UK-based developer Bossa Studios has demonstrated huge commitment to virtual reality (VR) over the past few years. Not only has the studio hosted a number of VR community meetup events at its London office but it has even added support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) into its hit comedic videogame, Surgeon Simulator. Today sees the developer celebrate a new milestone as it has announced that its hit PC title has sold over two million copies.
Surgeon Simulation is currently available on PlayStation 4, PC and iOS devices. In fact Bossa Studios has even launched a sale for the latter two versions. The standard version of the surreal experience is currently available for just £1.74 GBP while the Anniversary Edition, which adds new content, can be picked up for £2.24. The iOS version is now available for £1.49.
First launching in 2013, Surgeon Simulator tasks players with carrying out complex operations while burdening them with deliberately clumsy controls. This often leads to comically disastrous situations as the player tries to replace vital organs and more. While the PC version supports Oculus Rift already, support for the Project Morpheus HMD on PlayStation 4 is expected later on down the line.
“Thanks to everyone who has played Surgeon Simulator and made it such a global success,” Bossa Studios’ Henrique Olifiers said of the news. “It has been really amazing to see this title go from a game jam project to a full release across multiple formats and is testament to the originality and creativity we nurture here at Bossa Studios.”
Recently Bossa Studios released another title boasting the team’s unmistakeable brand of humour in I Am Bread. Another VR compatible title is also said to be in the works. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all VR compatible videogames, reporting back with any further updates on them.
