themed mode for iPad, developer Bossa Studios has revealed.
Surgeon Simulator 2013's alternate-reality game Codename: Trisha has been cracked. The reward: alien surgery.
Surgeon Simulator 2013's new content is out of this world... literally. Developer Bossa Studios has added an update allowing player character Nigel to continue his life-saving escapades in space. Finally, you can see what it's like to perform Brain Surgery and Kidney Surgery in zero gravity.
Surgeon Simulator 2013 players can now operate on the Medic and Heavy from Valve's Team Fortress 2.
The update that adds the characters is free to those who already own the game, which is £6.99 on Steam.
The Medic and Heavy play Nigel and Bob in the game, and the whole thing came about after developer Bossa Studios was inspired by Valve's Meet The Medic video.
There are a ridiculous number of awesome games playable at Rezzed this coming weekend, but today we're also happy to reveal the presence of at least one ridiculous game.
When people find out I'm a surgeon, they always ask me what the hardest part of the job is. It's breaking the news, right? You know: the waiting room, the expectant family, the nervous shuffling of feet.
No, I tell them (idiots). That's not actually true at all. The hardest part of the job is holding your claw hammer correctly so you can provide enough force to bash a man's ribs to pieces with one blow. That stuff really takes it out of you.
Still, breaking the news isn't easy, I guess. I've chiseled your husband's lungs out, but I'm afraid my electric drill got stuck on a kidney. I tried knocking it free with a coffee cup, but the cup got lodged in there too. Then his pancreas fell off without me even touching it. And I dropped a Coke bottle into his intestines. After that my scalpel became wedged in a plug socket for a few minutes. Then my wristwatch came loose. Are you paying by card?
A fifth set of indie games have been voted for release on Steam via the Steam Greenlight initiative.
Surgeon Simulator 2013 could become a physical comedy classic. It marries the hilariously unwieldy controls of the famed Flash game QWOP with the morbid humour of Operation.
