Surgeon Simulator Updated for iPad; New Languages, New Test Subject

Surgeon Simulator's first update goes live on the iOS. As if it wasn't difficult enough on the PC..

*Caution: Expletives in the above video; you were warned!*Surgeon Simulator--developed by Bossa Studios--has just released its newest iPad update that features include 13 new languages and a new patient to deal with.That patient being an alien, obviously. The new languages are: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Dutch and Portuguese.Released only last month as an iOS app, Surgeon Simulator has already been received with a fantastic response from the platform's community, making it into the top 3 best sellers in all English-speaking countries.It initially came out in April 2013 on Steam, and made it into the top 10 best sellers at the time of its release.The game has now sold over one million copies, and quickly became a viral YouTube sensation. The 15 most viewed Surgeon Simulator videos stack up to an insane 17.1 million views.What is more startling, given the game's volume of sales, is that it was developed in just 48 hours at the 2013 Global Game Jam in January. Its success has also been acknowledged by BAFTA, who nominated it for a Games Award in the category "Strategy and Simulation in 2014."You can buy the game now on the App Store here for $5.99. If you're feeling a bit zany (or live in the UK), you can buy it for £3.99. Check out the video above for a glimpse into the PC version of the update.
